Sonic The Hedgehog Trailer Debuts Featuring Jim Carrey

Sonic the Hedgehog the is the latest pop culture icon of the past to get a big-screen debut and today Paramount Pictures released the first trailer for the live-action/CGI adaptation of the classic Sega video game character.

Starring James Marsden as the lawman who discovers the speedy hedgehog and Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik, the film puts Sonic in the real world alongside human actors. There are the obvious nods to the classic video game (“gotta go fast” and the instantly recognizable sound effects) and Carrey appears to be back in his old comedy form with yelling and facial expressions not seen since his films like Me, Myself, & Irene.

The film hits screens on November 8th, 2019.
