The most recent box office information we have is that Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution earned 2.7 billion yen in seven weeks which is pretty much exactly how well both Pokémon Detective Pikachu and Pocket Monsters The Movie "Everyone's Story" did over here in Japan. Movie 22 also had way tougher competition than its predecessors.Yeah, we had Detective Pikachu bring success but that had Warner Bros, Legendary, and Ryan Reynolds behind it, as well as new characters and a story never told before. I'm not too familiar with how well this movie did in Japan (perhaps Dogasu could give us an idea on how well it did compared to previous installments), but repeating whatever their success was overseas was far from a guarantee.
"The Power of One" and "The Power of Us" have almost nothing in common, what are you talking about?I'm just glad we're getting a dub of M01 that doesn't completely butcher the original intent of the first movie, just like how Everyone's Story corrected the dub's butchering of the second movie
Dang that sucks I was hoping for the movie to be in a theatrical release. It's going back to Tv since Disney XD will most likely premiere the movie to their channel.
Let's just say that the stakes were way different between the two movies. You might as well compare both to any number of movies and anime plots.Everyone helping to save the day instead of lumping it all on one "Chosen One"
