Earlier on Sunday, we shared the news of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 pulling in $71 million at the domestic box office, making it the biggest opening weekend for any video game movie ever. Obviously, that tally also helped the movie secure the #1 spot at the box office for this weekend.

In honor of that amazing achievement, the official Sonic the Hedgehog movie Twitter account shared the image above. Not only is the success boast-worthy, but it was the perfect opportunity to pay tribute to Sonic’s original game sequel.


As you can see above, the promo image trumpeting the movie’s success is a homage to the title screen for Sonic the Hedgehog 2. It’s always nice to see people involved with game films recognizing where their content came from!
