'Avengers: Endgame' beats out 'Pokemon: Detective Pikachu'
HOLLYWOOD – ‘Avengers: Endgame’ has retained its No. 1 position at the domestic box office for a third week in a row — although a Pokemon made the stateside battle somewhat close.

‘Endgame’s’ cumulative global box office is now $2.485 billion, with the superhero installment only second to James Cameron's all-time earner, ‘Avata’r.

Warner Bros.' Detective Pikachu still made a notable bow. The first live-action Pokemon movie earned above-average reviews. Ryan Reynolds voice stars as the titular Pikachu in the movie that sees the popular Pokemon team up with a human counterpart, Tim (Justice Smith), who has the ability to understand what Pikachu is saying. Together, they set off to solve the mystery of Tim's missing father.

Also making its box office debut this week is MGM's The Hustle, which took the No. 3 spot at the stateside box office.

Holdovers at the box office include Screen Gem's 'The Intruder', which took the No. 4 spot in its second week.
