    I wonder whether that bad design (which was first released) was made on purpose to promote the movie

    Staring Jim Carrey as Robbie Rotten playing Robotnik but without that pesky PG ranting holding him back.

    Unfortunately it wasn't, or the design would just have been used for the trailer alone.

    Edit; Do the Eggman!

    I was on the edge on watching this movie just because of Jim Carrey, but now that this movie actually looks decent, I think I'll watch it.

    No one would show something bad on purpose- people hav pride and ego especially in the film industry

    Right here on good ol' planet Earth!
    Okay, saw the trailer. First impression?

    While I do think that attempts to make a "realistic" cartoon character often make them look much different and almost unrecognizable, this one I'd have to say they did better on.

    Compare them - First trailer Sonic on the left, new trailer Sonic on the right:

    That being said, Jim Carrey is still not the best choice for Robotnik, but whatever. They're obviously not going to change that before launch. Everything else seems fine. It looks like a funny movie, only I would have liked to see if the other Sonic characters were in it.

    EDIT: To emphasize my first point, here's another comparison.

    The Smurfs Movie:

    Smurfs: The Lost Village:

    EDIT 2: Here's a copy of the old trailer, if anyone wants their eyes to bleed:

    OK that Smurfs comparision is uncanny. You can see the same kind of hollywood bullshit thinking that got us the first Sonic design.

    I'm still not expecting quality from the movie as a whole, and I highly doubt much other people are.

    I was going to watch this no matter what design they used. Let’s say the movie isn’t going to be that great, the design would not matter. Hopefully the movie is good since they took extra time to redesign sonic.

    Probably still not something I'd bother going to the theater to see, but much improved.

    It is a mix of old Sonic and the Newest one. It works for me.:)

    I don't think that's the case - if looking at all the previous kid oriented franchise-to-live action releases (Garfield, Alvin and The Chipmunks, Smurfs, etc.), original version of Sonic looks exactly like Hollywood executive's idea of "good design that appeals to children"; there's even certain DreamWorks touch to it.
