As Sonic Movie Opens in Chinese Theaters, Sonic Says “Follow COVID-19 Guidelines” in New Movie Posters

The Sonic movie finally opened in Chinese theaters today, more than five months after its originally scheduled date of February 28. The opening has been accompanied with a series of posters advertising COVID-19 guidelines, a stark reminder of how much the world has changed this year. Among the guidelines, Sonic asks people to wear a mask, not eat food, take their temperature, and social distance from others, including your own clones.

These images were posted to Twitter by Daniel Ahmad, who covers the Asian video game industry.

While the Sonic movie broke records for a video game movie in the west, delays in eastern markets caused by the pandemic have kept the movie from reaching the same worldwide numbers as Detective Pikachu. Be sure to check back to Sonic Stadium for news on the movie’s box office performance over the next few weeks!
