The third Yo-kai Watch movie, known as Eiga Yo-kai Watch: Sora Tobu Kujira to Double no Sekai no Daib?ken da Nyan! (Yo-kai Watch The Movie: The Flying Whale and the Grand Adventure of the Double Worlds, Meow!), premiered in Japan this past weekend. It managed to top the Japanese box office, beating out Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – which also opened a day earlier. We should note however that Yo-kai Watch’s box office earnings for the Saturday – Sunday time period did not overcome Star Wars.
The new Yo-kai Watch film sold 545,211 tickets for 608,033,100 yen (roughly $5.189 million) on 415 screens on Saturday and Sunday. That amount encompasses 57.5 percent of the opening weekend box office for the previous Yo-kai Watch movie, which went on to earn 5.53 billion yen (roughly $47 million).
