If you couldn't already tell, I really liked Mamoru Hosoda's latest film, The Wolf Children Ame and Yuki. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that it's my favorite movie of the year right now. Go check out our review if you haven't yet.
Looks like I'm not the only one who went to see it in theaters this past weekend. Reports are coming in that in its first two days, The Wolf Children brought in approximately 365,150,000 yen across 381 screens. In American dollars, you're looking at about $4,657,524.78. For a Japanese release, that's a damn good number and the film certainly deserves it.
Hopefully we'll see these numbers sustained in the following weeks.
