This doesn’t tell us much more than we knew in November.

My thoughts on the subject remain unchanged. The old live-action Mario Bros movie, while quite the disaster, at least tried to do something fresh and daring and original. I can’t really imagine Illumination creating anything that won’t be completely forgettable. Oh, it will be entertaining and shiny and marketable, and make a handsome profit and provide a convenient distraction for the kiddies to watch over and over again on a rainy weekend afternoon – but forgettable nonetheless.

That said, there are rumors circulating about a live-action Sonic movie, and that surely cannot manage to be more than an utter disaster.

YOU FOOL! You’ve broken The Star Wars Prequel law of moviedom: as soon as you make a definitive statement regarding the future quality of a movie, it is guaranteed to be far worse than your statement indicated. You’ve doomed us all!!!
