Japan Box Office: ‘Zootopia’ Wins Fourth Weekend

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.”

    Take a look at the photo above. It’s the most poetic image to have emerged from Todd Phillips’ “Joker,” and the reason I say “poetic” isn’t just because the shot has that caught-in-action indelible vibe of a quintessential movie poster: graphic, hauntingly composed, a bit shocking (at least, the first time you see it). It’s [...]
