Cinemas, of course, are currently closed across the world as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak. A number of movie studios are releasing their films early digitally as a result. Films brought forward include Onward, Bloodshot and Birds of Prey.
Sonic the Hedgehog did very well at the cinema, making $146m in the US and $306m worldwide (it's now the highest-grossing film based on a video game of all time in North America, surpassing Pokémon Detective Pikachu). To find out what we thought, check out Eurogamer's Sonic the Hedgehog review.
