Detective Pikachu: Ryan Reynolds–Success Overseas

Warner and Legendary’s Detective Pikachu earned $103 million from 62 foreign markets.

Disney and Marvel’s “Avengers: Endgame” pulled in $102 million from 55 overseas territories.

“Detective Pikachu” debuted in North America with a strong $58 million for a global start of $161 million.

Outside of the States, it had the best showing in China, grossing $40.8 million, followed by the United Kingdom ($6.6 million), Germany ($5 million), and Mexico ($4.97 million).

Since launching in Japan last weekend, the live-action Pokemon movie has earned $12.9 million in that territory, bringing its worldwide haul to $170 million.

Ryan Reynolds voices the titular electric yellow sleuth in the adaptation of the 2016 video game of the same name. The Rob Letterman-directed film is expected to resonate overseas, where Pokemon has a huge following.

Avengers: Endgame has amassed a monster $1.7 billion overseas, ranking just behind “Avatar” ($2.02 billion) on international box office charts. It’s also the second-biggest movie globally of all time with $2.48 billion, again trailing behind only “Avatar” with $2.78 billion.

At the domestic box office, “Avengers: Endgame” has hit $724 million, passing “Avengers: Infinity War” ($679 million) and “Black Panther” ($700 million) to become the third-highest grossing movie ever.
