9th March 2005

The final Box Office total for Secondhand Lions in Japan now stands at US$2,159,711 , the highest international box office performance of the film , as expected , in view of Haley Joel Osment's popularity in Japan , and due also in large part to the amazing effort that Nippon Herald Films , the distributor of the film in Japan , put in to their marketing of the film . Beautiful , new and classy artwork unlike anything else seen in the marketing of the film in USA and other international territories , a special appearance by none other than Haley Joel Osment himself , both live and in special personalised theatrical trailers all added to the box office success of Secondhand Lions in Japan.

No other international box office came close, with United Kingdom only achieving US$1,276,949 and Spain with US1,055,200 . salutes Nippon Herald Films and Japan on a wonderful job well done, and we applaud you for recognising Secondhand Lions for what it really is , a classy, uplifting family film that was well worth promoting . You treated the film with so much class and respect , and the box office results show that those efforts were well worth it !

Secondhand Lions finally drops out of the Top 15 Box Office Chart for Japan in its fifth frame due to a whole slew of new films opening across Japan. Although we are unable to bring you the box office takings for the 5th week, it is likely that Secondhand Lions may continue to play at smaller theatres across Japan for a few more weeks before finally ending its run. It is still showing on six screens currently, with one screen committed to showing it till 3rd September and another theatre committed to a screen run of Secondhand Lions till 10th September 2004.
