BOX OFFICE: “Sonic the Hedgehog” takes a dive as many hear “The Call of the Wild”

The second weekend of the surprising smash hit video game adaptation is slightly more down to Earth as *Sonic the Hedgehog” is on a $26 million pace, after a $58 million opening.

Down over 50%, how far below 50% we won’t know until Sunday. It could hit $27 on its second weekend, and is already on track to clear the $100 million mark today or Sunday.

“Call of the Wild” is out performing expectations, with a $23 million and change weekend. The CGI dogs in the movie pushed its costs into the $130 million range, so that won’t be good enough to save it’s digital bacon.

“Brahms: The Boy II” is bombing, only managing a $5 million opening.

“Birds of Prey” is the third place movie of a very thin weekend, pulling in $7 million, enough to push it over $70 million, still a long way from $100.

“Bad Boys” are within reach of $200 million and could hit that mark with one more decent weekend in the top ten after this one.
