Paramount Pictures' Sonic the Hedgehog is shaping up to be a major hit at the box office, and there's no denying that Jim Carrey will play a key role in making audiences all around the world go to see the new video game movie.
The latest video for Sonic puts the spotlight on Carrey, giving us a chance to learn a whole lot more about his take on the blue speedster's greatest foe — who wants nothing more than to possess his powers.
In the movie, Dr. Eggman will do everything he can to catch Sonic — or rather "secure it, neutralize it, see what makes it tick."
The latest tracking data suggests that the Jeff Fowler-directed adaptation of Sega's greatest game series could very well open in the US and Canada on par with other major live-action video game movies like Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time ($30,095,259) and Rampage ($35,753,093). — which would be a huge achievement in and of itself.
With Sonic the Hedgehog coming to theaters in just three days, be sure to watch said featurette 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.
