The First Trailer For The Sonic The Hedgehog Movie Just Dropped

Wednesday, 01 May, 2019

The trailer, inexplicably accompanied by Gangsta's Paradise, also gives us our first official look at Jim Carrey's Dr. "Eggman" Robotnik.

The nearly three-minute clip sees the army team up with Dr Robotnik (played by Jim Carrey) to take on Sonic and his friend Tom Wachowski (James Marsden).

Glimpses of Vancouver Island can be seen in the trailer, including what appears to be a chase scene filmed on Highway 19A near Bowser. But with speeds of 760 miles per hour and a producer from the Fast & Furious, I'm suspicious that Sonic is really just out here trying to become part of Dominic Toretto's family. The two characters will apparently be working together to stop Dr. Robotnik's plans for world domination, with Jim Carrey taking on the role of Sonic's age-old nemesis.

The Week also thought Sonic's teeth were off putting. Watch the trailer above.

Perhaps it wouldn't look as creepy if Sonic's design had been more cute and compact, like Detective Pikachu who looks super cuddly in spite of his manly voice.

Sonic The Hedgehog will release in the United States on November 8.

As you'd expect, the trailer is a bit of a cringe-fest, and I'm still trying to wrap my head around why Sonic has white hands. Why?!

Another cried, "It's somehow worse than I can imagine".

Sonic The Hedgehog is the directorial debut from Jeff Fowler.

Based on the iconic video game character, the movie uses CGI to make the character come alive, but some Twitter users can only focus on this dude's mouth.
