Sonic the Hedgehog made 70 million dollars domestically and 113 million worldwide in less than a week. It successfully beat Detective Pikachu to have the highest first weekend for a video game movie. The poll of the week is, did you watch Sonic the Hedgehog in theaters?

Nope and I don't plan to. But that's no criticism of that movie in particular nor criticism of Sonic, I spent countless nights playing the first Sonic games on my Megadrive back in the early 90's and much more recently I enjoyed Sonic Mania to the point of hoping for sequels to it.

I however plan to watch it on Netflix should it be available there sometime in the future (Same with Detective Pikachu).

EDIT: What's redbox?

It's basically vending machine version of Blockbuster where you can rent dvds and blu-rays



literally no desire to see it. It looks like something I'd hate. The 90s Sonic movie is enough thanks.

I want to see it but got no one to see it with. Went to see 1917 some days ago instead with my brother: good movie.

Plan to rent the Sonic movie at some point in the future.

No interest. Looks like a generic action family friendly movie.



There's no way I'll see this. I never liked the "character" of Sonic, whatever the hell that means, and wasn't much a fan of the games either. Last game in the series I played was Sonic Adventure 2 on the DC. And Sonic aside, it's not the type of movie that would have interested me much beyond the age of 11-12. That's not a slag on the people that are interested. I'm likely more puerile than they are. I just like better movies.

Sonic is one of my favorite series. However, I am not interested in movies.
I get tired of watching long videos.



I might check it out one day out of boredom once it's on Netflix or something, but I have no real interest in the film. Doesn't seem like anything that special that I'd have to go out of my way to watch it.

It's funny, while I love games (obviously) and love films, I never got into video game films. Probably because most are awful. But I do want to see both Detective Pikachu and Sonic at some point. And not I'm not ashamed in saying that as a 33 year old man lol. Quit hatin.

A couple buddies of mine have raved about it, and I think the new design is a vast improvement. Also miss seeing Jim Carrey in prime form like he was in the 90s, and he seems to be here.

It's nice to see anything Sega related do well. I was a snobby anti-Sega Nintendo guy back in the day (like 20-25 years ago), but I've really come around to them and got really into the DC JUST as they were exiting the hardware business. Now I've gained even more respect for them now that Nintendo is the only games-exclusive game in town after they left, and their games really are similar to them.
