Nothing from Disney, huh? Sonic seems to be the only family film releasing that entire month, so pretty much all the kids will be seeing that one. Everything else looks pretty dull. (King's Man might be some competition though, but again, different demographic)

Sonic might actually be a success.

Edit: Wait, Call of the Wild is an animated Disney film. I thought it was a nature movie or something. :P

Well, it is actually from their Fox arm, and doesn’t seem to necessarily be aimed at kids. But still, COTW’s easily Sonic’s one and only competitor.

Whenever the next trailer is dropping I expect they'll give about a days notice on social media.

I agree.

I think theres a possibility with Gemini Man... Maybe just wishful thinking.

What if the new design is just a man in a cheap Sonic suit awkwardly inserted into every shot that previously had CGI Sonic?

That would just mean they swapped what looked like a kid in a Sonic suit and make-up for a grown man in a Sonic suit.

So, they still not ready to show Sonic's redesign yet? Weird. 

BTW, here is another picture.:

Pictures were taken at IgroVir which is a video game convention in Russia.

Are you sure it's a video game convention? There's a poster of 'Gemini Man' in the back.

Well, according to this guy, he confirmed the place where the ad was taken is a video game convention.:

BTW, the actual name of the convention is called IgroMir. I didn't realized that he actually accidentally misspelled it.

Looking through the IMDB page again. Not sure if this is an older entry or a new addition, but I noticed some guy, Andrew Swarbick, has been credited for 'trailer music' 

Interesting, because as we all know, the 1st trailer had music by Coolio, NOT this dude. Could this imply the 2nd trailer is ready to drop soon?

I found the dude's website and it seems like he's just the guy who composed the other small pieces of music throughout the original trailer (?)

I actually thought those other little bits were Junkie XL's score but apparently they aren't. Huh.

The development of this movie is very weird and confusing.:

First, this was all announced back in 2014 with Sony until Paramount take over back in 2017. Van and his partner were confirmed to be writing the movie until Patrick Casey and Josh Miller replaced them. The development got quiet until the filming and the cast were announced last year.

Back in 2015,  Iizuka was confirmed on Facebook that he was supervising the movie.

However despite that, he confirmed that he was not actually involved in the movie according to an interview with ladbible.:

"It's not a SEGA movie - we're not making it, or anything - and I'm only an advisor, really. But I do get shown things, and the [movie team] ask for my opinion. I'm also listening to what the fans are saying, and I'll feed that back to the director - he, and the producers, are very interested in receiving that feedback. At the end of the day, it's up to the team at Paramount to make something successful, but we're all looking forward to seeing the finished movie."

At the end of 2016, Van who is one of the former writers promised that Sonic won't look too different.:

When Sonic’s movie design got revealed at the end of last year and it got a lot of backlash. Jeff and Tim has responded to the criticism and promised changes to the design back in January. 

Despite that they still go with the design. 

Look how that ended up.:

The movie was originally going to be set to be released in 2018 which was last year, but got then pushed to this year. However again, thanks to the complaints, the movie got pushed again to next year.:

If the film was announced back in 2014 and soon push back to 2020 then we will be waiting for this movie for about 7 years. That’s a long time! 

 

 

Just want to point out something I forgot to talk about in that post I made a while ago. There was another confusing thing about the development. Tim Miller claimed that the only problem that Sega wasn’t happy with was his eyes.:

The filmmakers struggled with how best to depict Sonic’s eyes because often he’s only seen with one, and that wouldn’t translate well to the live-action movie.

“I don’t think SEGA was entirely happy with the eye decision, but these sorts of things you go, ‘It’s going to look weird if we don’t do this.’ But everything is a discussion, and that’s kind of the goal, which is to only change what’s necessary and stay true to the rest of it,” said Miller.

So, when these came out. It’s turned out that the eyes wasn’t the only problem. The whole entire design was a big problem. Everybody hated it.

Anyway, I’m glad they redesigning him. That was the right thing to do. Hopefully we get something like around next week.

No chance. 

Unfortunately, I agree. Paramount is going to be advertising the heck out of Gemini Man this week since it releases friday.

Nothing new here. I found a old set photo that Adam Pally posted. He doesn’t mention the filming of the movie on the post. If you look closer on the background, you can see the Green Hills filming set in Ladysmith. One of the cars which is the grey Ford Fusion right behind the lady walking with Adam that was used for a explosion scene can be also seen in the picture.
