Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules) "Gangsters Paradise is on Page 380)

Recommended Posts

My predictions:

Movie opens with a documentary telling the illustrious career of Dr. Robotnik and all his advances in the field of science. He has become embroiled with controversy by animal rights activists after it was discovered that he has experimented on animals. He recently finished a series of military robots that he plans to use in the war on terror, hoping to quadruple his profits by selling them to the US Government.

His latest device is his most brillant yet. A CERN style supercollider which can open the door to new worlds, new dimensions. Infinite possibilities. His assistant Stone has doubts however, fearing it may bankrupt the company and if malfunctions, could have catasrophic results. Robotnik ignores him and sets up a test run in a room filled with lab technicans.

A portal opens, and something pops up on one of the monitors. A heat signature of a spiky creature. The room begins vibrating, and the power goes haywire. The technicans beg Robotnik to shut it off, but he refuses.

Sonic jumps through the portal, sending Robotnik flying backward onto a generator, electrocuting him. We see the shadowy shilouette of Sonic as he gets to his feet, standing in front of the glowing portal.

Government agents storm the area, telling everyone to freeze. Sonic takes off running. Agents fire at Sonic, hitting some pipes which shoot steam (another quick glimpse of Sonic's shilouette as he dashes through the steam)

Sonic escapes. The room is destroyed. Robotnik is half dead.

Green Hills, North Dakota. Local Police Officer Tom Wachowski is dating a schoolteacher and wants to pop the question, but can't afford a ring. A grocery store owner call him to investigate a case of vandalism. Aisles are overturned and food is littered everywhere. 'Who would do such a thing?' Tom asks.

Cut to a day prior. Sonic sneaks in the store and begins chowing down on some food. He eats a chili dog for the first time and loves it, eating a bunch of chili dogs on display, washing it down with slushies, causing him to have a high speed sugar rush, devouring everything in sight.

A local citizen whom the residents nickname 'Crazy Carl' says he saw a blue hedgehog speeding through town the other night. Tom rolls his eyes and is called into the station. He thinks he got the promotion, but another cop gets it instead.

Meanwhile, Robotnik awakens in the hospital being interrogated by Government Agent (Neal McDonough) saying that his device is a threat to humanity and he unleashed an alien lifeform onto the public. He tells Robotnik that he's going to jail but Robotnik strikes a deal saying he will get the hedgehog back, in exchange for his freedom. The government agent agrees. After he leaves the room, Stone explains that the Government seized all of Robotnik's tech, including the military robots he was planning to make billions from. They plan to deccomission all of his life's work. This infuriates Robotnik.

Green Hills. One night, Tom and his partner Wade, sit in a cop car parked behind the big 'Welcome to Green Hills' billboard, looking for speeding motorists and talking about life. Sonic flies down the street and Tom gives chase, crashing his cop car into a lightpost. He gets a brief glimpse of Sonic on the hood of his car before dashing off.

Tom is fired for property damage and becomes a laughingstock to the town with his story of a speeding blue hedgehog. Tika suggests taking a break. A depressed Tom returns home to see Sonic rummaging his kitchen. Suddenly, Robotnik and Stone knock at the door, wanting to hear more about this blue hedgehog.

Tom hides Sonic and Robotnik leaves. Sonic gives his backstory to Tom about how he needs to get back to his world. 100% CGI flashback of Sonic's world, with cameos by Tails and Knuckles. 

For whatever reason, Sonic needs to get to San Fransisco (maybe use one of Robotnik's devices to travel home) Tom agrees, roadtrip.

Robotnik is basically the Dick Dastardly of the movie, trailing Tom & Sonic the whole way. Comical sceme in a bar where Sonic unintentionally pisses off some bikers leading to a big brawl (IMDB lists 'rowdy bar folk member' and 'line dancer')

Sonic and Tom bond on their journey.

At one point, Robotnik bribes Tom to hand over Sonic, offering to put in a good word at Green Hills PD and give him his job back, and also the money for Tika's ring. Tom accepts and gives Sonic to Robotnik. 

Tom returns to Green Hills but has a change of heart. Tom takes Wally with him to rescue Sonic from Robotnikcorp.

Sonic is being tortured, similar to Unleashed's opening, when Tom frees him and Wally arrests Robotnik. Robotnik says he already got what he wanted: Sonic's DNA. Metal Sonic appears and flies off to the armory, activating Robotnik's horde of military robots who attack the city. 

Something something, big fight on the streets of LA, as the portal sends various game characters like Tails, Knuckles, etc. to help the fight against the robots. Sonic defeats Robotnik and Metal Sonic, gives Tom a ring from the games to give to Tika and returns home through the portal, taking Robotnik with him. Tom and Tika get married. Tom is promoted to Sheriff.

Idk.

 

 

 

 

Yeah, I'm probably wrong, just tossing ideas out there.

Sounds like the typical Hollywood to me.  We all know that we here in the west have no balls anymore.

Sorry but I disagree. There have been various reports about the movie (by Junkie XL) saying that it has a lot of personality. Maybe, just maybe it could mean Sonic movie breaks (finally) this cliché genre? That's my biggest hope. Because honestly I wouldn't want to see yet another boring cartoon creature befriending a random human in a live action world, this can't be the Whole movie, it has to add something… personality.

Nice! Sounds like I could see a plot like this in the movie. Oh BTW, isn’t Green Hills confirmed to be located in Montana, not North Dakota?

Can we talk about what this slate board is setting on top of?

 

 

Interesting....

Alan Menken, who was the head of the music department for certain movies such as Beauty the Beast and the Little Mermaid, is composing a "Kids Chorus."

Go check out the Cast and Crew on the imdb page.

You might find something interesting.

 

A lot of passion was put into this movie it seems.

Filming ended over 4 months ago.... we should have something by now.

So, one Spanish Sonic fan asked Paramount Spain about the trailer release date. I can’t read this. So, here is some rough translation of what they respond.:

Hello ____ we can not give you exact date but soon you will have news!

I'm guessing SXSW is when we'll get the news.

I think Paramount is going to unveil the trailer on their twitter page. SXSW is such a low budget operation. 

That, or the first teaser will be shown during the Kids Choice Awards.

I don’t know. Maybe like this? Someone drew this.

He also drew Silver in movie style.:

 
He also speculate what Sonic could looked like.:
 

 

Those are really cool!

Frozen 2 just had a trailer and that comes out two weeks after the Sonic movie.

I have a feeling that was Disney doing damage control. They had just released a trailer that bombed earlier in the week (Aladdin) and they had to save face, so released a trailer for a film that will probably do well. They did the same when Toy Story 4's trailer was ignored. Sonic doesn't have to do that yet.

I don't think we should trust that guy. I saw this guy spam the same tweet to certain amount of people. Many people accused him of lying. I also saw one person accusing him of being a bot, which he denied that he is one.

He could be lying, idk. There WERE test screenings two weeks ago and he does say in the comments that he 'wishes he was joking'

Possible. 

Anyway, do you think we will get a trailer tomorrow? I'm not sure, but it's highly unlikely. We would have a trailer release date announced by now. I guess we will have to see.
