Sonic the Hedgehog Movie

Back in May the first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog, a movie based on the SEGA video game character of the same name, was released by Paramount Pictures. The response could not have been worse. The response was so overwhelmingly negative, in fact, that the movie instantly became the internet’s favorite subject for jokes and memes galore. It was a disaster.

The reason for this wildfire of negativity was the design of the title character. It was…poor, to put it nicely. The damage was so great that Paramount was forced to throw away a significant amount of time, effort, and money that had gone into designing and animating the character, and start over in hopes of stopping the bleeding before it was too late.

Now, after deleting the first trailer, poster, and more (though the internet never forgets, of course), Paramount has released another trailer with the newly designed Sonic. You can check it out below.

Sonic the Hedgehog Movie Header

Though video game film adaptations have garnered very mixed to horrible results, the craze isn’t ending anytime soon. Paramount has released the first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog, a CGI-animation and live-action hybrid that sees the title character, who is animated, interacting in the real world.

Now we get to see why Sonic (voice of Ben Schwartz) is here and how he will protect this world from the likes of Dr. Robotnik (Jim Carrey). Check out the trailer and a new poster below.

‘Alien: Isolation’ Pre-Order Bonus Missions Will Be DLC Later; New Trailer Released

Alien: Isolation Ripley and Crew

A few days ago, it was revealed that those who pre-order the upcoming video game Alien: Isolation would receive special pre-order bonus missions involving the likenesses and voices of most of the cast of the 1979 classic movie that heavily inspired the game, Ridley Scott’s Alien, including Sigourney Weaver as Ripley.

While the thought of playing a very promising looking game as these iconic characters is extremely exciting, the general consensus on the announcement has been—and is almost every time similarly awesome exclusive pre-order bonuses are announced—that it’s not cool to force people to pay for the game in advance just to gain access to content.

But, as is usually the case, it was assumed that the two Alien bonus missions would still be made available to everyone at some point, and this has been confirmed in a statement released by SEGA. You can read the statement and watch your favorite Alien characters in video game form in the newly released trailer below.

Alien: Isolation

In January a new video game based on Ridley Scott’s original Alien was revealed, and very much looks like the one fans of the movies and video games have been waiting for.

The game, titled Alien: Isolation, is not set for release until late this year, but to hold us over some developer diaries have been released. The newest one is titled “Creating the Alien,” and discusses what went into faithfully recreating such an iconic creature.

You can see the video, as well as a second developer diary titled “Origins,” below.

Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg To Direct Sega-Nintendo Rivalry Film ‘Console Wars’

BAADASSSSS!   |

Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are one of the best comedy writing and directing teams in Hollywood for many good reasons. Here are a few: Superbad, Pineapple Express, and This is the End. I even have a soft spot in my heart (which several doctors have told me could become a health problem over time) for The Green Hornet, and I’m even willing to forgive them for The Watch. These guys may make the occasional misstep, but when they come back they do so with CGI demon genitalia swinging and stoner jokes erupting from every unplugged orifice.

Since This is the End was loved and laughed at (for all of the right reasons) by many last year, the boys are smoking hot again and piling new film and television development projects on their plate like they’re hitting a Golden Corral after a morning of getting righteously baked. Some of these may never see the light of a movie screen, but one that I personally hope does is their adaptation of Blake J. Harris‘ forthcoming book Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battle that Defined a Generation. Rogen and Goldberg have signed on to write and direct the film, with Oscar-winning powerhouse Scott Rudin on board to produce.

Alien: Isolation Video Game

A new video game based on the hit Alien movie franchise is on the way! I know, I know. This is not something that has gone well in the past. But stick with me for a bit.

The new game is titled Alien: Isolation, and it goes back to the roots of what made Ridley Scott’s 1979 original classic so terrifying. Instead of running around shooting aliens, as you have in the previous game attempts, this game is a survival horror. There is only one alien. THE alien. And you do not want to come face to face with it.

Continue below to read a description of the game and see the first trailer, as well as a lengthy chat about the game with more peeks at the gameplay.
