Sonic the Hedgehog Featurette

Jim Carrey had a meteoric rise to fame in the 1990s thanks to a string of comedy hits like Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask, and Dumb & Dumber, not to mention a campy villainous turn as The Riddler in Batman Forever, all in the span of a year and a half. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Jim Carrey get that silly, but as a new Sonic the Hedgehog featurette shows us, that changes this weekend.

Sonic the Hedgehog, based on the Sega video game of the same name, brings in Jim Carrey to play the evil genius Dr. Robotnik, who wants to use his technologically advanced machines to take over the world and control humanity. But in order to do that, he needs to harness the power that gives the speedy hedgehog Sonic (voiced by Ben Schwartz of Parks and Recreation) his super speed. And so begins a game of cat-and-mouse, where Jim Carrey gets to ham it up as a bad guy once again. Read More »

Sonic the Hedgehog Clip

The release of Sonic the Hedgehog is just two weeks away. The SEGA video game character took some extra time coming to the big screen to get a much-needed makeover that wouldn’t terrify audiences with his human teeth and wide-set eyes (the new version looks very close to his classic design). Was it worth the wait? You’ll have to watch the new Sonic the Hedgehog clip and Super Bowl spot to get a better idea. Read More »

NECA Ace Venture: Pet Detective Action Figure

NECA is responsible for bringing us some of the coolest action figures from blockbuster genre films like Predator, Halloween, Alien, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Child’s Play, Godzilla, Gremlins, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and countless more. But they’ve also given us action figures for movies that don’t usually get any collectible action figures, such as A Christmas Story, Pan’s Labyrinth, Home Alone, The Hateful Eight, and National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation. Now one more is one the way.

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective is the movie that turned Jim Carrey into a comedy superstar, and it sparked what would become what might be the most lucrative comedy career of the 1990s. NECA previously immortalized the standard version of Ace Ventura as an action figure, complete with animal accessories and his trademark tacky clothing made of real cloth. But now they’re giving us a much better version of Ace Ventura from when he pretends to need psychiatric care at the Shady Acres mental hospital. Read More »

Sonic the Hedgehog movie delay

Jim Carrey was on a Television Critics Association panel for the second season of his Showtime dramedy Kidding. He was supposed to have Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog movie premiering this fall, but the film has been delayed until next year as the filmmakers redesign the CGI Sonic character.

/Film asked Carrey how he feels about the delay and if he’s concerned about the fans having the power to impact and delay his work (even if the complaints were not about his performance specifically). Find out Carrey’s detailed, in-depth thoughts about the Sonic situation below. Read More »
