Sonic the Hedgehog movie gets first trailer


The first trailer for the live-action/animated Sonic the Hedgehog movie is here. It features freeze time, Jim Carrey mugging it up, an ironic/iconic catchphrase, Coolio, pedometers, console name puns, and Jim Carrey mugging it up.


Sonic The Hedgehog is a live-action adventure comedy based on the global blockbuster videogame franchise from Sega that centres 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.

The idea of a Sonic the Hedgehog film had been floating around for a number of years. In 2013, internet sleuths spotted a number of domain name registrations by Sony Pictures that hinted at the possibility. The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the story a year later, adding that the film would be a live-action/animated hybrid. SEGA and Sony Pictures officially announced the movie in 2016, but the latter exited the project in October 2017.

Paramount Pictures later picked up the film and put it into production last year. The movie is directed by Jeff Fowler and written by Golan The Insatiable’s Patrick Casey, Josh Miller and 22 Jump Street’s Oren Uziel.

Sonic The Hedgehog opens in theatres across the United States on November 8, 2019. To celebrate the film’s release, Paramount released a new poster:

Since debuting in 1991, the Sonic The Hedgehog video game series has moved over 800 million units across packaged and downloadable software. The franchise has grossed well over $5 billion in retail sales.
