According to Comicbook, the sequel has clocked up an impressive $71 million – that’s £54.4m – since its premier on Friday; for context, the first Sonic the Hedgehog movie grossed $58m (£44m) on its opening weekend.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has allegedly enjoyed the greatest opening weekend for any video-game based movie.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 sees the return of Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik and and Ben Schwartz as Sonic the Hedgehog.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, a third Sonic movie was already in production before the second one had even been released.
