Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has seen massive success over it’s opening weekend and has received lots of praise, no thanks to the stellar performances of the cast which includes Idris Elba as Knuckles the Echidna. Speaking of which: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is Jim Carrey’s (Dr Robotnik) most profitable performance ever! With the very exciting trailer and marketing outclassing 2003’s Bruce Almighty when it released. It also blows the first Sonic film out of the water. In fact Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is the best performing videogame movie adaptation of all time, coming in at $71 million or £54.4m.
It gets better as well, as there are plans to extend the Sonic universe further with a third film and a TV show centred on Knuckles confirmed by SEGA themselves. It looks like we are all in for a huge and exciting expansive universe.
