Sonic the Hedgehog Footage Reaction

You want a Sonic the Hedgehog footage reaction? Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’re all on board with the Detective Pikachu movie at this point, right? But what about the other CGI-enhanced video game film hitting theaters this year? You know – Sonic the Hedgehog? Unlike Pikachu, no Sonic footage has been released to the public yet.

But now, some Sonic the Hedgehog footage has made its debut at CinemaCon, and we have the details.

Rocketman Footage Reaction

Following the success of Bohemian Rhapsody last year (and during awards season), Paramount Pictures is looking to have a hit themselves by telling the life story of one of rock’s biggest stars: Elton John.

Rocketman stars Kingsman: The Secret Service star Taron Egerton as the legendary singer of songs like “Tiny Dancer,” “Crocodile Rock,” and of course “Rocketman.” The film follows his trajectory from a young kid being classically trained in piano to one of the most flamboyant, glamorous and entertaining singers in the history of rock and roll. /Film’s own Ben Pearson and Peter Sciretta were on hand at CinemaCon to see some new Rocketman footage, and we’re happy to hear that this looks outstanding.

The Rules of Toy Story

Toy Story 4 faces an immediate uphill battle: how do you follow up Toy Story 3, one of the best sequels ever made and a film that felt like a perfect conclusion to the entire series? Pixar and director Josh Cooley have a lot to prove, but we know this much — we don’t like to bet against the people who made Up, Inside Out, and Finding Nemo.

/Film’s Peter Sciretta and Ben Pearson were in attendance at CinemaCon 2019 in Las Vegas when Disney presented new footage from Toy Story 4. Can it match the absurd highs of the previous film in the series? Let’s take a look.
