Weathering With You Beats E.T. and Armageddon in Box Office

weathering with you

Last time we checked in with Makoto Shinkai’s colossally successful anime film Weathering With You, it had managed to surpass 1993’s Jurassic Park on the list of the top-grossing films of all time in Japan. Now you can add two more movies to the list, because Weathering With You managed to leap past 1982’s E.T. and 1998’s Armageddon to become the country’s 13th top-grossing film.

To reach that lofty position, Weathering With You had to pull in a staggering 13.51 billion yen over the course of its now 12-week run. That puts it right behind its next conquest, 2003’s The Last Samurai, which sits at 13.7 billion yen.
