Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules) "Trailer 2 on Page 482)

That's the one, thank you! Yeah, I thought that could be a good indicator of giving people a basis for what Eggman might look like in the movie, but I've seen it referenced so little I started to think it might've been fan art or something, ha. I know that the Sonic art in that subsequent image obviously isn't what the hedgehog's movie incarnation will resemble, but I'd say there's a difference between a little fun piece of art to commemorate the end of a phase of the movie's production, and what is presumably a snippet of an actual storyboard image used for the movie.

While, the Sonic seen on that sketch may not be the actual design, but it could be close.:

It's seem that a visual effects company called Moving Picture Company will be working on the film. They listed the movie as one of the movies that they are working on. I look up of what they previously worked on. They seem to work a lot of well known movies. They even work on Detective Pikachu.

You know, what's weird? I look up all of the release dates for all of the countries so far. I find it weird that Canada will get the movie a bit late, when much of the movie is filmed there.

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3794354/locations

Anyway, why New York is listed there as a filming location? I don't remember if there was any filming there. Maybe it was filmed there for some small scenes, or maybe they secretly filmed it there? I don't know.

Do we know ANYTHING about that test screening besides what that critic who said he heard "good things"?

Wasn't there a guy who said there's a Facebook group with people saying it's good? Where are those?

Also I'm not sure if anyone brought this up, but a few months ago, someone edited the poster to get a closer look at the design. You can clearly see Sonic's mouth, and appears that the eyebrows haven't changed too much (still hard to make out though)20190301_154343_rmedited.jpg.dcf468bd6f1d1452e3e9dbde1da58659.jpg

I don't know, where, but I think it's from an early version of Sonic Boom called Sonic Synergy.

Very true, unfortunately. Terrible executing and scrapping of potential-filled ideas because of the mind-set that the ideas are bad and not their handling of it is the bane of the Sonic series' existence.

Yeah. Jeff Fowler, the director of this movie, claims to be a long-time fan of Sonic, and I believe that, but he never really had any experience in things that remotely relate to directing a movie.

I understand that there's this thing called "directional debuts", but again, Jeff Fowler didn't have much experience related to being a movie director other than being a director/writer for short films. Fowler is better as a visual artists than he is as a director.

I still believe that SEGA should hire passionate and dedicated fans to work on the franchise as developers, executives, etc., but said fans need to have good ideas, a good vision, and previous experience in things related to their roles.

Tika Sumpter mentioned how excited she was to be a part of the movie, and that Jeff Fowler was "so smart."

Well, yeah, obviously. Talking bad about a project you're involved in when a company is trying to sell it is one way to get fired and blacklisted.

-_- Quit being so pessimistic with your statements.

No...

Again this video, the CEO had doubts until he saw footage of the movie itself.

 

Refer to my statement of it being incredibly unwise to badmouth a product you're trying to sell.

It seems Sonic has no competition on release week. Not only was Kingsman delayed, but Margie Claus was removed from the schedule.

EDIT: Nevermind. Turns out I got the week wrong. It’s actually up against Doctor Sleep and Midway. 

EDIT 2: Turns out, Ford vs Ferrari got moved to November 15. I’ve removed it from the list.

I have a strong feeling that Sonic will wear clothing in the movie. 

Sega seems not to like letting Sonic wear clothes in adaptations; probably because that might make his nakedness in the core series look wrong.

I posted at the same time you did, so it made it seem I was responding to you. I was actually responding to Gamecuber64.

Found it here:

Hey also, I'm noticing that Patrick Casey seems a little irritated at people repeatedly spamming questions about the movie. Everyone chill out! Just patiently wait for the trailer in like May lmao

Some interesting points being made that could point to Sonic's arms being beige/peach after all instead of blue. That's probably my only gripe with design

I remember that the former writer, Van say that we will be pleasantly surprised in this thread 6 years ago. I think this is the one. I'm not sure if that will be the case, since he doesn't work on the movie anymore.:

He also mentioned that he had wrote a scene where Eggman had a coffee maker that was labeled Mean Bean Machine. Unfortunately, it got cut due to unknown reasons.
