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

Recommended Posts

So, remember about that guy who had reported that the redesign is not an 180 turn, but will make the audience happy? This is what he had say about how did he managed to see the redesign. He also described a little bit of detail of how the redesign Sonic will look like.

BTW, the Sonic Movie Twitter account had update the banner.:

1080x360

Took them long enough to update the twitter page.

Hmmm.. Could this mean something is incoming? Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw releases next week.. Paramount constantly references 'Fast & the Furious' in all of its marketing materials and posters for the movie..

New Trailer? Maybe? Please?

Yea. I’m really surprised it’s took them this long to update the date. Also, I noticed that the international versions of the movie accounts like the Japanese Twitter account and the British Facebook account haven’t updated their dates yet. However, I’m sure they will update them soon.:

Maybe they will release an official reveal video of the redesign Sonic?

So how many people do you think saw the trailer? Between 2 or 3 YouTube channels (Paramount, Movie Clips and other dubs), the Sonic Movie Twitter, Paramount's Facebook, and at theatres? It could be over 100 mil who saw the blue gremlin.

This might be unrelated and probably not mean anything. So, this was shown at a official fan meeting held by Sega in Japan. It’s appear that Sonic is wearing the Puma Shoes that was seen in the trailer.

This is cute. Hope this is somewhat true.

I still can't believe this trailer has more views than a lot of movies including Star Wars IX (I know it was just a teaser, but still)… weird world. And people say it's just because of the shitty design, which means (if true) that the movie only has a chance to be successful if it sucks… that's just tragic, I want it to be both a decent movie and seen at theatres. But it's probably true, negative attention is probably best attention.

Still, if it wasn't for all those views and dislikes, the redesign would be just that… a dream.

So, I discovered these.:

Translation: So that would be the toy toppers with Sonic from the movie, which are usually sold in cinemas (theaters). Most likely, they will not see the light in connection with the decision to change the design of Sonic in the film.

Great find! Shame they will never see the light of day...

Yea, thanks. I think the toy toppers will probably see the day of light. Just not with the original design. They will just replace it with the redesign one.

The Instagram page just updated with the correct release date of February 2020.

Also, the Sonic movie twitter page unpinned the trailer.
 



..Something's happeniiiiing. (Ever notice that EVERY poster for the Sonic Movie & the trailer itself mentions 'Fast & the Furious'? Guess what comes out this Friday?)

Anyone else think those prototypes, while still looking naff, looked better than what we saw in the trailer? Lol

Also, I agree. Something seems to be happening with this movie. Expecting something new imminently. 6 1/2 months from the rescheduled re-release, right? They need to get those posters up now so I expect we will see the design sooner rather than later.

Any stylization of the design will look better because it isn't attempting to be hyper-realistic, and it's based off an already great design.

The merchandising also makes use of mostly primary colors with very little shading or lighting, simply because they're easier to paint that way, which is another reason it looks slightly better.  This isn't a GOOD design philosophy, in my opinion, but it's better to use a simple color scheme that's effective (which as a side effect, does make him look closer to his counterpart in the games) than it is to use a complex color scheme that's nauseating.

With that said, these still look pretty awful because of the design's just lanky and awkward proportions, the vacant facial expression, and their attempts to texture Sonic's quills which just looks like a bad molding rather than a deliberate design choice.

That/they are absolutely horrific.

I doubt anything is coming up. Not until late October in my opinion. 

Actually I'd say as early as next month or the end of August. We know that the redesign has been in development even before the trailer released, and next month would be 6 months before the film releases (which is normal).
