WB's latest 'Detective Pikachu', with Ryan Reynolds voicing the title character, started off this weekend's box office with $5.7M on Thursday, and is expected to make around $50M-$55M (on a $150 million budget). 'Avengers Endgame' is still expected to top the box office, for a third week, with an estimated $80M-$85M. It's a matter of days to see if it will overcome 'Avatar' is the top grossing movie of all time.
Also out is the critically-trashed comedy 'The Hustle' starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson, which made $774,000 on Thursday, and expected to make around $12M (on a $18 Million budget).
The final major release is another critically-trashed film, this time led by Diane Keaton, 'Poms'. That made $225,000 on Thursday and is expected to bring in around $7M-$10M.
