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.
Though video game film adaptations have garnered very mixed to horrible results, the craze isn’t ending anytime soon. Paramount has released the first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog, a CGI-animation and live-action hybrid that sees the title character, who is animated, interacting in the real world.
Now we get to see why Sonic (voice of Ben Schwartz) is here and how he will protect this world from the likes of Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey). Check out the trailer and a new poster below.
Now comes word that Miller has quickly found something new to work on. It’s being reported that Sony has hired Miller to develop the live-action/CGI hybrid movie adaptation of the hit video game franchise Sonic the Hedgehog. We first heard about the project when it was announced back in 2014.
It’s just as the title says, David Fincher needs your help to get the necessary finances to jumpstart a long-gestating adaptation of the hilarious comic book The Goon (see our recent review of The Goon #42). The sole concept trailer has shown that the project has a lot of potential, mixing action, comedy, horror, and animation into one film. But the film adaptation of The Goon is barely treading water, and as it tries to keep itself alive, Fincher is asking for your help. The filmmaker has launched a Kickstarter project as a way to reach out to the masses in hopes that they can help finance a story reel.
Fincher has even teamed up with the people over at Blur Studios to create a small video that reaches out to all demographics. Hit the jump to see how you can donate and to watch the video as well.
