Sonic Drifts to Nearly $393 Million Globally as Sonic 2 Remains in Theaters

It’s been over two months since Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog 2 first debuted in theaters, and its shown no signs of leaving theaters, despite the movie’s debut on Paramount+ and digital services a few weeks ago. The movie has now made $392,769,000 globally, including $188,269,000 in the US, and $204.5 million in the rest of the world.

That said, Sonic 2 has certainly slowed down, making about $7.3 million globally this week. This includes $2.6 million in the US, where it has continued to sit at 7th place at the box office, and $4.7 million in the rest of the world. Sonic 2 is also being show on a little more than 2000 screens in the US, less than half the number of screens it initially debuted on. Thats still a decent number of screens, and seems to indicate theaters aren’t eager to kick out the blue blur even though the movie is now available at home, and there are multiple summer blockbusters to show. This all seems to put Sonic 2 on track to reach $400 million before ultimately leaving theaters.

On a less important note, Morbius returned to theaters in the US. It made just $300,000 this weekend. Meaning that yes, Sonic got to beat Sony’s vampire again.
