That's typical origin story stuff...is not surprising.

As long as it's not too on the nose, whatever.

I’ll take the origin story/character building thing. 

To be fair I’ve been a massive fan of Jim for 25 years and I’m gonna be super biased here 😂 I’m just glad to see my favourite actor in my favourite video game characters movie playing my favourite villain.

He sounds evil already, but not mad scientist evil...

So again...it might just be a visual change, not a character one.

Throughout teh movie a set of convenient things will happen that make him look more accurate, that will pretty much never be taken seriously...so they gotta do dat good.

I got away from the forum for an hour to watch GoT and this gets revealed!!

Anyway...

Awesome! I'm on board! Plus we know he'll be big moustache bald Eggman by the end of the movie anyway. No qualms from me here. Can't fucking wait for the trailer! 😁😁😁😁😁

Not entirely true. People see Iron Man because Downey is playing him. He is what made that character popular. Take Downey out of the equation and lose the major attracting factor.

My therapist is a big fan of Iron Man. I'm pretty sure he would watch an Iron Man movie regardless of who played him.

Okay, for the seventeenth time, enough of this shit. Arguing about whether design choices are for the greater good of the general audience have historically gone absolutely fucking nowhere in this thread and I've been long convinced that you in particular get a kick out of riling people up when you say stuff like this. Stop bringing up the marketability of the character designs or overall movie direction in this thread, and for fuck's sake stop sucking Paramount's dick over every creative choice they make while acting like people who expect otherwise are being unreasonable, or we're going to finally put our foot down on your gaslighting antics.

This is a very grey line that you have drawn. People are attacking the design, I'm defending it in the most logical way possible. Am I not allowed to do that? Gaslighting/riling people up -- So am I suppose to not react to other posts in this thread? How exactly am I suppose to reply/respond to the majority of opinions here? All I said was that "There's a story reason for why he looks the way he does" and that's the truth.  I'm trying to "rile" people up by stating what has already been confirmed. Isn't that the nature of discussing in itself? No personal attacks are being had, no condescending points are being made. I am genuinely confused. I feel like I'm walking on eggshells here (no pun intended). 

 

The type of discussions you don't want are not clearly defined and very vague

Why don't you stop "defending" the design?

If you think you should, you're just not very good at it.

Why don't you instead talk about...what you like about it, about how even though it's different you like it's compromises, how maybe you like it regardless of what other people think?

That's way more interesting than seeing someone try and fail to defend design decisions other people don't like...specifically because other people don't like it.

It's pretty annoying to see people complain all the time, but it's even more annoying to see people complain...and then see someone interject with "Well I actually like this."

"There's a story reason for why he looks the way he does"

Wrong.

The writers do not just write the script without any kind of direction, and hand it off to the director to shrug their shoulders and sigh and say, "Well, it's a shame you wrote him not looking like Eggman, but it's in the story now so we can't change it."  The story is this way because they wanted Carrey to look like Carrey.  With a moustache.  If they had wanted him to look like Eggman from the beginning, he would have because they would have ordered the story to be written differently.

You want to know what a story reason for Eggman's appearance would look like?  Go look at the games.  Bald head, fat belly, giant moustache.  That's the story which should have been restricting them.

(Also, the filmmakers managed to make Carrey look completely different three different ways for the 2004 Lemony Snicket movie, and his poster look was bald.)

Since Sonic's design looked awful in all the leaked material, I expected Robotnik to look really bad as well. I'm actually surprised Jim Carrey doesn't look...terrible?

Like, I won't deny that he looks more like someone trying to do a cheap cosplay of Eggman, but I can kinda see this kind of Robotnik work for an origin story this movie is trying to make. Kinda.

Japanese Sonic movie website is up: https://sonic-movie.jp/

Gnarly! Is it just my phone, or is it just the poster for now?

[I recently (temporarily!) moved back to the the UK from Tokyo. If there's one positive from leaving Japan it's that at least I don't have to wait until May 2020 for this movie!!]

The sonicthehedgehogmovie.com site now redirects to Paramount's Facebook page, for some reason.

The other day it just redirected to Paramount.com.

Your phone is right.  But it's interesting that the site is up at all...

Trying to come up with a witty comment but nope...got nothing.

I think it was already noted that porn parodies are more faithful to the source material.

I'd rather have the Sonic 2006 Eggman design back. At least that was somewhat close.

I'm deleting some posts but I want to make clear as well that this thread is not the place to continue arguing with moderation because you want to equate any time we step in as trying to quash any positive discussion about the movie. If you feel that way, you'd best take it up privately with Chris. We're not doing this shit anymore just because two or three people don't like that their opinion isn't being validated by the majority who have looked at the exact same information (or even across the aisle at Detective Pikachu) and aren't happy about the direction of this movie.

Further posts trying to make this an issue will be deleted. End of discussion.

 

 

And while I'm here there's a handful of people just posting clamoring for the trailer. This is coming across as spammy and is being deleted if I see it too. Just wait. Posts should be more substantial.
