Yeah that explains why it was big but its still crazy how it was as huge as it was. Its run was crazy, it debuted with a $7.5m weekend and its next 10 weekends were all around or higher than that, it just never dropped. Japan is more leggy than other markets but that's still bonkers.Funny that it's the exact reverse situation with games

Why 'Frozen' Was Huge in Japan | Hollywood Reporter
So basically fantastic marketing, a song that translated over well, and popular voice actors.
Speaking of Frozen, holy shame did that film do well in Japan. Like its only a smidgeon below Titanic for #2 imported film of all time. It made a total of $249m in Japan, which is by far its biggest overseas market. I wonder why it was so popular. Maybe its that kind of animated musical film they love... but Moana only made $45m there so surely it can't be that. Weird.I found this article
One factor that helped contribute to the success of Frozen was the local voice and song casting. Anna and Elsa were voiced by Sayaka Kanda and Takako Matsu, two singers and actresses whose performances received almost universal acclaim. Two postings of Matsu's Japanese version of Let It Go have more than 95 million hits on Youtube, and the song has been heard everywhere for months, while the bilingual soundtrack album has been in the top 10 since March, currently sitting at number two.
Disney's marketing in Japan originally targeted young women and girls with the somewhat unconventional dual-female lead characters and the film's musical-like qualities. Spreading from that core audience, Frozen began to attract a wide age range, getting occasional cinemagoers into theaters, and a large number of repeaters.So basically fantastic marketing, a song that translated over well, and popular voice actors.
Oh I also finally saw Solo.Its a good fun film, nothing special. Worth watching if you're a Star Wars fan, sure, but if you're not then meh.
It tried to be good and I liked some things about it but it really lacked polish imo. A lot of the elements just didn't fit together as good as they should have. Robot was great.Spoiler for Hidden:
Ah then I've seen it before!As you should!
I would switch
It was from a game show.Ah then I've seen it before!
One door has a good thing behind it, the other 2 have a bad thing behind them. The player picks a door and then the host shows one of the other doors has a bad thing behind it. Then the player can stick with the door they selected or switch to the other unopened door.
I don't think I've heard about it. Is it something you're taught in school? Maybe I know of it in a different formIt was from a game show.
