• After 7 weeks at #1, latest Detective Conan film finally dethroned… by Deadpool 2

    For seven straight weeks since its premiere, Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer dominated the Japanese weekend box office. It was so dominating that it stayed at the top of the rankings at #1 for seven straight weeks. However, for its 8th week, one particular superhero film managed to finally dethrone Conan. And that film is none other than Deadpool 2!

    Fox’s Deadpool 2 earned 375 million yen on 239,000 admissions last weekend, thereby taking first place. Here are the Japanese weekend Box office rankings from 2-3 June 2018 based on weekend ticket sales:

    1 (new). “Deadpool 2”

    2 (new). “50 First Dates”

    3 (1). “Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer”

    4 (2). “Tsuma yo Bara no youni: Kaziku wa Tsuraiyo III”

    5 (3). “Peter Rabbit”

    6 (new). “OVER DRIVE”

    7 (4). “Koi wa Ameagari no Youni”

    8 (12). “Saraba Seishun, Saredo Seishun.”

    9 (5). “Yu-zai”

    10 (7). “Nomitori Zamurai”

    Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer was so dominating at its 7-week run at the top that this year’s biggest worldwide box office hit, Avengers: Infinity War, never topped the Japanese chart. However, everything changed when Thanos’s own arch nemesis in the comics, Deadpool, arrived. The Japanese dubbed version of Deadpool 2 finally took over the #1 spot, breaking the 4th Wall in the process. And yes, Deadpool has one-upped Thanos… AGAIN. Just Deadpool being Deadpool I guess.
