Sonic the Hedgehog 2 breaks box office records

Takes biggest opening weekend for a video game adaptation ever!

April 19, 2022

Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is set to break the opening weekend record for video game adaptations set by its 2020 predecessor, earning $26.5 million on opening day and a $72 million weekend total.

By comparison, the first Sonic opened to $58 million and grossed $319 million worldwide before the pandemic cut its theatrical run short.

Sonic 2 should blow past that mark, as families and gamers have given it glowing audience acclaim with an A on CinemaScore and 97% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes to go with a 68% critics score.
