numbers on that chart are pulled fromboxofficemojo.

It was another historic weekend forAvengers: Endgame,which pushed over the $700 million domestic mark where only 3 previous movies have ever gone (if you dont adjust for inflation)Black Panther,The Force Awakens,andAvatar.Pokemon Detective Pikachualso had a historic weekend,with the biggest gross of any video game adaptation in its first weekend.There are only 13 movies currently in wide release the rest of the mainstream offerings having lost a lot of theaters given that there were four new wide release titles this weekend.Tolkienfared the worst of all of those.

Elsewhere nothing was breaking records though theBiggest Little Farmdocumentary,which had done well at festivals,had the weekend's highest pre-screen average (on just 5 screens).Shadow,Zhang Yimou's ravishing new visual spectacle,risked a fairly big expansion in its second weekend to 47 screens but so far it's not making moviegoer waves.Go see it!

In limited releaseCharlie Says(reviewed) had a rough opening with little moviegoer interest,debuting on 38 screens but only earning $19k in total and not even making the top 15 at the arthouses.
