Estimated box office for the opening weekend of Detective Pikachu's film adaptation have come in at US$58m, with a further estimated international take of $103m for a total of $161 million. In the US, the estimate falls short of the third weekend of megahit Avengers: Endgame with its estimated $63m take. (Final actual figures will be provided on Monday.)
Detective Pikachu does have the highest opening for a video game adaptation in history, passing the 2016 Tomb Raider film reboot by about $10m. It is the highest opening for a Pokémon movie, passing the 1999 Pokémon: The First Movie by about $26.5m. As well, Detective Pikachu is popular with audiences according to film polling firm CinemaScore, with an A- score making it the third live action video game adaptation (after the first Mortal Kombat movie and the Dwayne Johnson-helmed Rampage) to score above a B.
The film has made back its approximately $150m US production budget, though it would need to double its current worldwide figure to be profitable after marketing.
