Box Office USA: "Sonic 2" breaks the opening record for a video game adaptation

Box Office USA: “Sonic 2” breaks the opening record for a video game adaptation

Paramount Pictures’ streak continues in US cinemas. The studio seems to be gaining momentum with each new title. “Sonic 2. Fast as lightning” won $71 million for Good Morning. This amount is much higher than expected prior to the weekend. It debuted as Paramount’s best film since 2014, Transformers: Age of Extinction.

“Sonic 2” broke the same opening record for a video game adaptation. And the previous part belonged to the first part of the company “Sonic” and amounted to 58 million dollars. The movie hit theaters just before the pandemic began, so its combined revenue ($149 million) doesn’t reflect the true potential of the franchise. The second film should beat this score without any issues. What’s more, it has great ratings (A in CinemaScore).

Three days later, “Sonic 2. Fast As Lightning” became Paramount’s second highest-grossing title of the year. She only needs $10 million to beat Scream.

1 Batman $359.0 $134.0 4.417 4.03 no $ 200
2 Anonymous 143.0 USD $44.0 4.275 18.02 no $120

A completely different mood reigns at Universal Pictures’ headquarters. Michael Bay’s “Ambulance” got lost in theaters. No success was predicted in the predictions. However, the actual result is much worse. Instead of $12 million, the ambulance won only $8.7 million.

Why this bad result? Perhaps because the movie will be broadcast only 17 days after its premiere. So viewers have no incentive to go to the cinema, once they see it comfortably at home.

However, the “ambulance” has a chance for small drops. Those viewers who decided to watch it gave it a CinemaScore A-.

Morbius is doing a terrible job. Over its second weekend, the comic book show lost up to 74% of its revenue. All in all, she only has $57 million. The chance of a hundred million in American cinemas is fading away.

On the other hand, “Everything Everywhere At Once” became one of the biggest hits of Studio A24. And after distribution expanded to 1,212 theaters, revenue jumped from $1 million a week ago to six million. In total, he has $8.4 million in his account.
