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.

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.

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.

I'm excited, if they do it justice it could turn out better than what everyone is expecting...or flop badly. Hopefully not though, come on trailer! ☺

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.

I still think they could have made a better poster design to go up in cinemas worldwide lol. You'd at least think that they would have the full revealed design on some, unless these are just teaser posters to gain interest and then release a new batch of poster designs closer to the release date?

A sequel would probably use the same character design as this movie, so we would get a super realistic looking Mobius..and I just don't see a point to that, at all.

So far everything regarding this movie only made me think: "Be careful what you wish for."

Depends on how well they pull of Sonic's design really, but I get what you are saying.

Bringing Mobius to life would be amazing. Think GOTG - which is what a live-action Sonic movie should look and feel like.

Unpopular opinion I know, but a live-action Sonic movie shouldn't look like anything, because it's a stupid idea IMHO.

The kind of style I would like to see a Sonic movie in is something similar to Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron:

But of course that would mean going back to an older style, which is of course a big no-no in big budget movies.

Since, the movie is being produced by the producer who is producing the Fast and the Furious movies, S.W.A.T., 21 Jump Street, Vantage Point, and The Green Hornet. I’m expecting the action to be like these. BTW, in the scene from S.W.A.T., the driver of the white Land Rover was actually the producer.

I'm not a huge fan of the fast and furious series but the action has always been quite entertaining and over the top in the sense of finding new ways to make cars do silly and Impossible things lol. So I'm sure a lot of effort has gone into the action scenes in sonic. Well you'd think so anyway...

So, what upcoming events ands dates are next for us to keep an eye out for some kind of news? We thinking a trailer alongside the pikachu movie?
