Sonic The Hedgehog Movie – Trailer 2 – with new improved Sonic?

Sonic The Hedgehog Movie Sonic The Hedgehog Movie… yes, you thought you’d got away with it, didn’t you?

No, they redesigned him just to look a lot more actually LIKE Sonic, but… the film still looks like a complete waste of time. As they say, you can’t polish a turd, but you can roll it in glitter.

This is technically the second trailer, but then it’s been reclassified as the first trailer. Rewriting history, much?

The Sonic The Hedgehog movie is released on February 14th 2020, so as well as being in the Jan/Feb crap slot for films that aren’t good enough for a release at a decent time of year, this one will also collide with the first half term of the year.

Check out the new trailer below:

Sonic The Hedgehog is coming to a cinema near you in late 2019, and now there’s a new poster and… a trailer?

Well, the ‘trailer’ is from Mr Red, and the poster was spotted on, but yeah… man legs, and Adidas trainers instead of Sonic’s usual? Ugh!

Sonic The Hedgehog has made for a great series of games, and most recently, the Sega Megadrive Classics on PS4 and Xbox One was unsurpassable, with 50 games ready to play, and even at an RRP of £24.99, it still represents tremendous value.

However, videogames rarely make good movies, as has been shown three times with the Tomb Raider films, with Alicia Vikander’s 2018 reboot being spectactularly dull.

2019 is already forcing onto us Pokemon: Detective Pikachu with Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool 2), and going off at a tangent, there’s also scant hope for the kids movie Dora The Explorer with Isabela Moner (Sicario 2: Soldado, Transformers: The Last Knight), who’s about 10 years older than the character she will portray.
But today, we have the announcement of a live-action Sonic The Hedgehog movie,

The premise simply states: A cop in rural town of Green Hills will help Sonic escape from the government who is looking to capture him.

In the movie, Jim Carrey (Dark Crimes) will play the evil Dr. Ivo Robotnik, X-Men‘s James Marsden is Tom Wachowski, plus Tika Sumpter (Ride Along 1-3) and Neal McDonough (Suits, Call of Duty: Black Ops III), and playing the role of the voice of Sonic, himself, is Ben Schwartz, who I’m not massively familiar with, but I note he was in the recent Blue Iguana, which also starred the superb Sam Rockwell, even if the movie itself was a bit hit or miss. He’s also set to appear in a US remake of The Wrong Mans, which starred James Corden and Matthew Baynton (You, Me and the Apocalypse).

It’s also director Jeff Fowler first full-length movie, after a short film, Gopher Broke, in 2004. Why are huge films sometimes given to first-time directors? It rarely makes sense.

Sonic The Hedgehog is due for release on December 26th 2019. That’s over a year away, so I would bet my house on the date changing.

Check out the poster below, and I note that it says “A New Speed Of Hero” as the tagline, paying homage to Howard The Duck‘s A New Breed Of Hero, so will this new film be just as much of a flop?
