The new movie about the blue hedgehog continues to sweep wherever it goes and has already managed to surpass its predecessor in terms of revenue.
The movie “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” released a few days ago turned out to be quite a success. Adaptation is currently the highest-earning cinematic production based on games in the US .
In the US market, the project has generated $ 152 million (and counting) in revenue so far. Thus – as pointed out by Ben Schwartz, who voices the title character – the picture achieved a higher result than the previous part.
The first installment of the adventures of the blue hedgehog was the leader among screen adaptations of games so far, so now “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” took over.
Sequel is also doing well globally. Worldwide, production has grossed $294 million to date. However, it is still a long way from the international record holder among video games based on games – this is the World of Warcraft adaptation with the result of 439 million dollars.
“Sonic the Hedgehog 2″ is still showing in theaters, so it can be assumed that the final picture score will be higher. Paramount sees the potential in the series, as the creation of a ” movie universe ” has already been announced – the third installment of the series and the series about Knuckles are planned.
