Do you have news, reviews or comments for 'Sonic The Hedgehog'?
The little blue speedy hedgehog that was once the flagship character for Sega is getting his own movie this year and the BBFC have given it a PG age rating.
The film hit controversy last year when the first trailer was released due to the look of the Sonic character, but the director went back into the edit room and redesigned him.
The new look got a much better reception when the trailer was released and fans seem to be looking forward to the movie.
The film stars Jim Carrey as Doctor Robotnix and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic, it is directed by Jeff Fowler.
The film has been given a PG rating by the BBFC for mild violence, threat, rude humour and it has a runtime of 98 minutes (1 hour and 38 minutes), the film was passed uncut.
The release date is 14th February 2020.
Paramount Pictures have released the first trailer for Sonic The Hedgehog which reveals the redesigned Sonic after the fan backlash of the original look and feel.
After the original trailer for 202's Sonic The Hedgehog film there was a sizeable amount of backlash from fans about the artistic design for the title character, so much so that the director Jeff Fowler publicly apologised and said he'd do a redesign.
Paramount have not released a new trailer with a character reveal, and on the whole it is being received a lot better.
Outside the controversy the film stars Jim Carey as Doctor Robotnik and is set for release Valentines Day 2020.
The trailer is good but concentrates more of Sonic and his look and speed and little on the actual film, so we'll have to wait for the next trailer for more story.
There is also a new poster worth checking out which at least features Jim Carey in a very overpowering pose.
Ever since the first teaser poster for the new Sonic The Hedgehog film was released there has been a lot of anticipation for how the blue speedy mammal will look, and today fans fears were realised.
Today we get the first trailer for the film and Sonic simply does not look like the classic Sega hero from the '90's games that we were expecting, in fact we don't know what he looks like!
The good news is we also get to see Jim Carey as Dr. Ivo Robotnik and although he's not big and round does bring a level of the character to the screen.
Artistic licence does need to be used when bringing a video game character to the screen but we do feel the film makers have not understood the source material, we keep thinking Super Mario Bros. when we watch this.
