POKÉMON Detective Pikachu has officially become the highest-grossing video game movie of all time. Read on below for more details:
“Theaters in five remaining territories still showing Pokémon Detective Pikachu propelled the adventure movie past US$436m worldwide, a new record for films based on video games. Pokémon Detective Pikachu is now the most commercially successful movie to be based on a video game, after weekend takings pushed it into top spot. Cinemas in Norway, New Zealand, Slovenia, Portugal and Colombia generated US$6,994 over the weekend of July 12-14, per data published by Amazon’s Box Office Mojo.
“By adding that to tallies of US$143.3m (domestic, as of July 14) and US$286m (foreign, as of July 7), at US$436m “Pokémon Detective Pikachu” overtakes Warcraft in terms of both critical response and box office revenue. Pokémon Detective Pikachu was already the best-received video game adaptation, usurping Dwayne Johnson monster movie Rampage and Alicia Vikander’s Tomb Raider, according to Rotten Tomatoes’ aggregated review score ranking.”
