Coppola and Scorcese are already in front of the CHinese theater with a tent for the world premiere.

Smurfs and Alvin and the Chipmunks shows these kinds of movies can be hits regardless of quality

Those movies were from an almost bygone era, though.

Name one videogame movie that has done Alvin and the Chipmunks numbers in North America? Detective Pikachu had way better trailers and Pokemon is far more relevant than Sonic today and that film didn't pull in those numbers.

LOL, who the fuck cares how the blue rat looks.

 

Only good thing in this is the grand return of Jim The God Carrey.

 

Movie still gonna bomb like a bitch though. Much worse than the other, yellow rat. All the "fans goodwill" won't help a thing.

 

They should really stop trying to put videogames into movies. They don't belong. Movies are art. Games are for bottom level types with nothing better within their reach.

Sonic trailer views are really impressive. 28 Million just from two accounts (Paramount's official and One Media).

 

I don't know if this will translate to box office success but it definitely has the potential.

Credit is deserved where it's due. The people took the extra measure to entirely change the aesthetic of the lead character, and make scenes more vibrant in nature as evident in vast differences shown from both trailers. They replaced the WILDLY out of place "Gangsta's Paradise" with a more fitting song for the tone. In terms of marketing, Paramount listened to fans and did them right. This looks like a better adaptation than Mario Bros, and despite the low bar...they're doing it RIGHT.

Both involve staring at a screen. A fan of one doesn't stand on higher ground than the other.

:kitschjob: I think they made a big mistake on the restaurant tie-in thing.

How did Sonic miss the chance to do a tie-in with the Sonic the Hedgehog movie? They even serve hot dogs there. The opportunity was gift wrapped for them!

I hope people go out and see this, a studio dumped 35 Million extra in to change something for us, this needs to succeed or what is our feedback really worth?

The studio made a terrible design decision and paid for it.

The official numbers to re-animate Sonic for the movie was 35 Millon.

Trying to find out what is "official" about this number... nothing, as expected.

It comes from a report by the website socialfilms.co.uk - how they would know isn't clear.
