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.
The highly anticipated Alien: Isolation is set to be released on October 7th, and if you’ve missed all of the intense looks at the game we’ve seen so far you can head right here to check them out.
A new video for the game has been released showing off the Survivor Mode, which will let players attempt certain things with various objectives/options, log a score, and then see how they stack up against other players.
You can find out how Survivor Mode came to exist and find out more about it in the video below.
A few days ago, it was revealed that those who pre-order the upcoming video game Alien: Isolation would receive special pre-order bonus missions involving the likenesses and voices of most of the cast of the 1979 classic movie that heavily inspired the game, Ridley Scott’s Alien, including Sigourney Weaver as Ripley.
While the thought of playing a very promising looking game as these iconic characters is extremely exciting, the general consensus on the announcement has been—and is almost every time similarly awesome exclusive pre-order bonuses are announced—that it’s not cool to force people to pay for the game in advance just to gain access to content.
But, as is usually the case, it was assumed that the two Alien bonus missions would still be made available to everyone at some point, and this has been confirmed in a statement released by SEGA. You can read the statement and watch your favorite Alien characters in video game form in the newly released trailer below.
There’s more than enough happening in the world of video games this week, but there’s also some video game movie news to be had as well.
It’s being reported that a movie based on the hit SEGA franchise, Sonic the Hedgehog, is being developed by producer Neal Moritz for Sony and Japan’s Marza Animation Planet. Moritz is known for producing titles like the 21 Jump Street reboot and its sequel, 22 Jump Street, the Fast and the Furious franchise, and many more.
