Sonic Blasts to the Top of the Box Office for 2nd Week, Grosses Over $200 Mil Worldwide

Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog just keeps rushing past the competition, scoring the top box office spot worldwide for a second week in a row. Paramount recently reported that Sonic made another $26 million this weekend, which helped the movie steal the top box office spot away from its closest competition, Fox’s Call of the Wild. This brings the total US gross to $106.6 million.

Sonic has also continued to do well overseas, where it earned another $38.3 million, bringing it’s total international gross to $96.5 million. This came as Sonic opened in an additional 16 markets, bringing it to a total of 56 markets worldwide. Overall, Sonic the Hedgehog has now made $203.1 million worldwide.

Sonic’s international numbers are likely to improve as the movie comes to new markets over the next month, including large markets like China and Japan. Sonic is scheduled to open in Japan on March 27, while the movie’s Chinese opening date is uncertain due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
