Sonic the Hedgehog Wins Big at the Holiday Weekend Box Office with $57M
Moviegoers showed a lot of love to Sonic the Hedgehog over the Valentine's Day weekend, as the Paramount Pictures release has set a new high-bar for video game adaptations in Hollywood. It easily took the top spot away from Birds of Prey, the latest DC Comics adaptation from Warner Bros., which was entering its second weekend after a rough start. This weekend's other newcomers all did somewhere between good and not-so-good.

Sonic the Hedgehog earned a reported $57 million for the three-day weekend box office and, thanks to the Presidents Day holiday, it's expected to take in $70 million during the four-day start. Considering the reported $90 million production budget, that is a killer beginning for the directorial debut of Jeff Fowler. It now holds the record for the biggest opening weekend ever for a video game movie, besting last year's Detective Pikachu, which opened to $54.3 million, on its way to $433 million globally.
