Jeff Fowler, director of Sonic the Hedgehog, seems to be quite happy with how the movie is doing. Yesterday we learned that it's on-track outpace the opening of Detective Pikachu, the current video game-to-movie record holder. Late on the opening day of the film, Fowler took to Twitter to share the following comment.
What... a... DAY!!! No words can describe the appreciation I'm feeling right now. You've taken this little blue hedgehog to EPIC heights. We never could have done it without the FANS... THANK YOU for your LOVE and SUPPORT. The future is VERY bright for the BLUE BLUR
There have been many questions about a potential sequel to Sonic the Hedgehog. While nothing is concrete yet, it does seem this strong opening weekend could pave the way easily.
