Tickets for Sonic The Hedgehog are selling out FAST! According to Deadline, the film is estimated to have received a 3-day grossing of $53.99M and a 4-day of $64.3M. This gives our blue friend the record for best video game movie adaptation opening. For comparison, Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures' Detective Pikachu earned $58M at its debut in May 2019.
Paramount's estimates are slightly lower ($50M 3-day and $60M 4-day), but still takes the record over Pokemon either way.
