Now Playing: The Biggest Movies Left To Watch In 2018

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie featuring Ben Schwartz, Jim Carrey, and James Marsden, is coming to theatres sooner than previously expected, according to Deadline.

The film, which will blend live-action and CG, will now be released on November 8, 2019; that's a week before it was initially due out on November 15, 2019. The move ahead is noteworthy because it means that Sonic the Hedgehog will hit theatres just one week after Wonder Woman 1984. The first Wonder Woman was a smash hit, making more than $800 million and still doing huge numbers in its second weekend. Sonic the Hedgehog could be a big draw at the box office, too, as its cast has some big names, including Carrey.

Schwartz voices Sonic, while Carrey plays the evil Dr. Robotnik. Marsden plays a police officer who travels across the country with Sonic collecting rings just like in the game.

The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is directed by Jeff Fowler, who picked up an Oscar nomination for his 2005 animated movie Gopher Broke. Deadpool 1 director Tim Miller is producing the Sonic the Hedgehog film, which is shooting now.
