Kind of a shame to me, I thought Detective Pikachu was so much better

Pikachu (and Warcraft) are still higher in the overall international box office, this is just the U.S. box office. I do prefer Pikachu as well, though Sonic was still fairly good to me.

You can add Cinemark to the list of theater chains currently closed. Today was their first day.

Now if only we could get another decent live action anime Hollywood remake besides Alita.

What scares me as this reinforces that removing a game from its properties story and in sonics case even its themes seem to be the better US seller. Sonic sold better not because it was higher quality but because it required no investment in the original property. Making it totally accessible as a no brainer kids film.
