    This must be paramount's way of paying for all the chiropractic therapy Jim Carrey will need from carrying this movie.

    Looks okay. I didn't think there would be such a outcry for that, but I also didn't they they would be willing to change it either. Must have taken lot of time and money to do. But the problem I have is what about the movie would make me interested in seeing? The only character there is Sonic (And Eggman/ Dr.Robotnik) Where is the other characters? I would have just been happier with season 3 of sonic boom. Was there really any demand for a Live Action Sonic movie where he should be interacting with real people? :blink:

    Okay, this Sonic looks like he's recovered from the guy who fucked him up badly. Now we need a fat villain, not some skinny Ace Ventura with weird muctache... Wait a sec, Ace Ventura is a animal-hater lmfao.

    They can't use all characters at once. That's for the sequels.

    Sonic´s german voice actor is horrible.
    Now they did everything right but I can´t watch the movie with that horrible voice acting

    I don't agree. It's pretty accurate. This is about how a realistic Sonic would look.

    Who knows, that might be the truth. 3 Month or so for a complete redesign, including rendering every scene again seems like a very tight timeframe. I was thinking the same when they said that they will do a redesign.
    But I don't know much about filmmaking. Maybe they were so stupid and thought that the first design was good enough? I mean, who remembers the Super Mario Bros. movie and how they handled the Sourcematerial...?

    Anyway, I realy like the redesign. It is not perfect but it is already miles better than the first version.
    - Eyes are much closer to the source material, even though he still has 2 single eyes and not "one huge" eye. Might be because of animation reasons?
    - The jokes are very cringy. Stories in Sonic games are also very cringy. Sonic in general is very cringy. So this is all right for me.
    - The actual World that Sonic comes from looks stunning and makes me wish that they went for a full CGI movie inside that universe. Or go the route that Detective Pikachu went and incooperate the typical "structures" inside the real world - not sure how that would have turned out in this case though. I imagine that it would have been a much harder clash between artstyles. I have to watch the full moviel before I can have an oppinion on that matter.

    I think that I will enjoy the movie. The new trailer gave me hope that the production team is not completely incompetent in what they are doing. And Eggman / Robotnik is dope :D

    Was that a trailer, or the entire movie?

    Anyways, I'd watch this just to see Jim Carrey playing eggman even with the old creepy sonic.

    Meh, design are way better but I found the previous trailer better (without being good). I really found Sonic and the joke insufferable in that one

    I guess I'll stay with my decision to not see this

    Looks good. Not the biggest Sonic fan but I am definitely hyped for this.
    I would have liked to see the original trailer fixed though.
    It didn't look realistic, it just looked wrong.

    In the end, movies like Garfield, Alvin & The Chipmunks, and The Smurfs made freakin' gigantic piles of money, and so will this one, regardless of what anyone here thinks.

    The plot definitely doesn't look like it's trying anything remotely fresh, that's for sure.

    The movie still won't be out until February. For all we know, it may be the case that the only scenes which have been reanimated and rendered at this point are the ones in the trailer.

    What people do not see is that Robotnic also has his RED color back! Something that was missing in the original version.
