Live action Sonic got leaked through a marketing style guide.

As an ex-Sonic fan who recently left the fandom from all the horrible corporate decisions SEGA has made when it comes to the character, as well as his design for the movie's posters... I'm actually pretty OK with this design choice. I am NOT saying that it's still any GOOD nor stating that the design is true to the character, but it's fairly acceptable in my eyes.

Spoiler: Just some of my opinions that delve into general looks (click to see content)

Nonetheless I feel that they did the best they could working with the design from the teased poster, and I'd be more than glad to--

Wait...

IS THAT A NECK I SEE?!

This actually looks a bit better than the last nightmare fuel.
Still bad. Though the frontal shot in the "brand personality" pic could almost pass for believable. (actually that's the one where it looks the most like he's still wearing gloves)
2.  I know Sonic is technically always naked but why does taking away his gloves make him look SO MUCH MORE NAKED.
That's what just makes the whole thing funny. It's like it's not as terrible once you cross the line that makes you stop taking it seriously.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

I dunno, after Sonic Dreams it's hard not to approach Sonic losing his two articles of clothing without some scars.

Both of these films are doing a spectacular job at keeping me away from wanting to see either, so good job there, guys.  It just now occurs to me that while they bothered to remove the gloves, they also only kept him with four fingers?  All these half-steps are only turning out half-baked ideas.  Though to be fair I wouldn't be any more interested in a somehow more-real Sonic, so whatever.  I'll just say for this movie design though that the eyes are much too small on this Sonic to match the still large head.

Hey, I'd hate to talk about this more but did any of you see the other leak for the Sonic Movie? Well, I'll gladly take back my statement of saying the design was OK after seeing THIS.

Spoiler: Holy moly it's bad. (click to see content)

Out of sheer honesty though, I think it's fake. It's still disgusting nonetheless...

EDIT: Oh boy, I need to talk more about this, don't I?

EDIT #2: DON'T expect a trailer coming for this movie soon at SXSW. Didn't happen. BUT expect it elsewhere.
And expect the song in the spoiler to play throughout.

Also, some guy named Max (aka "DreamcastGuy") supposedly was able to watch said trailer of the movie while it's in the editing process. He claims that ...

So uhh... was anyone at CinemaCon at Las Vegas (I wasn't)? 'Cause the Sonic Movie trailer was screened privately there.

A fantastic cast and artistic direction reminiscent of the original Charles Addams comic strips from the 30's.  I'm so down for this.

The jump to 3d and the minor artistic liberties on the designs make the Addams look horrible, and not in a good way.



Morticia and Wednesday in particular look absolutely appaling.

Morticia makes me think of a cartoon Kardashian but with white skin.

I feel like they're almost there with the designs, hewing close to the original Charles Addams stuff, but it's just not fully there, so everyone looks really off. The movie looks cheap in a bad way, which is unfortunate, cuz it's got a killer cast.

As much as I hate to use the term ‘cringe’...



This is... so much worse than I was expecting, and I was expecting it to be an abomination.

(Sonic Movie Trailer)

Aaaaaaand there it is. If I had to beat my head with a brick for 12 hours non-stop to forget what I had just seen, you bet your ass I would.  :wall:

They 'touched up' Sonic's CG look (since not many liked the initial leak), but he somehow looks even more hideous.
Spoiler: Seriously, how in the FUCK is this okay?! (click to see content)

I'm speechless for pretty much everything else here. This'll be yet another Alvin and The Chipmunks-style movie, won't it?

Still very excited to watch Detective Pikachu. Hope it DESTROYS the box office.

PSA for everyone that is excited about that final shot

It is from the end of the movie as well, if the giant mushrooms weren't clue enough
Oh, why must I tell 'em again?
What must I tell 'em, my friend?
That we are born into sin
And we are worshiping murderers
Nothing but evil duplicitous men
I know you heard of 'em all
We should just murder 'em all
We should just murder and ball
We dance on the ruins we looting from all of they palace's walls

And it's like I'm the only one not upset by this film.

As someone put it: "Its too benign". It doesn't look impressive, but people are absolutely flipping out about it. I mean, c'mon >..< chill the fuck out. There's worse.

It feels like the typical hate/hype train bandwagon, really:

famous person said:
This movie looks like shit!

It feels like it was designed, written, and directed by a marketing department in order to appease boardroom executives who want to appeal to "the youth."  It's like they had someone watch 5 minutes of a Let's Play of Sonic the Hedgehog 1 and then fill out the script with whatever hashtags were trending on Instagram that day.

Plus, Sonic's design is mind-numbingly terrible.  I don't know what coked-up marketing exec demanded that he be both extremely skinny and uncomfortably muscular, or why they found it necessary to also give him highly visible human teeth and fingernails.
