Well Jim Carey looks fun...i mean that's literally the only thing positive i have to say about this...thing?

The comedy from everyone else feels really bad (as does everyone else's acting...and if these were the best bits they could pull for the first trailer there are alarm bells!), the choice of music is REALLY strange (Gangsters paradise...THAT'S the song choice for a Sonic movie...REALLY?), and the animation on the CG is giving the Woody Wood Pecker movie a run for it's money...but Sonic looks just freaking weird, especially his real human teeth!

Also something about the editing in the shots feels REALLY bad, like the kind of stuff you get from someone on YouTube or a straight to TV kids film...i can't put my finger on it but...it feels so off.

...i'm still seeing it, i'm a big Sonic nut and i guess that just means i love punishment these days, but my exceptions are so low i might just start playing Sonic 06 to pick them up.

Looks like someone will be replacing the Ghostbusters remake as worst movie of recent times. I long for the Super Mario Bros. live action movie after watching this garbage trailer. Terrible.

OK, DP looks much better than this.

pluses: The coin noise, Cyclops, Jim Carrey
minuses: the coins are portals(?), cg, music choice, "every hero has a genesis" I mean come on

This looks to be about on par with Hop (another movie starring Cyclops) so it doesn't have a high bar to clear to be acceptable.

Note: as a parent your idea of acceptable has to be adjusted constantly. I've seen so many Tinkerbell movies...

Send that Blue thing back to Hell. Why couldn't they just stick to the original design for Sonic?
Can't wait to see the sequel with Knuckles and Tails. Spoiler... never gonna happen.

Speaking of the Super Mario Brothers movie, Sonic's design reminds me of the nightmare fuel that was the goombahs from that film.

The thing whay Detective Pikachu works is that they actually took time to stay within the physicality of the character and taking time to making it as real as possible while maintaining its proportions people know for 20 years. I have no idea why they thought it was a good idea to step away from Sonic's appearance and making hime look "more real" as this acheived the complete oppositve. Having him be this comical blue thing, very compact, with big shoes would actually amp up the nostalgia rather than reinterpreting a beloved character. The very last scene in the trailer shows that they makers of this film cared for that indeed whehn going full Robotnik... jesus, this is even more bad than Will Smith as the Genie.

Jim Carey is the only reason I want to see this. What they should of did with Sonic was keep the figure they used in Wreck It Ralph and just give him some texture... Done. Instead we get a blue version of the kid from Jumanji turning into a monkey.

I just find it hilarious how they will put those old rock (in this case hip hop) songs in these animated movies so the stupid parents in the movie theater will go "hell yeah!" when they are taking their stupid children to watch these stupid movies.

It's like Captain Marvel wearing a NIN shirt throughout her movie. These things are veeeery well calculated. They know exactly how stupid the moviegoer is and how they crave for a "connection" with a character so they can feel special or something. I don't know, humans are weird and this generation especially is the weirdest of all.

Jim Carrey is a former comedian by now, kinda like Adam Sandler. But I trust he could still redeem himself. I've seen Michael Keaton and Matthew Maccounaghey become relevant and actually delivering incredible performances when nobody expected. So there's faith. But he depends on good writing... and good comedy is basically dead. The last true good comedy movies were all from Sascha Baron Cohen and they all had a very specific style.

Thankfully, great movies are still made every day so everything is fine. But holy shit, can the mainstream get any worse?

I couldn't agree more, and the best thing we can do to prevent our culture getting whored out is to not support it financially.

I agree, the use of "Gangsta's Paradise" was so random it made me cringe.

I don't care for this movie, even with Jim Carrey in it...

Man, I'm ashamed to admit, it doesn't look half bad.
And I was one of the people from the getgo saying this was going to be pure shit and was just laughing about the thought of it.

To be fair, I think it's Jim Carrey that sparks my interest here. If it wasn't for him, my interest level would be closer to zilch.
But, I think he'll be a great fit for the movie. I'll watch it for free online or something. I won't pay for it, god no.

The most important immediate difference between this and detective Pikachu, is that this is set in the real world in modern times. Detective Pikachu cleverly chose to use Pokemons actual setting and a huge part of it's appeal is seeing that world come to life.


In the true tradition of Sonic this feels like a focus group checklist created by a few generations removed

I'm hearing alot of people saying this is 'just a kids films' and that argument really grinds my gears. Just because it's aimed at kids doesn't give it a pass for being shit. Kids aren't stupid, films used to make an effort to be entertaining and memorable for children, now all we get are Minions and Alvin and the Chipmunks, completely forgettable movies made on the cheap to keep children quiet for a few hours...and that is exactly what this looks like!

But there is a flaw in that plan, this is out (in the UK at least) less than 2 weeks before Frozen 2...i know which films most parents will be taking their kids to see :eek:

Now let's add something positive to this thread, as a Sonic fan, and if you haven't found these already they're were a bunch of Sonic animated shorts done for Sonic Mania...and they're bloody fantasic!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LYvO8eaWJNc

All of them were complied into one 11 minute video and it's well worth a watch. There's no dialog but it's all so easy to understand what's happening, i dunno why they didn't just make a 90min film in this style, kids would have LOVED it!

who approved this trailer?

Im getting a real Itchy and Scratchy and Poochie show vibe.
it would be fascinating to go behind the scenes at the board meeting on who approved this lol.

I have mixed feelings about the fix, mainly as it doesn't actually fix anything!

See this film is the directors first film, Paramount handed this to a new director who i'm fairly certain doesn't have the power to completely re-design the films MAIN CHARACTER 6 months before release, hired on the cheap (Jim Carrey isn't as bankable a star as he was, and the rest of the cast sure isn't) and are now shitting themselves people don't like it...but they've known that SINCE THEY RELEASED THE TEASER 6 MONTHS AGO! IN FACT THEY DOUBLED DOWN AND ATTACKED PEOPLE WHO DIDN'T LIKE THE FUCKING DESIGN BACK THEN! Oh but NOW they're listening? Fuck off are they, their PR dept have been doing the rounds since the trailers release and figured people weren't just bashing it, most people were saying they had no interest in seeing it in theatres, they'd just wait for a stream...and they are now in full on damage control because they'll lose so much money.

What makes it worse it they haven't announced a delay or budget increase, why? Because animators in Hollywood routinely get shafted, they'll be expected to completely re-do the films MAIN CHARACTER within 6 months of crunch overtime for no extra...all because Paramount green lit a fucking awful design and overestimated Sonic's brand power. This is the cheapest fix, but it doesn't even begin to address the other problems with the trailer (it looks like a TV special, the writing and script are laughable...and these were the best scenes they could pick for the trailer!)

This film is turning into a fucking car crash in action, Paramount would do well to just sell this to Netflix and be done with it.

I thought the trailer really wasn't that bad. What I would have liked is for the film to take place in a fantasy world instead of Earth itself. How cool would it have looked if they actually visited zones like Casino Night or Metropolis? Who knows, they could, but budget of course comes into play here. Design needed to be fixed and it won't save a shitty screenplay, but at least it will be worked on. I'm down with the change.

I get that, but otoh at this point it's all still on a hard drive somewhere so it should be 'easy' enough to just take the raw footage and swap models. Not like a weekend project but they do still have a couple months.

Otherwise I agree with you: it's going to be tough to do it and someone is going to get shafted in the end.

Even if they fix him and make him look better, they should totally keep this as the original movie poster!

I would actually love if they did 2 versions of the movie, a real version (that looks good) and an edited version with this monstrosity, just so we can all have a LOL fest. Maybe a deleted scene or something for the blu ray.
