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

Recommended Posts

The glove is inticing. Dare they play with our heartstrings like that? Surely they now know any new design sans glove will be burned at the stake.... 

 

That being said, I've often seen people question the power of this fanbase and it relative size. I think we can put some of those questions to bed considering how it stirred up enough wangst to force a 12th hour redesign. A lot of other franchises fan bases didn't have that kind of pull when Hollywood murdered their expectations.

If the delay post art is whatsoever similar to their new design replacement... Then it is already looking far more like the normal Sonic we all know and love. gloves, bigger hand size and more cartoony shaped limbs. The arms are still blue tho... not that I care either way with that last part really.

So it got moved to feb 14 err? Welp that is fairly close to my birthday... In that case I am going ahead and watch it for sure now. It probably will still end up a lame movie overall... however if the new design actually looks far better, then I can at least enjoy looking at it! Hahaa!

Yay! Sonic has his gloves back. And he's still got the Boom blue arms, of course either Modern or Boom's I'm fine with. His arm looks more Sonic-like.

I'm glad it got delayed to avoid "crunch time", that was a great move. But like @Zaysho said, it shouldn't have even came to redesigning Sonic, If the design was done right in the 1st place.

I don't... really understand why they need to go this far. They should have just committed to it and gotten it over with. Changing Sonic's design at this stage isn't going to magically make this a better movie, just one where people won't wince when a blue gremlin is on the screen.

On the bright side, I'm glad the crew will have more time and the crunch will be eased, but it shouldn't have even come to that in the first place.

They want to put out a good impression. Odds are this is a several picture deal. Detective pikachu's issues aside everyone see's video game as the next movie fronteer. And they want to probably make sure they get 3 movies out of it

Not saying that reason is good, but its the reason

So, happy that the movie is being delayed, and also, I see that it's going to be releasing on Valentine's Day.

Here are all the movies that will be releasing in that month.

February 7 (Friday)

Birds of Prey

Peter Rabbit 2

February 14 (Friday - Valentine's Day)

Sonic the Hedgehog

Kingsman: The Great Game

The Photograph

February 21 (Friday)

Bloodshot

Call of the Wild

February 28 (Friday)

Fantasy Island

Also, it's kinda funny that the Kingsman prequel and the Sonic Movie are going to be releasing on the same day. Both of the movies were originally going to be releasing this November.

At least, the movie won't be competing against Frozen 2.

Basically this and watch people destroy the film regardless if they flop on the story

I really don't think this is worth it, story's still probably going to be crap. At least the animators won't be as rushed. This should never have been necessary in the first place.. 

I wonder if they'd have to reshoot some scenes where the actors interact with him.

Doubtful as there just swapping a model out. but hey that's just how some people are. Woody woodpecker looked like himself and the story blew. Smurfs looked like their originals,  story bit. People griped on Sonics look. Story could still possibly be bad but if where going on first reactions to this news even if the stories very bad "heck it may be great" long as sonic looks ok then full fail ahead

Tommy Wiseau's continued interest in this movie is starting to worry me.

Unless the redesign is significantly closer to the standard Sonic template, whatever new look they come up will likely end up with a similar level of scorn (I'm expecting quotes such as "9 months and that's the best they could do?").

As said before, they've brought it on themselves.

 

And of course, the fact that everything else we know about the film / trailer so far is super generic means reactions to the film itself, no matter what Sonic looks like, will still probably be poor. This is a brief respite from the bad publicity, but I suspect it'll only be a blip and in a couple of year's time this will just be another footnote.

I'd pay double to see this if Wiseau was involved! This would make so bad, it would actually be good!

Wonder why they didn't just did that in the first place? Oh right realism for a cartoon hedgehog and Sega not giving a crap in getting involved with their mascot's first movie.

Still even if you give your crappy broken down rustbucket a new paint job, it doesn't fix the other problems it has i.e. needing new tires, replace dead battery, etc. Or in this movie's case, bland major/side characters (James Marsden), weak writing/jokes, cliche'd Fish Out of Water and generic plotlines like other live action adaptations, inconsistent powers (Ring portals and stopping time? WTF?), etc.

It's gonna be crap regardless.
