The delay to redesign Sonic seems to have paid off as the Sonic the Hedgehog movie took the top spot at the box office over the weekend and claims the highest opening ever for a video game movie.
Birds of Prey took the top spot at the box office but it was definitely not an opening that WB/DC wanted as it underperformed with the lowest opening of any recent DC movie while a number of Oscar winners and nominees saw bumps in their box office performance over the weekend.
Birds of Prey kicks off February and seems to continue DC’s current streak of well-reviewed movies like Aquaman, Shazam! and Joker.
The movies start to get slightly larger this month as Birds of Prey, Sonic the Hedgehog, The Call of the Wild, The Invisible Man, Fantasy Island and more are out in theaters.
Much like Suicide Squad before it, this weekend’s Birds of Prey is using it’s soundtrack as a major promotional tool, with Atlantic Records releasing a new single/music video every Friday last month and the full soundtrack out this Friday with the movie.
