We'll see, but I suspect that the most successful Japanese-made film
outside Japan (probably including Asia eventually) will clearly be
_Pokemon: The First Movie_ with a current gross of over $80 million in
But then one does get into sticky details: the Pokemon film was
"Americanized" with a new score and rewritten script. Does that not make
it more an "American" than a "Japanese" film? But isn't Mononoke similar
(albiet much less doctored).
