Sonic the Hedgehog movie sequel release confirmed for 2022

Sonic the Hedgehog movie sequel release confirmed for 2022

Sonic the Hedgehog, it seems, has turned into one of the rare video game movie successes. Video game movies generally aren't anything worth writing home about, and after the first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog dropped - complete with a creepy, almost human-like Sonic - it seemed that this movie wouldn't be either. Following a period of some intensely negative feedback, Paramount delayed the movie as the designers went back to the drawing board to change Sonic's design to something a little more familiar.

Sonic movie redesign trailer is a whole lot less creepy

Earlier this year, Paramount Pictures took a swing and a miss by releasing the first trailer for its upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog flick. The response to that trailer was not great, with many people complaining about Sonic's uncanny valley look.

RIP creepy movie Sonic, 2019-2019

Sonic the Hedgehog fans complaining about Sonic the Hedgehog is nothing new. I should know - Sonic the Hedgehog was the very first video game I played when I was a kid, and throughout the years, I've tried to roll with the punches without feeling too bitter about the character's years-long downturn. Sonic fans have learned to accept mediocrity over the past 15 years or so, but it seems that even Sonic's low points couldn't prepare them for the official reveal of the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

Sonic the Hedgehog will see a few changes before film premieres

Translating video games into the big screen isn't easy, especially if you insist that the translation is a live-action one. The film industry is filled with examples of such attempts, many of which have ended up as box office catastrophes.

First Arrival trailer lands with plenty of suspense

First Arrival trailer lands with plenty of suspense

Science fiction movies can tend to be a little action-heavy, but it would appear that Paramount's incoming movie, Arrival, will give us something of a departure from the standard formula. The first trailer for Arrival has landed, and instead of a constant stream of epic space battles and massive explosions, the the trailer is more toned-down (for the most part, at least), offering an early look that is both dramatic and somewhat suspenseful.

3 new Transformers movies on the way, including Bumblebee spin-off

Listen up, Michael Bay fans, you're in for a lot more destructive robot action at the box office over the next few years. Despite the series being widely panned by critics (as well as many viewers), Paramount and Hasbro have decided that the world needs three more Transformers movies, and they've even scheduled release dates already. But what might be most interesting, for those who genuinely enjoy the movie franchise, anyway, is that the second of the three new films will be a spin-off focusing on everyone's favorite Autobot, Bumblebee.
