The long-time gamer in me cant help but be at least a little intrigued by the new trailer for “Sonic the Hedgehog”. The video game debuted way back in 1991 on the Sega Genesis and I played it for countless hours. Since then there have been numerous sequels, comics, and several animated series. But now we have a live-action movie and it looks……bizarre.
To be clear I’m not sure if it’s bizarre in a good way or bad. But it looks completely ludicrous which is kinda what you need it to be. And who is the ringleader of the nuttiness – Jim Carrey playing Sonic’s nemesis Dr. Robotnik and he is in full 90’s Carrey mode. Again, whether that’s good or bad remains to be seen. But so far…I’m curious enough to give it a look.
“Sonic the Hedgehog” speeds into theaters on November 8th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or giving it a pass.
