Paramount Pictures had to deal with a bit of a nightmare scenario when the reveal of their Sonic the Hedgehog movie was downright laughable. The reaction was so unfavorable that the studio chose to overhaul the design of the SEGA video game character and push the movie back from a November release last year to a February release this year. Thankfully, the new character design has been approved by fans, and it looks like the movie is tracking to have a solid opening for the Presidents Day weekend in February, which also happens to be Valentine’s Day weekend.

Remember Fanboys? It was a comedy released in 2009 following a group of friends in 1999 who decide to break into Skywalker Ranch in an attempt to steal a rough cut of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. But it’s not just because they want to see it early. The group learns that one among them has been diagnosed with cancer, and they don’t know if he’ll make it in time to see the movie. It’s a fairly cheesy comedy with some heightened elements, but it’s a fun romp for Star Wars fans.
However, it sounds like a whole new group of fans might get a similar treatment with a Fanboys sequel. Writer Adam F. Goldberg recently revealed that he’s meeting with the original film’s director Kyle Newman to discuss possibilities for Fanboys 2, and it sounds like it could focus on an attempt to steal the elusive Snyder Cut of Justice League.
