Our Thoughts: Wow! That’s a lot better! When the original Sonic trailer dropped, we were justifiably terrified of it just like everyone else. While there’s still going to be some clearly groan-worthy jokes, the aesthetic is at least on point now. Looking forward to seeing Jim Carrey as Robotnik, and not having nightmares of my childhood hero.
