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

Recommended Posts

This movie has a better chance at box office now though. If it had released in November, Frozen 2 and potentially Terminator would have overshadowed it completely. Not only that but Star Wars is coming out the next month. There's like nothing coming out in February 2020 that people badly want to see, and because we're in an era where original ideas aren't as popular (unfortunately), and Sonic is an iconic character, I'd say more than likely it's going to do well in terms of people seeing it. At least for the month it's at schedule for.

 

I remember last February, Alita Battle Angel got overshadowed in the US because of movies like How To Train Your Dragon and The LEGO Movie 2 (which also didn't do well in box office, but was still doing better than Alita in the US). Sonic is probably going to overshadow everything else.

February has Peter Rabbit 2 and Birds of Prey the week before Sonic, Kingsman prequel the same day as Sonic and Call of the Wild the week after. Its not as strong as the November competition was but it should be enough to bury Sonic.

I think Sonic will get pushed to March, I really do...

Looking at March it would be between a Pixar film and live action Mulan.

There's Godzilla vs. Kong too, I believe.

I'm sorry Sonic movie, but that's much more badass. 😎

If they hadn't delayed the movie this would have been the competition releasing on the same day.

 

I'd rather watch that to be honest. For one, it's not a horrible clash of styles, it doesn't seem to have character designs that are nightmare fuels, and it's not a "video game movie that went in a horribly wrong direction despite all the potential". Seems like it could be an okay movie.

Whoa, that actually looks kinda like a decent movie. The art style is pretty cute! I can dig it. Well the story itself seems fairly generic and forgettable, but at least it isn't the lame type of story the Sonic movie is doing... Hm how come I never heard about this movie before now? Did they run out of advertisement money? Hahaaha~

First time I heard about it too. At least finally something good has come out of this whole Sonic movie madness.

Peter Rabbit II won’t be able to bury the film. Remember the backlash of the first?

Actually it has a 62% on Rotten Tomatoes. It wasn't a great film, but it wasn't terribly bad either. I just think Sonic will beat Peter Rabbit II because it's something we've seen before now. People probably won't care about another sequel. Remember how bad The LEGO Movie 2 did in box office? Sonic is at least something we haven't seen on the big screen yet.

Yuji Naka’s response to the date change on the Bridge poster.:

Translation: "It seems like the date on the Sonic the Movie's poster was updated, but Sonic is unchanged. Maybe it's impossible to change the design after all. If they are for example only going to change his face but not his legs, it would make him unbalanced again. Since it costs money to print posters, they could have done it after they changed Sonic's design."

Maybe this is just temporary to remind people that the movie will be released next year.

Yeah, I also think so 🙂 I think only the new date was printed and glued over the old one 🙂 So the poster remained as nothing else needed to change at that time 😉

They look like a small distributor that buys up things that bigger companies don't want and puts them out to make whatever money they can.

Supposed image from a supposed test screening of a shot that was from the trailer. Might be fake, and likely from prior to the redesign announcement if it is real. 

 

This seem to be from an early test screening according to the leak. I don’t know this looks kinda edit.
