Japan Box Office: ‘Jurassic World’ ahead of ‘Ted 2’ and Earns $60M
The foul-mouthed teddy bear trailed behind the now famous dinosaurs as the latter were the biggest grosser over the last weekend.
Last weekend has been pretty good for Jurassic World in Japan Box Office as the movie earned $3.9 million and was ahead of Ted 2 with its earnings of $3.6 million according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter.
Its earnings ensured its top rank for the consecutive fourth weekend.
However, Ted 2 actually managed to sell 308,000 tickets compared to 301,000 tickets sold by Jurassic World. This made Ted 2 the number one movie on the local charts that do not use box office takings but admissions for rankings.
One of the major reasons for the unprecedented high earnings of Jurassic World is that tickets are costlier in IMAX screens and for its 3D versions as reported by Variety. These factors have helped the movie to consolidate its total business at the Japan box office as the number of tickets sold moved up from 4.75 million to $58.5 million.
Ted 2, on the other hand managed to get $4.72 million in its kitty from its 406,255 tickets in Japan. This was about 40 percent more in terms of Japan’s local currency than the movie’s predecessor’s three day opening figures in the year 2013.
The prequel to Ted 2 went on to become the biggest grosser in the live-action genre in Japan in the year 2013.
Jurassic World was released in more than 60 nations world-wide and got positive reviews from various film critics and was praised for its excellent music score and amazing visuals.
Without doing any adjustment to the inflation rate, the movie has the distinction of being one of the highest-grosser movies of all time in North America as well as in the world.
Jurassic World is the highest-grossing movie of 2015 till now.
