Earlier today Paramount Pictures dropped the first trailer for its new Sonic the Hedgehog live-action film. Shortly after the premiere, social media was booming with reactions to the nearly-three-minute clip, and let’s just say they weren’t overwhelmingly positive.
Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog finds Parks and Recreation‘s Ben Schwartz voicing the titular character, while James Marsden portrays his human sidekick, Tom Wachowski. In the film Sonic is called on to save Earth from the villainous Dr. Robotnik (played by Jim Carrey), who is trying to harness Sonic’s powers for world domination. Tika Sumpter, Neal McDonough, and Adam Pally also feature in the picture, which is based on SEGA’s hit video game franchise.
Directed by Jeff Fowler, Sonic the Hedgehog is due in theaters this November.
