Comedy adventure film ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ will be released in seven Sri Lankan cinemas tomorrow.

They are Liberty By Scope, Colombo City Centre, Majestic Cinema – Colombo, Majestic Cinema – Jaffna, Empire Cinema, PVR – Cinema and Savoy – Colombo.

Based on the video game franchise published by Sega, the film Sonic the Hedgehog is directed by Jeff Fowler (in his feature directorial debut) from a screenplay by Pat Casey and Josh Miller.  

It stars Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic the Hedgehog and Jim Carrey as Doctor Robotnik, as well as James Marsden, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally, and Neal McDonough. In the film, Sonic teams up with local town sheriff Tom Wachowski to find and reclaim his lost rings and escape Dr. Robotnik.

Sonic tries to navigate the complexities of life on Earth with his newfound best friend – a human named Tom Wachowski. They must soon join forces to prevent the evil Dr. Robotnik from capturing Sonic and using his powers for world domination.

Paramount’s family film ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ ignited over Presidents Day weekend in the US with $ 57 million in North America and $ 100 million globally, the best showing ever for a video game adaptation. This saw ‘Sonic’ unseat the previous weekend’s victor, Warner Bros.’ comic-book adaptation ‘Birds of Prey’, for the No. 1 spot on box office charts.
