Ben Schwartz says he hasn’t been asked by SEGA to voice Sonic in other media

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/sonicbenvoicegame-750x422.png)

Quote
Do you guys think that Ben Schwartz is playing it cute and knows he is voicing Sonic but since SEGA hasn’t officially announced it he is pretending not knowing?
Also consider this interview isn’t to promote a upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie but to promote the Disney+ movie ‘Flora & Ulysses’ that he is in.

Industry Insiders Explain Why Video Game Movies Are Getting Better And More Popular

(https://i.ibb.co/xzJQ5wx/Video-Game-Movie-Heroes.jpg)

Quote
Dmitri Johnson, who co-produced Sonic under his company dj2 Entertainment, was involved in the movie's on-again-off-again production since 2012.
He said that "everyone thought it was a joke," during the early phases of production, but that attitudes changed following the film's highly successful release.
"Shortly after that, the incoming calls definitely increased from studios [and] networks saying, 'Hey, whaddya got next?'"

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Movie News: Knuckles, GUN and Robotnik Revealed!

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/EzdA3IqX0Awc_lo-750x500.jpg)

Quote
Doctor Robotnik was also spotted, though it is unknown if this is Jim Carrey or a stunt double.
Robotnik is sporting his bald head and big mustache from the end of the first film as well as a black trench coat with popped collar.
The scene appears to see Robotnik airlifting himself away, likely using one of his robots.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie plot synopsis released

Quote
The movie very much appears to use elements of the third Sonic game and its add-on Sonic & Knuckles, while also featuring the debut of Tails who appeared only in a post-credits scene in the original film.
Also worth noting, Tom and Maddie leaving on a vacation is likely to see them off screen for much of the film, a common trope in sequels when they want to shift focus to other characters.

5 Ingredients for a Great Crazy Taxi Movie

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/ctmovie.jpg)

Quote
I believe that a successful Crazy Taxi movie would rely mostly on practical stunt work.
What fun is it to see a car fly thirty feet through the air if you know it’s not real?
I recall turning off the Speed Racer movie halfway through due to visual effects boredom.

I didn't know about this thread. Glad you made it. Though only had my What If? SCU thread to go by.

Also, might want to include "The House of the Dead (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3674992/?ref_=fn_al_tt_3)" under "Planned but never materialized and Rumors :", but may wanna mention it's a seperate, pending project from Uwe Bolls hot mess.

I was gonna add it but ... Wait a minute.
I read the IMDB page and the story went :
"The Film's Original Plot will be A Prequel to The House of the Dead (1996) Video Game"
and also
"Jonathan Cherry as Rudy Curien".

Isn't this basically Uwe Bolls' "The House of the Dead" movie?

>Canceled The House of the Dead movie.
That's a pity. I myself have ideas for how a House of the Dead movie could work... which I discussed about over here on the Website of the Dead (http://segabits.com/forums/index.php?topic=4408.0).

I would love to go into directing and shooting Sega fan movies, but I got nothing to work with. No choice actors, no film equipment, no budget.... I could probably hire zombies (http://www.events2scare.com/zombie-hire.html) though but I dunno how expensive that'll be.

That was supposed to be an animated movie if I remembered correctly, not Live Action movie.
Not sure it's 3D or 2D.
Other series were planned too (all are animated movies), but they were never materialized:

Super Monkey Ball : https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4248318/
Phantasy Star : https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4248154/

Why are these IMDb articles even here is they don't clearly say they're canceled or not? It's a really big tease on my hopes for a Sega Cinematic Universe.

I don't know if you want to add these or not given they're not made or licenced by Sega at all, but here are a few live-action Sega fanfilms that I know of.

I know there are other live-action Sonic videos out there but I chose ones that I figured were more significant and of interest. There were few more videos I really wanted to add to the list but I couldn't find them on YouTube. They were either taken down or lost in YouTubes search algorithm.

Now you're probably asking, why not fan films based on other Sega games? Well, I can't really find any other. There's no "House of the Dead" fan films but dozens of Resident Evil fan films, no Shinobi fan films but dozens of Ninja Gaiden fan films. While there is a few Streets of Rage fan films there are much more Street Fighter fan films. Popular games just get the more popular and funded projects.

Still given there are only a few live-action Sega movies out there (Well, just the two, Sonic and Like A Dragon) there are these fan films to enjoy. Not as plenty or as high budget as Nintendo or Capcoms fanfilms but better than nothing.

Okay, while it can be conveniant for hotlinking links to YouTube to present an embedded video but it can be annoying at times. Is there a way to disable it on specific posts to make more tidy lists?

Wow, Nice. I haven't seen many of these.
Only some of Streets of Rage and Sonic, I think.

Lol... I have those problem too about youtube links : http://segabits.com/forums/index.php?topic=3892.msg95949#msg95949
I don't know how to make them not automatically embedded video.
Or may be I just directed it to your post.. But I won't be able to add anything then.

Do make bit ly links for those youtube links could solve the issues?

Never have tried before though.

I dunno what bit ly is, but I'll try something else...
Test (http://y2u.be/JtCtQpclpY8)

EDIT Yep, that'll work. I've edited my previous posts. It's so much more neater now.

What I did was use http://y2u.be/code as an alternate like to these YouTube videos links. y2u.be is basically used to make any YouTube link addresses smaller for conveniances. And given the forums code don't recognise it as a YouTube link means it treats it as a traditional one.

Now that that's been sorted, my list of fan videos now look propper and we can return on topic.

Sweet. Put them on the first page.

This y2u be links are really practical.
Google search links would be a headache since it contain many characters, and there are limit of characters we can put in one post.

It's all good then. If I find anymore Sega related fan-videos I'll post them. I know they're not "official" but with Sonic's movie, Like a Dragon movies and a movie franchise confiscated from Uwe Boll we got slim pickings here.
If you could make a live-action fan film, what would it be about? Before the first Sonic movie came out, I did had my own ideas for a Live-action Sonic fan film (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/User_blog:Mystic_Monkey/If_I_made_a_Sonic_movie). Even my own designs in mind for how Sonic would look... though probably not as good as how he was in his movie.

I've read it and it's kinda interesting to bring Madonna back.
I know Archie Comics brought Madonna back too as agent of GUN, but she only showed up in one issue.

I had a talk with my brother who knows more on filmmaking than I do and he convinced me that if I can't make full fledge fan movies due to my limits, I should aspire to at least make "teasers" for those fanfilms in mind.

Will take some time to put together though. What I have in mind for The House of the Dead teaser would be more possible than what I have in mind for Virtua Cop.

Yes but unlike that trailer that recycles footage from Seventh Son, I would like to film the footage for myself. That way if people like the teaser then perhaps more support for more fuller projects.

Or the very least start a hashtag Sega Cinematic Universe trend.

The announcement was made on Wednesday, Sept. 29, with the image of Carrey and Majdoub shown in a cup of coffee for National Coffee Day.
Majdoub retweeted the post and later confirmed that he is returning for “Sonic The Hedgehog 2.”
And that image in the coffee hints that Dr. Robotnik will need him again as his sidekick should bring in tons of laughter once more like the first installment.

Added Company of Heroes (2013)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCiSWQjYwCE (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCiSWQjYwCE)

Company of Heroes is a 2013 American direct-to-video war thriller film directed by Don Michael Paul.
The screenplay was co-written by Danny Bilson and Paul De Meo, best known for The Rocketeer, as well as several video games (James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing, Medal of Honor: Rising Sun).
It was loosely based on the video game of the same name from Relic (to which DeMeo would later write the sequel, Company of Heroes 2).

(http://www.imfdb.org/images/a/a8/CoH2_poster.jpg)

Since Relic is now a part of Sega Europe, then Company of Heroes is a part of SEGA franchises too.

(https://i.pinimg.com/originals/11/20/56/112056937bdfc53aa4ebdc1d09db8e9c.jpg)

I'm not putting in the list because it's a full CGI movie, not live action movie.

But what if this game was a live action game?
The game's based on the Ultramarines Chapter of the Space Marines (https://store.steampowered.com/sub/116764/), which SEGA owned.
But Warhammer 40,000 franchise belongs to Games Workshop.
They're connected, but not fully owned by SEGA.
Should it be in the list if it's a live action movie? Or not?

Eeeeeh, I think they should be on the list but under a seperate catagory that covers movies based on franchises that Sega owned than movies that Sega personally developed.

It be like if Sega brought the rights to Aliens... which they sort of did in a way. Does that mean the Alien movies should be on the list? Sega has nothing to do with the development of those movies even if they own a piece of the franchise... I think. They made Isolation, Vs Predator and Colonial Marines but I dunno if they have the same deal with 20th Century Fox as they do with Game Factory over these franchises.
As for Warhammer fan films... Well, I'm not that into the franchise so I don't really want to comb them out to add to my list. I'm sure there is live action fan films, I just dunno which ones are fan films specifically based on Sega's Warhammer or not.

If the TV series specifically has Sega in the credits then yeah, I'd say that get's in. But then again if it's like at the botton of the credits with little relation of the TV series then maybe not.

The Sonic movie sequel were among the many films previewed by Paramount at the 30th running of CineEurope, an official convention by the International Union of Cinemas.
It showcased a number of short unidentified scenes from the film, and it was highlighted by an attendee that the sequel’s humour and action will be both about “the same level” as in the first film.

It is not known when or if the preview is going be publicly showcased, but usually they're not for public.
For public, they'll release a trailer instead.

Yakuza movie will only move forward if the game’s creator approves the script

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Yakuza6KiryuHaruto.jpg)

Quote
Toshihiro Nagoshi revealed the Yakuza movie was approved under the one condition that the project will only move forward with his approval.
“We had an offer from the West, and a Yakuza movie is now underway in Hollywood,” said Nagoshi. “In a case like this, usually you have the side that wants to (license the IP) and the side that owns the IP, and a deal tends to be done as business.
But in this case, I made it clear from the beginning that if the content itself was no good and I didn’t agree with it, then I would not want to do it, and I’ve been very upfront about it.”

Idris Elba Promises Not to Make Knuckles ‘Sexy’ in ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 2’

Given the actor’s low voice, fans actually had concerns over Knuckles coming off as ‘sexy’ in the sequel.
While The Suicide Squad actor could not reveal many details about the Sonic 2 movie, he assured fans of one important detail.
He said that Knuckles would not be ‘sexy.’

YouTube Making All Dislikes Private to Prevent Harassment

As stated on the YouTube blog, Google are striving for YouTube “to be a place where creators of all sizes and backgrounds can find and share their voice.”
In order for YouTube to promote “respectful interactions between viewers and creators” features were introduced, along with experiments earlier this year with the dislike button to prevent “dislike attacks” against creators

"Dislike attacks", you mean honest critism? If the dislike button and it's counters are truely removed from all YouTube videos, then by that logic YouTube Rewind 2018 (http://y2u.be/YbJOTdZBX1g), would not be the most disliked videos on YouTube since it has 3mil likes. Yes there will probably be hate in the comments, but who reads them? Video has 3mil likes so it must be good.

Seriously removing the dislikes from YouTube sounds like rewarding everyone for participation than whenever or not they're actually good. Only instead this equality is more for encouraging a profit than quality of videos.

This is a bad decision indeed.
Sometimes the huge amount of dislikes prevent us from scam, false news, and hoax videos.
For example : All those of flat earth videos that got many likes and dislikes.
Even those dislikes ratio helped us to get the message done about that early awful Sonic design for the Sonic movie.

The official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter account Tweeted at Geoff Keighley, asking whether the host has "any extra invites."
Keighley cheekily pointed out that Sonic doesn't even follow him on Twitter, but apparently that didn't stop him from hooking up the blue blur with an invitation to the show.

Idris Elba had a lot of questions about Knuckles’ motivations in Sonic 2
The Suicide Squad actor is taking this seriously, says director Jeff Fowler

Quote
“You’ve got Sonic’s speed, you’ve got Knuckles’ super strength, and we just put them in an environment and let them go at it,” Fowler says.
“It’s like a little Captain America and Iron Man;
it just offers so much opportunity in terms of fight choreography and action.”

Having trouble signing in with Facebook there, but my take for their relationship is Admiration.
Reminds me of Starline in IDWComic.
I think they're kinda the same on their admiration of Eggman.
Stone could be Starline of the movie,
become the next bad guy after Robotnik.

Really? I mean, Starline still admires Dr. Robotnik tenacity but even he has had enough of his crud to rebel against him. Agent Stone doesn't seem to have the scientific know-how  for such pursuits and he reminds me more of a loyal puppy. Even with Dr. Robotnik talking crud to him he blindly admires and follows. It's kinda like the making of a toxic relationship.

Once your blind admiration hit a certain point,
it will turn into ... something else.
Love, hate, betrayal, anger, desperation, or imitation.

It's why one of my ideas for a Sega Cinematic Universe is have Agent Stone find his own business in manufacturing cutting-edge technology from Dr. Robotnik's left over tech... But him as a barrista is also nice.

Saturn's Diamond Dust is made by Richard Jacques, right?
I think now the departement who in charged in Youtube videos tend to avoid using his song,
in order not to anger him again like he did with Tee Lopes (https://www.reddit.com/r/SonicTheHedgehog/comments/dtowfj/richard_jacques_now_deleted_response_to_tee_lopes/).

Themes from Sonic 2 (and Sonic 1) aren't belong to SEGA.
They're belong to Dreams Come True and they'll need someone in Japan at least to contact them from royalties and such and it'll take time (and more budget).
I think they just want the easy way.

Remember when Sonic the Hedgehog’s official twitter account made a video meme of 'You cheated not only the game, but yourself'?
They didn't use song from Marble Zone for that video eventough the stage was Marble Zone.

So did Sega commission DCT at the time when they made Sonic 1 or did Sonic Team compose the music and the rights ended up with DCT. Because I don't see why DCT can't share rights with Sonic Team given it's the games that made the songs so popular.

There was no what we called now "Sonic Team" back then,
even Naoto and Naka couldn't get their names on the game.
Mega Drive wasn't that big in Japan so they decided they need a band to promote Sonic and the band is DCT.
Sonic was revealed for the first time by being painted on the side of DCT's tour bus.
And turned out not just promote, but also to make songs for Sonic 1.

Since This Judgment TV series is made by Japan while the upcoming Yakuza movie would be made by western and Sonic 1-2 made by western but from different production house, it's hard to connect or use cameos from each others.

I think people hearing voices in their head is more common problem than it appears and shouldn't be joked about in cartoons.
But regardless I liked Jim Carrey's performance in the first movie. Not too Riddler, not too Cable Guy. I don't want him to end up too over-the-top like Mask or Ace Ventura.

Still we don't know how long he'll appear in the 2nd movie.

My guess he was mimicing the Death Egg Robot from Sonic 2.

Ahh.. right... I didn't think that far. Now it make sense. In his mind, he's already planning to make Death Egg Robo.

10 Characters That Everyone Thinks Are Crazy But Ended Up Being Right All Along

Quote
Crazy Carl knows the existence of Sonic, but everyone laughs at him when he tries to explain himself.
And because he doesn't know much about the alien, Carl simply refers to him as "the Blue Devil."
That's a fairly accurate nickname, as Sonic can run faster than the speed of light and is always up to mischief.

In Robotnik, Carrey has clearly found another character that is not only fun to play but is also personally relatable

Quote
Carrey explained that he is attracted to the role because Eggman is a "genius combined with neglect and a sense of absolute worthlessness."
The actor enjoys that, while the character does allow him to use the same "childlike discovery energy" seen in his earlier films, Dr. Robotnik has a sense of depth and sadness that Carrey can sink his teeth into.
In the same interview, Carrey revealed that he improvised lines about Robotnik's past and status as an orphan.

Going by my "characters are the Chaos Emeralds" theory, that Dr. Eggman has the power of the white Chaos Emerald.

Anything is possible until the movie's released.

Going by my "characters are the Chaos Emeralds" theory, that Dr. Eggman has the power of the white Chaos Emerald.

Considering that Sonic vs Knuckles woud be like another superhero VS crossover (Batman v Superman, Godzilla vs Kong, etc), when after they fought they will team up to fight another baddie (Robotnik in this case), it would be very possible that Robotnik has enough power to fight them both.

I dunno, I mean I get you, can't take a single location as an example of a whole planet. But either you're right or Dr. Robotnik did eventually found a way to travel via rings and took a detour before rturning to Earth. I'm imagining he ended up on a planet like Cybertron.

True, Dr. Robotnik would account on Knuckles betraying him and having two super powered pests to worry about.

But my theory is that in the movie the "Chaos Emeralds" are actually imbodiment of various characters.
Sonic's blue electrical speed = Blue emerald
Tails' yellow aura and speed when flying = Yellow emerald
Knuckles' firey aura when fighting = Red emerald
Dr. Eggman able to use his finger as a blow torch due to some colourless energy = White emerald

I wonder if you can explain to me something that confuses me a little.

What exactly is the relation between Sega and Paramount when it comes to making Sonic movies?

Is it like video game consoles where Sega makes the games entirely and Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo agree to put their games out there through their consoles? As in Sega has the studio to make their movies and Paramount puts them in the cinema.

Or is it like Archie and IDW comics where Sega commissions the publishers to make comics on their behalf, allows them creative use of their characters and content under agreements and only limits them by mandates? As in Paramount made the movies in their studio and Sega approves of them.

For the first movie it's the kinda later, many studios were hired by Paramount but still one of them was SEGA's studio (Marza Animation Planet), who's helping to provide the visual effects.
Why Paramount didn't use their own studios? Because all of studio was already pick by Sony but Sony then dropped the ball and Paramount's willing to take over the project and they still want most of the team unchanged.
All the decision is on Paramount though, SEGA is just some kind of a consultant.
That's why we almost have that horrible design of Sonic, even though SEGA advised them to change (before the first trailer show up) but rejected.
Mandates aren't as strict as IDW Comics since IDW Comics is continuation of the game while movie is separate universe.
Still not much information for the second and third movie, the relation could be changed after that but I doubt it.

The Sonic 2 Movie Poster Is Missing Some Names

Quote
Thankfully, Sonic fans aren’t exactly being silent over this.
On Twitter, many are voicing their displeasure over O’Shaughnessey’s omission.
Something similar occurred with Marvel’s Avengers Endgame, when actress Danai Gurira wasn’t credited on that movie’s poster despite being on it.
Fan outcry eventually led to her name being added.

My guess is Paramount be the one to propose it to SEGA.
They could ask which franchise they could use and sign contract with SEGA for those franchises.
Yakuza is out from those though.

It could still happen though.
If the second & third movie and Knuckles TV series are succesful enough, someone on Paramount might want it expand more...
True but they might just expand with just Sonic characters. I don't oppose this at all given there is probably enough Sonic characters for their own Avengers movies. Ijust think it would be good to have a variety with other Sega movies. Especially if these movies are callbacks to 80s and 90s cinema. For example if we ever had a GoldenAxe movie Id rather it be like Conan the Barbarian (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conan_the_Barbarian_(1982_film)) instead of... well, Conan the Barbarian (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conan_the_Barbarian_(2011_film)).
Cobra Kai (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cobra_Kai) is an example of what I'm on about using era-based cinematography... sorta. They used some sort of brown tint filter to make it look as old as the Karate Kid movies, but you can tell which clips are from the original movies or not. I dunno, I guess modern camera's can only look old so much in a HD age. I'm just saying if Paramount ever made a Conan the Barbarian movie they could still base it on Wachowski's world just don't see why they can't recreate Duke Callaghan's work.

Because may be recreating isn't always a good thing.
Sometimes it's worked, sometimes it's not.
When Bryan Singer take a mantle on Superman, I kinda excited since his first two X-Men movies were so good.
But instead of making something new, Singer's trying to recreate Christopher Reeve's Superman.
And the result (Superman Returns) was disappointing.
The movie's such a bore I kinda regret watching it in cinema.

I see. Well what I liked about 1982 Conan is that while it had action, violence and blood, it felt more emphasis on the journey and the story along the way, as well as how it was paced.
The 2011 felt more like the emphasis on action, violence and blood. As in they figured that's what we're here to watch. And to be honest I was grossed out at the scene with the severed nose. The story was a bit confusing because the pace of it was forward and honestly can't remember most of it.

Ever seen the movie Wolfhound (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolfhound_(2006_film))? Some have complimented it as a movie that takes the best elements of 1982 Conan the Barbarian and Lord of the Rings. So perhaps a modern movie like that is what GoldenAxe should strive for.

Yes. Wolfhound is good. When we play Golden Axe, it does feel like of Hollywood cult classics like Conan The Barbarian, Red Sonja, and The Beastmaster so Wolfhound-like is definitely a fit.

From the creator (https://www.retrogamer.net/retro_games80/the-making-of-golden-axe/) :

My father loved action movies and I used to watch them with him,” Uchida tells us. “During the development of Golden Axe, I rented a video of Conan and watched until the tape was worn… Of course I was also inspired by Lord Of The Rings. I bought many illustration works based on Middle-Earth and used them as reference materials. If I could, I would vote Gandalf for president!”

The thing is Hollywood is known to ruin game adaptation. We could instead get the "Beast Rider" version for the movie, not the classic one.

Makota Uchida claims Hollywood is known to ruin game adaptions, but he might have had a change of heart after Sonic's movie. He would just need to choose the right director to keep his vision towards the movies he grew up with and not make it too Hollywoodish. Maybe get John Millus (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Milius) to co-direct it, though I don't think he is in good health these days.

It'll be awesome if it's happened.
But it's not the game maker or franchise owner who get to say who will be the director..
It's the movie publisher.

The offensive drew widespread condemnation from the international community. Paramount’s competitors, Walt Disney, Warner Bros. and Sony Pictures all announced plans earlier this week to pause theatrical distribution in Russia.
Paramount gave no word about a new release window, though the company said they will continue to “monitor the situation.”

True, video game movie adaptions has had a bad history. That's because video games are suppose to be interactive and have stories catered around that interactivity, given movies replace that interactivity with Hollywood fluff is why they bomb.

But in recent years we've had video game adaptions of movies that were actually good, such as Rampage, Tomb Raider, Uncharted, Detective Pikachu, Mortal Kombat which was... eeeheh and no, Uwe Boll movies don't count, he makes them bad on purpose to exploit some German movie buisness loop-hole.

Point I'm getting is, yes, video game movies have had a horrible reputation, but there are still giid movie adaptions out there which prooves it's a matter of how you take the source material and what you do with it and how to do it right.

For example, me going on about a Golden Axe movie should be like the 1982 film Conan the Barbarian or 2016 Russian film Wolfhound. Golden Axe provides the names and settings, it just needs to be paced as Sonic's movie was.

I will admit, I do have a few guilty pleasures from some "bad" video game movies. For example Super Mario fans hate Mario's old movie for how lacking it is to the source material. I like Super Mario Bros. movie for Dinohatten and it's entirely original concepts.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggiTroAVuDw
I also like the old Street Fighter movie. It's like the actors know that no matter what this movie will not be taken as seriously as other movies so instead of being half-assed about it it's like they still have fun with the roles they're given and put energy into it. Raul Julia also gave it his all. His children encouraged him to accept the role and given he was dying of stomach cancer he gave one of the most convincing roles for a video game movie villain.

I agree. If the movie was called "Dinohatten" and they kept their clothes throughout the movie than the need to change them, I'd say the movie would of been iconic on it's own merits.

It was a great movie. Guile was a hammy American soldier hero which made Van Damme perfect for the role, Andrew Brynlarski was suppose to be strong and dumb but instead he delivered his foolishness through clever humour that made him both dimwitted yet sharp-witted and Raul Julia gave it his all for the role of M. Bison. It's like they knew this movie was going to bomb so instead of being half-arsed in the role they thoroughly enjoyed themselves with it, as if they were more relaxed with the roles than being entirely professional and in doing so it brought out their best.

But it's not gaining new fans either with the lack of new games.
Not even remastered or remake.
No 3D Classic Golden Axe on 3DS, no SEGA Ages Golden on Switch.

Thing is, it won't be all that hard for Golden Axe to get a reboot or at least a direct sequel to the classic games if Sega just makes a bronze-era sword and sorcery game and just stick the Golden Axe name to it.

I myself have a few ideas for Golden Axe games:
I myself had an idea for a Golden Axe fan game simply called "GoldEdge". It's more of a sequel and fanadaption of Golden Axe Warrior (https://goldenaxe.fandom.com/wiki/Golden_Axe_Warrior). Like option 2, it's an open-world action-adventure game. You play as a modern youth who breaks into an abandoned Sega arcade only to their surprise to find an old Golden Axe arcade machine still working, with a peculiar gold token on it's dash board. When putting the token in to play they're magically transported into the heart of some dungeon. There they find a mysterious golden sword and after taking it able to fight their way out of the dungeon only to realised they've been isekei's to another world.

The story in mind is along time a go the Golden Axe was broken into nine fragments, and each fragment was melted down and added to the creation of nine new weapons known as the Gold Edge weapons. Your quest is to various dungeons and retrieve these Gold Edge weapons in order to restore the axe and literally cleave your way back to your home world.

I myself have a few ideas for Golden Axe games:
  • A Warriors (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynasty_Warriors) collab. Just like Hyrule Warriors (https://zelda.fandom.com/wiki/Hyrule_Warriors). It would make great use of the hack 'n slash format of the Warrior games.
  • Open-world, action-adventure hack 'n slash game like Brütal Legend (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Br%C3%BCtal_Legend) or Zelda: Breath of the Wild (https://zelda.fandom.com/wiki/The_Legend_of_Zelda:_Breath_of_the_Wild). Give players basic directives and let them explore Yuria and forge their own quests.
  • A knock-off of Conan Exiles (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conan_Exiles). Or any of his games (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_games_based_on_Conan_the_Barbarian) after 2000. They obviously have the formula down, Sega (or whoever third-party Sega can get to do their work for) can just pick concepts and elements from these games and take their own spin on it.[/l][/l][/l][/l]
If Golden Axe was ressurected, I want it's more like Elden Ring. But with less serious theme. Put some funny things on it too, like original Golden Axe's "kicking pixies up the bum".

Hold up. About "Golden Axe" weapon ... Can a mere human really wield it?
Despite some artworks show protagonist wield it,
in the game canon I though only one who possesed evil spirit (Death Adder, Dark Guld, Death Bringer, Damud Hellstrike) could wield the Golden Axe.
I kinda forgot Golden Axe Warrior's story, was the player wielding Golden Axe in the end?

From what I understand, the Golden Axe is like the Tri-Force of the land/world of Yuria. It was originally kept by the royal family until Death Adder came along and killed the royal parents. I think Tyris Flare was the daughter of this family and Gilius smuggled her out as a baby to be raised by the Amazons.

If I recall, in Golden Axe: The Duel (https://goldenaxe.fandom.com/wiki/Golden_Axe:_The_Duel), Zoma (https://goldenaxe.fandom.com/wiki/Zoma) wants the Golden Axe as an ingredient for his potion. Another fighter Panchos (https://goldenaxe.fandom.com/wiki/Panchos) had the axe smelted down to make new armour from. This means the axe can be destroyed and it's golden power distributed in other ways. Other endings in the game shows the axe being used by mortals.

In Golden Axe Warrior (https://goldenaxe.fandom.com/wiki/Golden_Axe_Warrior), the hero does eventually obtain the Golden Axe and uses it to defeat Death Adder.

So yes, while the Golden Axe is like this powerful golden artifact, it can be used by both good and evil and it can be destroyed.

Also may be adding difficulty options, some gamers complain that Elden Ring is too hard.
But then again, hard games were nothing new in SEGA franchise.
Examples : Ecco, Comix Zone, Chakan, and Shinobi PS2.

Ah, I see. I always thougth it was like Thor's mjolnir.
But instead of worthy, someone has to be strong enough / evil enought to wield it.
Turned out that wasn't the case.

I never played any of the Souls games so I wouldn't know. I mean I know they're rather difficult games already. I was thinking more along the lines of Brütal Legend or Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Games that are open-world but not entirely statistic-based like Elder Scrolls or Fallout.

I don't think Sega really gave much thought on the "rules" of the Golden Axe. There is some backstory to it, the axe was made to settle some titanomachy (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titanomachy) going on at the time. The exact power of the axe is never explained which is why I simply think it's Sega's equivilent to the Tri-Force. Both artifacts are golden, created by the gods but can be destructible.
Nice! I only ever heard about the title, but never got around to explore it.
I did. Quite a few failed movies beforewhat we have now. Most blame Ken Penders we never got a TV special of SatAM.

Well I understand the charm of Legend or Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I really hate the artstyle.
Everything looks blurry to me there.
Mario Odyssey is still the best Nintendo-made Switch game for me.
The graphic is sharp and I don't have to deal with broken weapons non sense.

Shouldn't the best weapon be indestructible?

Yeah the weapon endurance in BotW was most furiating. I understand why they implimented it but I think they went too far making the Master Sword requiring a cool down when itnever needed one in past games. As for the blurriness, I think they only applied that to far distances to give the sense of depth.
Shouldn't the best weapon be indestructible?
Well we agree a Golden Axe open-world game should not have stupid weapon endurance like BotW had. But I don't see sacred godly artifacts needs to be indestructible for the sake of the plot. For example the first game The Legend of Zelda (https://zelda.fandom.com/wiki/The_Legend_of_Zelda) introduced the Triforce as a single golden triangle that was broken into eight pieces that must be collected. (Zelda II (https://zelda.fandom.com/wiki/Zelda_II:_The_Adventure_of_Link) claims that the Triforce from the first game was actually the Triforce of Wisdom. Courage and Power were introduced and stapled for the rest of the series.)
Zelda: Wind Waker (https://zelda.fandom.com/wiki/The_Legend_of_Zelda:_The_Wind_Waker) had the Triforce of Courage broken into fragments this time for you to collect and to assemble.

So Nintendo are not above breaking artifacts literally made by gods for the sake of gameplay plot.
So I don't see the problem of doing the same for the Golden Axe. In my fan game idea "GoldEdge", the Golden Axe was shattered, perhaps dealing a killing blow against Dark Guld (https://goldenaxe.fandom.com/wiki/Dark_Guld) or Hellstrike (https://goldenaxe.fandom.com/wiki/Damned_Hellstrike). Instead of being restored, Gilius thought it was best for the axe to remain destroyed, thus the nine fragments were taken far away from one another. The fragments then melted down and forged into weapons containing a portion of the power of the Golden Axe.

The game I have in mind involve collecting the nine Gold Edge Weapons. These weapons can be used in both combat and as tools, such as the hammer able to smash boulders blocking the way or the Sun Rod able to burn or be used as a torch.
Was he deserved the blame or not?
It's kind of hard to tell because even Penders tends to fib. I think it's likely Sega may have cancelled SatAM for other reasons given Sonic Adventure was taking Sonic's franchise in a whole new design and lore. I dunno where the source of the rumour is or the facts.
But most agree that Penders is a sniveling git who may have pilfered his own Work For Hire contract just to screw with Sega over an NDS RPG game that didn't even sell very well.

Okay, let's continue the ideas on Golden Axe discussion thread.

Yeah, even though Penders said it never got past the discussion stage...
(and saying it's not because of him)

(https://64.media.tumblr.com/0c3ab8ed113dbab495896ddf02813d40/tumblr_inline_okknmdwzCr1re1bwb_1280.png)

But we heard different version from Ben Hurst in this (https://www.saturdaymorningsonic.com/features/ben_hurst/),
so it's still unconfirmed what's the real story.
Still Ben's side of story sounds more believable than Penders..

Quote
"I  did consult with DIC to see if there was a way to generate some enthusiasm for a feature film to be the "Third Season" of  SatAm. I was given the name of a SEGA executive and had a most  pleasant conversation. She had to go to a meeting, but said she would  like to talk to me more about the idea.
 
 The next day, I got a  call from Ken Penders, who had been alerted by his contact in their  office that I was interested in getting a Sonic movie going. I  generously offered to include him in the effort and told him my  strategy. Get SEGA to become invested in the idea by hiring us to  interview their creative game designers, execs, etc and see if we  could develop a story line that would fulfill the third season - and simultaneously give them creative ideas to develop new games. A win-win, situation.
 
 Then, I called SEGA back, but I was  shocked when the exec "lit" into me, telling me, "People  pay US to develop Sonic product, we don't pay them!" Then she  hung up on me. Obviously, Penders had related my strategy to them in  a less-than-flattering way. Thanks for the knife, Ken."

Yeah, like, I can already imagine how two-thirds of the story goes and can probably figure out the rest from it. I doubt Dr. Eggman will pull out a gun and shoot Sonic dead after all.

Sonic movie draft from the early 90s and other STI documents uncovered

Quote
If you saw our Knuckles news (http://segabits.com/blog/2022/03/19/early-knuckles-the-echidna-art-and-details-emerge-from-newly-uncovered-internal-document/), we’ve got more! In sharing the Knuckles document, a discussion within a private Facebook group led to a mention of an eBay seller in possession of SEGA Technical Institute documents.
The documents are being sold for (in my opinion) obscene amounts and it just goes to show the difference between an archivist and a collector.
Some real cool stuff is being revealed that has been literally sitting on people’s shelves for years!

Microsoft has tried hard to avoid using the word "furry" here. Instead, these special edition controllers have "textured coatings reminiscent of the 'bristly' texture of hedgehogs in the wild", apparently.
The controllers come in Sonic Blue and Knuckles Red, presumably not like the hedgehogs Microsoft has been stroking lately.

The first social media reactions are calling the film fun and an improvement over the first film, largely because it embraces its video game roots and moves towards being an action movie.
Many also cited the humor and performances from the cast, all of whom inject some heart into the upcoming video game adaptation.

The Best Time James Marsden Ever Broke Character In Sonic The Hedgehog

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tf_emn_97-I

Quote
In a blooper reel from "Sonic the Hedgehog," the cast lets loose and shows how much they enjoyed working together — as well as times that they just couldn't keep a straight face during a take.
There are a lot of funny moments, but one of the best with James Marsden comes from one of his interactions with Jim Carrey, showing a scene that apparently took several tries to film without them breaking character.

This comes from Sonic the Hedgehog film producer Toby Ascher, who shared that moniker in the production notes for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 as embargos on reviews for the film lifted on March 28, as shared by VGC.
According to Ascher, the plan is to continue to expand Paramount’s Sonic into an extended universe of movies and TV shows.”

May be the result will be decided after the reception of the third movie.
The third movie said it won't be following game story order anymore.

I imagine the third movie will be a loose adaption of Sonic & Knuckles (as in concentrating on the Death Egg) but will have elements of Sonic CD sprinkled in there, like Amy Rose.
Or, the third movie might be a loose adaption of Sonic Adventure which would fit in the theme more of echidna heritage.

This is why movie producers should make contracts for actors to cover more than one film per contract.

Good luck to Paramount trying to replace him. I've seen popular TV series end just because they had to change the actor of a main role to someone else.
Unless Robotnik is the kind of Doctor from Gallifrey, I doubt even Paramount could pull off replacing Jim Carrey.

Jim Carrey Once Shared He Wanted to Destroy Hollywood

“My plan was not to join Hollywood, it was to destroy it.
Like, take a gigantic sledgehammer to the leading man and to all the seriousness,” he said in the same interview with Hollywood Reporter.
Given his popularity during the peak of his career, it’s arguable that Carrey achieved just that.

Finally watched the movie in my local theatre.
It was fun and enjoyable movie, definitely better than the first one.

I'll finally be watching it today!
I wish it was an April Fools, but even though the interview was uploaded in April 01, it's a recorded interview that's happened before that :

Jim Carrey Says He's 'Retiring': 'I've Done Enough'

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-uk66ko1Nw (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-uk66ko1Nw)

But he still could be back just for Sonic 3 if the studio's willing to fulfil his wish :

Jim Carrey Wants Fat Eggman In Sonic 3

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2Bwj33IkVA (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2Bwj33IkVA)
It's nice to know that while he wants to retire from the cinema he still wants to finish up the movie series he's devoted to. Jim Carrey made his place with the Sonic franchise a a whole, it be a pity he drops from it.

It's nice to know that while he wants to retire from the cinema he still wants to finish up the movie series he's devoted to. Jim Carrey made his place with the Sonic franchise a a whole, it be a pity he drops from it.

Indeed but he rarely did a sequel (Only Ace Ventura, Dumb & Dumber, and Sonic the Hedgehog), let alone a second sequel.
Jim Carrey had very little interest in reprising his role as Ace Ventura in the sequel back then.
He even spent a lot of time away from the movie production due to "sick leave".
The only reason he agreed to make the film is because of a contractual obligation to do so.
He hated to "impersonate his past self character".
Same character in the sequel had to be different, and we know how different Eggman is in Sonic 2 compared to Sonic 1.

Morgan Creek Entertainment has attempted to persuade Carrey to make more Ace Ventura movies, to which he declined.
That's why now Evan Peters is the one who's going to be Ace Ventura.

Marsden suggested Frogger, which prompted Schwartz to throw his name in the hat to be cast as the frog.
Ironically, there is already a Frogger TV series on Peacock.
Schwartz also off-handedly mentioned the text adventure game Zork, which has no visuals of any kind beyond words on the screen, but quickly realized that actually does have some potential for a film.

Just won't be the same. But I can sort of see why Jim Carrey would avoid sticking with his characters for too long. Jim Carrey is more than just a silly-man actor, he's been in mature roles, dramatic roles and even scary roles at times. He probably avoids Ace Ventura and The MAst because he just doesn't want to be type-cast when he has a whole range of personas to act.

He talks about filming in British Columbia, what he liked best about the stunt his character does in the sequel and how hard it is to keep a straight face when Jim Carrey goes off script.

Scenes in Hawaii were also funny even if it just starring the human companies.
I thought the hawaiian scenes dragged on a bit and could of had less of them to have more of a development between Sonic and Tails. I also thought how GUN was introduced was kinda pitiful, especially with Rachel agreeing the name "GUN" was bad. Because it felt more likie an undercover SWAT team than a proper government agency as depicted in the games, perhaps would of been more believable if Walter introduced the team as "Virtua Cops" which would of been more believable.
The Mask 2 / Son of the Mask while it was kinda funny was disappointing, so may be his decision was right.
(https://i.makeagif.com/media/1-05-2015/F2puU4.gif)
The Mask 2 as mostly it's own thing though and sort of ended up bad on it's own merits. Perhaps Carrey's inclusion to a sequel would of offered an entirely new story but I doubt it. But then again, why Son of the Mask and not a movie adaption of the comic "The Mask Returns"? Albeit less violent and bloody.
Kinda like Muppet Show movies may be?

Could they make that concept of an episode longer than an hour though? I dunno.

I guess if I made a Frogger movie, it would be an adventure journey movie. Could be about a frog who's living peacefully in a pond until one day his pond was filled in with concrete and the lands dug up by diggers. He escapes but gets knocked out, only to wake up and see a busy intersection paved over his pond. Now he must make it not only across the intersection, but the big city in order to find a new home for himself. All the while meeting a colourful cast of characters along the way. Maybe Frogger meets a family of turtles (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turtles_(video_game)) who are under the same prediciment as he is in. I'm imagining it similar to such movies as The Brave Little Toaster or An American Tale where a small protagonist loose their life of simple pleasures and have to overcome odds and urban hazards to make it to a more pleasing destination.

Yes, that's more interesting. Also in Frogger 3D (3DS), there are many frogs where the protagonist frog can ride on to help him on the journey. A big giant frog, a frog that could emit light, a frog that could jump very far (but had trouble to make short jump), etc. They could make a cast of those many frogs as characters like on Angry Bird movie so the protagonist wasn't the only frog in the movie.

Don't get me wrong, I really liked GUN in the movie, I just think it did not need an introduction. Especially by the most whitest guy they had in a hawaiian shirt. He's no Nick Fury with the Helicarrier.

He said he wouldn't make Knuckles sound sexy... he failed, yet no one is upset by it.
All in all, I really liked his portrayal of Knuckles. He made Knuckles just a bit dumb like from Sonic Boom but still retains the respect for the character that he had in the games. My friend compared him to Drax from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Even I didn't know the owls were actually the Babylons. I just figured with was a race thing between Echidnas and Owls.
Sonic the Hedgehog Series Wouldn't Recast Dr. Robotnik If Jim Carrey Retires

I'm glad. If Jim Carrey wants to retire I am all for his decision to do so. All I ask is to continue his role as Dr. Robotnik in the movies if he can.

And if the TV series turns out to be animated, they could always get Micheal Daingerfield (https://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/Michael-Daingerfield/), Rob Paulsen (https://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/Rob-Paulsen/) or Matt Frewer (https://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/Matt-Frewer/) for the role of animated Dr. Robotnik. They all voiced cartoon versions of Jim Carrey at one point in their careers.
(Heck the animated series of The Mask and Ace Ventura had a crossover.)

Don't get me wrong, I really liked GUN in the movie, I just think it did not need an introduction. Especially by the most whitest guy they had in a hawaiian shirt. He's no Nick Fury with the Helicarrier.

I'm kinda dissapointed Neal McDonough wasn't back in Sonic Movie 2.
I always love him as a villain.
He got this annoying face that somehow make him perfect as villain.

(https://thumbs.gfycat.com/OblongKindheartedItalianbrownbear-max-1mb.gif)

His cast as Damien Darhk was also spot on.
And used to be happy when he was cast as Bison on Street Fighter: Legend of Chun Li,
but the movie was so bad it's such a waste.

(http://45.media.tumblr.com/47c2f49a9d30389cd42dccd70ee3461a/tumblr_nz78tupHOA1uo3yvuo2_400.gif)

Perhaps. A whole cast of frogs trying to navigate through a dangerous city, all the while following the leader Frogger.

And that would be more suited to animated movies like Angry Birds or Despicable Me.
So if Ben Schwartz want to be the lead cast, he's probably just becoming a voice actor
.......... which not too different with Sonic movie.

He said he wouldn't make Knuckles sound sexy... he failed, yet no one is upset by it.
All in all, I really liked his portrayal of Knuckles. He made Knuckles just a bit dumb like from Sonic Boom but still retains the respect for the character that he had in the games. My friend compared him to Drax from Guardians of the Galaxy.

Idris Elba said Knuckles is type of guy who's "straight to the point"
So I think it's not as dumb as Boom version.
Boom version tends to pause first before saying something.

Honestly I prefer the original music video (http://y2u.be/qeSx1G5u2oU), but it's nice to hear the song in English.

The avatar (or vtuber?) feels cringe to me, but I still like the song.

I'm glad. If Jim Carrey wants to retire I am all for his decision to do so. All I ask is to continue his role as Dr. Robotnik in the movies if he can.

Amen to that

And if the TV series turns out to be animated, they could always get Micheal Daingerfield (https://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/Michael-Daingerfield/), Rob Paulsen (https://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/Rob-Paulsen/) or Matt Frewer (https://www.behindthevoiceactors.com/Matt-Frewer/) for the role of animated Dr. Robotnik.

I think cartoon version's right was already acquired by Wildbrain and Netflix with Sonic Prime, so I doubt Paramount could make one soon.

Him getting cummupance against Dr. Robotnik would be great. I can imagine him getting Robotnik on the ground and saying "The day your ass gets rightfully handed to you would be the day nobody cares.".
And that would be more suited to animated movies like Angry Birds or Despicable Me.

True. SO frogger movie is not that impossible.
Idris Elba said Knuckles is type of guy who's "straight to the point"

Yeah Movieverse Knuckles is not sharpest but definitely on point which makes him great.

I agree.
I think cartoon version's right was already acquired by Wildbrain and Netflix with Sonic Prime, so I doubt Paramount could make one soon.
I imagine Sonic Prime Robotnik will be voiced by Mike Pollock, that is if he said anything on the role. If Sonic Prime has an episode where Sonic visits the movieverse then yeah I imagine Rob Paulson or Micheal Daingerfield for the role of animated movieverse Dr. Robotnik. Or if the upcomming Sonic the Series (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Sonic_the_Series) will be animated then I doubt Jim Carrey will voice the role. I mean he never did in any of his movies animated series.

Open to the idea sure... but honestly, rather not see it happen. Even if Movie Sonic goes to the world established in the upcomming Super Mario (https://www.mariowiki.com/Untitled_Mario_film) movie I just don't want to see such crossover happen. TO me that's just something that will either end up really good or really bad and will leave much fandoms divided over it.

I'd rather Jeff Fowler, or at least Paramount itself press Sega for the rights to make other Sega movies to make that cinematic universe I go on about. But Sonic only has two movies so far and I don't want it to be contaminated with crossovers outside of Sega franchses.

I mean... bah, I dunno. Inspired by StarKids (https://www.teamstarkid.com/) I thought "What if it would be cool if these guys made a Sonic and Mario stageplay?" Those guys always knew how to mix great comedy into their parodies while applying the right degree of drama and sincerity to take the source materials seriously and I can imagine a Smash Bros. adaption like this... but not really for the big screen.

The result from 4,234 theatres came in approximately 22% above the pre-pandemic original’s $58m three-day February 2020 and sets up the film heading into spring break.
It also offers encouragement to exhibition as family audiences show they are willing to turn up for appealing, commercial fare after two years of Covid-19.

"I think smart and completely dumb are essential parts of my character in life. And they assert themselves individually from time to time.
I think sometimes you do things in your life and you think, 'Well, maybe I'm a pretty smart animal.' And then there are other times you just go, 'No, I haven't learned a thing.' (Laughs)
So it's just a great thing to be able to play the spectrum, and to be thought of that way is wonderful.
Obviously, I had to dumb it down a little bit to play a guy with a 300 IQ, but ... No, this character's so much fun, and he's the contrast to Sonic."

"Jim and Lee (Majdoub, who plays Agent Stone), they're so great together and do so much funny stuff, and it is heartbreaking that it all can't make the movie because it's just so fun to watch the two of them.
We had a few more scenes inside the Mean Bean where they were just being themselves, and it was so fun and so hilarious, but at the end of the day it wasn't necessarily moving the story forward as much as would be required to earn a place in the movie."

Kids movies tends to got mediocre reviews, not everyone could enjoy them.

I hope when the DVD comes out these cut scenes will be viewable.

It would be a solid reason to buy them, especially for Jim Carrey fans.
There is Jim Carrey fanpage in Facebook that's actively promote the movie to the fans since it could be the last Jim Carrey movie for a long time.
I'm sure they're also gonna promote the DVD version again if it contains them.

Q : "What was it like coming full circle and getting to meet the rest of the cast and crew of this film closer to the premiere?"

Colleen : "I went up to Jim Carrey to introduce myself, and I just assumed he didn't know who I was. So I was like, "Hi, I'm Colleen, I play Tails."
He grabbed both of my hands, and he's very tall and I'm very short. So he grabbed both of my hands and he bent over and went, "I know."
And it was so sweet. He had the sweetest smile on his face, and I was like, "I'm gonna cry." And I know he said something after that, and I'm sure I said things too, but I have no idea beyond that what either of us said.

But everyone could not have been more welcoming. James Marsden gave me a hug like we've been friends for years. He introduced me to his kids, I introduced him to mine. It's just been glorious."

That’s partly because Elba (49) is a dedicated fan of video games, and partly because he (like the author of this article) is the father of a 7-year-old son and was eager to make some movies they could share as a family.
“You and I remember those first early games, and now here we are.
Our sons are like, ‘Wow, I can see “Sonic 2” with my dad.’ That’s special.”
Even so, when I mention that my son and I have also bonded over video games, Elba warns: “Is he into Minecraft and Roblox? Be careful. Be aware. You might lose your child.”

Imagine what it must  be like working on the Sonic movie? Not only would you be making a movie based on your favourite game series but rubbing elbows with Jim Carrey, Idris Elba and Colleen O'Shaughnessey.

Heaven-like feeling. That would be something that they could brag to their grandchildren later.

Quote
Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog movie’s success has now gotten the studio interested in going forward with a movie based on Streets of Rage.
This project will be done under dj2 Entertainment, who recently also signed a contract with Amazon to adapt the video game “It Takes Two” to film or TV.

Article : http://segabits.com/blog/2022/04/18/streets-of-rage-movie-in-the-works-with-john-wick-creator-behind-the-project/ (http://segabits.com/blog/2022/04/18/streets-of-rage-movie-in-the-works-with-john-wick-creator-behind-the-project/)
As much as I praised this on the other thread, my only concern is that when I think of Streets of Rage, I think of '80s-mid'90s movies like Kurt Russel movies or The Warriors or Dragon Warriors movie. Y'know kung-fu, city-based yet colourful. What Kung Fury did (Did you know Kung Fury is getting a sequel?). I'm pretty sure Streets of Rage was inspired by the same sources as Kung Fury movies.

My concern Streets of Rage will be some modern generic action flick like the John Wick movies were. Derek Kolstad makes generic action movies about generic thugs with generic celebrity actors shooting at other generic bad guys while the camera goes back and forth all action like because it's the only way to make shootouts look cool.
Then car chase scenes with sponsored vehicles and explosions.
And John Wick movies had thick single-coloured filter which would be either blue, green or piss-yellow.

If we were to have a Streets of Rage movie, I'd want it like any of Jackie Chan movies that involve law-enforcement (Rush Hour, Police Story etc). They're modern police action movies with guns, car-chases and such but Jackie Chan makes sure to make interesting and colourful characters and city location and gratuitous ammounts of Kung-fu and daring stunts over guns.

I'd be dissapointed if Streets of Rage ends up a forgettable action movie like Kolstads movies without Keanu Reeves in them.

Post by: Berto on April 19, 2022, 08:45:23 pm
Yeah, Rush Hour and Police Story approach will be nice.
As for me, about the time setting, I don't want them to force that it's happened in 80s/90s like Wonder Woman 84.
Just make it colorful and not too dark would be enough.
Also balance in story, action, and humour.
Humour-less video game adaptation movie tends to be forgettable.

Whenever Kolstad decide it to be a modern or mid-90s movie or not, I just don't want it to be a generic "pew-pew" action movie.
Here are trailers to movies Derek written for (but didn't produce).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8nw8r0xRoM
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCx5eJ6gNoU
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCSzBtwnoGk

Do you see my concern? Streets of Rage is about cops resolving conflict WITH THEIR FISTS! These movies are about mobsters or thugs just shooting at each other.

Now, Derek Kolstad did Co-executive produce The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (https://marvelcinematicuniverse.fandom.com/wiki/The_Falcon_and_The_Winter_Soldier), even writing for the episodes Power Broker (https://marvelcinematicuniverse.fandom.com/wiki/Power_Broker_(episode)) and The Whole World Is Watching (https://marvelcinematicuniverse.fandom.com/wiki/The_Whole_World_Is_Watching) which of course involves shoot outs, but at least he has some experiance writing for shows that are not just about shoot outs.

But you can see my concern for choosing Derek Kolstad. Strets of Rage is about street crime resolve with brawling. I don't want to see Axel Stone and Adam Hunter hiding behind some cars or barricades shooting guns at generic thugs who are shooting with guns. Streets of Rage is a beat 'em up, not a shooting game.

Damn.. That's true. SoR without beating many people at once with fist's like Street Fighter without one on one fighting.
Now I'm afraid that it would be like House of the Dead movie.
Axl and friends were cops in whole movie, using mostly guns, and only quit their jobs at the end of the movie.

The only "hope" I can think of from all this is... remember how everyone thought Sonic's first movie was going to be terrible? Like, they responded to the backlash from the first trailer and it gave fans hope the movie might turn out to be better than expected but bakc then people already judged the movie harshly?

Well let's just hope Kolstad will keep the firearms to a minimum and hire a good martial arts choreographer for the film.

The difference with Sonic's first movie is ... the dislike button was still a thing in youtube.
This one how we supposed to express our dislike when the new trailer comes out.
For now ...

People use the Return YouTube Dislike (https://www.returnyoutubedislike.com/) extention these days so the whole youTube issue of removing the DIslike button was pretty much glossed over when the extention came out.

It's just a question whenever or not the uploader will read the comments or not or look at the dislike stats on their end.

Tolkein fans complained about Rings of Power because while it is an original story set in Middle Earth it still disregards some establishments set by Tolkein himself, such as elves with human skin colour when all elves are suppose to be white. Some elves whiter than white man.

On the subject of Streets of Rage cinematic adaption, I hope Kolstad choose an actual American city to set it in, such as Los Angeles, San Francisco or Detroit.
I didn't even knew "Wood Oak City" was a thing in Street of Rage until SoR4. I simply thought the games take place in a generic American city.

Well.. considering E-Swat take place in fictional American city (Liberty City), SOR's doing it too is no surprises.
But movie version could be different.
Using real city could make them more grounded to audiences.

I'm not a die-hard Tolkein fan, but from what I understand elves are suppose to be a more divine being than humans. Yes they are still mortal to a degree and can fall victim to pride and dark powers given the races who were given Rings of Power are most susceptible to the One Ring.

Keep in mind, "Black" and "White" wasn't considered a racial thing in his stories. To Tolkein, he associated "Black" with dark, corrupted and evil things while "White" is associated with light, pure and holy things. Because elves are regarded a divine race he made them practically whiter than most white humans.

The closest to black elves in Middle-Earth would be orcs. From what I understand of the lore, the ancestors of orcs were once elves who were kidnapped by Melkor and were abused and corrupted into the orcs they are now. Their skin varies from dark grey to black.

The colour of elves and orcs skin has nothing to do with racial colour, but by divinity or something like that, which is why a brown-skin elf is not regarded as canon. It's not a racist thing, just a Middle-earth elf can't be biologically brown no more than we humans be biologically green.

E-Swat takes place in GTA4?

Well Liberty City does sound like an actual place I can believe can exist in America.
Wood Oak City... not so much. Even the fictional American city of Gotham seems more believable than me, and I acknowledge it's fictional.

Maybe if Streets of Rage takes place in Miami, Los Angeles or the seedy-side of New York I can believe that for a Streets of Rage game.

Yeah Orc and OGres in traditional mythology are usually depicted as green, or sometimes Ogres are depicted as really ugly, really violent humans. Tolkein put his spin of mythology in his books which in turn influence fantasy genre itself from then on. We wouldn't have D&D elves if it were not for Tolkein and same goes for every version of fantasy elves out there depicted as beautiful people with long slender ears.

I see why it would be called that. But it turns out the known name for New York (other than the Big Apple) is "Empire City", so Sonic Unleashed and Steven Universe got it right. It's these kinds of cases I find more acceptable when it comes to fictional cities.

Then there's fictional cities like "Raccoon City" from Resident Evil which I find plausible if it was not for the fact Raccoon City is regarded as recently founded territory by Umbrella Corp making it a privately owned city. SO that I can sort of believe. A corporation being so exceedigly rich they can plonk a city down and make it habitable in less than half a century.
Yeah, Wood Oak doesn't sound like a city name.

The city is nameless on Bare Knuckle 1 and 2 but Bare Knuckle 3 had "Wood Oak City" name, so I guess the name did come from Japan.

Yes, in game version, Bare Knuckles 3 was the first that used that name.
Unless there is manga or magazine that I never read that used it before, but I doubt it.
Articles about SOR1 or SOR2 back then only stated it's a New York-inspired fictional city.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 to stream on Paramount+ May 24

Quote
The move to get the Sonic film sequel onto streaming 45 days after its run in theaters started after the first movie was given a digital home release on March 31, 2020.
That move occurred when the pandemic placed everyone on lockdown, and movie theaters were closing down to protect moviegoers and employees from contracting Covid-19 in its early days.
Although the pandemic has slowed in recent months, Sonic 2 streaming on Paramount+ early is a sign that the tradition of releasing movies 90 days after their theatrical run is irrevocably broken.

One month after the movie aired.
Oooh! Shiny!
Yes, in game version, Bare Knuckles 3 was the first that used that name.
Unless there is manga or magazine that I never read that used it before, but I doubt it.
Articles about SOR1 or SOR2 back then only stated it's a New York-inspired fictional city.
Well there's still a chance for the Paramount-Sega Cinematic Universe to remedy that situation. Rather it be set in the bad side of New York or Los Angeles. I heard Detroit is one of the most crime-ridden cities in America so why not there?

Nah, I think because it was meant to be in the same town with E-Swat, but since the D-Swat concept was canceled they then decided to make the city nameless.
Liberty City on E-Swat was inspired by New York afterall.

RoboCop is like the E-Swat guy! (Probably an inspiration.)
I'm just saying I hope the upcoming Streets of Rage movie will be set in one of the popular American cities where films are usually shot.

Also, if we ever get an AfterBurner adaption... I'd rather it have Tom Cruise as a cameo of the AfterBurner pilot. Top Gun (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Top_Gun) is also a Paramount film which and a sequel (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Top_Gun:_Maverick) rather recently and I'm pretty sure AfterBurner was inspired from Top Gun.

I mean, I know it's unlikely that if a Sega Cinematic Universe does expand from Sonic and Streets of Rage films that it would cover AfterBurner, but if it did reference it at all I think it would be a cool "double-cameo" if they made Tom Cruise tie-in to the AfterBurner series which still being a recognized cameo to the Top Gun franchise.

I believe so, either inspired from the movie, the arcade game, or both of them.
Since RoboCop arcade game by Data East was also a success.

Agree. Tom Cruise is also an 80s icon, he would be a fit cameo of After Burner.

That would be so sweet. I mean, I can't really imagine AfterBurner getting it's own SCU movie. You're better off watching Top Gun for that kind of thing. Problem is if Tom Cruise cameos as Maverick people might only get the reference as Top Gun over AfterBurner and wouldn't understand why MAverick would be in Sonic, or related Sega movie. Dunno how they would pull off both references at the same time.

But given Top Gun is a Paramount franchise means they could pull it off.

Marvel never had a problem throwing obscure comic characters on mid credit scene,
so may be the cameo would have to be on mid credit scene.

Sonic the Hedgehog Olive Garden Jokes Weren’t Product Placement

“A lot of that was not product placement,” Casey said with a laugh. “The Olive Garden thing…
Olive Garden didn’t pay us for that, it was just a joke. It was just a little thing, and then it seemed to keep growing on set when I wasn’t there, they kept throwing in more Olive Garden references, I don’t know.
The joke was originally just that the General gives them a crappy gift card at the end, and then it became a whole thing. It worked its way back into earlier in the movie.”

They were not above throwing in obscure characters as long as they're Marvel characters. I'd be lying if I said I never heard of the Collector before (or Howard the Duck for that matter) but I understand how obscure they are that most of the modern audience won't know them, but the very-very least they are Marvel Comic characters.

In the video game AfterBurner, we see the aircraft carrier, we see the planes and that's about it. Later games perhaps show the marines on the aircraft carriers or the pilots in the plane but they're just generic fighter jet pilots in full uniform, no names or faces.
Because of this, it would make it too obscure, or the very least difficult to reference in Sonic 3 or any other Sega movie produced by Paramount.

If they had a scene set on one of GUNs aircraft carrier, or at least Metal Harbor, then that would be an opportunity for an AfterBurner reference. But given how generic both the game and the scene would be how will AfterBurner be noticed and not just GUN with it's own Navy fleet?

The only way I can imagine that happening is Tom Cruise plays as a fighter pilot in similar to LT. Pete Michell only when asked for his callsign he goes by "After Burner". And then we see him in action while cinematic rendition of the After Burner theme (http://y2u.be/Wr_k3Un_vDQ) plays.
(https://tallypress.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/top-gun-maverick.gif)

That way Top Gun fans will know his presence is a Top Gun reference, but Tom cruise plays the role of a character unique to the Sega Cinematic Universe under the callsign "AfterBurner" who just so happen to heavily reference Maverick.

‘Sonic Adventure’ Band Crush 40 Could Soundtrack Third Sonic Movie

We recently caught up with Crush 40 to talk all things Sonic, and it turns out that the duo are 100 percent down to soundtrack a third Sonic film should the opportunity present itself.
“Absolutely one million percent yes. I reached out to them, we had some conversations,” Gioeli told us. “I’m gonna be ready for that, I’ll just put it to you that way. We want to write a bunch of songs, but of course we still have our nostalgic stuff. This means we want to write a bunch of songs, of course we have our nostalgic stuff but we also want to bring some fresh new stuff, should that happen for Sonic 3.”

I highly doubt it and not out of spite to believe so. I mean the games themselves have the simple premise of shooting planes. It's a very simple premise given it's an arcade game. The reason why the theme was chosen was because of Top Gun which was popular at the time.

Do you know what other navy film based after a game with limited premise out there? Battleships (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battleship_(film)). It's mostly based on actual battleships than fighter jets but the concept of creation is similar, both are based on games that's premise is mostly a theme and pure gameplay than any story to build on.

As I've gone on and on before, I'm all for a Sega Cinematic Universe to come from Sonic movies. I'm hoping the upcoming Streets of Rage (and maybe Yakuza) movie will spawn that. But what would you rather have, AfterBurner being made into a movie like Battleships, or would you rather keep it to no more than a cameo and just watch Top Gun instead?

It's why I suggest not only to keep it as no more than a reference (as in the SCU of AfterBurner takes place in the SCU equivalent of Metal Harbor (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Metal_Harbor), or at least a GUN aircraft carrier) but to make that reference with Tom Cruise given his recognition with the Top Gun series. He doesn't have to cameo the role of LT Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, Tom cruise could simply play as a lieutenant with callsign "AfterBurner" and familiar theme tune when take flight. Cinema-fans will know it be a Top Gun reference and Sega-fans will know it's an AfterBurner reference.

Yeah I would rather After Burner kept as cameo and use the resources to make movie of other franchise that's more popular.

I played this game beforre. There's a few more differences:
  • Dr. Robotnik is behind the ring on the western poster while he's in the ring behind Sonic in the JApanese poster.
  • Sonic is scaled down a bit in the Japanese poster.
  • Knuckles is scaled up, making the Tornado plane down a bit.
  • Tom is fliped and put to the right side while Maddie is simply moved to the right side.

Being able to convey scale was a major challenge in a world populated by 30-foot mushrooms. 
“As human beings we see little mushrooms, so it was difficult to given them depth,” Ghosh Dastider says.
“If a mushroom was really 30 foot tall, the problem is the texture detail and having something that you can relate to such as moss or soil.  You add scratches or colorization until it feels right.” 
Atmospherics were also incorporated into the imagery.

Schwartz, who was a video game junkie as a child, originally just voiced a short test scene as Sonic — which director Jeff Fowler pitched to studios.

The movie Battleship was indeed based on the board game by Hasbro.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cFJZFWTmGAw
Just because they can make an engaging stories with ponies and robots that can turn into cars, doesn't mean they can make an engaging story out of all their properties.

This is why I figure if Paramount or Sega ever decided to make a Sega Cinematic Universe and adapt AfterBurner to it, I'd rather have AfterBurner just as a cameo than what Universal and Hasbro did with Battleships.

Ben Schwartz Says Sonic the Hedgehog 3 Movie Will be "Crazy"

The actor also dropped some hints about the next film in the series, and how it might build on the stakes set in the first two movies.
"For 'Sonic 2', we blew it out so much, and for '3,' it's going to be bananas, it's going to be crazy! I can't wait," Schwartz told The Playlist.

Yeah but this movie decided to keep ugly movie Sonic for a joke.

But the joke wasn't directed to Sonic, it was directed to the fandom.
If I'm not mistaken the old-designed Sonic says this to Dale  :
"The internet saw my human teeth and burned the place down.”

Kinda spoiler but I'm gonna say it anyway since it's not a SEGA movie ...

You know he has an important role in the movie right?
He's secretly an FBI top agent who went undercover as a "laughable" movie actor so that nobody's suspicious at him.

Not quite. He said he was getting a TV series where he ride along side the FBI.
"Ugly Sonic, Ugly Crimes".
The running gag was whenever he was lying or not given it was highly doubtful Ugly Sonic had such a gig.

Turns out he did.

Ugly Sonic leads the FBI to arrest Pete, so he's definitely one in charge.
The thing he said getting a TV series where he ride along side the FBI could be a lie so that people won't suspect him if he saw them hanging out ith FBI.

Well.. He's only showing up three minutes on screen so different interpretation could happen.
For me, I don't think this movie is insulting Sonic, and I believe SEGA and Paramount are okay with it too.

Sonic Advances to $375 Million Globally as Sonic 2 Continues to Go Strong

(https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/756503521498759318/978217551932850196/20220523_154610.jpg)

Quote
This is, notably, the last weekend before Sonic 2 hits Paramount+ and Epix broadcast channals, so this may be the last major box office jump we’ll be getting until its Japanese release this summer.
At $375 million, Sonic 2 is now just $25 million away from $400 million. Can it reach it? Maybe. Not everyone has Paramount Plus, and if Sonic 2 can continue to make a few million in the US and a few million over seas every week for another month, that will add up.
The big wild card, of course, is Japan.

I believe he was just leading the cops to where the crime was after Chip 'n Dale tipped him off and that's it. Not really clear he became a police officer or why else would he hang around conventions?

Quote
"I throw the spaghetti against the wall, see if it sticks, see if it's al dente," Carrey says in the behind-the-scenes featurette.
"I know the material, and then, of course I want to try it a bunch of different ways.
Give the director so much to work with, so many levels of emotion, so many levels of cartoon.
I'll do them all night if they let me."

Idris Elba, Jim Carrey, and Sonic 2 director Jeff Fowler dig deep into Knuckles' motivation
Explains Why Knuckles Is So Mean In Sonic The Hedgehog 2


(https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/756503521498759318/978945404341223424/FB_IMG_1652961586917.jpg)

Quote
"Knuckles is the last of the echidnas. The echidnas are a very proud warrior race that have sort of gotten themselves extinct by virtue of their own aggressiveness," Fowler explained. "Because he's the last of his kind, he really has this deep sense of honor."

Added Elba, "He's not a warm and fuzzy guy. He's straight to the point and means business. He doesn't really understand emotion. He just understands brute force."

That brute force is exactly what Robotnik needs, Carry said. "When he hears about the power of Knuckles, it's a daunting task to dominate this character but that's what he must do," the actor offered. He must use Knuckles' power to his own gains."

Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (2022) - Robotnik gets High in the Mushroom Planet

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9ERmAYCeMI (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9ERmAYCeMI)
Some scenes I would of liked kept in over how long Operation: Catfish went for, such s MAddie and Tom's talk about adopting Sonic.
But I think it's for the best this scene was cut. It was too goofy and weird for a Sonic movie. Especially given the pre-quill comics already had Robotnik potentially high from living munching mushrooms.

Oh yeah, you're right. I forgot that it was in the pre-quill comics too.

Yeah. Some cut scenes I would of liked kept in but the pre-quill comics did it justice.

Though... I didn't like how most of the zones Tails past through were regarded as separate worlds. I would of preferred all those zones were on Mobius instead.

The scene I'd like to keep is cancel culture scene.

That scene made me cringe  abit. Especially when he cheaply photoshopped his face onto someone elses gofundme page.

IQ of 300 my ass if that's the case.

If I was Dr. Eggman and in serious need of funding I would either:
A. Start some sort of business that makes monetization efficient, easy and near-automated. Such as buying the cheapest casino in Las Vegas and using theoretical physics and successful business practices to make that casino the most popular casino ever.
B. Break Lindsey from Jail and re-hire her to rob banks on my behalf. As evil overlord Dr. Robotnik,I understandably would be too proud for common crimes, but being evil why should I care for the law or the well-being of others? So get someone else to do the dirty work.

If not Lindsey then a good opportunity to introduce the Bonanza Bros. as hired lackies second to Stone. Perhaps the Bonanza Bros. unaware who the boss is as long as the payment is good.

That could work but that will take a lot of time of the movies that would make the movie lot longer again.
They just want to show that Eggman can solve the problem in less than one minute.

They technically didn't, they skipped over it. Which is fine because it shows Dr. Robotnik was still resourceful by keeping cache of badniks in places not even the government knew about... Such as that satellite. There maybe more than one badnik cache given Agent Stone was able to obtain the coffee shop in Green Hills and not only tripped it out with a super computer but manage to hide badniks in the backroom without Tom, Wade or Sonic knowing about it.

By cutting out that scene, they show that Dr. Robotnik didn't need immediate funding given he already had the badniks.

Of course, what I don't get is... if the Eggpod (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Eggpod_(Paramount)) was regarded a prototype that needed immense cosmic power to function meaning it was a one-of-a-kind flying vehicle weapon that some regarded as the egg-mobile of the movie. But it turns out Dr. Robotnik already made the Egg Mobile (https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/Egg_Mobile_(Paramount)) and it was in space all this time.

So either... Dr. Robotnik made those Buzz Bombers and the Egg Mobile as a successor to the Eggpod somewhen during the first movie (perhaps after Robotnik weaponized Sonic's quill and before the fight in San Francisco) and launched them up into space without anyone knowing... or Agent Stone made those abdniks and the Egg Mobile and launched the satellite during Robotnik's absence. It's never stated.

I should probably ask on SNN about it.

That we'll never know unless we ask the scriptwriters.
I prefer the version Agent Stone made those during Robotnik's absence.
But that still leaves question ... why Agent Stone didn't find out that Robotnik's back right away when Robotnik's using it?

He didn't, don't you recall? When Dr. Robotnik arrived back on Earth he didn't had any tech, just Knuckles, and went to directly attack Sonic. The only tech he had was his glove which he used to cut the door handle off the Wachowski's door.

When Robotnik and Knuckles failed to kill Sonic, he decided it was time to call Agent Stone.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_o0woY2iJJo

As you can see, the Egg Mobile was on top of the satellite.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=awIa_D8TZ04

It's likely that the Egg Mobile is using the same hovering technology as the drone badnik but as I pointed out with the Eggpod, the Eggpod was suppose to be the "prototype" and that it needed a lot of energy to function.

If the Egg Mobile is suppose to be a more compact successor of the Eggpod, who made it and when? It couldn't possibly be Dr. Robotnik given he was stranded on the Mushroom Planet the exact same time the Eggpod was destroyed.

May be he created lot of things before his encounter of Sonic, but hasn't need to use them all until now.

Yeah but... in Sonic 1 we have a scene where Dr. Robotnik is surprised by how much power Sonic's quill has and tells Agent Stone to ready the "prototype".

Then Tom took Sonic to Rachels place and then to that San Francisco pyramid and we see Dr. Robotnik flying the Prototype.

So, the only logical conclusion is that given it was called the "prototype", it was the one-and-only, but Dr. Robotnik decides to build the Egg Mobile during Tom and Sonic at Rachels and despite the Egg Mobile being regarded the successor... goes back to the Eggpod. It just doesn't make much sense to me.

My only conclusion is that the Egg Mobile is not really the successor to the Eggpod. I mean, while weaponized it doesn't look as dangerous as the Eggpod. Though it still doesn't explain why it's flight capabilities are more advanced than the Eggpod.

It could be intended. Not as a killer machine like eggpod, but as a distraction machines.

Here’s hoping we’ll get to end things by reporting that it’s surpassed $400 million!

Yakuza: Like a Dragon: Kazuma Kiryu, once one of the most fearsome yakuza and known as the "Dragon of the Dojima Family," comes back to Kamuro-cho after a ten-year jail sentence.
His return means many things to many different people, but to one girl, it means she may have a chance of finding her mother.
To one of Kazuma's yakuza friends, however, it means a chance to settle a score.

I hope the new movie will consider at least some ties with Sonic's movie in the long run. Depends if the studio that makes the Yakuza movie has any ties with Paramount.

Especially the parts in the middle where we're bumping into each other, we got to just really go for it, and it was so much fun."

I found the Siberian tavern scene to be my second least favourite scene in the movie. I found it rather "Well this movie is for kids, lets give them an obligatory dance scene with pop music.) I also found the whole thing rather cartoony with the granny knitting a pirate flag and the fish head saying "run". Isn't the whole point of Sonic and Tails being on Earth is a sense of realism?

When I first saw the pavonka guy, I thought he was going to turn into a werebear as a reference to Altered Beast.
(https://static.wikia.nocookie.net/alteredbeast/images/a/a4/Bear.png)
That would of been so much cooler than a dance battle and would leave audience with a lot of questions that could be answered in an Altered Beast spin-off.

This scene and the wedding scene are definitely not for Sonic fans but more for general audiences.
Most of kids laughed like crazy on this scene in the cinema where I went and most adult laughed a lot at the wedding scene.
While it was cooler for SEGA fans if it was related to Altered Beast or other SEGA games, the movie's also trying to appeal general audiences too.
Who knows if any of them would be new Sonic fans later.
At least one of my kid's friend becoming a Sonic fan too after the movie and his favorite part was the dancing scene.
His favorite game is now Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, after playing two players mode with my kid.

That's fair, I just wish I didn't feel cringey with those scenes myself. For example the Siberian tavern was suppose to entertain the general audience, mostly the kids. Because of that I couldn't help but feel "Am I a grown man who is unironically watching a kids movie here?" Y'know, the scariest mid-life crisis question "Am I old?". I know the movie also needs to cater for an audience other than Sonic fans and it's popularity is that it hits well with kids and general audience. I just wish I didn't feel old or outdated whenever there's dancing or flossing.

I think it's not just limited to latest dancing trend and flossing, many things could make feel us old if we let them to.

Sonic 2's Lee Majdoub had a plan to avoid stereotypes in casting

(https://i.ibb.co/3hb4PK1/lee-majdoub-s-1.jpg)

Quote
“Agent Stone got his own poster,” said an excited Majdoub during a phone call he took while strolling around Lost Lagoon recently.
“It was quite emotional. My family is so excited.
I didn’t think my name would be on it and for whatever reason it’s exciting to see your name and for my dad, being Lebanese, the family name means something.
I think in a lot of cultures it means something, but I think for him to see his family name on a poster was incredible,” said Majdoub, who has a long list of TV credits including The 100 and You Me Her.

I think it's not just limited to latest dancing trend and flossing, many things could make feel us old if we let them to.
May be just a kid innocently asking what pager, fax, or betamax is.

Paramount Pictures Home Entertainment’s Sonic the Hedgehog 2 moved up to No. 1 on the U.K’s Official Film Chart on digital sales only.
After being nipped for the top spot last week, the sequel co-starring Jim Carrey, moved past last week’s chart-topper The Batman from Warner Bros. Pictures.
The caped crusader didn’t fall far, landing at the No. 2 spot, thanks to sales on physical formats, including DVD, Blu-ray Disc and 4K UHD Blu-ray Disc.

A Live-Action Pac-Man Film Is In Development From Sonic Producers

(https://i.gifer.com/AS8.gif)

Quote
The plot of the live-action Pac-Man film will be an original idea from Chuck Williams, who was one of the producers of Sega’s Sonic the Hedgehog film.
Of course, those two Sonic films are hugely successful, and the sequel is the highest-grossing video game film adaptation of all time in North America.
So the Pac-Man film is in safe hands, even if we're not totally sure how the story will go.

The Untitled Smurfs Animated Musical has its release date pushed back to make room for Sonic the Hedgehog 3 on the Paramount Pictures calendar.
Paramount made some changes to its release schedule, announcing Sonic the Hedgehog 3 will debut on December 20, 2024.
While that was music to the ears of Sonic fans, the dedicated Smurf stans are now forced to wait until 2025 for the musical to arrive in theaters.

Smurfs has always gotten a raw deal in modern movies. By the time we got a decent Smurfs movie (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smurfs:_The_Lost_Village) it didn't get much recognition.

And if this upcoming Smurf movie is them returning to New York then they might as well shoot themselves in the foot.

Asterix and Obelix has had many movie adaptions and video games based on their comics.

TinTin had one game for the Mega Drive, one movie and a game based after the movie. I don't recall if he had any other games.

(When I was eight years old, I was given a teddy dog as a gift. At the time I really liked TinTin the animated series and thus I named this little stuffed dog "TinTin". I'm 34 years old now and I still can't get good night sleep without my teddy dog TinTin in my arms.)

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 movie plot points and new characters revealed

(https://c.tenor.com/PKcmJCYsERAAAAAC/sonic2-eggman.gif)

Quote
Tails’ Channel claims that two verified anonymous sources have told them “the synopsis was incorrect, and not indicative of Paramount’s current plans for the upcoming theatrical release”.
Here’s my take: This does not invalidate all the information nor does it mean that this information is false. It is likely Production Weekly’s information is from earlier work on the film that has since evolved.
Also, I find it odd that these sources claim the synopsis is incorrect given it is exactly what the Sonic 2 mid-credits scene sets up for a third film, yet they do not confirm or deny the mention of various characters.

And while Schaffer has only had a few cursory meetings about a sequel, he knows who its star should be: Ugly Sonic (voiced by fellow Emmy nominee Tim Robinson), the once-star of the “Sonic the Hedgehog” movie who in the “Rescue Rangers” world is now working with the FBI.
“I love that character,” Schaffer said.
“I’m going to put this out there right now: the ‘LEGO Batman’-style spin-off movie for this movie? Give Ugly Sonic a whole movie.”

I believe Carrey said he wants to retire from acting for good, but he is still committed to Sonic's movie to continue as Robotnik for as long as they need him. Sega said they will respect and not recast Dr. Robotnik if Carrey ever decides to leave the Sonic movies.

Wario is more his own character though.

Another related note, given we've been talking about ninja movies a lot on the Shinobi thread, if you roughly drafted a Shinobi movie for the Sega/Paramount universe, what would it be?

My SCU Shinobi pitch
I've been thinking about it and I figured, what if the Oboro Clan started off as Noh (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noh) performers, or a clan that uses Noh as a means of espionage? The opening of the movie explains the history of the Oboro clan as a Noh theatre performance.
Now days the Oboro Clan serves the NSC (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Security_Council_(Japan)) (maybe Naichō (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabinet_Intelligence_and_Research_Office)) as government owned ninjas.

Joseph Musashi was an orphan taken in by the Oboro Clan by the current clans shuryou Nakahara. Because he was half-American in one of the most traditional ninja clans in America, he was despised by the other students. With only the Nakahara as his sensei looking out for him, he work and train harder to become a ninja.

Then, one night, the Oboro dojo is attacked by Zeed during Nakahara's absence. The school defended them off but not without heavy loss of their women and children. Musashi noticed a masked ninja who seem to have lead the raid on the dojo.

When Nakahara returned he is saddened by the news. He tells the survivors that Zeed were an organization that splintered from the Oboro Clan a long time a go. While Oboro Clan used theatre as a means of intel and espionage, Zeed uses modern media and entertainment for the same methods. (thus ties in why certain cameos from superheroes, movie stars and Godzilla etc).

Spoilers:
Nakahara is actually the leader of Zeed. The Oboro Clan is traditional lead by those of Oboro lineage but Nakahara usurped that role when he found out of the scandal that the shuryou's daughter has fallen in love and had child with an American. Nakahara then killed the shuryou, daughter and father and kept the son close at hand. When Joseph discovers Nakahara was a traitor who killed his family he turns against him and in killing him, ends Zeed. The Oboro Clan then respects him as both jonin and shuryou of the Oboro Clan.
(https://cultsploitation.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/ninja3-2-small.gif)
At least that would be my pitch to the story.

Perhaps for a sequel, Joe Musashi learns of an ancient sword (https://shinobisega.fandom.com/wiki/Akujiki) passed down throughout his family since the founding of the clan and Zeed returns to claim it from him.

For the first part of your story, it followed Hotsuma (PS2) and Jiro Musashi (3DS) more than Joe.
Both of them have their entire clan betrayed and obliterated.
(The difference: the culprit is his master in Jiro's story and childhood friend in Hotsuma's story).
That's not the case for Joe since we know he still has many ninja friends in his Game Gear games.
It's just they're not as "super" as Joe.
Each of them only mastery one weapon.
The Oboro clan still survived until Hotsuma became their leader.

Of course movie version didn't have to follow game version so it's okay to be different.

Well my SCU concept stems from two things:

Post by: Berto on August 25, 2022, 09:31:24 pm
Well my SCU concept stems from two things:
  • I find "Joe" a rather western name. Why would a ninja have the name Joe? Unless he's Caucasian. And while I'm sure non-japanese people can be ninja the box art of Shinobi games depict what look like asian eyes behind that mask. So I can imagine Joe Musashi is actually "Hāfu (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H%C4%81fu)". Not everyone in the Oboro Clan is related to one another, simply those who are loyal to the Oboro Lineage who lead the Oboro Clan. My story proposes that Nakahara usurped the role of 首領 Shuryou (Chief; referred to as 御頭Okashira (Leader)) from the Oboro family after Joe Musashi birth was regarded as a potential scandal or something like that. Not completely heartless, Nakahara kept the young boy and raised him as one of the students of the Oboro Clan under the lie that he was just an orphan. I'm sure Musashi still had other ninja friends growing up but I imagine being half-American made it difficult for him.
  • I chose the Oboro Clan founding story around Noh (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noh) because in the games Shinobi came up against enemies like Spider-man, Batman, Godzilla and Terminator. The reason Batman's involvement was because Sega had the rights to the movie at the time. So what if the Oboro Clan and the splinter faction Zeed still uses the entertainment industry as a form of espionage? With some Zeed ninjas choosing disguise based on movie heroes or weaponized Hollywood studio props and the like?
    It's either that or the Zeed have genin or chunin themed after comic superheroes.

That's a good story if it was based on Revenge of Shinobi.
May be we could see a surprise cameo (like C&D's Ugly Sonic) in the enemy list since they're based on 80/90 popular cultures.

I don't know the real history of Joe other than his father is Jiro Musashi.
If Sarah Krieger is her mother (the unlockable character in 3DS version, the one who worked together with Jiro),
then he is indeed a Hāfu.

Then again Ninja could use fake names.
In Shadow Dancer, Joe also uses these names : Fuma, Takashi, Jo, Hayate.
May be one of those names are the real one and Joe is the fake one.
(In Japanese version Hayate is his son though, not his alias)

Blu-ray Sales: August 14-20: Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was Dropped to Second Number

(https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/961467505535230032/1012652145855713280/Sonic_Week_8-20-2022.png)

Dropping to second place on both charts is the previous week's champion, Paramount Home Media Distribution's Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Sonic-the-Hedgehog-2-4K-Blu-ray/310620/).
The sequel to the surprise 2020 hit film was shot in 2021 and opened in April 2022 to generally positive reviews.
The film topped the box office in its opening weekend with over $72 million and ended up grossing over $190 million domestically and over $401 million worldwide so far, already more than its predecessor made in total.

Then Joseph Musashi could be half-American from his mothers side. His father Jiro was poised to take over as shuryou of the Oboro Clan but his love for Sarah Krieger may or may not be forbidden on account she is American. But their love lead to a hāfu son. Nakahara who was a "loyal" student of Jiro, turned out to be a Zeed ninja and betrays Jiro and kills him and Sarah. Nakahara then takes over as shuryou to the clan and becomes sensei to baby Joe.

Nakahara technically never lied to Joe Musashi. Joe is a half-American orphan who's parents were killed over the scandal. he just never tells him who killed them.

Nakahara technically never lied to Joe Musashi. Joe is a half-American orphan who's parents were killed over the scandal. he just never tells him who killed them.

Actually in the game, Jiro's story is rather complicated.
He couldn't be killed by Nakahara since he's actually a master Shinobi from Kamakura Era that somehow got time travel 800 years to the present time.
After getting close to Sarah (or other woman, it's never officially revealed who Joe's mother is) and had a son (Joe), he's somehow back again to his time to lead the Oboro Clan replacing his dead (traitor) master.
Before going back he entrusted Joe to master Shinobi of the present time, Nakahara.
During the 800 years, the Oboro Clan leaders has changed many times of course until come the peaceful day in the present which makes Nakahara frustated (due lack of ninja's activity) which make him planned the Zeed thing.
Also a trivia : Jiro's Oboro Clan headquarter was on a snowy mountain, that's why the ninjas are wearing white (color of the snow).

(http://segabits.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/Ninjamaster.jpg)

Back to Joe, under Nakahara's guidance since he's a child, Joe became the best Shinobi of the Oboro clan which makes Nakahara proud of him so much.
Joe even found a father figure in Nakahara more than to Jiro who's already missing since he was a baby.
(Trivia : Nakahara's name is a reference to the Musashi-Nakahara Station, to show how close they really are).
That's why Shinobi's final fight is supposed to be a sad story for Joe, also paved a way to the reason for Joe to change his outfit from black to white.
May be he feels closer to his real dad now since both of them were betrayed by their own master.

(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Rrz6KyFEQZY/UR04zvPNzKI/AAAAAAAALXc/v2uBfaYs2d4/s1600/sh29.png)

Interestingly enough, Jiro's also been cloned into a Shadow Master Shinobi (which also trained by Nakahara) and took the leadership of Zeed after Nakahara died.
He also changed the Zeed name into Neo Zeed.
The final boss in Revenge of the Shinobi, the Ninja Master?
He's not the true leader of Neo Zeed.
Two years after Musashi killed him, it is revealed that he was but a mere double for the true mastermind, the Shadow Master.

That's right, the final battle of Shinobi III is between Joe and his father's clone.
Master (Joe became Master Shinobi after he beats and kills Nakahara, replacing Nakahara's position) vs Shadow Master.
Both are Nakahara's pupils.

Of course once again I'm talking about game version, movie version could be different.
Adapting time travel thing for first movie could confuse the viewers so it's making sense to be changed to make it more simple.

It would be confusing. Even I wasn't familiar with such an extensive backstory.

Maybe instead of Nakahara killing Jiro and Sarah... I dunno. Maybe left oblivious? But perhaps Jiro leaves behind winter ninja garb for his son when he's ready, I dunno.

Or may be they're just vanished / not coming back during a mission so they were presumed dead?
But somehow, that kind of story gave me Spider-Man's vibes.

Well, for my take on a Sega Cinematic Universe Shinobi movie, I like the idea of the Oboro Clan being descendants of noh performers turned ninja and the Zeed using the entertainment industry as a form of espionage.

I like the concept of Joe being half-Japanese, half-American. The idea that while he works hard to be a great ninja, he never feels he quite belongs with his own clan.

As for Joe's cinematic origin story let alone Shinobi movie adaption I don't know.

Then the movie could be titled .... Half-American Ninja !
A spinoff of American Ninja.

Teaching the power of friendship's not going to work on Shadow

(https://i.pinimg.com/550x/ba/ef/25/baef2595721afba7c6eb064d73b75085.jpg)

Co-writer Pat Casey revealed Shadow is "driven by anger and revenge" and that Sonic's attempts to befriend Shadow won't go as smoothly as they did with Knuckles.
"Sonic's never had to deal with someone as emotionally damaged like Shadow...when he sees Shadow, he’s like, 'Well, I'll just teach him about the power of friendship, like with Knuckles!' But that's not going to work on Shadow," he told the Green Hill Zone podcast.

Well we know the third movie will be an adaption of Sonic Adventure 2 so we already know what half the next movie will be about. So they probably don't want to spoil anything we don't know about it.

When making an appearance on "The Kelly Clarkson Show", the actor talked about how much fun he had and the interesting effect the small part had on his loved ones.
"My family, like I'm kind of cool because I was on Young and the Restless.
I was on Criminal Minds, and now I'm on S.W.A.T.
But 28 years in the game, I now have officially arrived, in my family because I'm on Sonic the Hedgehog."
