Sonic The Hedgehog 3 Gets Key Holiday 2024 Release Date

Published

on

Paramount has scheduled its Sonic threequel, Sonic the Hedgehog 3, for a Christmas 2024 release, making for a two-year gap between installments.

Paramount has officially revealed the release date for Sonic the Hedgehog 3. Based on Sega’s wildly popular action-adventure game series of the same name, the Sonic film franchise has so far produced two successful installments. Most recently, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 came out in April 2022, surpassing its predecessor’s box office earnings and winning praise for its pleasing visuals, blending of humor and action, and charming performances – especially the one turned in by newcomer Idris Elba, who voiced Knuckles. The movie also saw the returns of Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic, as well as Jim Carrey, Colleen O’Shaughnessey, and James Marsden. Sonic the Hedgehog 3 was announced by Sega and Paramount Pictures a month before the sequel premiered.

Currently, plot and character details for Sonic the Hedgehog 3 are slim. However, the movie is expected to pick up from the cliffhanger ending of the sequel and introduce a new villain in the form of the notorious Shadow. Since Carrey has retired from acting, he is not expected to return as Dr. Robotnik, although the filmmakers have decided not to recast his character. Schwartz previously teased that the film is “going to be bananas,” with subsequent details indicating that Sonic the Hedgehog 3 will include elements from the video games Sonic Adventure 2 and Shadow the Hedgehog. Details on Sonic the Hedgehog 3 have been scant since, although now there is a major update.

As confirmed by Sonic the Hedgehog‘s official social media, the threequel has been scheduled to premiere on December 20, 2024. No further details have been revealed, but it’s nevertheless reassuring to know that the movie has managed to secure an auspicious holiday release window. Take a look at the tweet below.

The new release date for Sonic the Hedgehog 3 continues the trend of leaving two years between movies in the franchise, so all installments will hopefully feel evenly spaced out. Right now, the date confirmation doesn’t give much of an idea about the movie’s story, although it indicates that a similar announcement could arrive soon for the Knuckles spinoff, which will see Elba reprising his red echidna role. The Knuckles show will set up Sonic 3, so it seems likely that the project will start to move forward now that the movie has a release date. There is plenty of room for both over the next two years.


Now the question of how Sonic the Hedgehog 3 will resolve some of its most pressing dilemmas remains. The immediate task the movie needs to take care of is addressing Carrey’s potential exit and explaining how the threequel will handle Dr. Robotnik’s absence. In the games, Dr. Robotnik had a crucial role in bringing his grandfather’s Project Shadow to life and provoking the conflict between Sonic and Shadow. However, with Robotnik presumably not returning for Sonic the Hedgehog 3, the movie might choose to tweak Shadow’s backstory, associating him with Guardian Units of Nations (G.U.N.) instead of Robotnik. Additionally, with a premiere date set, Sonic 3 could also reveal other game characters that might show up in the film. That said, with a release in sight, audiences can expectmore exciting updates from Sonic the Hedgehog 3 in the coming months.

M. Night Shyamalan unveils the eerie new poster for his upcoming 2023 horror film, Knock at the Cabin, which stars Jonathan Groff and Dave Bautista.


M. Night Shyamalan unveils the ominous new poster for his upcoming 2023 horror film, Knock at the Cabin. A director whose name has become synonymous with the horror genre, Shyamalan’s impressive back catalog includes classics such as The Sixth Sense, as well as more recent releases such as The Visit and Old. Shyamalan is known for the unique psychological twists that each new project of his brings, and now the director is gearing up for the release of his latest horror, Knock at the Cabin.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

In anticipation of this exciting new release, Shyamalan has shared the brand-new poster for Knock at the Cabin. Accompanied by the tagline “Save your family or save humanity” the poster sees four figures as they stand in front of a cabin, each of them holding a weapon. The poster, which was shared on Twitter by Shyamalan, reiterates Knock at the Cabin‘s upcoming release date of February 3, with many responding to the tweet by sharing their excitement for the film’s release.

Everything We Know About Knock At The Cabin

Knock at the cabin Dave Bautista and Rupert Grint

Knock at the Cabin is a home-invasion story that is inspired by the book The Cabin At The End Of The World by Paul Tremblay, which follows a couple and their young daughter who take a trip to stay in a cabin in the woods. During their stay, the trio is approached by four strangers, who demand that they must make a choice between saving their family or preventing the apocalypse. Knock at the Cabin will see Jonathan Groff and Ben Aldridge star alongside Kristen Cui, while Dave Bautista, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Rupert Grint, and Abby Quinn play their eerie attackers.

As for what else is known about Knock at the Cabin, very little has been revealed in the lead-up to the film’s release. In September, horror fans were treated to the very first trailer for Knock at the Cabin, which teased the basic premise of the film though, naturally, without giving much away. Those familiar with Shyamalan’s previous works will know that the film is likely to feature a variety of twists and turns that are certain to keep audiences guessing, alongside the impending sense of dread that Shyamalan expertly crafts within his films. Outside the film’s unique cast and source material, little is known about Knock at the Cabin, and its likely audiences will remain in the dark about this film right up to its release.

This new poster for Knock at the Cabin is sure to spark intrigue among those who perhaps hadn’t had Shyamalan’s newest project on their radar, as well as excite those who are eagerly anticipating its release. 2022 has been a standout year for the horror genre and so it’s certainly exciting to see that 2023 will hit the ground running with releases such as this. For now, there’s still a short while to go until Knock at the Cabin hits theaters and audiences learn what Shyamalan has up his sleeve with this intriguing new story.

Shuri & Namor Nearly Had A Romance In Black Panther 2, Says MCU Editor

Published

on

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever editor Michael P. Shawver reveals that Shuri and Namor were almost romantically linked in the Marvel Studios sequel.


Black Panther: Wakanda Forever editor Michael P. Shawver reveals that Shuri and Namor were almost romantically involved in the Marvel Studios sequel. Directed by Ryan Coogler, the much-anticipated follow-up to 2018’s Black Panther had its work cut out for it after Chadwick Boseman’s unexpected passing in 2020. Despite the difficulties and fresh setbacks brought upon by the coronavirus pandemic, the filmmakers delivered a poignant and powerful film that debuts Shuri as the new Black Panther and introduces the latest power-player in the MCU with Namor.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

As the two primary characters in the film, Shuri and Namor had an interesting dynamic in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, finding themselves at odds as they fight for their respective people. Namor was desperately trying to keep the underwater city of Talokan hidden from the rest of the world, while Shuri leads a grieving nation that is in a precarious place. When they first met, Shuri and Namor had some of the most insightful conversations in the movie, and as it turns out, there was a cut of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever that would have seen them romantically linked with each other, as revealed by Shawver in a new interview with Newsweek. Read his full quote below:

I think what’s really interesting is there were takes where there was some connection there… and at one point in an early cut we discussed like, ‘Hey, do we leave it there? Do we just put it out there? Let’s just add some complexity to the relationship.’ But, then, you’ve got to watch out for portraying, for example, Shuri flirting to get what she wants as opposed to being a diplomatic leader and becoming the leader that she needs to be, that she’ll get to at the end. So what we ultimately focused on was Namor’s line where he says, ‘Only the most damaged people can be truly great leaders,’ and that’s planting the seed of the shared trauma that she realizes at the end [of the film]. But that’s essentially who they are, they’re trying to lead and be a leader of their nations with all this pain, carrying around this heavy heart.

Removing Shuri & Namor’s Black Panther 2 Romance Was The Right Call

Namor Underwater in Black Panther- Wakanda Forever

The MCU has had great couples in the past, and they’ve told love stories within superhero films before. But ultimately, while there was clear chemistry between Shuri and Namor, it was for the best that Marvel Studios decided to do without their potential love line. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was already a packed film as it was. It had a lot of narratives to go through, and although it did a great job doing a balancing act on all of these arcs, adding a significant one could have made the film stuffed and unfocused.

Not pushing forward with Namor and Shuri’s planned romance also helped the film zero in on the only romantic love in the film: Nakia and T’Challa. Granted that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever doesn’t delve much into their dynamic, Nakia’s speech about why she opted not to attend T’Challa’s funeral highlights just how difficult it has been for her. It also helped properly set up the eventual introduction of their secret son, Prince Toussaint.

Could Shuri & Namor Get Romantic In Black Panther 3?

After their intense fight at the end of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, there’s an idea that there’s some kind of partnership forged between Wakanda and Talokan. Given this, expect that the two nations will continue to develop diplomatic relations, which means fans should see more of Namor and Shuri’s interaction. Whether Marvel Studios revisits their planned romance in the inevitable Black Panther 3 is unknown, but it would be interesting to see their relationship evolve down the road.

WB Had To Be Convinced To Bring Back Henry Cavill’s Superman

Published

on

Dwayne Johnson reveals that executives at Warner Bros. had to be convinced to allow Henry Cavill’s Superman to return to the DCU in Black Adam.


The return of Henry Cavill’s Superman in Black Adam was a welcome surprise for many fans, but star Dwayne Johnson reveals that Warner Bros. needed some convincing in order to make it happen. Cavill first played Superman in 2013’s Man of Steel, a movie that earned middling reviews from critics but was generally a big hit with audiences. After appearing in the divisive Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and the maligned Justice League (and its more positively-received Zack Snyder director’s cut), it looked like Cavill’s time as the DCU hero may have been at an end. However, rumors swirled before the release of Black Adam that Cavill would return as Superman and the actor finally made his triumphant return during the movie’s post-credits scene.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

In a new video posted to his Twitter account, Dwayne Johnson celebrates Black Adam‘s digital release and touches on how he and his producing partners orchestrated Cavill’s return as Superman. Johnson reveals that it took years to convince Warner Bros. leadership to allow Cavill to return and that it was never an option for him to build out the DCU without Superman. Check out Johnson’s full comment below:

“We have to bring back the most powerful, unstoppable force of all time in any universe. You guys know who I’m talking about, it’s Superman. That’s Henry Cavill. At the end of the day, the studio wasn’t bringing Henry back, inexplicably and inexcusably, but we weren’t going to take no for an answer. This has been years in the making, bringing Henry Cavill back with strategic conversations and we were not going to take no for an answer. For us, there’s no viable logical way to build out the DC Universe without the most powerful force and the greatest superhero of all time sitting on the sidelines, it’s impossible to do. You can Venn diagram this thing 90 times but it all comes back to, ‘Where’s Superman?’ You have to have Superman in the mix, so that’s why we fought hard to bring Superman back.”

How Dwayne Johnson Convinced WB To Bring Back Henry Cavill As Superman

Henry Cavill as Superman in Man of Steel.

Although there were likely many meetings with Warner Bros.’ executives behind closed doors, Johnson has been publicly teasing a confrontation for years between Black Adam and Superman. The actor’s continued references to the character and discussions about an epic battle between his hero and Cavill’s generated conversation online and spurred many fans to theorize as to who would win in a fight. Johnson’s comments, of course, came at a time when there was already a great deal of fan demand for Cavill to return as Superman in Man of Steel 2 or some other project that continued the Snyderverse. While the movies that Cavill appears in as Superman aren’t always received well, audiences undeniably love the actor’s unique take on the character.

Johnson is already one of the biggest movie stars on the planet, which means he will generally have more power over studio executives, but the actor’s engagement of Cavill’s Superman fan base is sure to only have added to the pressure Warner Bros.’ leadership was feeling. It’s likely that, even without Johnson, Warner Bros. was planning on how to use Superman in future projects but, given Cavill’s connection to the Zack Snyder’s Justice League debacle, the hero probably would have been played by a new actor had Johnson not gotten involved. If the studio had put another Superman project into the works and Clark Kent was played by someone other than Cavill, however, it’s likely that there would’ve been a sizable backlash online.

Johnson has gone on record saying that Cavill’s take on Superman is his favorite, meaning there was never any doubt that he would fight for the actor’s return in some capacity. It’s unclear exactly how Johnson negotiated Cavill’s return outside the public eye, but the conversation likely came down to money at some point, with Cavill’s take on Superman simply being the option that is most likely to bring in more money at the box office. It remains to be seen how Cavill’s Superman will feature in James Gunn’s plans for the DCU after Black Adam, but Johnson evidently played a big role in orchestrating the actor’s return.
