Also, somebody made a better version of the poster. Would you guys prefer this, if this was the real one.:

 

I actually find that to be a big improvement.  Because the proportions are no longer human, then there's no longer the same uncanny valley effect; even the legs being absurdly far apart doesn't seem quite so ridiculous.  It looks more like a cartoon character with a live-action backdrop rather than a weirdly mutated and unfashionable human.

At worst it's going to be a movie that's fun to riff on. I just hope it isn't boring is the problem now. 

At worst, it’s gonna be a video game film that, like 98% of the others, is shit with few positive things to discuss. At best, it’ll be bad/painfully meh, but forgettable and won’t drag the franchise any lower. Like, I honestly don’t see how people are actually more optimistic for a Sonic film vs other game films, when the games can’t even find decent footing.

For the people who want Knuckles in the first movie, I don’t think he should be in it. Let me explain:

So since the movie is live action. They’re most likely going to retell the sonic story; a reboot of sorts, and when you reboot something you have to show the characters and their motives again.

Think about this if you put in knuckles you have to explain the master emerald, and you wouldn’t explain the master emerald unless it’s a main part of the story, and if it is the main part of the story, wouldn’t it feel like to much to introduce the master emerald in the first movie?

Knuckles would make more sense in sequel in my opinion.

OK, I just wanted to get that off my chest.

The budget to make it probably would have ran too high for the studio to take a gamble on, but I'd prefer to see a live-action Sonic movie in the style of Guardians Of The Galaxy - fully embraces the source material and is visually gorgeous. It takes place entirely on Planet Mobius, brings many of the classic zones from the game to life, has a good library of supporting characters (I'd leave Knuckles & Amy out of this first one, though) and the only human character in the film is Carrey's Robotnik.

I might feel a bit let down by the design that was teased last month, but despite that, I'm still excited for the movie. 

Oh, BTW, I create a thread for my artwork. If anybody would like to check out or post any of their work there, feel free to do anything there..:

Found this fan made version of the poster. This could give us a closer look of how Sonic could look like in the movie.:

People are saying that SEGA is opting for a live-action movie for Sonic instead of a fully animated movie because they’re lazy and don’t want to put actual effort into making a fully CGI animated Sonic movie that can be as good as Unleashed’s CGI. While I completely agree with those people, a fully Unleashed style CGI animated Sonic movie is not impossible.

SEGA still has Marza Animation Planet, the animation studio that has animated CGI cutscenes for various Sonic games, including Sonic Unleashed. SEGA still has the resources and talent to make a fully CGI animated Sonic movie, but of course, since SEGA and Sonic Team are run by brain-dead hacks, they decided that making a live-action movie with Sonic-Man from Sonic 06 would be a much better idea and would totally do better both critically and financially than a fully CGI animated Sonic movie from an animation studio that reached Pixar levels of animation quality 10 years ago, right?

I pray that this movie bombs.

1. Paramount decided on a live action / CGI hybrid. They're the ones making all the decisions, not SEGA or Sonic Team.

2. Marza Animation Planet is working on the film alongside Blur Studios.

3. Live action / CGI takes just as much effort as a pure CGI film.

 

Blame Paramount and their pattern of terrible live action / CGI adaptations of classic franchises for this kind of schlock.

Apparently, a lot of adult moviegoers and movie critics have a bias against animation, and being able to see a cast consisting mostly of live humans helps sell a film to them.  At least that is the only reason I can think of why this is a good idea.

Having said all that, I am assuming that if they went for a full CGI animated film, they'd take heavily after the plots of the current games.  I am not sure that is ideal.

No doubt they're going to market the shit out of the movie with as many toys as possible.

Oh boy..can't wait to see the nightmarish toys this will result in.

It also makes me wonder whether there's gonna be a tie-in video game for this..since apparently SEGA is not happy with the design of Sonic to begin with, would they even greenlit such a thing? Do they think creating another subsection for the game franchise is a good idea?
