TOKYO – Disney’s “Zootopia” was on top of the Japanese box office for the fourth consecutive weekend. The film earned $3.95 million on 324,000 admissions for the May 28-29 frame, bringing its cumulative total to $48 million on 4.12 million admissions.
Ranking highest among new entries to the top ten was Ryuichi Hiroki’s “Wolf Girl and Black Prince,” a teen romantic drama based on a popular girls’ comic about a socially insecure girl who begs a handsome schoolmate to fake a relationship to impress her friends – and he agrees on the condition that she become his ‘dog.’ Released on 285 screens with Warner distributing, the film recorded $2.1 million on 193,000 admissions and is expected to finish near the $20 million mark.
“The Huntsman: Winter’s War” opened in third place with Toho-Towa distributing on 587 screens. It took $1.04 million on 88,000 admissions. The film may struggle to reach the $10 million milestone, compared to the $15 million made by 2012 predecessor “Snow White and the Huntsman.”
