This is not the films first week of release globally but the first it grossed enough to chart.

The only 2 films in its way to being the top US film ever are Avatar and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Avatar it could do by next weekend but The Force Awakens could be a hard reach.

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu

Highest new film of the week is the live action version of the popular Nintendo franchise which lands at number 2 with $58 million.

With a solid fan base and favourable reviews the Rob Letterman directed film could go on to be the top grossing Pokémon film to hit the big screen.

The drop from last week record breaking openieng was significant but similar to other films on its genre and the films posted the second highest second weekend gross after Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

THe film has a fight on its hands to beat the Star Wars movie but its possible, it will definitely become at least the second highest grossing film in the US ever.

The Intruder

Captain Marvel

The Avengers studio mate falls from 2 to number 5 this week in the aftermath of Endgames record breaking weekend which saw a boost in this films takings.
