Sonic, my guy, what did they do to you? This morning, Paramount Pictures released the first trailer for the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog film and as a long time Sonic the Hedgehog fan, I can’t say that I’m the least bit impressed. From the second that Coolio’s Gangsta’s Paradise starts playing, this trailer manages to showcase absolutely none of what made Sonic the Hedgehog a cult favorite from his Sega Master System debut.
This trailer alone has poor special effects, poor music selection, and extremely strange comedy making it an eyesore to both casual and hardcore Sonic the Hedgehog fans. While I usually love Jim Carrey’s acting, seeing Jim Carrey as Doctor Robotnik didn’t particular peak my interest and didn’t My only hope is that Tails, Knuckles and the rest of the gang are left out of the butchering. Press play above to see exactly why I’m not excited about this new Sonic the Hedgehog movie. At least Detective Pikachu doesn’t look bad at all.
