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

Recommended Posts

So, bad news for Australians who are looking forward to watching the movie. It had been delayed to April 9th. However, fortunately for people who lived in Victoria and Queensland will get to see it earlier before the rest of Australia do. This is probably likely due to the Australian school holidays and the difference in the school calendar for each state.

An old argument, but now that the trailer is out, and we have more information...I still think this is Sonic 1.

The fact that this is an origin story (which people forget that Sonic 1 was when Robotnik and Sonic first met), the fact that Greenhill is introduced here, AND I AM NOT SAYING THAT AS A MEME (I previously brought up Greenhill to defend this point, a mod would tell me to stop because they thought I was joking). The fact that animals/the environment plays an important role in this film, the fact that Sonic is 15 years old, and him and Robotnik are the only characters from the games here...this is clearly Sonic 1. They probably didn't add in Choas Emeralds because they either want to to evolve that into another movie, or they didn't want it to look like they were ripping off the infinity stones to general audiences.

Making sense here.

I think it makes sense as their first meeting. I mean you have to start somewhere, right?

Does it? Robotnik using animals as a power source (badniks) seems to have been replaced by Sonic's quills.

Considering that I live in Australia, this is horrible news to me. 1 month and a half after the US release. Sigh. 

 

I'm just so broken and run down over this whole ordeal. It's just been a bummer. 

 

Also I have given up hope that we will see the re-design at comic-con. It's not going to happen folks....

Sorry man. :/

We've come this far. The movie is filmed, the redesign is finished, just gotta be patient. Hopefully that next trailer will blow us away.

Dora releases August 6th. It's a long shot, but maybe we'll get a trailer then.

Thank you for the support my friend. 

 

I do not think we will see anything until October regarding the new design. The trailer should arrive in November. 

 

We still have ways to go :(

You’re probably right. I think it’s still a bit too early for them to reveal the design. It’s been like a few months, since the redesign announcement. Tim Miller mentioned on the recent interview that he had seen it. They were probably not ready to reveal it yet. They probably want to make the redesign a surprise. 

I think it’s safe to say that there probably won’t likely be anything related to the movie shown at Comic Con. Paramount probably already done shown what they were going to show. They show Top Gun: Maverick and Terminator: Dark Fate. So, that’s probably all the things they were going to show there.

So, I guess the waiting game continues.

Here is an old interview with James Marsden.

Isn't Sonic going to be at Comic Con this year too though? Probably nothing related to the movie, but is anything going on?

Yea. I think these were the only Sonic related things that were announced there. So, unfortunately, no movie related news revealed at Comic Con. BTW, unrelated to the topic, these look actually pretty cool.:

It is an understandable mistake, albeit still fallacious, to assume that just because Sonic 1 is the first time we see Sonic and Dr. Robotnik that it must also have been the first time the characters ever met as well.  But in reality, many shows, movies, and games begin with the status quo, rather than with an introduction.  Both AoSTH and SatAM's pilot episodes are a good example of this.  That said, many other media properties outright don't even bother with a "how they met" story.  And I doubt that Sega even thought that far ahead when they were making Sonic 1.

That doesn't mean that the movie won't be taking some inspiration from Sonic 1.  It is always possible they could be re-purposing elements of Sonic 1 to work as as a first encounter story.  But if that is what they're planning, then they're going to have to take many creative liberties in order to make it work.

If Jim Carrey pilots some sort of aircraft with a giant wrecking ball, I'll give everyone in these forums a high five.

It won't happen.

Ben Schwartz on the redesign.:

“I can say that I’m very excited,” Schwartz told IGN during our Comic Con live stream.. “I haven’t seen the final thing yet, but I’m very excited. Because of the fans, they’re changing it, and I think it’s going to be great. The way it seems to be going, I think people are going to be really excited. It’s incredible to me that the fans spoke, and the people at Paramount, Jeff Fowler, our producers all listened and said ‘hey, you know, we can do this.’ So something special is coming.”
