    I think so too. Most of its success was more due to being the first 3Dmovie inside the big cinemas rather than because of the story itself. I would be surprised if number two grosses way more than a billion in total.

    Personally I think it will too 1 billion. It was a massive massive success, if the second has a good campaign, it won't struggle a bit.

    'Detective Pikachu' Delivers Record Opening for a Video Game Adaptation as 'Endgame' Tops $700M

    Disney's Avengers: Endgame dipped a little more than expected for the three-day, but it was still able to capture the weekend's top spot, holding off a record start for a video game adaptation from WB's Pokemon: Detective Pikachu. Meanwhile, UA Releasing's The Hustle lived up to expectations, but STX and eOne's Poms and Disney's release of the Fox Searchlight drama Tolkien both struggled in their debuts over this Mother's Day weekend.

    With an estimated $63 million, Avengers: Endgame topped the weekend box office for the third straight weekend in a row for a domestic cume that now stands at $723.5 million. Endgame is only the third film ever to top $700 million domestically as it topped Black Panther to become the third highest grossing domestic release of all-time.

    Internationally, Endgame added another $102.3 million for an international cume that now stands at $1.76 billion and a global tally reaching $2.485 billion. The film remains the second highest grossing international and worldwide release ever, trailing Avatar both categories, though by just $302 million worldwide and $265 million internationally in what could end up a very tight race.

    Finishing in second is WB's Detective Pikachu with an estimated $58 million. The adaptation of the 2016 video game of the same name, which itself was based on the popular Pokemon franchise, delivered what is now the largest opening weekend for a video game adaptation ever, topping 2001's Lara Croft Tomb Raider ($47.7m). Not only that, opening weekend audiences liked the film to the tune of an "A-" CinemaScore, which is only the sixth time a video game adaptation has scored anything higher than a "B". In fact, three of the previous "A-" CinemaScores went to WB's three previous Pokemon films and the other two "A-" scores went to Mortal Kombat and Rampage.

    Looking ahead, should Detective Pikachu follow in the footsteps of previous video game adaptations, we're probably looking at a domestic run anywhere from $145-165 million. Outside that range on the high end, films such as Hitman, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life and Prince of Persia delivered 3x multiples, which would mean a domestic run closer to $175 million, but a performance closer to the likes of Rampage and The Angry Birds Movie seems a little more reasonable at this point, which would suggest a domestic run topping $160 million. However you look at it, we're talking about a film that will soon become the highest grossing video game adaptation of all-time domestically as it has already entered the top ten after just three days in release.

    Internationally, Detective Pikachu delivered an estimated $103 million this weekend for a running overseas cume that now totals $112.4 million after opening in Japan last weekend where it has brought in nearly $13 million so far. The film's international performance is led by this weekend's opening in China where it has already brought in nearly $41 million. Additional openings include UK ($6.6m), Germany ($5.0m), Mexico ($4.97m), France ($4.8m), Australia ($3.5m), Korea ($3.2m), Italy ($2.8m), Spain ($2.2m), Indonesia ($2.14m) and Taiwan ($2.06m). The next major market release is Russia where the film will open on May 16.

    UA Releasing's The Hustle finished in third with an estimated $13.5 million, which is just ahead of expectations for the comedy remake starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson. Opening day audiences gave the film a "B" CinemaScore while 72% of the crowd was female and 66% were under 35 years old.

    Internationally, the film debuted in 36 locations with an estimated $13.7 million led by a $2.4 million opening in Russia. Additional openings include Germany ($1.8m), Australia ($1.8m) and the UK ($1.5m). Looking ahead, the film will open in Mexico on June 28 followed by July openings in France and Brazil.

    Sony's The Intruder held on better than expected for a fourth place finish after dipping just -39% in its second weekend for a $6.6 million three-day. The film's domestic total now tops $21 million after ten days in release.

    Rounding out the top five is Lionsgate's Long Shot, which also held on better than expected with an estimated $6.1 million three-day, dropping -37% in its second weekend. The romantic comedy has now grossed just shy of $20 million domestically.

    Falling outside the top five is eOne and STXfilms's Poms, which debuted in 2,750 locations and could only manage an estimated $5.1 million. This is the second disappointment in as many weeks for STX, which saw their animated feature UglyDolls disappoint last weekend. Poms received a "B+" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and saw females make up 75% of the opening weekend crowd while 85% of the weekend audience was aged 25 or older.

    Landing just inside the top ten is Disney's release of Tolkien, which was previously scheduled for a limited release this weekend rather than a wide, and, unfortunately it was unable to live up to its theater count. The film debuted in 1,495 locations and could only manage an estimated $2.15 million. This includes both $240k from Thursday's previews as well as grosses from Tuesday's Fathom event. Overall the film's per theater average is a disappointing $1,419.

    Next weekend sees the release of the hotly anticipated John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum in 3,600+ locations along with Universal's A Dog's Journey in 3,200 theaters and WB's The Sun is Also a Star in over 2,100 theaters.

    I'd give it 2 weeks until Avengers is the #1 movie of all time.

    Not sure over the next two weeks it might make $100 million in total, which would still leave it over $60 million behind Avatar.
    Why reach for the Moon when we have the Stars.

    Avengers: Endgame has vaulted over Avatar to become the second highest grossing film of all time at the North American box office on an estimated $770.8m

    The Marvel Cinematic Universe tentpole added an estimated $29.4m through Buena Vista in 4,220 theatres in its fourth weekend, overtaking 2009 release Avatar’s $760.5m final tally.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens remains the all-time champion on $936.7m, a seemingly unassailable record, for the foreseeable future at least, established in 2016.

    Avengers: Endgame ranks as the second highest international release on $1.844bn behind Avatar on $2.027bn, and the second highest global release on $2.615bn behind Avatar on $2.787bn.

    John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum starring Keanu Reeves and Halle Berry opened top at the North American box office, grossing an estimated franchise-best $57m in 3,850 venues through Lionsgate-Summit.
