What You Need to Know:
- The hit movie The Boy and The Beast (Bakemono no Ko), premiered in theatres across Japan on July 11, 2015.
- Since then, the movie has surpassed most expectations, and has risen to over 5 billion yen (roughly 42 million USD) at the box office, with over 4 million people having seen the movie.
- This makes The Boy and The Beast the best-selling movie ever directed by Mamoru Hosoda, surpassing such titles as The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and Summer Wars.
With DVD and Blu-ray sales, I'm sure it'll go past even 10 billion yen!
I can't wait to see the next film from Hosoda-san!
