It’s been revealed that Sonic The Hedgehog is now the highest-grossing video game movie of all time in the United States.
According to ComicBookMovie, Sonic The Hedgehog has managed to make an impressive $145.8 million in the US.
This means that it leapfrogged Pokemon: Detective Pikachu as the highest-grossing video game movie ever in the US.
Pokemon: Detective Pikachu made a solid $144.1 million in the United States.
However, Sonic The Hedgehog is still not the world’s highest-grossing video game movie yet since it hasn’t been released in China.
That means that if we go by the worldwide box office records, the technically Detective Pikachu is still the highest-grossing video game movie ever made.
Sonic The Hedgehog has made a lot of money in the US
That said, it should only be a matter of time before Sonic gets that crown.
However, the recent Coronavirus outbreak might have put the breaks on Sonic’s worldwide box office, which is a shame.
It might end up making some money via on-demand services and Blu-ray release.
That said, with the current pandemic, the future is very uncertain for Sonic the Hedgehog.
As far as other movies are concerned, it seems as though we’re going to have to wait a while before anything major is released.
No Time To Die, A Quiet Place Part 2, The New Mutants, Mulan and Fast And Furious 9 have all been delayed due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
