“Sonic The Hedgehog” has gone from receiving extremely unfavorable reactions from fans to earning the biggest box office opening weekend ever for a video game movie. Sonic had no problem topping the box office, speeding past Birds of Prey with a $57 million three-day weekend, and a projected $68 million for the Valentine’s Day/Presidents Day holiday weekend.
The Hollywood Reporter has the Sonic the Hedgehog box office not only topping the domestic charts, but raking in a solid $100 million internationally. On top of that, the movie has been landing well with fans, earning an “A” CinemaScore from opening day audiences and a 95% score from audiences on Rotten Tomatoes, even though it only landed 63% from critics. It’ll be interesting to see if the movie keeps us all talking throughout the upcoming spring. Sonic the Hedgehog in theaters now!
