Double take: Many were quick to compare Sonic to another upcoming live-action video game movie: Detective Pikachu.

Everyone's favorite blue blur makes the jump to live-action in the first trailer for Paramount's Sonic the Hedgehog. It stars Jim Carrey as villain Doctor Ivo Robotnik and actor/comedian Ben Schwartz as the voice of the title character.

A trailer for the forthcoming "Sonic the Hedgehog" movie was the talk of Twitter on Tuesday, but not just for the action in the preview.

And one lamented: "This might be one of the worst trailers I've ever seen". But with speeds of 760 miles per hour and a producer from the Fast & Furious, I'm suspicious that Sonic is really just out here trying to become part of Dominic Toretto's family. "Gangster's Paradise" plays in the background (and takes some awkward pauses that don't really work)? We're on board; we will, however, hold out hope that the VFX team isn't done with Sonic's teeth. Sonic himself might look awful, but this has some kind of odd potential. Be sure to like and subscribe to Collider for more movie news.

However, as BuzzFeed News reported in February of this year, the entire feature was simply a hastily thrown together PR play. It will supposedly launch in under two seconds, and is less than 30MB, which is around 70MB less than the current iteration.

You'll note that it starts in a sleepy American place named Green Hills, aping ye olde Sonic the Hedgepig's first level.

The plot of the movie, directed by Jeff Fowler, will follow two small-town cops as they journey to San Francisco with Sonic to defeat Dr. Robotnik.

Sonic is a character most likely remembered from the Sega Genesis games of the same name, which came out in 1991.
