Or maybe Sonic Drive-In? Well, you know they had chili dogs, and that probably might be a perfect opportunity for them to partner with Paramount Pictures. They did toys before, like these.:

Oh, on an unrelated note, Paramount Pictures which is the distributor of the movie, actually did partner with Sonic before, a few years ago.:

I frequently get commercials for Sonic (The restaurant) before videos about Sonic (The Hedgehog), though that's probably just some automated result of SEO.

Also, if we do get a collaboration, please don't give those two hipsters in the car a cameo in this movie.  Unless it's a car Sonic the Hedgehog knocks flying while speeding through San Francisco; then I would tolerate it.

Fingers crossed that we get a reveal today. 

Agreed.  Even if we don't, though, I'm interested in seeing what Jakks has in store for the series.  Not necessarily optimistic based on the first previews, though.

I wonder if we'll get McDonald's or Burger King toys for the movie lmao (if anyone else says "ew", "I wouldn't want them to support such a horrible fast food place", I already said it for you, even though I personally don't care if they do that).

Perfect opportunity for a movie-tie in game.

The movie releases in November. Trailers are usually released closer to the movie’s release date. 

Even so, a teaser would at least be nice.

Sorry to disappoint guys, but it looks like the only Sonic toy Jakks is showing off is a pinball game.

Edit:

 

They totally did

I'm guessing they're still going to show some stuff. The We already knew about the Pinball set

Link doesn't work to me. Anyway, let's wait until someone posts the line up, any attenders here? 

Still, I assume that movie merch will be for press only, behind closed doors.

100% true, I keep saying this.

Be patient. We're likely not getting a trailer until a couple of months (probably May).

So according to Wikipedia, this film has been in post-production for quite a while now. so where's a trailer? this actually makes it hard to defend this movie.

Wait until May.

I wonder if they have a sequel in mind? Or whether they just planned the movie as a one off? 🤔 Too early to tell I suppose. 

I think Paramount said they want to turn it into a franchise. Depends I guess, if screenings and buzz are positive, they could be working on a sequel immediately, like with Pikachu they are already confident it's good they are working on another movie, a direct sequel. So... I would say let's wait until box office news.

That's interesting, I didn't know that. So hopefully with that in mind they really have put a lot of time and effort into setting up the sonic universe in the film. 

I think they did! Although it's early to say, I think the crew and producers, actors really believe in the movie. Unlike Sony, where this was in development hell for a long time and they even miscalled Sonic as a "hedgedog" lol, Paramount seems confident in the blue blur. Let's hope it does good, I've been waiting for an action based adaptation of Sonic for a long time. Plus I was a Sonic X fan.

Goodness gracious almighty I pray that they don't make sequels to this. It's more than bad enough that we got a live-action Sonic movie instead of a fully animated Sonic movie in the first place, and that SEGA's brain-dead executives are screwing over this franchise by making abyssal decisions such as green-lighting this monstrosity.

Sonic's reputation has already hit rock bottom at this point. We really don't need it to go even lower.

He’s already tunneling to the earth’s core.

There will be a sequel if the movie makes good bank, even if the reception is bad. Look at Transformers and Venom. 

A sequel with a hefty budget will ensure more of Sonic's supporting cast appearing, and we'll probably actually get a movie that takes place on Mobius and not the real world. I might get excited for that one.
