Paramount's "Sonic the Hedgehog" won the domestic box office with an estimated $57 million ($68 million over by Monday).




The movie performed higher than the studio's projection of $40 million.




$57 million is the biggest opening ever for a video game movie, besting the $54.3 million opening by "Pokémon Detective Pikachu."




Best picture Oscar-winner "Parasite" took in $5.5 million over the weekend, after Neon expanded it to 2,000 screens. Its biggest weekend to date.

Paramount finally has a box office winner, and it's thanks to a video game character and Jim Carrey wearing a silly mustache.
Following duds like "Gemini Man," "Terminator: Dark Fate," and most recently "The Rhythm Section," the studio is atop the domestic box office this Presidents' Day weekend with "Sonic the Hedgehog."
The family-friendly movie brought in an estimated $57 million on over 4,100 screens ($68 million by Monday). That's quiet a performance for a movie that Paramount only projected in the low $40 million range for the weekend.
