Pokemon Movie Opens Strong

Thursday, November 11, 1999 in News & Info, Anime News. Leave a comment

The 1st Pokémon Movie debuted in theaters across the America yesterday, final figures for opening day are forthcoming but the film the is expected to carry a very strong return at the boxoffice. Receipts from 2,901 screens where Pokémon is showing were still being counted at the end of business last night, select matinee figures point to one of the best post-Labor Day single-day debuts for an animated picture. Warner Bros. studio executives, however, were reluctant to give an estimate for the day's tally. Per theater estimates show returns as high as $15,000 for screens around major cities. Warner Brothers is giving away one Pokémon trading card with each movie ticket, this prompted bulk buying of up to 1,000 tickets at a time. The Pokémon Movie's distribution will widen out to 3,043 screens on Friday.
