Final weekend box office breaks records for SONIC THE HEDGEHOG

Yesterday we brought you our usual roundup of the weekend box office with Paramount Pictures Sonic The Hedgehog stealing the top spot from the Birds of Prey.

Now that the four-day weekend has drawn to a close in North America we have updated numbers to show how each of the top ten films performed across the three-day and four-day finals.

  1. Sonic the Hedgehog (Paramount) – $58M 3-day; $70M 4-day 
  2. Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) (WB) – $17M 3-day; $19.9M 4-day
  3. Fantasy Island (Sony) – $12.3M 3-day; $14M 4-day
  4. The Photograph (Universal) – $12.2M 3-day; $13.3M 4-day
  5. Bad Boys for Life (Sony) – $11.5M 3-day; $13M 4-day
  6. 1917 (Universal) – $8.1M 3-day; $9.4M 4-day
  7. Parasite (Neon) – $5.7M 3-day; $6.8M 4-day
  8. Jumanji: The Next Level (Sony) – $5.5M 3-day
  9. Dolittle (Universal) – $5M 3-day; $6.3M 4-day 
  10. Downhill (Fox Searchlight) – $4.6M 3-day; $5.1M 4-day

That $70m weekend for Sonic becomes the biggest opening for a video game adaption across both the three-day and four-day weekend and is also one of the top Presidents’ Day weekends of all time.

Warner Bros. Birds of Prey continues to show a less than significant drop in business in its second weekend which may prove that the film will have some sustainability in the coming weeks.
