Paramount’s latest take on the video game movie – Sonic the Hedgehog 2 – is less than a month away from premiering. In efforts to generate a little bit more hype for the project, the studio has released a new trailer and (more importantly) a new poster for the film.
As you can see from the image embedded below and the comparison at the header of this page, the folks at Paramount have drawn on classic Sonic art for inspiration for this one. The poster design mimics the old, classic Genesis/Mega Drive Sonic 2 art, with Robotnik’s angry little face seething in the corner as Sonic and Tails stand smugly in the foreground. If you look closely, you’ll see Knuckles hiding in there, too.
You can also check out a new trailer for the film – featuring Sonic, Tails and Doctor Robotnik and Idirs Elba as Knuckles all going wild over the Chaos Emerald – below.
