The New, Improved Sonic Movie Trailer Is Here And It Actually Looks Good

I’m very much not alone in thinking that the Sonic the Hedgehog live-action-CG-hybrid film was looking decidedly garbage when the first trailer showed up towards the beginning of this year. A lot of that had to do with Sonic’s design, which was…unsettling to say the least:

Well, after promising to go back to the drawing board and revise the character design, Paramount has done just that. The new design can be seen in an all-new trailer released today that also does a much better job of portraying the tone of the film itself. Now, instead of nightmarish and dull, it actually looks like a lot of dumb fun.

Check out the new trailer right here:

Kieron started gaming on the SEGA Master System, with Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd and Wonder Boy. The 20-odd years of his life since have not seen his love for platformers falter even slightly. A separate love affair, this time with JRPGs, developed soon after being introduced to Final Fantasy VIII (ie, the best in the series). Further romantic subplots soon blossomed with quirky Japanese games, the occasional flashy AAA action adventure, and an unhealthy number of indie gems. To say that Kieron lies at the center of a tangled, labyrinthine web of sexy video game love would be an understatement.
