The film earned $142.1 million at the domestic box office.
The digital, Blu-ray and special-edition DVD editions of the film will include an alternate opening; a “My Pokémon Adventure” featurette; five “Creating the World of Detective Pikachu” featurettes — “Welcome to Ryme City,” “Uncovering the Magic,” “Action,” “Colorful Characters” and “Bringing Pokémon to Life”; a “Ryan Reynolds: Outside the Actor’s Studio” featurette; Mr. Mime’s audio commentary; and a “Carry On” music video by Rita Ora and Kygo.
The Blu-ray edition will feature a “Detective Mode” to allow viewers to uncover hidden clues, behind-the-scenes footage, pop-up trivia, Pokémon facts, featurettes, Easter eggs and more as they watch the film.
The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc of the film will feature HDR and a Dolby Atmos soundtrack.
For a limited time, disc versions of the film will include a special “Pokémon” game card.
