On April 30, 2019 Paramount Pictures revealed the official trailer for the Sonic The Hedgehog movie and it features possibly the most oddly placed theme song of all time…Gangsta’s Paradise by Coolio. It’s such an odd choice that it’s actually fantastic, in hindsight. Sonic is arguably the 2nd most recognizable video game character, behind Nintendo’s Mario, of course.
Sonic is set to save Earth from Dr. Robutnik, who is played by Jim Carrey. We’ve heard plenty of rumors about Sega wanting to get back into gaming in a significant way, and perhaps this is the tip of the iceberg for what Sega has in store. Also an interesting thought, is this a one-off movie, or will there be multiple that feature Sonic’s long-time sidekick, Tails?
Is Sonic The Hedgehog a must see in theaters for you, or wait until it comes out on Netflix/Blu Ray/DVD?
