Back in May the first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog, a movie based on the SEGA video game character of the same name, was released by Paramount Pictures. The response could not have been worse. The response was so overwhelmingly negative, in fact, that the movie instantly became the internet’s favorite subject for jokes and memes galore. It was a disaster.
The reason for this wildfire of negativity was the design of the title character. It was…poor, to put it nicely. The damage was so great that Paramount was forced to throw away a significant amount of time, effort, and money that had gone into designing and animating the character, and start over in hopes of stopping the bleeding before it was too late.
Now, after deleting the first trailer, poster, and more (though the internet never forgets, of course), Paramount has released another trailer with the newly designed Sonic. You can check it out below.
CBS All Access, CBS’s subscription streaming service, announced on Thursday that Stephen King will write the last part of The Stand, their miniseries adaptation of the author’s 1978 bestselling novel of the same name.

During a presentation on Thursday at the Television Critics Association, per Deadline, CBS All Access EVP Julie McNamara said:

The film will follow a TV actor (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his stunt double (Brad Pitt) embarking on an odyssey to make a name for themselves in the film industry. On this perilous journey, they happen to find themselves being the neighbors of Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie), an actress herself, who will soon become one of the murder victims of Charles Manson and his followers.
