Sonic The Hedgehog Is In Theaters This Friday--Get Your Tickets Now

It's almost time to see if the wait was worth it.


Sonic the Hedgehog speeds into theaters next week, and advance tickets are now on sale through popular ticket services including Fandango and Atom Tickets. The adaptation starring the classic video game hedgehog (voiced by Ben Schwartz) and Jim Carrey releases on February 14, so you can lock in your Valentine's Day plans early.

On Tuesday, February 11, T-Mobile will have Sonic tickets for $4 through Atom Tickets as part of its T-Mobile Tuesdays promotion. You have to be a T-Mobile customer to snag this deal.

Sonic's dash to theaters has hit a few speed bumps--most notably the uproar over his original design, which caused a delay and a completely redesigned (and much better looking) Sonic.

Sonic the Hedgehog is expected to post pretty strong opening weekend numbers, with estimates ranging from $40-47 million. Though numbers in that range would place it below last year's video game adaptation hit, Detective Pikachu, it would mean Sonic the Hedgehog would snag the second highest opening weekend for a video game adaptation.

The movie's delay may have fixed the Sonic you'll see in theaters, but the ghost of the original design still lingers in some of the official movie merch. Even the adorable Baby Sonic looks like a mix between new and old in plush form.
