A few weeks ago the Sonic movie had reached $200 million at the box office, a pretty big achievement, making this one of the most successful video game movies of all time. Now Sonic the Hedgehog has impressed everyone once again, an analysis has been made until March 12, shared by Cinemablend, which affirms that the film has reached $143.2 million dollars in the United States, thus becoming the second most popular video game film after Detective Pikachu, which managed to reach $144.1 million.
Considering these figures, the difference between the two named films is only $900,000, so quite possibly Sonic the Hedgehog will take the throne in the United States in no time and will become a resounding success for Paramount. On the other hand, we must take into account the figures worldwide, where Sonic has obtained a total of $301 million, while Detective Pikachu $433 million.
In this case, the film would be a bit far from breaking the world record for best video game film, since there is a lot of difference, although it could surpass Angry Birds, which reached $352 million dollars, thus remaining, such once, as the second most successful video game movie of all time.
