Godzilla vs. Kong at #2, Honey Lemon Soda live-action film opens at #4
The live-action film of Ken Wakui‘s Tokyo Revengers manga earned 696,434,440 yen (about US$6.31 million) in its first three days to top the Japanese box office in its opening weekend. The film has sold more than 500,000 tickets.
The film was slated to open in Japan last October, but was delayed to 2021 due to the effects of the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Japan. The production halted filming in April 2020 due to COVID-19. The film opened on July 9. Tsutomu Hanabusa (live-action Kakegurui, Miseinen dakedo Kodomo ja Nai) directed the film. Rock band SUPER BEAVER performed the film’s theme song “Namae o Yobu yo” (I’ll Call Your Name).
