Carrey and Sonic were both trending Tuesday on Twitter as Paramount Pictures released the first public peek.
The movie stars a blue hedgehog popularized by Sega in their video game series. The hero has supersonic speed and uses it to combat antagonist Doctor Eggman and his evil plots.

The only thing about the Sonic movie I’m sure about is Jim Carrey as Eggman. The man is channeling his insane 90s persona as seen in Ace Ventura and The Riddler. He will undoubtedly be the glue that holds the film together and make it entertaining. pic.twitter.com/jd2IdTLHTs
