>Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends drops a hefty 54% in its second weekend after delivering the biggest opening weekend of the year, taking in ¥418,846,200 ($3.9 million) on 320,949 admissions. The drop is alarming, but after an abnormal large opening weekend over a 3-dau holiday weekend, perhaps it's not too unexpected. After 9-days in release, the film has exceeded ¥2.2 billion ($20 million) and 1.76 million admissions, tracking 15% ahead of the last film right now.
>Dawn of the Planet of the Apes... almost bombed honestly. It only earned ¥210,925,300 ($2.0 million) on 149,354 screens on 712 screens. This is down almost 50% from the opening weekend of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Dawn had previews last weekend which deflated the opening weekend, but this is still a huge drop. It'll probably earn only make ¥1.5 billion ($14 million) or a little more.
>Revenge of the Pomegranate Tree Hill had an okay debut, grossing ¥100,389,900 ($0.94 million) on 86,646 admissions on 255 screens. It actually ranked 4th for the weekend in admissions, but its low avg. ticket price brings it down to 6th in gross.
