It additionally beat “Sonic The Hedgehog 2” by means of $15 million in that movie’s 2d weekend in theaters (by way of Box Office Mojo). Sadly for Warner Bros., hitting that anticipated benchmark nonetheless isn’t essentially a excellent signal — its opening weekend is now the bottom of any of the 11 movies that make up the Wizarding Global franchise, in accordance to Box Office Mojo.
