Random: Sonic 2 Movie Poster Gives Fans The Major ‘Sonic 2sday’ Feels

Marketing for the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog 2 movie has been exceptionally strong, with Paramount leaning heavily on iconic imagery and nostalgia.

The latest poster goes above and beyond, tapping into those nostalgic feels like nothing else we’ve seen up till now, especially for anyone who was around for the launch of the original Genesis sequel which famously launched on ‘Sonic 2sday’ — Tuesday 24th November 1992.

It’s a direct callback to the US and PAL box arts for the original Sonic the Hedgehog 2 game for Sega Genesis/Mega Drive. It features Sonic and Tails prominently at the front, with a gigantic image of Dr. Robotnik grasping at a number 2, with an extra finger courtesy of Jim Carrey, of course. Eagle-eyed viewers can also spot Knuckles reflected in the big red 2, too.

We love it — there’s nothing more to say! You can check out the poster in question below, alongside the US box art for Sonic the Hedgehog 2:

That’s not the last of the Sonic 2 news for today; a brand new trailer for the movie just dropped and looks absolutely fantastic. For fun, we also ran a ‘Box Art Brawl’ poll a while back to determine the best box art for Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for Genesis/Mega Drive — feel free to check it out and cast your belated vote!
