The latest Precure anime film, Eiga Suite Precure: Torimodose! Kokoro ga Tsunagu Kiseki no Melody, slipped from No. 4 to No. 5 in its third weekend on Kogyo Tsushinsha's chart, but dropped to No. 6 on Box Office Mojo's chart. It took in US$1,149,345 on 168 screens for a gross-to-date of US$7,764,337.

The live-action film sequel to the manga-based television series Moteki fell from No. 9 off Kogyo Tsushinsha's chart, and dropped to No. 10 on Box Office Mojo's chart. In its eighth weekend, it earned US$292,332 on 273 screens for a new total of US$26,816,906.
