It’s almost the end of February and Sonic The Hedgehog is first at the Box Office for the second week in a row! Birds of Prey falls further and was the “Call to The Wild Fantasy Island is at #3! WE’RE TALKING ABOUT IT!
Paramount’s Sonic The Hedgehog continues to be top critter of the litter at the global and international box office this weekend with an added $38.3M from 56 overseas markets. That brings the offshore to $96.5M and worldwide to $203.1M. Sonic raced into an additional 16 hubs this frame, with several No. 1 debuts, led by Russia’s $6.3M at 1,800 locations. The holdover markets saw a mere 35% drop. So far, the UK leads all play at $19.1M after 10 days and with a No. 1 hold. Mexico has skated to $12.3M and France is at $9.1M coming out of the second frame. In new entries, Fox/Disney’s The Call Of The Wild barked to $15.4M in 40 material markets. The global weekend was worth $40.2M. Based on Jack London’s American story, the expensive film that Disney inherited is coming in above comps in Europe and most of the Asian markets where it is playing, but is soft in Latin America. With China still closed, and a spike in coronavirus cases in Korea, concern continues to grow in terms of the hit that global box office will take in 2020. We hear that Disney has moved Pixar’s Onward off of its initial Korea and Taiwan dates, pushing later into April, for example, as other local films are also understood to be hewing the same path.
