Fans of the classic Sega Mega Drive game, Sonic the Hedgehog, will, today, finally be able to watch the highly anticipated trailer of the live-action movie that will hit our screens later this year! Check it out at the bottom of the article!
Starring Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic and Jim Carrey as the evil Dr. Robotnic, fans have been concerned about whether Carrey is up to the job.
But it seems that they need not have worried. An image leaked by SegaBits that shows Carrey as Sonic's infamous arch enemy looks pretty spot on to us!
We think it's his trademark crazy eyes that really sell it.
And just wait until you hear how exactly he plans to portray this super villain. Believe us, you will not be disappointed...
Did you know that Jim Carrey has appeared in over forty-five feature films?
So, unsurprisingly, he is one of the top fifty highest paid actors of all time.
His breakthrough role was starring in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.His wacky and somewhat outrageous behavior drew in audiences across the globe and the film grossed over $72 million at the box office. All righty then!
Continuing the comedy theme, he went on to further success with The Mask.He starred alongside Cameron Diaz as a boring bank clerk who transforms into a wacky and wild superhero when he puts on a magical mask. Ooh, somebody stop me!
And it seemed that Carrey was unstoppable.
It was clear that Carrey was going to be a presence on our screens for the foreseeable future, whether we liked it or not.
He then went on to star in several more successful movies.
He then decided that he wanted to try something with a little bit more depth.And he found this with the comedy-drama, The Truman Show, in which he played Truman Banks, a man whose real life was, in fact, a hugely successful reality TV show. The movie was widely praised and Carrey won his first Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama. And we definitely think he deserved it.
But he soon returned to his slapstick roots.Starring in Me, Myself & Irene in 2000. Not one of our favorites of his, if we are completely honest. But no-one can be perfect all the time.
Proving that he's just one big kid,
After The Grinch, he starred in his most financially successful film to date. Can you guess which one it was?Bruce Almighty. WTF! We were surprised too! We enjoyed this film wherein Carrey plays a man given omnipotent abilities whilst God takes a vacation, but it's definitely not our favorite Carrey creation. We'd do so much more if we were God for even just one day!
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was next.
And no-one can say that he didn't work hard.
Then he decided to reprise his role as Lloyd Christmas.In the third (and hopefully final) Dumb and Dumber movie, Dumb and Dumber To. Unfortunately, this movie failed to resonate with the younger generation, many of who had not seen the original films. Definitely an example of a movie that is no longer relevant to today's society. Some things are better left in the past.
And now he is going to star in the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog live-action film.
The movie itself is set to hit our screens on November 8th this year.
Ben Schwartz will be voicing Sonic the Hedgehog.Ben is most famous for playing Jean-Ralphino Saperstein on Parks and Recreation and, more recently, for joining House of Lies as Clyde Oberholt. And here he is talking about his role in the new movie!
Paul Rudd was also set to play a lead role.
Sonic will appear as a CGI character within a real-world setting.
Many preferred the original graphics.
Some even decided to tweak the designs themselves.

But it's not Sonic that's got everyone talking at the moment.
Check out the first leaked picture for yourself.
Fans thought that the picture wasn't real at first.
Can confirm that's real. We saw two trailers at CinemaCon, one which was entirely focused on Carrey as Robotnik. He… https://t.co/5VXW3HjsDi— Scott Wampler™ (@Scott Wampler™)1556561720.0
He then went on to say that Carrey will be playing Dr. Robotnik in a very particular way.
@ScottWamplerBMD “Late 90s Jim Carrey mode” just completely sold me on this.— Robert Yaniz Jr. (@Robert Yaniz Jr.)1556563290.0
But what's with all the hair?
But it seems like he might lose his locks later in the movie.
