Spoilers ahead for Sonic the Hedgehog.
Video game adaptations have had a colorful history in movie theaters. Countless video game movies have been flops throughout the years, including classics like Super Mario Bros. to more modern attempts like Assassin’s Creed and Warcraft. But there have been a few exceptions to this rule, including recent animated/live-action fusions Detective Pikachu and Sonic the Hedgehog. The latter blockbuster had a rocky road to theaters, but became a critical and box office success after its release. Although fans are wondering: why wasn’t Super Sonic and the Chaos Emeralds included?
