New Sonic the Hedgehog TV Spot Gives The Rock a Shoutout and He Responds
The new Sonic the Hedgehog TV spot features new footage and a reference to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's presidency. Johnson has a lot going on at the moment with Jumanji: The Next Level opening at number one this weekend at the box office. However, he took some time out of his day to recognize the little blue hedgehog on social media. The studio seems to have made the right decision with the redesign and new release date.

In the latest look at Sonic the Hedgehog, we see the iconic video game character in all sorts of action. It's a really good look at the upcoming movie and at one point, Sonic can be heard asking, "Where am I? What year is it? Is The Rock president?" Dwayne Johnson has teased a possible presidential run for years now,

New Sonic The Hedgehog Promo Asks If Dwayne Johnson Is President

The cat – or, should we say, hedgehog – is now out of the bag.

Just as they said they would do, Sega and Paramount Pictures ordered the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog film back to the drawing board after its first trailer was met with a ton of backlash from fans. The biggest issue people had with it was that the titular speedster looked like some cheap knock-off of the iconic video game character, what with his bizarre eyes and strangely human-esque teeth. And so, the VFX team worked hard to create a new design, one which would harken back to the classic games that we’re all so familiar with.

Thankfully, it seems they did their job, as the recent trailer finally revealed the redesign and suffice it to say, it was a huge hit with just about everyone. And now, building on that momentum, we’ve got another new look at Sonic the Hedgehog,

Ace Ventura 3 Ready To Go, Just Waiting On Jim Carrey’s Final Approval

Next year’s Sonic the Hedgehog will see Jim Carrey returning to the big screen in 2020 and with early reactions to the film saying that he gives a fantastic performance, the actor could be poised to make a big comeback. In fact, by the looks of things, that’s definitely going to happen and it could even involve Carrey going back to some of the roles that made him such a huge star.

Case in point: the Ace Ventura: Pet Detective franchise. We Got This Covered brought you the news the other week (which was later backed up by trusted tipster Daniel Rpk) that a third installment might happen and from what we understand, several studios are interested in the project. But of course, there’d be no way to do it without Carrey’s involvement. Should he give his final approval though, the movie would start to come together very quickly.

Rabbids Movie Fires Back Up at Lionsgate with New Director

  • MovieWeb
A Rabbids movie is coming our way, courtesy of the folks at Lionsgate. It's come to light that the studio has secured the rights to the popular video game franchise and intends to bring the raving rabbit-like creatures to life on the big screen. Todd Strauss-Schulson (Isn't It Romantic) is being eyed to helm the adaptation, which is said to be a hybrid of live-action and CGI animation, perhaps akin to the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

According to a new report, Todd Strauss-Schulson is in advanced negotiations to direct. The project had previously been in development at Sony before changing hands. Strauss-Schulson previously directed the 2015 slasher The Final Girls, as well as episodes of The Inbetweeners and Zach Stone is Gonna Be Famous. His most recent effort, Isn't It Romantic starring Rebel Wilson hit theaters earlier this year and brought in a modest $48 million at the box office against a decent-to-good response from critics.

Batman Voice Actor Teases Big Game Awards Reveal

At long last, the sequel Batman fans have been waiting for is on the cusp of being revealed.

Or is it? Truthfully, we don’t know, but if a recent teaser provided by voice actor Roger Craig Smith is any indication, we know, at the very least, that something big is on the horizon. Together with Kevin Conroy, Smith’s performances as the Dark Knight are some of the most memorable and, as luck would have it, Warner Bros’ Arkham Series is among that number. More specifically, Smith stood in for Conroy to voice Gotham’s protector in spinoff title Origins, a fact that, when paired with recent leaks, appears to all but confirm the imminent announcement of a sequel.

You can check the frustratingly vague teaser for yourselves below:

Birds of Prey Is the Most Anticipated Movie of 2020 According to IMDb

  • MovieWeb
IMDb has revealed its list of the top ten most-anticipated movies of 2020. The new year is just around the corner and, while there are several major releases still set to hit theaters before we leave 2019, and the decade, behind us, it's time to start looking ahead to what's coming our way next year. According to IMDb, Birds of Prey is the movie that people are most excited to see in 2020, which is more good news for Warner Bros. and DC Films.

Birds of Prey sees the return of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and also features Ewan McGregor as the villain Black Mask. The R-rated spin-off looks to continue DC's recent hot streak, following Aquaman, Shazam and Joker. Coming in at number two, in something of a big surprise, is Sonic the Hedgehog. Initially, this video game adaptation was met with a wave of backlash over the main character's design.

Evidence Mounts That Ace Ventura 3 Is Definitely In The Works

Next year’s Sonic the Hedgehog will mark Jim Carrey’s first role in a major comedy movie in a while and fans are hoping that the actor is now due for a comeback. By the looks of things, that’s definitely going to happen and said comeback could even see Carrey revisit a couple of characters that helped make him a star.

For instance, word has it that Ace Ventura 3 is in development at Warner Bros., with the actor returning to the part of the Pet Detective. We Got This Covered brought you that news as an exclusive scoop last week and now, a separate source appears to have confirmed our intel.

Scarlett Johansson Had No Idea The Black Widow Trailer Was Coming Out

More Black Widow chatter fresh off the hype-mill that always snowballs in the wake of a new trailer. Well, unless it’s for Sonic the Hedgehog. Ouch!

Scarlett Johansson has been back on the promotional wagon and has been candid about her thrill at the promo’s release in a new interview on The Late Late Show With Stephen Colbert, saying:

“Nobody told me that it was coming out. I actually woke up and I got a text message from Chris Evans, and he was like, ‘The trailer looks great!’ I don’t know what he was doing up at 5 a.m. That’s a whole other story.

She added:

“I was also as excited as everybody else. I had no idea it was even coming out. They didn’t even tell me. I don’t know, they keep everything from me.”

First Reaction To Sonic The Hedgehog Say It’s A Flawed But Fun Movie

Regardless of the final consensus that fans and critics reach, Sonic The Hedgehog will go down in video game movie history as an important event.

Never before, has any major film studio committed to redesigning its central star from the ground up based on feedback. Of course, Paramount found it preferable to sink millions into having Sega’s mascot recreated in favor of attracting even more backlash over the character’s original live-action iteration, but ultimately, the motivations for doing so matter little. Sonic, thankfully, looks less like a human wearing a blue-furred onesie and more akin to the otherworldly Hog he’s meant to be.

Is the second attempt a flawless recreation? No, but it’s close enough, as We Got This Covered has spoken to someone who’s seen some test screenings of the film and it seems the adaptation is all the better for it. Sonic himself

New Sonic the Hedgehog Ccxp Poster Is for Old School Gamers
An awesome retro Sonic the Hedgehog poster had been revealed for Brazil's Ccxp. The new poster comes after a successful redesign launch for the upcoming movie. It was looking pretty grim for the video game movie when the first trailer debuted. Video game fans were very vocal about their disappointment in the iconic hedgehog's original design, which led Paramount to go back to the drawing board. Now, Sonic is back and he looks a lot more like he does in the video games and fans are a lot more excited to see the movie now.

The Ccxp poster for Sonic the Hedgehog features Jim Carrey's Dr. Robotnik in the background, drawn to look more like the video game version of the villain. Sonic is running beneath him on ground that looks like the first installment from the video game series. It's a cool nod to the character's roots and

Cats Movie Has Taylor Swift in Love with Its Weirdness

Cats Movie Has Taylor Swift in Love with Its Weirdness
You would not ordinarily think of the musical stage show Cats, and think of it as a horror film. But from what we have seen so far this is exactly what the upcoming big screen adaptation looks like. Since the release of the first trailer, reactions have stemmed from thinking it looks a bit 'off', to some theorising it is the first sign of the apocalypse.

Well, not everybody shares these critical feelings towards the look of the film, with singer and star of the movie Taylor Swift actually being rather fond of the peculiar aesthetic.

"When I was younger, I used to get questions like, 'Where do you see yourself in 10 years?' I'd try to answer. As I get older, I'm learning that wisdom is learning how dumb you are compared to how much you are going to know. I really had an amazing time with Cats. I

Ace Ventura 3 Reportedly In The Works, Jim Carrey May Return

Jim Carrey cemented his status as a comedy icon with some unforgettable roles in the ’90s. One of the most memorable ones was as pet detective Ace Ventura, whom Carrey played in the original movie featuring the character and its successful sequel. And now, according to sources close to Wgtc – the same ones who told us Bill Murray was returning for Ghostbusters 3 and that a Scream reboot was in development, both of which have since been confirmed – the actor may be reprising the titular role for Ace Ventura 3.

Morgan Creek Productions produced and released the first two films in collaboration with Warner Bros. and the same production houses are said to be discussing the possibility of doing a second sequel, while Carrey himself has reportedly expressed interest in reprising the character for a third time. That being said, the actor has always shown a reluctance to portray the same roles

‘Cats’ Director Was “Fascinated” By Negative Trailer Reaction & Says Film’s Final CGI Will Be Much Better

If there is a film trailer Hall of Shame, 2019 would have had several inductees. However, for as bad as the first “Aladdin” trailer was, or the initial glimpse at “Sonic the Hedgehog,” the early “Cats” preview will likely go down as one of the worst-received trailers of the last decade, and sparked massive mocking blowback. No matter who you ask, that trailer was either laughably bad, downright creepy, or both.

Joker Weird Trailer Brings in Harley Quinn and Other Movie Jokers
Aldo Jones is back with another Weird Trailer that takes aim at Todd Phillips' Joker. Jones has been making his crazy pop culture explosion trailers for a long time now, and he seems to be getting better and better. Obviously, Joaquin Phoenix isn't the first actor to portray the Clown Prince of Crime, so there was a lot of room to spread out and give the other actors some time to shine in the new Weird Trailer. Even Tommy Wiseau gets his version of the Joker into the bizarre clip.

Joker is still in the box office top ten and recently cleared the $1 billion mark. The movie is still being talked about, which means that it was a prime candidate for Aldo Jones to work his magic on. Jared Leto and Heath Ledger all make appearances in the Weird Trailer more than once and they seem to fit in quite seamlessly,

Insiders Say Original Sonic The Hedgehog Design Made The Movie Look Like A Horror Show

We recently spoke to a few people who were lucky enough to see early test screenings of Sonic the Hedgehog and let’s just say that it’s a good thing Paramount took five months to redesign the titular character. Apparently, the original design made the film “look like a horror show” and every moment the supposedly lovable hedgehog was on screen it “made people in the theater feel uneasy.”

It’s safe to say that that’s probably not the reaction the studio was hoping for and thankfully, they revamped the design once they heard how much everyone hated Sonic’s new look. It took almost half a year, but it definitely appears to have been worth it, as the new trailer featuring the updated protagonist is getting much better reviews and it now seems that Paramount’s saved the potential blockbuster from bombing at the box office by

Jim Carrey Reportedly Steals The Show In Sonic The Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog has undergone a big transformation over the past five months, but one thing that seems to have consistently remained the same is Jim Carrey’s hilarious turn as Dr. “Eggman” Robotnik. When the first horrific trailer for this highly-anticipated movie hit the Internet, people couldn’t stop roasting it. The lone bright spot though appeared to be the comedian’s take on the cartoonish antagonist. And apparently, he maintains that same energy throughout the film and completely overshadows everyone else.

Wgtc recently spoke to someone who saw a test screening of the feature and they say that Carrey easily steals the show. They also went on to say that the beloved actor is finally back to his old form. This likely means that viewers can expect the same over-the-top, slapstick comedy that the 57-year-old has dazzled us with for decades.

Ever since his meteoric rise on the sketch series In Living Color,

Cats Movie Got a Subtle CGI Redesign Following Huge Trailer Backlash

Cats Movie Got a Subtle CGI Redesign Following Huge Trailer Backlash
Cats director Tom Hooper reveals that some of the backlash towards the first trailer led to some redesigns. People were caught off guard when the first look at the movie was unveiled. The world was not ready for a furry, seemingly nude Taylor Swift, or for the sight of Judi Dench with whiskers, or a feline version of James Corden spitting on his peers. Even months after the fact, people are still terrified and a bit scarred from what Hooper brought into the world. Now, he admits that some of the initial backlash had an influence on the redesign process.

Tom Hooper did not think he was making something that would get such a crazy reaction when he prepared the first Cats trailer. "I was just so fascinated because I didn't think it was controversial at all," he says. "So it was quite entertaining. Cats was the #1 trending topic in the world,

Sonic The Hedgehog Redesign Took Five Months To Complete

Such is the world that we live in these days that one of the biggest controversies to come out of Hollywood in 2019 was the appearance of a CGI blue hedgehog. To be fair, the initial design of Sonic the Hedgehog‘s title character was utterly terrifying, with the video game hero’s unnervingly human teeth and generally unsettling rendering causing huge backlash from fans.

In a Sonic movie, people would generally expect the character to look at least somewhat similar to how he’s depicted on consoles, and it must have been a huge blow to the studio to have to go back to the drawing board and delay the project for months as they spent millions on reworking the design to please a fanbase that had definitively rejected their first glimpse of footage.
