Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Trailer

212 Squadron - "The Old Man's Eyes And Ears"
Holy shit. I can't believe this. When I wrote this a couple of months ago, I was blissfully convinced that any talk of a Top Gun sequel would remain just talk, because, you know, it's just such a stupid idea.
I'm somewhat amazed that anyone on the internet didn't know this was coming since it was announced three years ago.

That may be true, but at the time I thought it was a load of horseshit. You know, like when people announce the coming second season of Firefly. Sounds like I wasn't the only person who thought that...

That's the thing. I'd heard so many times about the Top Gun sequel, that I'd come to assume it's basically one of those films that's always in development, but never actually comes to fruition.

If you can't tell the difference between a PR announcement on CNN from a major movie studio and some go-nowhere, know-nothing fanpost on Reddit, I dunno what to tell you...

Well, he does look more like the Sonic from the games.
Hopefully the people who were complaining about the character design will like it better.

Certainly, this is a far superior character design for Sonic. The character now looks genuinely great. I remain extremely sceptical about the film's chances of success, however. The way I see it, Sega has at last produced a movie to beat Nintendo's Super Mario Brothers - but after 25 years, does anyone care? Is there an audience at all for this film?

Well, maybe they'll prove me wrong.

Of course this is really just anecdotal but my son, who's 10, has never played a Sonic game. I've never gone out of my way to explain Sonic to him or made any efforts to expose him to it. He has no real reason to even be aware of sonic, but people at school talk about Sonic. He's also therefore went ahead and watched some of the Sonic animated TV shows, and has expressed desire to see the movie long before the first trailer came out. I don't know what it is about sonic, and I can't say that the movie will do well (Judging by both trailers it certainly seems not my cup of tea, improved character design or not) but like Mario - though not to the same extent - there's definitely a larger cultural awareness of the brand out there.
