JAPAN

The biggest battle of the Japanese holiday season is between The Last Samurai and Finding Nemo - and so far it's hard to call a winner. The opening round went to Finding Nemo, which set a new record for opening weekend box office with Y1,116,203,900 ($10,431,812) on 900,447 admissions and 720 screens. This compared with The Last Samurai's Y902,354,300 ($8,433,218) on 622,237 admissions and 550 screens.
