This week in the box office, an object lesson in the value of perseverance in the face of underwhelming beginnings.

The blue hedgehog might have had a tricky time in production, but he’s come out on top: Sonic the Hedgehog raced to the top of the charts in its opening weekend, for a weekend taking of $3,878,349 across 365 screens, for an average taking of $10,626 per screen. The spiny speed demon displaced Birds of Prey from the top spot in its second week, but the feminist action flick is still going strong, adding another $2,595,464 across its 316 screens, for a very healthy screen average of $8,213.
