Paramount’s adventure comedy ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ leads North American box office this weekend, earning an estimated $26.3 million.

“Sonic,” starring Jim Carrey as the villainous Dr. Robotnik, recounts the adventures of a turbocharged blue hedgehog with supersonic speed.

Films based on video games rarely excel at the box office, but this one set a record for the genre with its $58 million opening last weekend.

The Call of the Wild

20th Century´s new adventure film “The Call of the Wild,” starring Harrison Ford, placed second, taking in $24.8 million for the Friday-to-Sunday period.

The story of a man and a surprisingly realistic, computer-generated sled dog is loosely based on the 1903 Jack London classic, set in the wilds of Alaska and Canada´s Klondike region.

Birds of Prey

In third place, down one spot from last week, was Warner Bros. superhero film “Birds of Prey,” at $7 million.
