Newcomers couldn't end Frozen's reign over the Japan box office as the animated film continues to set new records in its 10th weekend in cinemas.
The Disney film made ¥742 million (US$7.27 million) on Saturday and Sunday. The animated adventure has made ¥17.2 billion (US$168 million), making it the eighth highest grossing film in Japanese history. It is expected to surpass both Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002) and Bayside Shakedown 2 踊る大捜査線 ＴＨＥ ＭＯＶＩＥ２ レインボーブリッジを封鎖せよ！ (2003) this week.
Also remaining strong is time travel comedy Thermae Romae II テルマエ・ロマエ パートII, which held on to second place for the second consecutive weekend with ¥258 million (US$2.53 million). After three weekends in cinemas, the TAKEUCHI Hideki 武内英樹 film has made ¥3.01 billion (US$29.5 million).
The top new film this week is Wood Job! ＷＯＯＤ ＪＯＢ！ ～神去なあなあ日常～ (pictured), the latest film from Waterboys director YAGUCHI Shinobu 矢口史靖. On 310 screens, the comedy made ¥107 million (US$1.05 million) from 81,900 admissions.
In 2012, Yaguchi's Robo-G ロボジー (2011) opened with ¥202 million (US$1.98 million) from 278 screens for a total of ¥1.16 billion (US$11.4 million) during its theatrical run.
In May 2012, Midnight in Paris (2011) made ¥27.1 million (US$266,000) from 46 screens on its opening weekend.
