USA Box Office: Sonic Races Forward

Image Last weekend, American distributors delighted their moviegoers with a whole bunch of premieres, and the audience, apparently, missed the news so much that most of them made it to the top 5 of the North American box office. Sonic the hedgehog turned out to be the fastest, surprising many.

The top five US box offices for February 14-16 are as follows:

1. "Sonic in the Movie"


Week at the box office: 1
Added: $ 57 million
Total box office: $ 57 million
Sank / Rise: - (-)

After the release of the first trailer for the film, Paramount Studios had to listen to a lot of criticism. Viewers didn't like Sonic's design and Hollywood smile, so the project team went back to work to fix it. That is why the powerful start of Sonic in the Cinema is really a great achievement. The studio hoped for about $ 40 million, and as a result, the picture set a record among video game adaptations, beating the result of Detective Pikachu ($ 54.4 million).

2. "Birds of Prey: The Fantastic Story of Harley Quinn"


Week at the box office: 2
Added: $ 17.1 million
Total box office: $ 59.3 million
Sank / Rise: -1 (-48.2%)

No matter how hard the Warner Bros. bosses try, Birds of Prey tend to crawl rather than fly. Thanks to the hype around February 14 and the celebration of Presidents' Day, the blockbuster could make good money, but in the end it lost half of its audience, and its fees leave much to be desired. So far, Birds of Prey has only $ 145 million worldwide at the box office.

3. "Fantasy Island"


Week at the box office: 1
Added: $ 12.4 million
Total box office: $ 12.4 million
Sank / Rise: - (-)

In the battle of debutants for third place, the winner was Fantasy Island, a full-length remake of the 70s series of the same name. The film, although it does not enjoy the favor of critics and is significantly inferior to the first results of the horror films "Ouija. Devil's Board "($ 19.9 million) and" Happy Death Day "($ 26 million), but has already paid back its $ 7 million budget.

4. "Photography"


Week at the box office: 1
Added: $ 12.3 million
Total box office: $ 12.3 million
Sank / Rise: - (-)

Last weekend, Stella Mega's drama turned out to be the only representative of romantic cinema, which surely fueled the audience's interest in her. Critics and viewers liked this touching story about love past and present, and the film did not have enough to get around Fantasy Island.

5. Bad Boys Forever


Week at the box office: 5
Added: $ 11.3 million
Total box office: $ 181.3 million
Lowered / Up: -3 (-5.9%)

Unlike Harley Quinn and company, the bad guys took advantage of the festive mood of the Americans - in a week, the action's box office sank by only 6%. Now the blockbuster has $ 370 million in its piggy bank, which is twice the amount collected by Gemini.
