Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla Sign, Lil Yachty, and Sueco the Child team up for 'Speed Me Up,' the official Sonic the Hedgehog movie theme

It's pretty catchy!

Every movie has to have a theme song to go with it, and Sonic the Hedgehog is no different. SEGA has gathered up Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla Sign, Lil Yachty, and Sueco the Child to perform 'Speed Me Up,' which is actually a pretty great tune! Check out the official music video for the track above.

New Sonic the Hedgehog movie ad introduces us to fluffy Sonic

Okay, that's cute

A new spot for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie has aired in Hungary, and its given us a look at a Sonic we haven't seen anywhere else yet. We're not quite sure how it happens, but something ends up giving Sonic a rather fluffy makeover. Anyone care to guess what gives Sonic this look?

Another Sonic the Hedgehog movie billboard spotted

Get a load of THIS, Sonic

In about 3 weeks, we'll all be heading to theaters to check out the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. To remind you to get your tickets ahead of time, yet another billboard for the movie has been spotted. Kolma risked life and limb while on the highway in central Florida to snap us this "Chillin' Vs. Villain" billboard, and we're happy to share it!

Early estimates see $20-$30 million dollar opening for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie

Will this forecast ring true?

How big of a hit will the Sonic the Hedgehog movie be? The prognosticators over at Box Office Pro have sat down in front of their magic ball to see what lies ahead, and their data shows an opening 4-day total in the range of $20 to $30 million. See what lead to that decision below.

PROS:

Older fans of the iconic video game franchise may turn out, particularly parents who will want to introduce the series to the current generation of young ones.

Social media metrics have been increasingly positive as sentiment has improved in recent months thanks to the studio’s decision to “correct” Sonic’s design after online outcry earlier this year.

The holiday weekend should be conducive to strong family play, and getting a three-week jump on Pixar’s Onward provides fair breathing room.

CONS:

In general, video game adaptations have quite a sorted history at the box office. It remains to be seen whether or not word of mouth and reviews can carry this in the way they did for Detective Pikachu.

UPDATE - Deadline has shared a report with a different set of figures. Their data shows the film pulling in $41M-$47M during the same 4-day period. Thanks to OperationGamer17 for the heads up!
