Paramount has released the first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog, the upcoming live-action/CG adaptation of the popular video game series. The film is directed by Jeff Fowler and stars James Marsden, Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik, Tika Sumpter, and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic. Early impressions are saying Detective Pikachu is going to break the video game curse, but it looks like this might quickly reinvoke that curse.
Sonic the Hedgehog speeds into theaters November 8th.
SONIC THE HEDGEHOG is a live-action adventure comedy based on the global blockbuster videogame franchise from Sega that centers on the infamously brash bright blue hedgehog. The film follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound – human – best friend Tom Wachowski (James Marsden). Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination. The film also stars Tika Sumpter and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic.
