Sega Corporation has today confirmed that the Paramount Pictures film Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has now officially recorded global box office sales of $331,64 million – surpassing the $319.71 million sales record set by the original 2020 film.

This makes the blue blur’s second big-screen outing the “top-grossing” video game adaptation of all time. It follows on from the movie experiencing the biggest opening for a video game movie ever – grossing $72.1 million in the US within the first three days. The original banked $58.01 million in the same time frame.

In the US alone, it’s also been recognised domestically as the top-grossing video game-based movie of all time – surpassing the previous film’s $148.97 million and grossing $162.74 million at the box office. Outside of this location, the Sonic 2 movie debuted in 47 markets as the No. 1 movie.

It’s not done yet, either – with a Japan release of the movie due out this August. Have you been to the cinema to see Sonic the Hedgehog 2 yet? Leave a comment down below.
