14th May 2019

After a phenomenal run at the global box office Avengers: Endgame is starting to show signs of slowing down, although it remains at the top of this weeks global box office despite a strong showing from new movie Pokémon: Detective Pikachu.

Pokemon: Detective Pikachu

Avengers: Endgame

The mighty Marvel film has had the most successful run on the global box office ever and broken every box office record along the way, this week it manges another $16 million from 56 countries on its third week of release.

This brings the films total global gross to $2.48 Billion and it is easily the second highest grossing film of all time and its 'only' $300 million behind Avatars all time record of $2.78 Billion.

Despite the slow down the film is still likely to beat Avatar and become the top grossing film of all time - next week will be a telling time to see how much the film slows when box office levels become 'normal'.

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu

The Nintendo video game franchise has been entertaining kids in cartoon form since 2000, but now, maybe inspired by Disney, the Pocket Monsters make their way to the real world in the first live action film in the franchise.

Taking $161 million for the weekend from 63 countries on its debut the film wasn't too far behind Avengers: Endgame.

The Hustle

Also new this week is this retelling/remake starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson and despite bad reviews takes $27.2 million on its global debut from 37 countries.


Two weeks in and the Nadine Labaki directed movie is at 4 taking $8.3 million from 15 countries pushing its global total to $56.3 million.

Long Shot

Despite the good reviews the Jonathan Levine directed comedy falls to 5 this week with $7.6 million from 16 countries taking it total gross $25.8 million after 2 weeks.

7th May 2019

Avengers: Endgame continues on its path of world domination, and breaking box office records this week while it stops all in its path, yet again. Long Shot is the top new film entering the chart at 2 while there are 4 other new films on the top 10.

Long Shot

Avengers: Endgame

The Marvel film remains at the top of the global box office for a second weekend and in the process becomes the fastest film to break the $2 Billion milestone.

Only 4 other films have broken this mark, Avatar, Titanic, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avengers: Infinity War, Endgame did it in 11 days!

The films weekend take is $428 million from 56 countries with a $2.2 Billion total gross, according to Gitesh Pandya from boxofficeguru.com (an excellent website) the film will pass Avatar's $2.7 Billion gross on or around May 20th on its way to a possible $3 Billion gross.

Incredibly the film is already the second highest grossing film of all time having just over taken Titanic.

Long Shot

Seth Rogan and Charlize Theron star in this romantic political comedy which is directed by Jonathan Levine.

The film lands at number 2 on its debut weekend of release with a gross of $13.3 million from 23 countries.


This dramatic true story directed by Nadine Labaki enters the global box office at number 3 this week with a gross of $13.1 million from 17 countries.

Finally on the top 5 is this animated comedy which takes $9.4 million for 9 counties on its debut weekend.
