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

Recommended Posts

I want to shit post so bad, but I'm genuinely interested in seeing exactly how much they've improved Sonic. Hopefully the new trailer will include many of the same scenes from the original trailer. I want to get a good look at Sonic's proportions, the way that his limbs bend and, of course, his mouth.

Personally speaking, I don't really like Ben Scwartz' voice for Sonic. It just doesn't mesh. I wonder if this trailer might change now that his Sonic won't be painful to look at.

I want to shit post and I will, mods stop me >:V

Seriously tho', I'm also curious to see the thing moving and what else changed. Hopefully the new trailer will have new scenes as well as old ones to compare. I'm a little bit optimistic TBH.

if that design leak is real, and it's more likely than not, i'm going in cautiously optimistic. i always thought that aside from the design, it looked like a decent family action flick. nothing amazing, and not my preferred style for the movie, but it seemed like a fun watch aside from that hideous design.

We already have news and don't need to delve into deleted tweets and comments or read into these things.

Can we please exercise just the tiniest bit of patience and not bump this thread looking for scraps of information? If it turns out things weren't reported correctly about the trailer and there's nothing tomorrow, oh well. The topic isn't going to fall off the first page of the index that quickly or easily.

As I expected the movie itself still doesn't look particularly interesting to me, but eh. The old design was like 90% of the outright embarrassment, other than that it's kind of just Generic Hollywood Adaptation of Cartoon Character.

I dunno why, but this feels like a whole different movie compared to the Gangster's Paradise trailer. Feels more fun and energetic.

Oh my God!! It looks genuinely funny and WILD, CRAZY. I didn't expect Sonic to be so on fire, Tom is still cringe with his "he's my friend", but he shoots at Sonic, punches Robotnik, seems pretty active. Annie is nowhere to be seen… uh. But yeah, between Green Hill, piramids, Chinese wall, this film looks packed with stuff, and it's all thanks to the warp rings, plus road trips were never this exciting, it's basically a world tour… like Spiderman in Europe? Woah.

Robotnik: he's so mad and weird, I love it! Carrey is also on fire in this trailer. My favorite characters are definitely Sonic and Robotnik, as it should be, the protagonist and the antagonist, Tom is just a small part of it, they really nailed the roles properly.

It's not the Sonic I grew up with (heck, I grew up with many different Sonics) but I just think this looks so damn fun! It's like a completely different movie.

Genuinely did a big lol at that latte bit.

I can't wait!

Thanks to every Sonic fan who kicked off about the first trailer while I sat there like a dick and hit the like button. We have ended up with something SO MUCH BETTER!

This is great **grins like an idiot all day in work**.

Still not into Robotnik looking nothing like the character for the main mass of the movie. But outside of that I am actually feeling fairly hyped to go see the movie! Sure the plot might be dull & generic... but whatever ya know? just seeing Sonic on the big screen will be fun enough to me now that he actually looks like Sonic and not a embarrassing blue goblin pretending to be Sonic.

Rhythm Thief finally gets to return... for the Sonic Movie trailer.

Anyway, I was happy with that. Hurts a tad that the most gorgeous part of the trailer, the GHZ opening, is gonna be like 5 minutes in the film, but I'll live. The design looks absolutely fine now, and that was obviously my main issue with it. 

Not that it's gonna be the best thing ever, but I can see myself watching this now at least.

The old trailer was really bad in every sense. The new trailer is generic Hollywood adaptation. It looks fine. Passable. Inoffensive. Sonic himself looks really quite cool. I'm ready to not hate this movie and instead just ignore it as something that'll be forgotten in a few years time amongst the myriad of not very good video game film adaptations. At least it will no longer be the flagship for bad live action/realistic redesigns.

It’s actually, well it was actually ok. I even chuckled at certain parts. 

Sonic looks miles better - not perfect, but more along the lines of what we should have got int he first place. I think the most important part is now he actually looks animated with expression rather than creepy in the uncanny valley. My only real niggles are that the proportions are still incorrect but I imagine this is largely a hangover from retooling the entire film to fit around the original larger design. 

Still concerned for Robotnik and his hyperkinetic Jim Carey humour meshing... but oddly I’m not to concerned with the parallel hyperactive child-like Sonic they are going for in this movie.

Okay so first I'll mention the good things I saw from that trailer:

1. Sonic's new design looks a MILLION times better. THANK YOU. The eyes still look a little weird, but it's not that big of a deal.

2. Green Hill looks absolutely stunning.

3. The choice for music in this trailer? Also a MILLION times better.

4. Jim Carrey. Need I say more?

Now the bad:

1. The acting is still not all that great to me. Jim Carrey's still the only one that stands out in my opinion.

2. The humor's still hit and miss to me. It feels all over the place. And I know the humor we got in the first trailer didn't go away either.

3. I still hate this plot. I'm sorry, but I just cannot get into this generic and un-Sonic plot whatsoever.

4. Green Hill looked so good...but this kind of breathtaking scenery is only going to be in like 5 minutes of the movie. So it's not saying much.

5. The writing as a whole feels inconsistent. Sometimes, Sonic acts like Sonic. And then other times he's, well, not. Eggman/Robotnik was clearly written with Jim Carrey in mind, and it works.

Overall, It feels like Jim Carrey's the only beacon of light in this movie, but I also feel like this is the kind of trailer the movie needed. Badly. It still has a lot of problems. But I've gone from not even wanting to watch it to giving it a chance when it comes out on DVD/Blu-Ray or something. And that's saying a lot.

Well, that was a turnaround, still not sold, but the humour hit a lot better. At least, when Sonic acted like Sonic, a lot of the character driven humour actually works fairly well, and Sonic is actually animated well and looks nice. I really like how he’s constantly doing something now. Compared to the original trailer, where Sonic was fairly stiff in the car, here he’s always moving or playing with something, it’s fun.

I still think it’ll be bad, but the trailer bumped it up to “worth checking out when the dvd releases” for me, which is kind of the same case with Teen Titans Go to the Movies.

idk guys, it’s like when you actually make things similar to the games in music, locale, and character design, people might respond a little better to it as if it’s something they already liked :V
