Japan Box Office: ‘High&Low 3’ Knocks ‘Thor’ Into Third Place

High&Low The Movie 3/ Final Mission,” the third and final installment in an action trilogy featured the all-male dancing and singing ensemble Exile Tribe, debuted atop the Japanese box office for the Nov. 11-12 weekend. Opening on 318 screens with Shochiku distributing, the film, which is part of a multi-media project that encompasses CDs, live performances and comics, earned $2.7 million on 237,000 admissions.

This was some 16% less than the first weekend score of the second “High&Low” picture, which finished its run with $12 million following an August debut. Including pre-opening previews, “Final Mission” has earned $3.8 million.

Holding onto the number two slot was the shocker “It.” With Warner distributing, the film earned $2.0 million to raise its cumulative total to $6.4 million. Warner added 52 screens since last weekend, of which 31 are 4DX and MX4D.

Disney’s “Thor: Ragnarok,” fell from first to third place, taking $1.2 million in its second week. The film’s cumulative total stands at $6.5 million after two weekends.
