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.
This week on the podcast, Zach, Chris, and Joe discuss the first look at the new Robert Pattinson Batsuit, the new Bond theme by Billie Eilish, the return of Rick Moranis in the upcoming Honey I Shrunk the Kids sequel, the 92nd Oscar winners, Doctor Sleep and more.
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.
Terminator: Dark Fate is out this week along with Oscar nominees Parasite and Harriet, the final season and complete series of Ballers and more.
Maleficent: Mistress of Evil took the top spot at the box office over the weekend but it was far below the opening of the first movie and below expectations, while Joker is on track to become the highest-grossing R rated film of all time worldwide (without adjusting for inflation).
Joker remained extremely strong in its second weekend, delivering the best second weekend in October history, while Gemini Man and Jexi failed to deliver and The Addams Family performed slightly above expectations.
