Today Paramount Pictures finally lifted the lid of its live action Sonic The Hedgehog movie. The first full trailer shows off Ben Schwartz’s vocal talents in the lead role and features new footage of Jim Carrey and James Marsden in action,
Whilst we admit the design of the character is going to take some getting used to there’s still some charm in the trailer. Does anybody else think Dr. Robotnik looks a bit like a throwback to the Street Fighter movie?
The studio has also released the first poster for the movie:
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG is a live-action adventure comedy based on the global blockbuster videogame franchise from Sega that centers 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.
Sonic the Hedgehog stars Ben Schwartz as Sonic and Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik, with James Marsden, Neal McDonald, Tika Sumpter, Adam Pally and Natasha Rothwell.
The movie is due in cinemas November 8, 2019.
