Re: Top 20 films released in Japan in 1998

The following is a 1998 top 20 box office list I compiled for Screen
International, with figures supplied by Kogyo Tsushin. Eight Japanese films
appear in the top 20 (actually 21). In France, the domestic film industry
was able to place only three films in the top 20, in Germany, two, in
Italy, four, in the UK, three, in Australia, zero, in Brazil, one, and in
Canada, two. No figures from Asia, unfortunately.
