Avengers: Endgame Wins the Weekend While Detective Pikachu Sets a Record

Avengers: Endgame

Avengers: Endgame has won the weekend box office for a third time in a row with an estimated $63.1 million. That brings the domestic total for the film to $723.5 million making it only the fourth film ever to cross $700 million. It now stands as the third highest grossing domestic release of all-time passing fellow Marvel Cinematic Film, Black Panther.

Internationally, the film added #102.3 million to bring that total to $1.762 billion. It’s the second highest grossing film internationally behind Avatar‘s $2.027 billion.

Worldwide, the film stands at $2.485 billion putting it a little over $300 million away from overtaking Avatar as the top grossing film ever. That film earned $2.788 billion. There’s a good chance the film will eventually be number one and most likely will take a month’s time, though it may be tight as the summer box office really kicks off and competition rolls out.

Detective Pikachu debuted a strong second with an estimated $58 million. That’s the largest opening weekend for a video game adaptation ever beating Lara Croft Tomb Raider‘s $47.7 million back in 2001. The film earned an “A-” CinemaScore.

Internationally, the film earned an estimated $103 million for an overseas total of $112.4 million. It opened in Japan last weekend.

In third place was The Hustle which brought in an estimated $13.5 million in its debut weekend. The film earned a “B” CinemaScore with 72% of the crowd being female and 66% under 35 years old.

The film also debuted internationally where it earned an estimated $13.7 million from 36 locations.

The Intruder dipped 39.4% from the previous weekend, a solid number, to come in fourth place. It earned $6.6 million over three days.

Rounding out the top five was Long Shot which also did well only dipping 37%. It earned an estimated $6.1 million over the three days.
