Detective Pikachu will not gross more than 1B worldwide. Who will make an avatar bet about that?

Edit: Please put FOR or AGAINST in all capitals in your post when placing your bet.

Detective Pikachu is being praised as the movie that finally kills the video game movie curse.



The trailer has over 110M combined views on Youtube. Lots of people here are betting this movie will gross 1B worldwide.


Y'all are wrong.

So, who is ready to put their money where their mouth is? Who thinks Detective Pikachu is going to make 1B worldwide?
If, by the end of its box office run, Detective Pikachu has grossed less than 1B worldwide, those who bet AGAINST 1B WW get to chose the collective avatar of the other side.
If, by the end of its box office run, Detective Pikachu has grossed 1B+ worldwide, those who bet FOR 1B WW get to chose the collective avatar of the other side.
Avatars will last for one month.

So what say you, ResetEra?

I specifically avoided posting in the Endgame avatar bet thread to put my name in the Detective Pikachu one. So sign me up on the over billion train. FOR.

(I also had it over Toy Story 4 as well, am I a mad man? Well, I am high 60's low 70's, so take that for what you will.)

This thing is tracking to open around $50-$60 million domestically. Absolutely no chance it hits 1 billion. Trailer views aren't indicative of box office success.
