DETECTIVE PIKACHU Topples TOMB RAIDER To Become The Highest-Grossing Video Game Movie Of All Time

Congratulation are in order, as Pokemon Detective Pikachu has now surpassed Angelina Jolie's 2001 Tomb Raider adaptation to become the highest-grossing video game movie of all time. More past the jump...

Pokemon Detective Pikachu can now lay claim to being the highest-grossing video game adaptation of all time, along with the best-reviewed.

With a current worldwide haul of $412 million, Ryan Reynolds' diminutive detective has zapped 2001's Tomb Raider ($357M) starring Angelia Jolie out of the way to become the final boss of big-screen video game movies. Will Sonic the Hedgehog have anything to say about that next February? Unless it surprises a lot of people by being not terrible, we doubt it!

There's a sequel to Detective Pikachu in the works with Sonic writer Oren Uziel penning the script, but no release date has been set.

Tell us, do you think the first live-action Pokemon movie deserves its spot as the highest-grossing video game movie? Sound off in the comments.
