Published on:

Sonic 2 hit theaters last week. Sega’s new hedgehog adventure to the big screen not only did well at the box office, but also set a record for theatrical video game adaptations.

This sequel, also directed by Jeff Fowler, earned $71 million dollars during its first weekend in the United States. The figure exceeds that of the first installment of 2020, which in its first weekend reached $58 million dollars.

One of the strengths of Sonic 2 is that in addition to bringing back Sonic voiced by Ben Schwartz and Doctor Robotnik voiced by Jim Carrey, it introduces two beloved characters from Sega’s video game: Miles “Tails” Prower (Colleen O’Shaughnessey) and Knuckles the Echidna (Idris Elba).

In second place in the ranking of the most viewed appears Morbius. Jared Leto’s movie as Marvel’s Living Vampire raked in $10 million over the weekend and is $57 million in the running. In third place is the romantic action comedy The Lost City. The film with Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum and Daniel Radcliffe brought in $9.1 million in its third weekend in US theaters.

Meanwhile, in fourth place appears Ambulance, the latest film by Michael Bay. The film directed by the person in charge of the Transformers saga and starring Eiza González, Jake Gyllenhaal and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II earned $8.7 million dollars. This is a blow to the director, as Ambulance’s numbers set her up to be a flop.

To complete post five, The Batman appears. For the sixth weekend in a row, the new story of the Murciélago continues to attract the public and generate profits. Its collection reached $6.5 million dollars. In the United States it accumulates about $360 million, while worldwide it exceeds $730 million. These numbers keep (so far) The Batman as the highest grossing film of 2022.
