    It's April 30, not April 1, right? Just think, that was the best some group came up with.

    I always love trailers that trumpet "From the producer of..." some well-known movie.

    Virtually meaningless as a quality tip-off. No, scratch the "virtually."

    This House Has People In It seems to be the first canon appearance of the new Sonic.

    Honestly, I don't know what to make of that trailer. It does seem like they're trying to go the Transformers route by having the military hunting Sonic presumably because he's somehow a threat to national security with Dr. Robotnik being a consultant. Jim Carey being Jim Carey was already tiresome in 1995, so no points there. Sonic himself seems appropriately tongue and cheek, so the movie's got that going for it. And that joke at the end about "is that your child in the bag?" "it's a child, but not my child" was actually genuinely amusing. But I don't think I'll be seeing this in theatres. The most I'll do is maybe watch it if it shows up on my cable provider's On Demand listings, and even then only if I'm bored enough.

    I didn't see a listing on IMDB, but I'm almost certain that has to be Michael Hogan (Colonel Tigh on BSG) as the Air Force General at the start of the trailer.

    I know, right? That to me was probably the most baffling thing, it doesn't in any way fit!

    To a teenager living in 1996, sure. But, then again, the entire concept of this movie probably fits that too. And a comedy starring Jim Carrey.

    That's what this movie is. It's 1996:The Movie. It's my teenage years come back to life to remind me why it's in the past.

    So far the reception seems to be overwhelmingly negative, and I don't mean in a "it's different from what we remember!" negativity we often see with movie adaptations, but a "holy fuck, what kind of godless abomination is this?" "Who greenlit this trailer as something they wanted the public to see?!" and "Jim Carrey seems like he's having fun, at least."

    Lots of comparisons to the 1993 Super Mario Bros. movie. I wonder how Paramount's responding to the rather potent shock and dismay on display? Or the people who made it?

    Yeah, I found that kind of odd too. It's a great song, but not the first one I'd have used for a Sonic trailer, in 2019. :lol:

    I dunno, I would think that on some level they had to expect this. I mean... They HAD to right? They spent money into making this thing, giving it to this first-time director, he gives them this in the end and they had to be like, "Oh... Oh Jesus. Well, we have it now might as well go for "sell people on how bad it is and get them to come see it out of curiosity."

    Wasn't it used for the Need For Speed game trailers? Paramount's thinking: sONic iS alSO fAsT

    No one else notice Michael Hogan in the trailer? Surely he can't be that hard pressed for cash.

    I have a feeling this is going to be the Super Mario Bros: The Movie, of the 21st century.

    You know after having a glass (or was it two?) of wine yesterday evening I watched the trailer again and... it wasn’t as bad the second time around? Maybe if Jim Carrey is actually having fun being his old self this movie could be one of those, it’s so bad, it’s good? Maybe? The trailer definitely went over a little better with alcohol. Maybe that will be the right way to watch this movie :D :beer:

    Jim Carrey is definitely channelling 2000 The Rock.
