After it was reported by many news outlets that Pokemon: Detective Pikachu made $58 million at the box office its opening weekend, it’s now being said that the figure was not correct.
According to Exhibitor Relations, the updated number for the film is $54.5 million not $58 million as previously stated.
Despite the misinformation, the film still came in second at the weekend box office behind Avengers: Endgame at $63 million.
Also, on Friday, Detective Pikachu earned $20.7 million while Endgame made $16.060. This was the first day since the Marvel film debuted that it wasn’t the highest-grossing film in theaters.
Detective Pikachu had a big debut at the box office but The Pokémon Company was not a big fan of one scene in particular that took place during the film.
Erik Nordby, the visual effects supervisor, and Ravi Bansal, the film’s art director revealed how they made that creepy, gross scene with Lickitung work.
“We built that tongue in reality with a big chunk of latex,” Nordby explains. “It’s completely gross, but we had to have something to wipe Justice Smith’s face with [the actor gets licked by Lickitung in one scene].”
He also goes on to share that the Lickitung scene was not one the company was too fond of.
“For something to feel real, it has to have real world grit and texture. But the Pokémon Company would see that and think it was dirty. We had to walk them through a whole series of slides and build the trust that we weren’t going to make these things disturbingly dirty.
I wouldn’t say that [the scene with Lickitung] was the Pokémon Company’s favorite scene in the movie. That’s one where we got right up to the edge of what they would be comfortable with.”
You can catch a quick glimpse of the scene in the film’s trailer, below.
