Briefly: Traditional tokusatsu is back on top for the first time in over a decade. Director Shinji Higuchi's Attack on Titan took out Dreamwork's Minions for the top spot at Japan's box office earning an estimated 603 million yen over Saturday and Sunday. (Roughly, $4.9 million-- Admirable by Japanese box office standards.)

Details on box office totals for Attack on Titan are scarce due to the lack of coverage over Japan's box office. We'll keep a vigilant eye as the movie continues its run. FUNimation, Attack on Titan's North American distributor, is likely excited about the early results. It's uncertain if this will affect how they decide to release the film in North American theaters, (Wide? Limited?) but it's certainly something that fans of both the franchise and traditional Japanese special effects can celebrate over.

The film's sequel, Attack on Titan: End of the World opens September 9th of this year. Both films are directed by Shinji Higuchi. The television miniseries Attack on Titan: Beacon for Counterattack will air on Japanese television, August 15th.
