According to this tweet:
In This Corner of the World is estimated to have earned 1.58 billion yen as of today making its performance the largest multiplier of any billion+ yen earner film in the Japanese box office since 1998 (don't have any records of the prior years). Frozen's multiplier (the previous record) is at 33x whereas if this film continues its steady performance it could very well earn a 50x multiplier of 2.3+ billion yen, perhaps even higher. Who knows if 3 billion is out of reach considering the film has earned almost 500 million yen in the last two weeks alone.
>Go read the other manga by the author now!
Well, I just read it. Don't know what to feel now.
I've been hype for a year now.
Please talk about it. When was it? What was the general reaction? Was there a Q&A or something like that? How would you describe the animation?
I haven't read the manga, I'm debating wheather to read it before watching the movie or not. What do you guys recommend?
sure has been a good year for MAPPA
will they do a Western release? given the success of Kimi no Ma Wa it'd be stupid not to.
I don't know about that. If it managed to get 500 million in just two weeks, it may surpass Koe no Katachi in a couple of months. KnK is already done grossing with 2.3 billion and over 20 weeks?
Regardless of that, the screening/gross ratio is already higher than KnK, so in a way it already beat it.
Any date for the BDs?
Just so I know if I should bother to watch it in theater in Spring.
I don't know, YoI got pretty big, it leaked beyond the fujo circles. I'm sure normalfags in Japan are at least aware of the name of the studio now, kinda like how KyoAni was after Haruhi. Even now when they promote their shows or movies on TV, presenters go "Oh, the studio that made "K-On/Haruhi".
KnK is at 2.5 Bil.
Founded a new studio to create that movie.
Kono Sekai went up to 270 screens at peak. Koe got cut back to 40 screens in a week that it made 300Mil because Shochiku wanted the screens for another Live Action prod. So your comparison is only apt for starting screens. And if you're comparing that nothing dethrones Dissapperance with only a 20 screens starter.
Haruhi/Madoka levels of success. But Mappa won't get to see that much profit, while they're in the production committee, it's only at the very bottom. Avex pictures holds the rights to the merch, BDs, live events, digital distribution, and some other company holds its international rights.
They're not big enough to talk to cinema chains on their own and too small for Toho(the big one) to notice them. So it's either Shochiku or Toho home video distribution because they don't interact with Sony.
