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

No one said dollars, coold be yen or Rubles or Pesos




For people, the avatar is waiting for you. If you think there's STILL a chance that the movie breaks 1 Billion WW at the Box Office, you'll need to show the math at how you're arriving at that conclusion. It had a 58M opening weekend.


This is the WW total for the opening weekend, and every weekend the amount a movie makes goes down a large amount.

Otherwise, say hello to your new avatar until Wednesday, June 12th. Please reply in this thread when you have put the avatar on so we can see the glorious avatar for ourselves.

The last time I underestimated that electric rat he solo’d 3 Psuedo legendaries. Granted that was in a different form of media but The Pokémon company hasn’t been booking Pikachu strong for 20 plus years to have him fail at the box office.

With that said...

I don’t care what media IP is the biggest in the world. That doesn’t have a bearing on anything and even if/though (I don’t care) Marvel is bigger it doesn’t change what the Pokémon franchise is.

This board has a big problem of I like X so it’ll cut into Detective Pikachu legs even though product X has a completely different audience then Detective Pikachu. BECAUSE ALL THE KIDS ARE TOTALLY LINING UP TO SEE JOHN WICK 3. Like Godzilla won’t terrify or even bore a younger audience.

I will stand firm in my belief that Detective Pikachu will reach a billion on legs and good word of mouth.
The captain must go down with his ship.

It was more expensive and is looking to make the same or less its opening weekend.
I know the first part but it’s Godzilla and my man Michael Dougherty is behind the camera this time around. I can it feel it in my bones that this is going to be the Godzilla movie that hits it out of the park, box office and reception wise.

Changed it. Thank you to whoever created the avatar for making it easy for phone only users to change.

I do have a serious question though.

What’s the break even and profit point for Detective Pikachu? Does anyone know?

Edit: I’m still in the Billion for train. May as well give some of you some amusement while I stand firm.
