In November, the film Sonic go out to the movies. And to start his promotion, Paramount Pictures unveiled a few weeks ago a first trailer on the internet. The producers expected a tidal wave in the virality... but were taken aback by a blow of mouth generalized fans.
The reason ? The way the hero was represented. Stylized so very humanSonic loses some of its charm. It must be said that he is a little scary and looks more like a hairy child with ears than the little hedgehog we all ran at a crazy speed behind our game console.
After the apologies of the director of the film on Twitter, the latter promised that the style of the superhero will be changed for the film. And mastered or not, this huge blow of communication which made speak about many media continues to agitate the fans. There is just 3 days, a surfer by the name of Artur Baranov has also unveiled a retouch of the trailer of the film ... changing Sonic as it should be if the creators had respected the original character of the video game.
The video was viewed more than1.6 million times (in 3 days then) and received 97% positive reviews when the original trailer has received ... only 40%. And yes, the icons of popular culture apparently do not really belong to those who have the rightsbut more to the fans. And that's good news! Below you will find the original trailer and that of Arthur Baranov for fun to make the comparison.
