    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

    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!



    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!

    Yes! Instead of doubling down and attacking the fans (Star Wars, Ghostbusters, ect) Paramount is actually listening! Nice!!

    There are so many reasons why that doesn't begin to fix things

    what the fuck is Coolio's 1995 hit Gangster's Paradise doing in Sonic the Hedgehog? i remember when it was in Dangerous Minds it made more sense ,how do the two come together?? why now in 2019? is Sonic a gangster?
    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.

    Hahahaha.... I found it originally at this article: https://heroichollywood.com/sonic-he...ious-redesign/

    But I have since poked around the internet a little more, and it seems to be a fan redesign for the lolz. (at least we can hope)

    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.
