Japanese entertainment news website Cinema Today reported on Bunka Tsūshinsha’s top 10 highest-earning domestic and foreign films for 2023 on Sunday.

The domestic list consists of six anime films, two live-action films based on a manga, and one Godzilla film. The lists and earnings are current as of December 24 and are partially estimated.

The lists include total earnings even for films that opened in 2022, such as The First Slam Dunk (which opened on December 3, 2022). The film did not earn enough to rank in the top 10 last year by the time those lists came out.
