Worldwide business Of Suzume
Globally, Suzume crossed the $200 million milestone and has now grossed $221.1 million in total.
Now the sixth-highest-grossing Japanese animated feature of all time, Suzume will almost certainly pass Howl’s Moving Castel ($236.3 million) for fifth place this week and looks prime to overcome One Piece Film Red($246.6 million) for fourth. Breaking into the top three presents a steeper challenge, however, as Shinkai’s own blockbuster Your Name currently holds the spot with a staggering $382.2 million global tally.
Suzume releases in many American and European markets on April 13 and 14. It’s an interesting choice of release date given that Illumination’s The Super Mario Bros. Movie will be in its second week in theaters at the time. The two films may not target exactly the same audience, but there is surely a significant overlap between the two fanbases. One can’t help but wonder why, with no major studio animation releases in the west since Puss in Boots: The Last Wish in December of last year, Suzumedistributor Crunchyroll didn’t take advantage of the lack of competition in Q1 of 2023.
Suzume Disappoints In USA And Biggest Hit In China And Korea
Makoto’s latest film, Suzume, had a highly anticipated opening weekend in the United States, with Sony projecting it to earn a whopping $5 million. However, the film fell short of this expectation, earning only $2.15 million on Friday and a total of $5 million over the weekend, ranking seventh in the box office charts.
Shinkai’s previous hit, Weathering With You, earned over $5 million in its first six days of release in January 2020, making the underperformance of Suzume an unexpected setback. With a massive fan base worldwide, Shinkai’s latest film was expected to do even better. Its release was highly anticipated in 199 countries and territories, with Crunchyroll handling North American distribution and Sony Pictures Entertainment and Crunchyroll handling distribution in other regions.
However, it is not all doom and gloom for the film’s team, as Suzume has been ranked number one on its opening day in many countries, and is currently the highest-selling Japanese anime in China of all time.No Japanese film has sold more tickets in South Korea than Suzume.
