Gokusen: The Movie’s opening weekend

leave a comment »

The highly anticipated Gokusen: The Movie opened on Japanese screens last weekend, starting on 11th July. It was reported that more than 402 thousand fans saw the film, and that earned the movie approximately 490 million yen.

The movie casted some of my favourite actors from Gokusen 1 and 2, namely Oguri Shun from the first instalment and Mokomichi Hayami and Koike Teppei from the second. guess this is one of the last times that viewers can catch Yankumi in action, i seriously doubt there’s more coming with 3 instalments done.

However there’s comparison to the “ROOKIES” movie which opened in Japan a few weeks ago, with regards to gross earnings. ROOKIES had earned a whopping 1.2 billion yen in its opening weekend. And perhaps people are questioning whether Gokusen: The Movie can reach its targeted earnings of about 4 billion yen by the end of its run.

Gokusen fans! catch it now =o (if you are reading from Japan)
