While the critical reception of Sonic The Hedgehog 2 is clearly very mixed, it seems that the moviegoers have shown themselves in mass to support the suite of Paramount Pictures. The film made his debut last weekend in the United States, where it cost $ 71 million to the box office. This is the biggest opening weekend of a movie based on a video game.
This figure also comfortably exceeds the first film, with about 22% ticket sales more than Sonic 1. Of course, it should be noted that the original has arrived at the strongest of the Pandemic of Covid-19, which means that the attendance of cinemas was enough much background. Yet the initial performance of the suite are very impressive.
In Deadline’s comments, Chris Aronson of Paramount qualified Sonic 2 of “Victory for Paramount and for the industry as a whole”, greeting the ability to develop the franchise. “The filmmakers have done an incredible job by realizing a film that is both at the service of Sonic’s legions as well as the general and family audience,” he says.
Although it’s not a perfect movie, we had a good time with, especially all Easter eggs and game reminders. You can read our reflections in our magazine Sonic The Hedgehog 2.
