ENDGAME box office crush continues

…the biggest movie in a generation continues its global dominance, but a creature from a more animated world is actively making cash as the spring box office slowly churns into the summer movie season.

This report from DEADLINE on the latest insider box office Friday night numbers and predictions:

Friday 12:17 PM: Legendary/Warner Bros’ Pokémon Detective Pikachu is looking to beat Avengers: Endgame on Friday, $20 million to $18 million. That said, Endgame will take the weekend with an estimated $70 million at 4,662 theaters, off 53% from a week ago, for a running total of $730.4M.

That will make the Disney/Marvel pic the third highest-grossing title of all time at the domestic box office by Sunday. By tomorrow, the Russo Brothers-directed movie will cross $700M in its 16th day of release, tying the Star Wars: The Force Awakens record.

Meanwhile, Pikachu has nothing to cry about with an estimated second-place opening of $53.6M at 4,202 theaters

Yes Avengers will continue to avenge for a while.

But other movies are coming.
