Sonic the Hedgehog Movie delayed into February 14, 2020

Are you surprised to hear that the Sonic the Hedgehog movie is being delayed? You shouldn’t, if you have been keeping up the studio announced it was redesigning the blue blur after the negative backlash the debut trailer received. Jeff Fowler posted the above image saying:

“Taking a little more time to make Sonic just right.#novfxartistswereharmedinthemakingofthismovie” – Jeff Fowler va Twitter

One of the biggest backlash from online personalities was the fact that the studio was going to make VFX artist and designers work overtime to fix a design issue that shouldn’t have been approved anyway. I guess his hashtag is telling people that no one was overworked or ‘harmed’ during the making of the movie. Do I believe it? Hard to say but wouldn’t be too shocked when negative stories pour out of the movie. Here is hoping that Paramount Pictures gets it right. I will say that seeing the new art that we posted above from the studio, it does seem that Sonic is now wearing gloves?

What are your thoughts on the the movie being delayed into February 14, 2020.

Sonic the Hedgehog live-action movie to get character design change after internet backlash

Sonic the Hedgehog director Jeff Fowler just tweeted out that he has heard the criticism and that you cant expect a change in Sonic’s character design.

No idea how much of a change we will be seeing, considering that the movie is set to release this upcoming November. Also the fact that this terrible design made it this far into production shows you how clueless Hollywood is sometimes. I guess we will be keeping you posted on all things Sonic Movie news…

Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Official Movie Trailer Debuts, Revealing Robotnik’s Final Form

We have been covering a lot of Sonic the Hedgehog movie news, including having the first reveal of Jim Carrey as Robotnik and revealing that the Sonic Movie trailer would hit the internet today (look above!). We also did a pretty popular SEGA News Bits video going over the leaked plot details (if you don’t mind spoilers!) and now we got the first official look at the movie! If you dislike spoilers, you might want to hold off watching the trailer, because towards the end they reveal Jim Carrey as Robotnik… but his final look that is supposed to be a surprise.

So what do you guys think of the debut trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie? Is it as bad as a lot of people have been predicting? So far the YouTube like/dislike ratio is mixed, leaning towards disliked.

 

Dutch composer Junkie XL to score Sonic the Hedgehog movie

It looks like the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie by Paramount Pictures has landed a pretty big composer, introducing Tom Holkenborg aka Junkie XL who has composed music on films such as Mad Max: Fury Road, Batman v. Superman, Deadpool, Alita: Battle Angel, and a ton more. He confirmed that he was composing on the Sonic the Hedgehog movie in a recent interview with Film Music Magazine. Pretty funny because Junkie XL actually turned down composing Deadpool 2 because director Tim Miller left, if you ddidn’t know Tim Miller is a producer for the Sonic the Hedgehog film and one of the main people behind the project.

I think its crazy that the film is less than a year away and they barely revealed who is working on the soundtrack. We still haven’t seen what the new Sonic the Hedgehog design is going to look like! Its going to be very interesting few months as they continue to promote this movie. So far its not looking great but who knows, in a few months we might be super excited to see the film. Maybe. What are your thoughts on Junkie XL composing the soundtrack for Sonic the Hedgehog (the movie)?

Jim Carrey shows off new haircut for live action Dr. Eggman role


The image above has surfaced via the instagram of MistaSmooth, showing of Jim Carrey’s new haircut. According to Jim Carrey Online fan blog, this new haircut is for the upcoming Paramount “Sonic” movie where Jim Carrey will play a live action Dr. Eggman.

My thoughts? Uh, that isn’t what Dr. Eggman’s hair is suppose to be. Dr. Eggman’s name is a reference to him being overweight and bald. It seems that Jim Carrey is aiming at changing that with a more ‘Joker’ like haircut. What are your thoughts? Maybe they’ll actually call him Doctor Robotnik in this one…

Ben Schwartz to voice Sonic in upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog Paramount movie


It seems that Roger Craig Smith will not be voicing the blue blur in the upcoming Paramount Pictures movie, Variety has reported that the studio has hired Ben Schwartz. The biggest role I recall Ben in has been he’s role in Parks and Recreation. But he has also done some really good voice over work, recently landing the role of Dewey in the DuckTales animated show and plays Leo in the upcoming Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show.

Sonic the Hedgehog movie is set to debut in November 15, 2019. What are your thoughts on Paramount Pictures changing up the iconic Sonic the Hedgehog voice cast for new actors? Do you think Ben Schwartz can deliver a good performance as Sonic the Hedgehog?

Jim Carrey will play villain ‘Robotnik’ in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie

According to Deadline exclusive sources, Jim Carrey has now negotiated with Paramount Pictures to star in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog CGI/Live Action movie. Jim Carrey is set to join James Marsden and Tika Sumpter in the Jeff Fowler directed movie later in 2019. As for me using ‘Robotnik’ in the title, its sorta mocking Deadline for using it then later in the article uses Dr. Eggman. According to everything I have read from sources, they will be using Dr. Eggman as a name in the movie. But what would you prefer?

Jim Carrey has sort of been off the movie radar as of late, with his last couple of movies coming in 2016 with The Bad Batch and Dark Crimes. Both films being smaller, indie affairs. It will seem that if this whole deal is true, Jim Carrey will return to mainstream film making via the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie. Personally don’t see the point of using Jim Carrey, but you know how movie studios are with big name celebrities joining these sort of projects.

X-Men Actor, James Marsden, to star in Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog Movie

Variety has confirmed that actor, James Marsden, known for his acting roles in movies such as the X-Men film series and Westworld, will star in Paramount’s upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie directed by Jeff Fowler. Neal H. Moritz, who recently signed a first-look deal with Paramount, is producing under his Original Film banner. “Deadpool” director Tim Miller will serve as executive producer, along with Toby Ascher. Dmitri Johnson and Dan Jevons will co-produce. Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog movie is set to begin production this July in Vancouver, Canada and set to be released to the big screen next year on November 15, 2019.

How do you guys feel about James Marsden starring in the Sonic the Hedgehog movie instead of Paul Rudd? Feel free to post your thoughts on the comments below.

SEGA releases Sonic the Hedgehog movie press release

sonicunleashedcutscene

I know all the Sonic the Hedgehog fans around the world are wondering what the ‘live-action CG animation’ Sonic the Hedgehog film brings to theaters. We already know that SEGA is teasing a November 15, 2019 release date since we covered it.

Now SEGA has sent out the official press release about the upcoming movie, having quotes from people involved including SEGA Holdings CEO Haruki Satomi, Paramount Pictures CEO Jim Gianopulos and Producer Neal H. Moritz.

Sonic the Hedgehog movie racing into theaters fall of 2019

2345109-reviewsoniclostworld20131017jpg-e9740d_1280w

It seems that every year we get a announcement that the Sonic the Hedgehog movie is coming, next year. Guess what? Paramount Films has slated the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie for November 15, 2019.

As we already know Neal H. Moritz (Fast & Furious series) will be producing the project, along with Tim Miller (Deadpool) and Toby Ascher (Green Hornet) as executive producers. Dmitri M. Johnson (Little Nightmares, Life is Strange) and Dan Jevons will be co-producers. So this movie is really gonna be… you know, produced.

If you missed the news before the movie is still set to be a mix of live action and CGI animation. As you can see we don’t really have much news on the Sonic the Hedgehog movie outside the fact that it got a release date. We still don’t have a cast either. Personally don’t think this movie will make its November 15, 2019 release date, but we’ll see. Maybe we’ll get more news on the movie at this year’s SXSW?

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ movie moves on to Paramount Pictures

Sonic_Generations_GCI_Slide

If you didn’t know about the Sonic the Hedgehog movie that has been in the works for a couple of years now, basically it started life over at Sony Entertainment. It is now revealed that the IP will be heading to Paramount Pictures as Sony has dropped the project. Neal H. Moritz and his company have signed a ‘first look deal’ with Paramount. They will be producing the project.

While the project is shifting publishing houses, it seems most of the staff from Sony Entertainment will be staying. This includes Deadpool director Tim Miller as executive producer, Blur Studio collaborator Jeff Fowler will make his directorial debut, Toby Ascher is executive producing, Dmitri Johnson, and Dan Jevons will be co-producers. Sadly the movie is still aiming at being a blend of CGI and live action, which honestly sounds terrible.

Now its making me wonder if we will ever see a Sonic the Hedgehog movie and if we do if it will be any good. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below!
