Super Bowl 2020 is upon us, as Paramount Pictures has released an explosive "Big Game Spot" for Sonic the Hedgehog, putting the spotlight on the titular hero's global fight with Jim Carrey's Doctor Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik.
Considering that one of the most successful video game movies of the last decade, Legendary Pictures' WarCraft, made more money at the box office in the Middle Kingdom than the US, it's not surprising that the blue protagonist will battle Doctor Eggman all around the world, even on the Great Wall of China.
Just two days ago, the team at Paramount has shared online two action-packed TV spots for the highly anticipated movie, as we're right in the middle of the final Sonic the Hedgehog marketing push.
Helmed by Jeff Fowler (Gopher Broke, Where the Wild Things Are), Sonic the Hedgehog's starring Ben Schwartz (Modern Family, DuckTales), James Marsden (Enchanted, X-Men: The Last Stand), Tika Sumpter (Ride Along, Think Like a Man), Neal McDonough (Captain America: The First Avenger, Band of Brothers), Adam Pally (Californication, Taking Woodstock) and Jim Carrey (Liar Liar, Bruce Almighty) — whose return to comedy will definitely make the whole experience more enjoyable.
Without further ado, take a look at the intense Super Bowl TV spot for Sonic the Hedgehog down below:
Based on the global blockbuster videogame franchise from Sega, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG tells the story of the world’s speediest hedgehog as he embraces his new home on Earth. In this live-action adventure comedy, Sonic and his new best friend Tom (James Marsden) team up to defend the planet from the evil genius Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey) and his plans for world domination. The family-friendly film also stars Tika Sumpter and Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic.
