K-ON! Film Earns 1.9 Billion Yen at Box Office
posted on by Egan Loo
The K-ON film has earned over 1.9 billion yen (about US$23.7 million) at the box office. The film opened in 137 theaters on December 3, and it continues to play in some theaters, including two in Tokyo. To celebrate the recently announced Blu-ray Disc/DVD release, the film will return to Tokyo's Shinjuku Piccadilly theater starting on May 12. The film's theatrical pamphlet became the highest selling pamphlet in that theater's history.
Update: In related news, the online "TBSishop" offered sushi restaurant happi coats, which play key roles in the film, to celebrate the Blu-ray/DVD release, but they sold out within a day. [Via Yaraon!]
