Mizushima's gotta get that money for Shirobako Season 2 somehow.

The studio making this does not see even a penny of this money. All of it is going to production committee.

The studio actually lost money in progress of making this.

Madoka 3 is likely to fall to GaruPan Movie by this coming weekend if the partial attendees data vs actual attendees data are in similar ratios for week 28 (May 23~27) and weekend 27 (May 21~22).

41,000 / 27,942 = 1.467
¥80,361,200 / 41,000 = ¥1,960

Partial data attendees / Actual attendees / Gross / Total Gross
27,942 41,000 ¥80,361,200 ¥2,021,490,984 → Weekend 27 (May 21~22)
*4,332 *6,346 ¥12,438,160 ¥2,033,929,144 → May 23 (Prediction)
*3,118 *4,574 ¥*8,965,040 ¥2,042,894,184 → May 24 (Prediction)
*3,558 *5,220 ¥10,231,200 ¥2,053,125,384 → May 25 (Prediction)

Good news, really hoping the franchise will get another season in the future too.

Here is the list for late-night Anime Movies, and the comparison graph of Box Office gross vs days at the Box Office for the Top 4 in the spoiler tag.

Some numbers...
¥1,912,179,484 as of April 24 (156 days)
¥2,021,490,984 as of May 22 (184 days)

¥*,*80,361,200 over May 21~22 (day 183 and day 184: http://www.cinematoday.jp/page/N0082947)

¥1,941,129,784 as of May 20 (182 days, ¥2,021,490,984 - ¥*,*80,361,200)

¥*,*28,950,300 from April 25 to May 20 (day 157 to day 182, ¥1,941,129,784 - ¥1,912,179,484)

The boost from the film strip on Saturday and the increased 4DX screenings over weekend #27 was indeed massive considering how little it grossed over the 4 weeks prior to this weekend. GaruPan Movie still has to be at the Box Office for 19 days to surpass the 202 days at the Box Office Love Live had, and this is with the 4DX screenings starting from end of February for GaruPan Movie. Just makes me wonder how much Love Live would've grossed if it had 4DX screenings too...

I'm a big fan of both Love Live and GaruPan, so i'm very happy to see both having done so well, and have lasted so long at the Box Office, which is quite rare for even mainstream movies in Japan. Here's hoping another favourite of mine (KanColle) does similarly as well at the Box Office!

2 billion yen, half a year in theaters, making the top 10 this far into its showings.

But still no US theater showings. FFS >_<

Hopefully this gets subbed super duper fast when BD comes out, been waiting for so long for more tank action.

High School Fleet should get a movie too! My life would be complete.

May 23, 2016 1:07 PM by HecticLeo

I must add that the ridiculuously long tail was caused by the screening of 4DX some time after the normal screenings started, which made the film to basically possesed two release windows.

I also really want to try it, but too bad it's in Japan.

May 23, 2016 11:34 AM by zeroyuki92

whoa that is awesome. can't wait to watch it myself :>

May 23, 2016 11:20 AM by silverwalls
