The Sonic the Hedgehog movie's first trailer has freaked out the internet

The first Sonic The Hedgehog movie trailer 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?

Why does it have human teeth?

Why Gangsta's Paradise?

Could it get worse?

What's going on with Jim Carrey's outfit?

Can we have a fully live action version instead?
