    I think the most beneficial change came not from the redesigned character but from the move in release date.

    November offered a much more crowded schedule, but now, "Sonic" has the family market essentially all to itself...

    And I don't think there'd been a new "family" movie in wide release since "Doolittle" a month earlier.

    Not that it offered much competition! :)

    I saw a sold out sneak preview of Onward yesterday. I'm curious where that ended up. It certainly would be on that chart if Disney was reporting its gross individually. Instead, they will probably roll the gross from the sneaks into the Thursday preview gross that will be reported on Friday.

    Also nice to see Portrait of a Lady On Fire doing well there at #17. I saw it today and thought it was exquisite. If it's not open near you yet, it is definitely worth keeping an eye on as it will hopefully continue to expand in the weeks to come.

    I think you missed a zero in your text. I didn't think that sounded like very much (only $138 per screen), but the total was really $650,000 (which is better at $1383 per screen).

    The reason Jason Blum is so successful is because he does what the studios used to do before they became franchise factories: develop and maintain long-term relationships, nurture and support promising new talent, get behind projects he believes in, embrace more niche films with smaller budgets in anticipation of smaller box office returns.

    I mean "if" because "Onward" just opened and we don't know what it'll do down the road.

    "Sonic" had a better opening weekend but that doesn't mean it'll be the bigger hit...

    With a 3X multiplier Onward will do about $120 million domestically.
    Sonic should end up with about $160 million domestically.

    There’s no “if” about it.

    :rolleyes:

    You can just say "it looks probable that 'Sonic' will make more money than 'Onward'".

    Claiming it's a done deal makes no sense.

    It's an "if" until "Onward" is out of theaters...

    Ok if it makes you happy.

    It looks probable than Sonic will make more money than Onward.
