The Sonic the Hedgehog movie is set to finally release on February 14th, and now that we are so close to its release date, the marketing machine has fully kicked into the gear with new clips, interviews, trailers, and the like all expected between now and then. That includes, but is not limited to, a new Dolby Cinema poster featuring the Blue Blur and his cop friend from the film, Tom.
The new poster, which you can check out below, is fairly straightforward. Sonic (voiced by Ben Schwartz) is sitting on top of a police cruiser with Tom (portrayed by James Marsden) inside. It would appear that Sonic just ran by the cruiser, and is already sitting on top of it, as Tom clocks his speed. In case you're curious: it seems to imply Sonic runs at about 760 miles per hour.
There is one slightly confusing aspect about this poster, however. What in the world is Sonic looking at? His right hand is sitting in such a way that it's perhaps meant to be a sort of, "check out how fast I was," motion, but he's not actually looking at his wrist as if he were mimicking looking at a watch. Instead, he's just staring off into the distance.
