SONIC THE HEDGEHOG Arrives On Digital HD Today; Check Out A New Bonus Features Sizzle Reel

After a stellar theatrical run, Sonic the Hedgehog has arrived on Digital HD, courtesy of Paramount Home Entertainment, several weeks ahead of schedule. Plus, they've released a new bonus content trailer!

Sonic the Hedgehog is now available on Digital HD platforms everywhere, becoming the latest film in a long line of films to make their digital debuts earlier than anticipated. However, in Sonic's case, its digital release was only pushed up by a few weeks rather than a few months.

If you're a fan waiting for the physical launch, the film is currently slated to arrive on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on May 19th.

The Jeff Fowler-directed video game movie adaptation, which starred Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation), James Marsden (X-Men) and Jim Carrey (Kidding), is currently the second highest-grossing film of the year, having earned over $306.8 million worldwide ($146M domestic; $160.7M foreign) on an estimated $95 million production budget, which should all but guarantee a sequel in the not-so-distant future. 

The home video combo pack and digital release will both contain a wide variety of awesome special features, including exclusive audio commentary from director Jeff Fowler and star Ben Schwartz, never-before-seen deleted scenes, a hilarious blooper reel, the "Speed Me Up" music video and tons of making of featurettes that will take you behind the making of this movie and possibly offer a sneak preview of what comes next.
