New to Theatres This Weekend: Pokemon: Detective Pikachu, The Hustle, Tolkien


With Avengers: Endgame still going strong, the Marvel juggernaut is expected to top the box office for the third weekend in a row but a lot of people will be watching with interest to see how much closer it gets to Avatar‘s all-time record. The movie does have some major competition from the Pokemon movie Detective Pikachu, which is on track for a $50 million debut but feels like it could go even higher. Also hitting theatres this weekend is the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels remake The Hustle starring Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson, which will be hoping to pull in Mother’s Day crowds. Other major releases include the J.R.R. Tolkien biopic Tolkien starring Nicholas Hoult and the geriatric cheerleader comedy Poms. In select theatres we also have the long-delayed drama The Professor and the Madman starring Mel Gibson and Sean Penn. What will you be watching this weekend?
