DETECTIVE CONAN Has Outsold AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR In The Japanese Box Office

The anime film Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer is still hanging at the top of the Japanese box office for it's third weekend in a row, topping even Avengers: Infinity War's opening weekend.

Last weekend the highly anticipated super hero film Avengers: Infinity War opened but fans were surprised with shocking news, it had been topped on it's opening weekend by an unexpected competitor. The anime film Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer has stomped on top of the Avengers to come out on top in box office sales for it's third week in a row!

This is the 22nd Conan feature film and it sold a whopping 453,000 tickets in the weekend of April 28-29, which was 16,000 more than Avengers: Infinity War did in its opening weekend in Japan.

After breaking the franchise's opening weekend record, Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer has collected over 4.8 billion yen on 3.74 million admissions from its three-week domestic run. It has already become the third top-grossing film in the franchise after three weeks, behind the 21st film Crimson Love Letter (2017/6.87 billion yen) and the 20th film Pure Black Nightmare (2016/6.33 billion).

What is interesting is that despite having many promotional efforts to hit the Japanese audience with a super hero collaboration with the My Hero Academia characters, Walt Disney's third Avengers film Avengers: Infinity War was not able to make much impact in Japan. The latest superhero film earned a small 672 million yen from the 437,000 tickets sales on its opening weekend, which is 16.4% down from the opening weekend of Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015.
