Hideki Takeuchi's live-action Thermae Romae film rose back up to the No. 2 spot from No. 3 in its sixth weekend. Based on Mari Yamazaki's manga, the story follows Roman architect Lucius Modestus (Hiroshi Abe), who designs bath-houses in ancient Rome. One day he's sucked into modern-day Japan. Able to travel back and forth in between worlds, Lucius uses Japanese ideas to improve the Roman baths he builds in the past. The film grossed US$2,542,478 on 304 screens for a total of US$58,006,353.
