Rookies shatters Japanese box office

2 06 2009

JG Rookies filmAs was largely predicted, the film version of Rookies, based on a TBS drama, destroyed box office numbers, taking in 1.2 billion yen during its opening weekend.

Some 980,000 people saw the film that continued Rookies’ storyline about a high school teacher’s attempts to revive the school’s baseball club and help them realize their dream of going to the national tournament. The film had the biggest opening weekend this year and beat last year’s top box office earner’s weekends. Rookies is expected to out-earn both in its theatrical run.

If the film surpasses the 10 billion yen ceiling, it would be only the fourth live action movie to have done so in Japanese history.
