Music Sonic

Paramount’s adventure comedy “Sonic the Hedgehog” clung to a narrow lead in the North American box office Music this weekend, taking in an estimated $26.3 million, industry watcher Exhibitor Relations reported Sunday.

“Sonic,” starring Jim Carrey as the villainous Dr. Robotnik, recounts the adventures of a turbocharged blue hedgehog with supersonic speed. Films based on video games rarely excel at the box office, but this one set a record for the genre with its $58 million Music opening last weekend.
