Sonic the Hedgehog has returned to some theaters in the United States and Canada for a limited time. Of all the major releases so far this year, Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the largest. The character is one of the most iconic characters in the popular culture of video games.
Although most people were skeptical when the film was first released, its optimistic storyline and Jim Carrey’s performance as Doctor of Robotics eventually won the fans’ love. The release date of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was even confirmed last month.
Tracking the box office of a famous movie is always fun, especially in the case of “Sonic the Hedgehog”. When Sonic’s original trailer was released, things must have looked bad. When Sonic was redesigned, opinions changed, and the film debuted to great acclaim.
Not only that, it was also surprised at the box office and became the top-grossing domestic release of movies based on video game attributes. When the COVID-19 pandemic, its Japanese and Chinese releases were delayed. Interestingly, Sonic the Hedgehog was released in China last month due to the reopening of the Chinese Theater, but the box office did not perform well. Sonic’s box office has not yet been completed, because some fans can watch the movie again on the big screen.
For those who cannot go to the theater, the movie can be rented and purchased through video-on-demand, and some physical home media versions are also provided.
