Suzume, Detective Conan, Kingdom 2, Shin Ultraman make top 10

Japanese film website Eiga.com reported on Bunka Tsūshinsha's top 10 highest-earning domestic and foreign films for 2022 on Friday. The lists and earnings are current as of December 25.

The lists include total earnings even for films that opened in 2021, such as Jujutsu Kaisen 0, which opened on December 24, 2021. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 did not earn enough to rank in the top 10 last year by the time those lists came out.

The domestic Japanese list consists of four anime, one live-action film based on a manga, and one tokusatsu film. The four anime films earned a combined total of 52.36 billion yen (about US$395.0 million). That is an 88.1% increase over the earnings of the four anime films that made the top 10 last year.
