Sonic the Hedgehog 2 seems to be breaking new ground as SEGA announced that the sequel has officially become the highest-earning videogame movie adaptation in the US, garnering $162.74 million in domestic ticket sales to date. This means Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has already outperformed the previous Sonic film, which grossed $148.97 million when it was released in April 2020.
Highest-Grossing Videogame Movie
So far, the picture has grossed $331.64 million worldwide. This places it below previous videogame movie adaptations like Warcraft, Detective Pikachu, and Uncharted, which earned better globally — but there’s always a possibility Sonic the Hedgehog 2’s revenues may increase when it eventually premieres in Japan on August 19, 2022.
About Sonic The Hedgehog 2
Sonic is ready for more independence after settling in Green Hills, and Tom and Maddie agree to leave him at home while they go on vacation. Dr. Robotnik returns, this time accompanied by a new colleague, Knuckles, in quest of an emerald with the potential to both construct and destroy civilizations. Sonic joins forces with his own sidekick, Tails, and sets out on a quest to recover the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands. Jeff Fowler is directing the film, which stars Jim Carrey, James Marsden, and Ben Schwartz.
