Back in November I shared what amounted to be the brand-new Official Trailer for the upcoming Paramount Pictures release “Sonic The Hedgehog”. This new trailer came out because there was a massive public outcry about the character looking “too human”. Though I am generally right on top of posting trailer things, I was glad that I was late for that first one since the hoot and hollering found it going away and being redone. It would have been a lot of unnecessary work amounting to no clip in the post. You can click the highlighted text at the beginning of this paragraph to see the new one and then we can get down to business on these TV Spots and Featurettes. For this film I decided to include the two different items in one longer running post for ease of enjoyment. I’ve found that doing it like this worked out great for posts about “Avengers: Endgame” and “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” which I ran on the PiercingMetal.com website. I’ll start this speedy bit of fun with one of the promotional posters and the premise before I get into the clips for your viewing pleasure. At the last of them I will repeat the casting for good measure. Let’s race….
The Plot: Sonic, a blue anthropomorphic hedgehog from an alternate dimension, comes to Earth to escape malevolent forces that seek to harness his power of super-speed. After accidentally causing a massive power outage while hiding out in the town of Green Hills, Montana, Sonic is targeted by the government who then hire the tyrannical roboticist Dr. Robotnik to hunt him down. Meanwhile, Green Hills sheriff Tom Wachowski meets Sonic and decides to help him evade capture, collect his rings, and stop Robotnik from using Sonic’s powers for world domination.
