Production details on Sonic the Hedgehog 2 – including the start date and working title – have been revealed ahead of filming. "Rampage" wasn't much of a game to adapt -- it's just the story of three giant monsters terrorizing cities and eating people while the army tries to shoot them. It's significantly less morally repugnant than the first one, but it's certainly still, ah, problematic in a lot of ways. 31. A Quiet Place Part 2 will release on April 23, 2021, and Top Gun: Maverick will release on July 2, 2021, transferring each highly-anticipated films out of 2020. 46. "Pokemon 4Ever" (2002)This one has time travel, I think? The hour-long episode will be hosted by Chris Hardwick and will debut Sunday, December 13. As the story's villain, he's having an absolute blast the entire time, with a cast that just as often also leans into their goofy video game characters. Sonic the Hedgehog is one of Sega’s most popular franchises, yet it’s no secret that bringing a video game to the big screen has never been an easy task, especially for it to be done well. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 is set to be released in theaters on April 8, 2022. It's telling that the games would eventually start to ape the movies. The production dates given could still change, depending on the ongoing health crisis, however, with movie studios already finding ways to continue filming during this time, it’s unlikely. 24. In this case, the random splicing of clips from the "House of the Dead" gameplay between shots. There's a marked leap in technical wizardry with this one, turning the franchise from B-level afterthought to B-level greatness. "Tekken" (2010)A perfectly OK movie about people beating the crap out of each other, to match a perfectly OK video game series about people beating the crap out of each other. Let's sort them out, by ranking all the video game movies through "Sonic the Hedgehog.". 45. "Pokemon: The First Movie" (1999)There's no such thing as a good "Pokemon" movie, but there is such a thing as a "Pokemon" movie that might make you cry. 40. 13. 21. Germaine Wong. Paul W.S. "Warcraft" (2016)"It's like 'Lord of the Rings' if there weren't any Hobbits to explain everything to," my friend told me after we watched it. It's an excuse to watch a 30-foot wolf, 20-foot gorilla and 60-foot crocodile climb buildings in Chicago and wreck stuff, and in that way, it's pretty faithful to the game that spawned it. This movie is like shockingly sharply written. "Resident Evil: Extinction" (2007)This one has zombie birds. “Sonic the Hedgehog” set a domestic opening weekend record for a video game adaptation with $58 million, going on to gross $146 million domestically and $306 million worldwide. "Mortal Kombat: Annihilation" (1997)Feels like a cheap knock-off of the first "Mortal Kombat" rather than an actual sequel. "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li" (2009)Usually, bad video game movies are the "boring" kind of bad, but the second attempt at a "Street Fighter" movie almost manages to achieve "accidental camp classic" status at some points. "Pokemon: The Movie 2000: The Power of One" (2000)I always have trouble remembering which "Pokemon" movie is which, and this one's distracting double colons in the title doesn't help. Anyway, this film works on sheer novelty value alone today, and because of a couple of great performances by Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo. And it's as much of a joke as you'd expect a feature-length ad to be. But this movie can't even get that right. 4. To its credit, the movie version goes for that, keying into the game's ideas and vision and broadening it into a visual approach that's generally kind of interesting. 6. "Postal" (2008) The pinnacle of director Uwe Boll's string of horrendous video game movies (he has five that qualify for this list by getting theatrical releases somewhere), but to be fair it's probably still a better work of art than the game it's based on. Abraham Fraser will also be returning as Project Manager, along with director Jeff Fowler and writers Pat Casey and Josh Miller. "Ratchet & Clank" (2016)We finally got to see what it would look like if you took a bunch of random cinematic scenes out of a game and cut them into a movie. "Hitman: Agent 47" (2015)As an adaptation of a stealthy game series it's just OK, but as an inventive R-rated action movie it's actually really enjoyable. Where does the hilarious kiddie flick “Sonic the Hedgehog” land? "Wing Commander" (1999)Remember that brief moment when Hollywood wanted to make Freddie Prinze Jr. into a thing? This movie comes with about a thousand winks. "House of the Dead" (2003)Of all the Uwe Boll movies on this list, "House of the Dead" is the most watchable because it manages just the right balance of filmmaking ineptitude and inexplicable-yet-funny creative flourishes. How? The first movie was pushed back because of the distribution changing hands, and then again for the VFX to be overhauled. 1.

While Sonic 2 is in the works, the first movie’s director – Jeff Fowler – has also been keeping busy, having recently been announced as director for a Pink Panther reboot, which is in an earlier development phase. "Pokemon 3: The Movie" (2001)This is the one where a girl gets a Pokemon to be her dad after her real dad disappears. "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" (2001)Thus far, this is the mainstream ideal for what a video game movie could be: a fun, light action flick that operates as a real movie. While you wait for that, we’ve rounded up 6 things you might have missed in the first-look trailer for The Walking Dead Season 10’s return, including a glimpse of Hershel Jr. as a child and Negan’s wife Lucille, played by Hilarie Burton. “The Final Chapter” has more awesome monster-beat downs and more horrific deaths, and it goes crazy in embracing being over-the-top. 32.
