Box Office USA: "Sonic 2" breaks opening record for video game adaptation

Paramount Pictures' streak in US cinemas is in full swing. The studio seems to gain momentum with each new title. "Sonic 2. Fast as lightning" won a sensational 71 million dollars for good morning. This amount is much higher than predicted before the weekend. And the best Paramount movie start since 2014 and "Transformers: Age of Extinction".

 

"Sonic 2" broke the same opening record for a video game adaptation. The previous one belonged to the first part of "Sonic" and amounted to 58 million dollars. The movie hit theaters just before the pandemic started, so its combined revenue ($ 149 million) does not reflect the franchise's true potential. The second movie should beat this result without any problems. The more so because it has fantastic ratings (A in CinemaScore).

After three days, "Sonic 2. Fast As Lightning" is Paramount's second highest-grossing title this year. It only needs $ 10 million to overcome The Scream.

A completely different mood prevails at Universal Pictures' headquarters. Michael Bay's "ambulance" was lost in theaters. Already in the forecasts no success was foretold. However, the actual result is much worse. Instead of $ 12 million, "Ambulance" won just $ 8.7 million.

Why such a bad result? Perhaps because the film is to be broadcasted just 17 days after its cinematic premiere. So the viewers have no incentive to go to the cinema, as soon as they see it comfortably at home.

However, "Ambulance" has a chance for small drops. Those viewers who decided to watch it gave it in CinemaScore A-.

"Morbius" is doing terrible. During the second weekend, the comic book show lost as much as 74% of its proceeds. So in total, it is only $ 57 million. The chance for a hundred million from American cinemas is nowhere to be seen.

On the other hand, "Everything everywhere at once" becomes one of the biggest box office hits of the A24 studio. After the distribution expanded to 1,212 theaters, revenues from a million dollars a week ago jumped to six million. In total, he has $ 8.4 million in his account.

Already on Wednesday, the film "Father Stu" about a boxer who became a priest, directed mainly to Christian audiences, will hit theaters. He starred in Mark Wahlberg and is accompanied on-screen by Mel Gibson. On Friday, the fairy-tale spectacle "Fantastic Beasts: Dumbledore's Secrets" will appear. The film debuted in the world last week and after five days it has at least 58 million dollars to its credit.

Sonic: The Movie 2 gets a trailer full of nostalgia and references to the games

The fastest blue hedgehog in games is back in theaters - and appealing a lot to nostalgia. The new trailer for Sonic: The Movie 2, released by Paramount Pictures this morning (14), shows more of the hero's return, gives details of the new plot, makes reference to classic games and even shows what we can expect from arrival of Tails and Knuckles.

Most read articles:

The humorous tone of the first feature is again present, as well as the relationship between Sonic and the character of James Marsden. So much so that the trailer opens with the hedgehog breaking into Rachel's (Natasha Rothwell) wedding while escaping with Tails from an army of Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey).

In fact, the villain appears in the sequel with motivations much closer to those that fans know from the games than in the first film. So much so that much of the plot must revolve around the hunt for the Chaos Emeralds, the iconic jewels that are part of the series' mythology and that guarantee infinite power to those who dominate them. And that's what will appeal to Carrey's character.

And that's where we'll see the long-awaited clash between Sonic and Knuckles. The echidna voiced by Idris Elba had already been shown before, but now we see more clearly both the actor's interpretation and the antihero's ability to beat Sonic down.

For those who are crazy about references and easter eggs, the trailer already brings a good dose of mentions to the games. Starting with the classic theme song that plays on Marsden's cell phone as in the snowboarding scene, which is a very fun game with the Sonic Riders series games, which had the hedgehog doing extreme sports.

In addition, the poster released by Paramount also plays with video games, recreating the iconic art of Sonic The Hedgehog 2, for Mega Drive, but with the characters from the film.

Sonic: The Movie 2 hits Brazilian theaters on April 7.
