Director Michihito Fujii‘s latest opus The Last Ten Years reached Japanese theaters just a couple of months ago on March 4, yet it will be released on DVD and Bluray on July 22 and available on digital format as soon as June 24 ! Usually, it takes about 6 months (sometimes more) for films to be released on physical disc formats but surely Warner Japan wants to build on the momentum of the movie’s remarkable success.
Box Office Hit: Yomei10nen/The Last Ten years entered the charts at #1, topped the box office for three weeks in a row and remained in the top ten until it stopped being screened on a nationwide basis, bar a few selected theaters and some special events, on May 12. With a gross revenue of nearly 3 billion yens (about 23.5 million USD), it has become the number 1 live action film in 2022.
