The only new opener for the week of April 3~9, In The Cut debuted at number five on the nine-major-cities chart, with a $27,938 screen average. This is not a strong performance given Meg Ryan's star power and the hoopla in the Japanese media over her nude scenes in the film, but not unexpected at a slack time of year, just before the flood of major openings for the Golden Week holidays starting at the end of the month.

Meanwhile, the top four films -- The Return Of The King, Quill, Something's Gotta Give and Doraemon -- remain unchanged from last week, though Doraemon dropped farthest, 41.7%, as its under-twelve audience returned to school following the end of Spring Break.
