HYD tops box office for third straight week
“Hana Yori Dango Final” is still a hit at the box office. On Saturday and Sunday, while the movie’s main cast flew around the country to promote the film, it took in an additional 580 million yen to rank #1 for the third weekend in a row. In the 16 days since its release, it has earned close to 3.8 billion yen, with more than 3 million fans having seen the film.
The movie is expected to finally be ousted from the #1 spot this coming weekend, when Studio Ghibli’s “Gake no Ue no Ponyo” opens in theaters.
