A new report has revealed the movie sequel Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has become the highest gross domestic video game film of all time.

According to media outlet Deadline, the sequel has sales of almost $300 million, specifically $287 million. Following that is the original Sonic the Hedgehog movie from 2020, Uncharted, Pokemon Detective Pikachu, and Lara Croft Tomb Raider.

“The international Sonic 2 cume is now $142M for $287.8M global meaning the little blue critter will zoom past $300M any day now,” Deadline states.

“Leading the charge for Sonic are the UK ($26.3M), Mexico ($15.7M), France ($14.3M), Australia ($13.1M) and Brazil ($8.9M).”

Sonic has grasped the hearts of the UK fans with a lot of sales there. It will be arriving in the Middle East next week clashing with Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, which was not that received well in the US. The sales of the Sonic sequel will just continue to grow higher from here on out.

In Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic and Tails reunite and are looking for the Master Emerald. Meanwhile, Dr. Eggman and his new friend (pawn) Knuckles the Echidna crash the party and spoil the fun, but the former has something sinister in his mind.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is now in theaters.
