Sonic 2 Racks Up $6.2 Million in US Box Office From Early Access & Previews

The first US box office numbers are in, and they are good. Sonic 2 made $6.2 Million from Wednesday early access and Thursday preview screenings. The movie’s Thursday preview alone made $5 million, a whopping 66% increase over the original’s $3 million, though Sonic 2’s previews did start earlier. Nevertheless, according to Deadline this sets the movie up for a $50 million weekend opening, though it could go higher. For comparison, the first Sonic movie opened at $58 million over a holiday weekend, though it also beat initial expectations by a wide margin.

With Sonic 2’s overseas box office already reaching $30 million as of Wednesday, and with Sonic 2 opening in over 20 other markets this weekend, its not hard to imagine the movie earning $100 million by Monday. We’ll continue to follow Sonic 2’s box office numbers, so stay tuned!
