A new Sonic the Hedgehog spot has been unleashed from Paramount which sees the video game speedster having to save the planet.
The footage features a look at Jim Carrey’s Dr. Ivo Robotnik attacking Sonic the Hedgehog and his pals.
“Basically, it looks like I am going to have to save your planet,” Sonic says as Robotnik’s evil inventions are shown. “So uncool.”
Watch the spot below, which includes some laughs, as well as the latest Japanese trailer.
Tracking has Sonic the Hedgehog opening from anywhere between $20 million to $30 million at the box office, which is just an okay number, as reportedly, the flick cost around $90 million to $100 million to make. We can assume that if reviews and, at least, word-of-mouth is positive, that Sonic the Hedgehog might do a bit better.
Paramount is probably hoping Sonic does as well as the Warner Bros.’s recent Pokémon Detective Pikachu movie which brought in over $430 million at the box office on a budget of $150 million and starred the voice of Ryan Reynolds.
Sonic the Hedgehog gets released Feb. 14, 2020 starring Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic, Jim Carrey as Dr. Ivo Robotnik, and James Marsden as Tom Wachowski.
