The first trailer for the live action Sonic the Hedgehog film has just dropped. The film will star Jim Carrey as the evil Dr Robotnik, as well as Parks and Ben Schwartz as the eponymous ring-collecting hedgehog.
When we first got a look at the cinematic interpretation of the film’s titular character back in December, some fans expressed early frustrations at his generally jacked appearance.
“Pure fun, pure fun,” Carrey recently told Collider of what drew him to the Sonic world. “That’s how I operate these days. If it’s something I think that I can explore a new side of myself or I can actually kinda go back and hit that really absurd energy that people really love, the Ace Venturas and those types of characters, so it was an opportunity to do that again.”
The trailer opens with a police car waiting at the road side, before a blue-coloured blur zooms by. “What the…?” asks the cop at the wheel, as his speed gun appears to be going off the scale.
Sonic the Hedgehog, with a budget of $90 million, is poised to release in theaters across the United States on November 8. There’s been no word of when it will premiere in other territories.
