Finishing in second is WB’s Detective Pikachu with an estimated $58 million . The adaptation of the 2016 video game of the same name, which itself was based on the popular Pokemon franchise, delivered what is now the largest opening weekend for a video game adaptation ever, topping 2001’s Lara Croft Tomb Raider ($47.7m). Not only that, opening weekend audiences liked the film to the tune of an “A-” CinemaScore, which is only the sixth time a video game adaptation has scored anything higher than a “B”. In fact, three of the previous “A-” CinemaScores went to WB’s three previous Pokemon films and the other two “A-” scores went to Mortal Kombat and Rampage .
