First Trailer Of The New ‘Sonic The Hedgehog’ Movie Is Officially Out | Film Trailer
It’s been 28 years since Sonic The Hedgehog first arrived on home gaming consoles. And today, (Tuesday, April 30) sees the release of the first trailer for its animation/live-action hybrid film, based on the SEGA video game series about the speedy blue fur-ball.
The cast includes Ben Schwartz as Sonic, Jim Carrey as Doctor Robotnik/Eggman, Sonic’s villainous rival; James Marsden as Tom Wachowski, a police officer who teams up with Sonic to thwart Eggman’s evil schemes; Adam Pally (The Mindy Project, Iron Man 3) as Tom’s fellow police officer; Neal McDonough, Tika Sumpter and Natasha Rothwell‘s roles are currently under wraps.
In the trailer, we meet Schwartz’s brash hero-in-the-making as a bright blue blur speeding down an empty country road and setting off police officer Tom Wachowski’s (Marsden) radar. Eventually, Tom finds Sonic rummaging through his shed and shoots with a tranquilizer gun; however, it’s not long before these two becomes thick as thieves and Sonic explains the reason why he’s on Earth.
Neal H. Moritz from Original Film Inc. (Fast and Furious series) will produce the adaptation with Jeff Fowler directing and Deadpool‘s Tim Miller executive producing. Production of the film began in Vancouver and is set to continue through the end of September with the movie premiere in November. In the meantime check the trailer below.
