RRR Japan box office collections
Muthu’s over twenty years of power as the most famous Indian movie in Japan has come to an end.
Over the weekend, SS Rajamouli’s RRR took that place, forcing Muthu to the second position. As of Sunday, RRR has collected ¥403 million ($2.87 million), beating Muthu’s ¥400 million.
The number for Muthu has usually accepted figures; the actuals could be a little higher or lower, so it is likely that RRR may not have the record yet, but since there is little to no assurance on that, it will do.
Dropped in October, RRR had the most significant launch for an Indian movie, and it scored the most effective opening for an Indian film with ¥35 million opening weekend.
Since then, the movie has performed steadily, reaching the ¥400 million spot on Sunday. The drama is now in its eighth week and still going firm and can go on to break the ¥500 million mark.
The box office earnings of RRR in Japan are as follows:
Week 0 – ¥9.14 million
Week 1 – ¥72.21 million
Week 2 – ¥72.22 million (+0.01%)
Week 3 – ¥65.37 million (-9.48%)
Week 4 – ¥44.96 million (-31.22%)
Week 5 – ¥49.96 million (+1.11%)
Week 6 – ¥47.85 million (-4.22%)
Week 7 – ¥27.80 million approx (-41.90%)
Total – ¥403 million
Japan isn’t a regular market for Indian films as the global box office is mainly limited to diaspora fans living there, and Japan doesn’t have many of those.
SS Rajamouli has found a place with the Baahubali franchise, and now RRR has taken that to a notch more.
