Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has smashes past $400 million box office


And it’s not even hit finished its world tour

Paramount Pictures has revealed that the blockbuster sequel Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is continuing to pull in the punters as it speeds its way through worldwide theaters — As reported by Deadline, the movie has smashed past an incredible $400 million USD box office since its release in April of this year.

The movie, already the highest-grossing video game adaptation of all time, sees The Blue Blur (once again voiced by Ben Schwartz), in a race against the evil Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) to recover the fabled Chaos Emeralds. Sonic is assisted on his journey by long-time pal Tails (Colleen O’Shaughnessey) and must face down the powerful and mysterious echidna, Knuckles (Idris Elba). The sequel was praised for its comical script and likable characters, but criticized for its length and relatively rote narrative.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is currently number eight in the Top Ten Highest Grossing Movies of 2022, with the sequel still yet to hit the financially lucrative box office markets of Hong Kong and Japan, which will likely add further coffers to the Paramount Pictures vault. Of course, the incredible success of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is a consistent reminder of how things could have been so different for the cinematic adaptation. Still, it’s good to know that the “original” movie Sonic still eventually found his way into cinema history.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is available now on streaming services, with a Blu-ray and DVD release planned for August. Sonic Origins launches today on PlayStation, PC, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch.
