After yesterday's leaked image, we finally get our first look at the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. Oh dear...
Paramount Pictures' adaptation of the much-loved Sonic the Hedgehog video game series has already drawn vast amounts of criticism and that was before a trailer was even released. Well, that has now changed as we've finally got our first glimpse at a teaser trailer for 2019's Sonic the Hedgehog movie, and oh boy.
Released in 1991, the first Sonic the Hedgehog game has become an icon of the video game industry and for many born in the late 80s and early 90s, Sonic was a huge part of their childhood.
Too bad then that this new adaptation of Sonic seems to forget all about the blue hedgehog's humble beginnings and straight-up targets the generation that grew up on The Emoji Movie instead.
Concerns were raised months ago when the first image from 2019's Sonic the Hedgehog surfaced online as it featured a rather slender looking Sonic, a considerable step away from the adorable animated version we've come to know and love.
Matters were not made any better when an image from the trailer, featuring Jim Carrey as Dr 'Eggman' Robotnik, was leaked yesterday, with many fans of the series questioning the villain's appearance.
However, nothing could have prepared Sonic or movie fans for the farcical trailer that has dropped today.
We do finally get a look at the 'proper' appearance of Dr Robotnik but many have already predicted that this shot is setting up for a potential sequel already.
What this trailer shows is that the movie industry still can't get video game adaptations right, no matter how hard it tries.
I think many would agree that calling it a day on video game film adaptations is probably for the best.
