Pokemon Detective Pikachu is biggest video game movie launch

The reign of Earth's Mightiest Heroes has fallen, at least at the global box office. However, Force Awakens mustered $90 million in its third weekend and was at $742 million at this point in its run, on its way to $936 million, a number that is likely out of reach in the North America for Endgame given the heavy summer competition (The Force Awakens took advantage of relatively weaker January competition).

Pokemon Detective Pikachu debuted to $58 million in its opening weekend at the domestic box office. Detective Pikachu's total includes US$40.8 million in China, US$6.6 million in the United Kingdom, US$5 million in Germany, and US$4.97 million in Mexico.

Ryan Reynolds voices the titular electric yellow sleuth in the adaptation of the 2016 video game of the same name. The Rob Letterman-directed film is expected to resonate overseas, where Pokemon has a huge following.

Of course, ticket sales for "Avengers: Endgame" are no slouch. In total, "Endgame" has made $724 million domestically and $1.762 billion internationally, bringing its worldwide box office total to $2.486 billion.

"Avengers: Endgame" has topped the box office again in its third weekend in theaters.
