Sonic the Hedgehog

After surpassing the original Sonic the Hedgehog at the domestic box office, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has now overtaken its predecessor globally.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has officially surpassed its predecessor in global box office grosses.

Jeff Fowler’s sequel features a plethora of returning cast members from the first film, including Ben Schwartz voicing the eponymous blue mammal, Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik/ Eggman, James Marsden, Adam Pally, Natasha Rothwell, and Tika Sumpter. In the film, Sonic and Tails (Colleen O'Shaughnessey) team up to stop Knuckles (Idris Elba), who has been recruited by Robotnik to obtain a mystical emerald that has the power to destroy civilizations.

Thanks to SEGA’s blockbuster videogame franchise and 2020’s successful adaptation, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has been able to build on some formidable momentum.

Since releasing in theaters on April 8th (and March 31st internationally), the Sonic sequel grossed $72.1 million in the U.S in its first three days, which surpassed the original film’s record of $58.01 million.

The film has earned $162.74 million at the domestic box office, overtaking both its predecessor and this year’s Uncharted to become the highest-grossing video game movie of all time in the U.S. Now, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has taken the first film’s spot worldwide.
