Wow, Avengers Endgame ($63 million domestic + $102 million abroad) vs. Detective Pikachu ($58 million domestic + $103 million abroad)

That's a lot closer than expected

Me too. I know there are some fans out there, but no way did I predict Pikachu would give Avengers a run for its money. Mind you, this was the release of the former movie, while the latter had been out for two weeks already, so it's not like they're comparing opening weekend sales.

Haven't seen Pikachu movie yet but found the trailer warm and funny. The casting of Ryan Reynolds was pure genius!

The big news is that Avengers : End Game was not the top film in Japan, lost out ot Detective Conan anime film. Japan was the only major film market where the Avenger : End Game was not the top grossing film.

You're being facetious, right? "End Game" has been in theaters for three weeks now and earned nearly $100 million in North America on the opening weekend or nearly twice what "Pikachu" grossed in its opening weekend.
