Los Angeles, May 26 - Paramount Pictures' action-adventure comedy film, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is all set to beat Marvel biggie Black Widow at the domestic (North America) as well as the overseas box office. Based on the video game franchise published by Sega, Sonic 2 is putting strong legs at the North American box office despite it having started streaming on Paramount Plus.

Directed by Jeff Fowler, the sequel to Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) grossed $380K on its 7th domestic Tuesday, which helped the movie to reach $182 million. As per the Hollywood industry trackers, the film will beat Marvel Studios, Black Widow's lifetime domestic total of $183.6 million by Saturday to become the 6th biggest Hollywood movie in North America during the covid-19 pandemic.

Sonic 2 was released in theaters on April 8 and scored the biggest opening weekend for a video game movie at the domestic box office by grossing a massive $72 million. At the worldwide box office, the movie so far has grossed approx, $376 million. It will also beat the lifetime worldwide total of Black Widow, which had grossed $379.7 million in July last year.

It has also become the highest-grossing video movie in USA history, after it overtook its predecessor on Saturday (April 30). Sonic the Hedgehog, which was released in 2020, had grossed $146 million in its lifetime run but it garnered praise which paved the way for its successor to go big at the box office.

Paramount Pictures guarantees its movies at least 45 days exclusively in theaters before making them available to stream on Paramount Plus. In the case of Sonic 2, the movie followed an exactly 45-day timeline before becoming available to stream on its 46th day.

Sonic 2 stars Ben Schwartz reprising his role as the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog, alongside James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally, Shemar Moore, Colleen O'Shaughnessey, Lee Majdoub, Idris Elba, and Jim Carrey. The film follows Sonic and Tails, who team up to find Master Emerald before Dr. Robotnik and Knuckles the Echidna do, while also contending with the military organization G.U.N. Stay tuned...
