The first trailer for Paramount’s upcoming “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie has just hit the internet, and it’s definitely something!
Check out the trailer below:
Here is the official synopsis: SONIC THE HEDGEHOG is a live-action adventure comedy based on the global blockbuster videogame franchise from Sega that centers on the infamously brash bright blue hedgehog. The film follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound – human – best friend Tom Wachowski (James Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination. The film also stars Tika Sumpter and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic.
I don’t even know where to begin with this one. Aside from the generic movie plot, the trailer gives waaay too much information away. It’s one thing for a trailer to be enigmatic, and it’s another to offer too little – but this is a case of knowing the entire plot of the movie and showing us perhaps a bit too much.
Let’s talk about the elephant in the room – the blue one. That Sonic CG model is… well, it’s definitely a CG model. His legs, his hands (or paws, I’m not even sure), and that face – this is what nightmares look like.
The real highlight here is seeing Jim Carrey as Dr Robotnik, or Eggman (we really aren’t sure yet). It looks like Carrey was mighty hungry, because that scenery sure wasn’t chewing itself. This looks like a great vehicle for the veteran actor to let loose and have fun, so despite my jabs I actually am excited to see him in this movie.
“Sonic the Hedgehog” hits theaters in November.
