Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is the highest-grossing video game adaptation of all time
Sega Corporation today confirmed that Paramount Pictures’ film Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has now officially recorded a worldwide box office of $331.64 million, surpassing the $319.71 million sales record set by the original 2020 film.
This makes Blue Blur’s second big-screen release the “highest-grossing” video game adaptation of all time. This follows from the fact that the film is experiencing the biggest success of any video game film ever, with $72.1 million in the US in its first three days. The original made $58.01 million in the same time period.
In the US alone, it was also ranked as the highest-grossing video game film of all time, surpassing the previous film at $148.97 million and grossing $162.74 million at the box office. Outside of that location, Sonic 2 debuted in 47 markets as the #1 movie.
It hasn’t been done yet – the film is due for release in Japan this August. Have you already been to the cinema to watch Sonic the Hedgehog 2? Leave a comment below.
