‘Sonic The Hedgehog 2’ Breaks Previous Movie Records

Back in the 90s and 2000s, it was commonly believed that turning video games into movies was a recipe for disaster, especially after failures like The Super Mario Bros. Movie. However, in recent years, video game adaptations have seen a resurgence, thanks to advancements in special effects and a closer adherence to the original material. While most of these movies still don’t break the bank, they are performing better. In 2020, Sonic The Hedgehog proved that making a successful video game movie was possible by delivering a strong performance at the box office.

Today, the sequel, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, has surpassed its predecessor in box office success, becoming the highest-grossing video game movie to date. Sonic 2 has raked in $71 million in the US alone, surpassing the original movie’s $58 million earnings. With international ticket sales included, the movie has totaled an impressive $141 million.

The reception for the film has been largely positive, with a current Rotten Tomatoes rating of 67% from critics and an impressive 97% from audiences. The general consensus is that while the story may be somewhat generic, the movie is still enjoyable and well-received, thanks to standout performances from Ben Schwartz as Sonic, Idris Elba as Knuckles, and Jim Carrey as Doctor Robotnik.
