Japanese Box Office

posted on by Christopher Macdonald

After a week out of the top ten, Konjiki no Gash Bell: 101 Banme no Mamono has returned in the tenth spot. Pocket Monster Advance Generation: 2004 has however fallen out of the top ten movies in Japan, where it was ranked seventh at the box office last week.

Another movie entering the top ten from below this week is Hirokazu Kore-eda's Nobody Knows. A movie inspired by a real event where four unregistered children were abandoned by their mother and lived on their own in Japan for six-months. Completely ignored by their landlord and neighbors, the children were only discovered when the youngest girl accidentally died. Fourteen-year-old Yuuya Yagira won the Cannes Film Festival Award for best actor for his role as the oldest child.
