Japan Box Office: Warner’s ‘Death Note’ Ends ‘Your Name’ Dominance

TOKYO – “Death Note: Light up the New World,” the latest installment in a comic-based series depicting the fallout from death-dealing supernatural notebooks, topped the Japanese box office for the Oct. 29-30 weekend.

Released on 364 screens by Warner, the film earned $4.37 million on 342,000 admissions. This was nearly 40% less than the opening weekend take of the previous series entry, the 2006 “Death Note: The Last Name,” which finished with $49.5 million.

The box office leader for the past nine weekends, Toho’s animation “Your Name,” slipped to number two, but is still on track to finish near the $200 milestone.

The highest ranking new arrival in the top ten, at number three, was Sony’s “Inferno.”  Bowing on Friday, Oct. 28, the film recorded $2.5 million on 194,000 admissions for the weekend.
