WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Sonic the Hedgehog repeats atop the chart with 26.3MM on a 55 percent drop that's not too steep considering last weekend had a holiday.  It's made almost as much overseas as domestic, which ain't bad considering China is disrupted by the coronavirus.  Call of the Wild places with 24.8MM against a reported 125-150MM budget. Ouch. Andboth of these will likely get steamrolled by Pixar in two weeks. Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey shows with 7MM on another precipitous skid of 60 percent.  Brahms: The Boy II takes the fourth slot with a 5.9MM debut, which is okay but is going to be nowhere near the return on investment of the original.  Bad Boys for Life rounds out the Top Five with another 5.86MM as it closes in on 200MM domestic.
