  1. Not sure if I’d call it a bomb personally, but considering it barely showed up in any sales charts across the world (did it even chart at all in the NPD sales?) I’m not sure it did that well. Still strange to think that this a Mario & Sonic Olympics game about a summer games event that isn’t even happening this year. o_o
  2. Oh sheesh those lizard designs. Glad they changed them to echidnas, because that would’ve clashed really badly with Sonic’s cartoony redesign. Longclaw still kept her original design though... Urgh, that reminds me I really want to see Longclaw again. Wouldn’t even mind seeing her in Sonic media outside the movie, but I doubt that will ever happen. D=
  3. Damn, pretty impressive that it has surpassed Detective Pikachu in the domestic box office but worldwide isn’t looking likely what with the Coronavirus and all. Still, a great success considering the low budget and poor merchandising (seriously I haven’t seen any Sonic movie books around, where are they??). I’m surprised Paramount hasn’t made an announcement for a sequel, but it could be because of the virus.

  6. Animal Crossing New Horizons looks AMAZING holy shit I can’t wait take my money Nintendo! 

  7. There’s no way this movie grosses 1 BILLION at the box office. No other video game movie adaptation has done that before, with Warcraft currently being the highest grossing worldwide closely followed by Detective Pikachu. It’s still going to do well, especially considering its fairly low budget (which the former two did not have!) and the lack of movie merchandise which probably saved them pennies, but not THAT well lol I think that’s the point though since this is Sonic’s origin story. This is before he meets Tails, Knuckles etc. so he’s still like a young hyperactive teenager with no friends, and naturally because he has no friends he’s lonely and sad. Hey, at least he’s not crying like in the Archie comics..! This also makes him way more animated and personality driven than the games, especially the recent ones. Sonic is such a bore in Sonic Forces!
  8. So I finally saw the Sonic movie tonight! After that horrible teaser trailer from last year, it was...certainly not bad. Pretty good actually! o_o 7/10 movie? First the negatives! Some of the humour fell flat for me (toilet humour, Sonic flossing...) and the product placement made me roll my eyes. I also felt that the middle of the film was the weakest part as it seemed like a very short journey to San Francisco for a “road trip” movie. Music was meh as well... The rest was enjoyable enough though! Visually the movie looks nice, and what little action scenes there are, are done well enough. The human cast of characters were decent, of course Jim Carrey was great and super OTT as Dr Robotnik and Sonic was really good, probably the best thing in this movie actually along with Robotnik (except for some cheesy pop culture references!). WAY more personality than the current games and his voice has grown on me too, in fact I love Ben Schwartz’s take on Sonic and I want to hear him in the games next! XD Oh and Sonic’s design in this is so so SO much better now. GG Tyson Hesse. And the mid credits scene!! Unlike Detective Pikachu I really want to see a sequel now, and knowing how well it’s doing at the box office currently I hope it’ll be announced soon! Also, it was an awesome surprise to see
  9. A user on ResetERA called PiPSmallie, who apparently works in the movie industry, says the leaked picture is real and that we can expect a new trailer next Monday. Whoop! As for my opinion regarding the new design, it’s obviously WAY better than the original! He actually looks like Sonic from the games, wears gloves and looks more appealing too (cute actually!). Still not a fan of the blue arms though, but eh.
  10. I don’t care if movie!Sonic has mono eyes or not, they just need to big and expressive. One of my biggest issues with the initial design for movie!Sonic was that his eyes were too small and barely showed any emotion, especially in the scene where he screams. He’s supposed to look scared, but he really doesn’t! >< Hopefully this will be one of the things they improve, along with his mouth, head and hands (we know that he will have gloves at least). As for when the final design will be revealed, it’ll likely be before the end of 2019 since the movie comes out on Valentine’s Day next year, that’s only 5 months from now. Might be revealed in a final trailer or poster.
  11. I’m...surprised they’re actually going to take time to delay the movie to February next year in order to improve Sonic’s design. That’s good, but I don’t think it’s going to change the fact that the story, humour and overall look of the film will still most likely end up being mediocre. Does a better looking Sonic really make a better movie? Also, all of the marketing has to be changed now; merchandise, posters, everything has to be updated with the new Sonic design! That’s going to cost money, so add the merchandising cost and now extra time on CGI, possibly reshoots as well...the Sonic movie is probably going to end up costing more than it’s original budget of $90 million. If this ends up doing average numbers at the box office, there definitely won’t be a sequel.
  12. Thankfully we (me and my partner) didn’t see the trailer in front of Detective Pikachu, but we’re from the UK so...we got lucky there! We liked Detective Pikachu btw. Not great, but it was a fun, cute video game movie which was very faithful to the Pokémon world and of course the Pokémon designs and the way they behaved was great! I still think the only positive thing in the Sonic movie will be Jim Carrey hamming it up as...himself. XD
  13. Welp. Guess that means we’ll see little if any changes to Sonic’s design. =| The director’s comment seems to be working though since everybody is straight away thinking they’ll make real drastic changes!
  14. I’d be very impressed if they manage to redesign Sonic so quickly, what with only 6 months left until the movie comes out! Unless it’s minor changes like making the eyes bigger, I dunno. I just hope the CG animators aren’t going to crunch on this.. =/ perhaps they will delay it instead.
  15. Not sure if this had been posted yet. Created by Jump_Button on ResetEra. So far I think this is the best fan edit I’ve seen because the bigger, more expressive eyes give Sonic so much more character. Also, bigger hands and fangs instead of weird human teeth.
  16. I just cannot believe how different the Detective Pikachu and Sonic teaser trailers are from eachother, at complete opposite ends of the spectrum. Even if you do not care for the live action Pokémon designs in the movie, you cannot deny that they look FAR superior to whatever the hell they have done with Sonic. Besides additional detail and textures to make them fit into the real world, they stay true to the originals. Their silhouettes are exactly like the game versions and even the way they act is the same. Just look at this trailer! Again, say what you will about the actual designs but the people behind Detective Pikachu put a lot of care and attention to detail into these Pokémon designs. And that’s pretty great! Sonic the hedgehog on the other hand does not stick to his recognisable silhouette shape and comes off looking really creepy and...naked, due to his lanky body and skinny legs. Don’t even get me started on the face! The eyes, the mouth and the teeth. It looks SO wrong! He isn’t cute (IMO), nor charming, nor very relatable. It’s so ugly. Sure he’s got his super speed, but even that might not be like the games according to the Reddit plot details. If the Sonic movie can’t make their own bloody main character appealing, then you fail!
  17. This looks absolutely horrendous, bland, unfunny and I honestly don’t think there is anything positive to say about Sonic’s design. The claws on his fingers, the naked, skinny legs and body...ewww it’s just super unappealing to me! Imagine what Tails and Knuckles would’ve looked like?! Thank God they’re not around..also, not a big fan of Ben Schwartz’s voice. It seems off for some reason. I guess the only somewhat decent thing about this was Jim Carrey as Dr Robotnik, but even that seems too typical crazy Jim Carrey shtick. I chuckled a bit but more in disbelief than cos it was genuinely funny. I’ll be seeing Detective Pikachu on the big screen in two weeks. This though? Never!
  18. Reminds me of the reaction to Ghostbusters Answer the Call. If you didn’t like the trailer, which was at the time (still is I think??) the most disliked video on YouTube, then you MUST be a sexist hater! You MUST hate women! Yeah, just because it was an all-female Ghostbusters cast, not a fucking awful looking movie with terrible SNL-style humour and way too much CGI. Oh, and guess what? It wasn’t a very good movie and it disappointed at the box office, so much so that they’re making an actual successor to the original two Ghostbuster movies, not a sequel to the reboot! Anyway if we are going to get the trailer for the Sonic movie in a week or so...for real, then I’m anxiously waiting for it. I doubt it will change my mind though about the quality they’re aiming for and God forbid I’m called a “hater” for not liking the tone, humour, Sonic’s ugly design etc.
  19. So we should definitely get a teaser trailer at CinemaCon right? WB released one for Joker today, which is coming in October this year, and it seems we’re expecting something tomorrow for Sonic. Oh boy..!
  20. That was good! The animation was cool and I loved Big’s scene where he’s crossing over to the stall with Froggy merch, it was cute! Might have to get a Froggy t shirt too. X3 I wish it wasn’t just two shorts though...and not all based on the racing game.
  21. Lol no movie news. So when are we getting a teaser trailer then? There’s some kind of reward show happening soon right, Kids Choice Awards or something. Anyway, this panel was meh. Some cool stuff like new TSR gameplay footage and the short was really good, but omg this Q&A is so cringe I think I’ll have to switch it off now good lord @_@
  22. Wow, that customisation trailer was really good. The game looks a lot better than last year, although there seems to be some lag? Hope that’s not in the final game. The music is amazing as always!!
  23. Ughhhh that Final Egg remix is GUUUD!

  24. Expecting some new gameplay footage for TSR (finally!), more info on the new animated series, some comic info...maybe the teaser trailer for the Sonic movie or a tease for Sonic’s next 3D game? Keeping my expectations low on that front though; for the latter, due to some mentioning here how it might not be a great idea to show a trailer in front of a live audience (imagine the reactions..!), the latter because, well, I have my doubts.
  25. I dunno, some of the things mentioned in that so called leak sound completely stupid, making it hard for me to believe it. But if it ends up being true, well...uh, damn. 8[
