Japan Box Office: ‘Jurassic World’ On Top For Third Weekend

TOKYO — “Jurassic World” topped the Japanese box office for the third weekend in a row. Released by Toho-Towa on 349 screens, the film earned $5.09 million on 379,000 admissions for the Aug. 22-23 frame. By its 19th day on release it had topped the 4 million admissions mark while driving its cumulative total close to $50 million. This makes it both the biggest hit of the summer and of the year to date in Japan.

“Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” held onto the number two spot with $3.08 million on 265,000 admissions, boosting its cumulative total to $29 million. By its 17th day on release, the Paramount film was 23% ahead of previous “Mission: Impossible” series entry “Ghost Protocol,” which finished with $46 million in 2012.

Meanwhile, Toho-Towa’s “Minions” again exceeded the JPY200 million ($1.7 million) earnings mark for the weekend to hold on to the number three slot.

The highest ranking Japanese film was the number four “The Boy and the Beast.” By its 44th day in theaters the Mamoru Hosoda animation, with Toho distributing, had recorded JPY5 billion ($43 million) in total earnings on nearly 4 million admissions.
