There May Be A Silver Lining for This Harshly Received Trailer
A new trailer for the upcoming video game franchise, turned live-action film, “Sonic The Hedgehog” dropped today and with the amount of negativity or at least, uncertainty, surrounding the movie, the only accurate way to portray the general consensus is through a good old fashion roundup of Twitter reactions. But before reading everyone else’s opinions, check out the trailer for yourself!
Based on the trailer alone, the plot seems straightforward and fairly action-packed, with local policeman Tom Wachowski (James Marsden) teaming up with Sonic to defeat his long-standing enemy, Dr. “Eggman” Robotnik (Jim Carrey). Robotnik on the other hand has plans of his own to take down Sonic, in curious connection with the United States military.
Now in terms of the reactions, many were quick to call out the trailer’s flaws like Sonic’s CG design and Jim Carey’s initial reveal as the series and film’s main antagonist, Dr. Robotnik.
While others weren’t quite as offended:
But the primary consensus is that there is one silver lining in the last 2 seconds of the trailer: Jim Carrey’s final reveal as a more convincing Eggman.
