Sonic the Hedgehog beats Call of the Wild by a whisker at U.S. box office

Jim Carrey

The hedgehog narrowly beat the wild dog to claim the top spot at the North American box office over the weekend (February 21-23, 2020).

Sonic the Hedgehog edged out Harrison Ford’s Call of the Wild to score a second week at number one – but only by a whisker.

Jim Carrey’s new movie was expected to dominate at the box office, but the adaptation of Jack London’s classic tale surprised film experts by leading Friday night and going on to make $25 million over the three days.

But Sonic won the weekend with a $26.3 million haul, passing the $100 million mark in North America and $200 million mark worldwide in 10 days.

Birds of Prey landed in third place in the U.S., notching up a three-week tally of $72 million, while Brahms: The Boy II and Bad Boys for Life complete the new top five.
