Based on the popular video game franchise published by Sega, Sonic the Hedgehog follows the story of the world’s speediest hedgehog (Schwartz) as he embraces his new home on Earth. Everything is going fine until he accidentally knocks out a power grid and gets the attention of evil genius Dr. Robotnik (Carrey), who plans to dominate the world. To stop Dr. Robotnik from rising to power, Sonic teams up with his new best friend, Sheriff Tom Wachowski (James Marsden).
Originally set to open in theaters in November 2019, Sonic the Hedgehog was delayed a couple of times so it could redesign the look of its titular character after fans balked at the protagonist’s creepy appearance in the movie’s now-infamous first trailer. After making the necessary changes to Sonic’s appearance, the movie found a lot of success in its new release date last February. The Paramount film brought in an estimated $57 million domestically during its opening weekend, which is the biggest debut of any video game movie adaption ever.
Against a production budget of $85 million, Sonic the Hedgehog went on to gross $146 million in North America and $160 million overseas, for a total of $306 million worldwide.
Though there have been talks for a potential sequel, it hasn’t been greenlit yet.
