The Sonic the Hedgehog movie has generated over $100 million (76.6m) on its opening weekend.
“It’s not that the Sonic movie is bad, although it’s certainly not good,” Eurogamer editor Oli Welsh said in his review of the Sonic movie, calling it a “charmless cut-and-paste job”.
The success can’t just be attributed to that, though, as it’s also thought to have generated $43m (33m) worldwide, too.
While it has some way to go before it eclipses Detective Pikachu or Warcraft, for now it looks like Sonic the Hedgehog just be one of the most successful video game adaptations of all time, already surpassing other comparatively successful game-to-movie spin-offs like Street Fighter and Silent Hill.
