It's very rare that Disney has to duke it out with any other studio for box office supremacy, but that's what happened this weekend with its 20th Century title "The Call of the Wild" against Paramount's "Sonic the Hedgehog."
The adaptation of Jack London's classic novel starring Harrison Ford and a CGI dog brought in an estimated $24.8 million its opening weekend at the domestic box office. But "Sonic," the classic video game adaptation, topped that with a $26.3 million take in its second weekend in theaters (its domestic total is now over $100 million).

By Saturday night, the hedgehog had passed the gruff Ford movie as it took in $12 million on the day versus $9.9 million. Sunday estimates have "Sonic" edging out "Wild" once the weekend ends.
