Paramount sets a release date for the Blue Blur's second outing
What's the world even going to be like in 2022? Nobody knows, but there's one thing Paramount Pictures does know: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will be in theaters or whatever has replaced theaters by then on April 8, 2022.
The Sonic date was announced along with a slew of premiere date changes, including A Quiet Place Part 2 (from September 6, 2020 to April 23, 2021), Top Gun: Maverick (December 23, 2020 to July 2, 2021), and the new Jackass movie (July 2021 to September 3, 2021).
No new details were revealed about the Sonic sequel other than what was in the initial announcement.
When Sonic the Hedgehog first opened, it managed to score the biggest opening weekend of all time for a video game-based movie, and also boasted the fourth-best debut for Presidents Day weekend. Its full worldwide box office landed at $306,766,470 according to Box Office Mojo, and it hit On Demand services early shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic started initiating lockdowns.
