Sonic the Hedgehog has surpassed Detective Pikachu to develop into the highest-grossing video game film ever in the USA. Following this newest weekend (that was the worst since 1998), Sonic has made $145.8 million in the united states, edging out Detective Pikachu’s $144.1 million.
On a worldwide scale, it is a different story. Sonic has generated $306.5 million globally, which can be over $100 million less than the $433 million which Detective Pikachu made throughout its run. A vast bit of the narrative is that Sonic was postponed in China because of COVID-19; therefore, it is missing out on a great deal of cash that Detective Pikachu had in the marketplace. Detective Pikachu made $93.7 million in China alone.
Neither of these movies is the most notable video game films, possibly, as Warcraft retains the record with $439 million globally. Warcraft had an abysmal run in US theaters, which makes just $47.4 million, but it pulled $391.7 million in global markets.
The 2010 Jake Gyllenhaal film, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, created $336 million globally.
You will find more video game adaptations on the market, such as an Uncharted film starring Tom Holland Mark Wahlberg, in addition to movies based on Dragon Hunter and Mortal Kombat.
