Sonic The Hedgehog 2019 Movie is Ugly

Today, Paramount Pictures released the trailer for the upcoming Sonic The Hedgehog (2019) realistic movie adaptation. But, unfortunately, I find Sonic to be quite ugly. Here's the trailer. If I'm going to somehow watch this movie, I would basically do it for Jim Carrey's acting. Also, it's saddening to see this movie's producer is from Fast & Furious.

A Sing Street musical is coming to Off Broadway’s New York Theatre Workshop, developed by the team...
