Sonic the Hedgehog: watch the first trailer for the film

The first trailer has been released for the upcoming live-action Sonic the Hedgehog film.

Since the trailer debuted yesterday, there’s been a lot of commentary from critics and fans of the series. Not everyone has been excited by what they see. See what you think by watching the trailer below:

Sonic the Hedgehog features the voice of Ben Schwartz and stars James Marsden (X-Men), Jim Carrey (Dumb & Dumber), Tika Sumpter (One Life to Live), Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) and Neal McDonough (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow).

The live-action adventure comedy is based on the global blockbuster video game franchise from Sega that centres on the infamously brash bright blue hedgehog. It follows the (mis)adventures of Sonic as he navigates the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound – human – best friend Tom Wachowski (James Marsden).

Sonic and Tom join forces to try and stop the villainous Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) from capturing Sonic and using his immense powers for world domination.

Sonic the Hedgehog is directed by Jeff Fowler with a screenplay from Patrick Casey, Josh Miller and Oren Uziel.

Alongside the trailer a poster has debuted too, which you can see below:
