I really like it Miracle of Boys Who Don’t Give Up Slam Dunk
The movie ‘The First Slam Dunk’ has started a new record countdown. It’s a victory for the “slam dunks.”
“The First Slam Dunk” is based on the cartoon “Slam Dunk” serialized by Takehiko Inoue from 1990 to 1996, and has been on the rise since it debuted in domestic theaters on January 4.
As of the 26th, the number of audiences mobilized by “The First Slam Dunk” was 3.57 million. This is the second-highest record in Japanese animation history, and it challenged the throne by closely tracking “Your Name,” which is topping the list.
It is said that it is only a matter of time before winning the first place, beating “Your Name” as it maintained 40,000 viewers on weekdays and more than 100,000 viewers on weekends despite the long-term screening for eight weeks.
In the wake of the momentum, it has been listed as one of the top 10 animated films released in Korea, going beyond Japanese animation.
What has now emerged as a concern is whether “The First Slam Dunk” “pierce” the wall of 4 million people, which was considered a record of evil. Unlike the release of “Memories of the 20th Century,” “The First Slam Dunk” has long-run conditions by absorbing audiences of various generations, including 1020, beyond the original’s main readership of 3040.
This is the potential to beat not only domestic masterpieces such as Ghost and Negotiation, but also James Cameron’s John Press, represented by “Avatar 2” and “Titanic,” and Marvel’s new film “Antman and Wasp: Quintam Mania” during the last eight-week screening.
In March, “Foreign Rain” and “Shazam”! Expectations such as “The Wrath of the Gods” will be released one after another, but “The First Slam Dunk” is expected to continue its run without giving up as it has confirmed the release of IMAX in April and resumed screening of special theaters.
