Sonic the Hedgehog – the movie

Sonic the Hedgehog the Movie is coming out soon.

Yes, you read that right.

Sonic the Hedgehog, the star of the Sega game released in 1991 on Sega’s MegaDrive(Genesis in Japan) has a movie out this year, in 2019. ‘Why?’ I hear you ask… and that was exactly my thoughts too when I first heard about it. But to be honest, now that I’ve seen the trailer, I’m actually screaming ‘No!’.

Sonic the Hedgehog was huge in the 90s, as Sega’s hero to Nintendo’s Mario, it was a case of you’re either Sega or you were Nintendo, Sonic or Mario. I was neither as I had an Amiga 500 and we didn’t have a hero, there was a game called Zool but that’s for a different story…

Anyway, back to the movie…

So this November, see’s Sega and Paramount Pictures release Sonic the Hedgehog the movie starring Jim Carrey as Doctor Robotnik and James Marsden as Sonic’s sidekick and yes, it looks as bad as it sounds…

I can’t see this being a box office success. It’s only really my generation who have any sort of love for Sonic and we’re now all pushing 40… so why would I want to go to the cinema to see a blue furry hedgehog that runs really fast in a movie with Jim Carrey? Oh it’s produced by the same people who brought us The Fast and The Furious apparently… so you know it’s going to be good.

Anyway, here’s the trailer, I’d be interested to know what you think in the comments below.
