Last month, Sonic the Hedgehog finally debuted in cinemas worldwide. With the movie well past its highly-ridiculed first trailer, here’s an updated look at its earnings so far!
As of today, the movie has pulled in just over $301 million worldwide. This does pale in comparison to Detective Pikachu’s $433 million earnings from last year, but one should note that Sonic the Hedgehog was indefinitely delayed in China and Japan due to the coronavirus outbreak – so the comparison isn’t exactly fair per se.
Domestically in the US, the film hit $143.2 million in gross earnings – which is just right behind Detective Pikachu’s $144.1 million. In other words, Sonic the Hedgehog is less than $1 million from becoming the highest-grossing videogame movie in the US!
We’ll report back as we hear more in the future. Stay tuned!
