The first Sonic The Hedgehog movie trailer (opens in new tab) is out and the internet's initial verdict is: what the heck is that?
There's a range of reactions. Some people are comparing Jim Carrey's moustache to Stalin for some reason, others are fascinated by the grotesque almost-human proportions of Sonic's CGI form. Look at his strange, long legs and conditioned furriness. He has human-shaped hands but no fingernails, and he's wearing shoes and no pants. Why?
But hey, everyone's talking about it, and lots of grown ups will go and see it ironically, and to enjoy some vintage Jim Carrey gurning. Here's are some of the web's reactions so far.
What the hell was that?
