Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Zooms Past $400 Million Globally


Deadline reports that Paramount’s Sonic The Hedgehog 2 has crossed the $400M threshold at the global box office, including $190.6M from domestic and $209.5M internationally through Tuesday. It is currently the No. 8 film worldwide in 2022 and is likely to jump up a few notches as it still has Japan and Hong Kong to release. At Paramount’s CineEurope presentation today, a threequel was touted.

The little blue critter’s sequel initially got off to a fast-breaking early overseas start in late March and added markets over several months.

Its Top 5 offshore markets to date are the UK ($34.3M), Mexico ($22.1M), France ($17.3M), Australia ($16.6M) and Brazil ($12M).

Domestically, Sonic 2 debuted in April with $71M, outstripping the three-day opening results of the 2020 original movie which had bowed over a holiday weekend.
