Here's our best look yet at Sonic the Hedgehog 2

Jim Carrey! Idris Elba! Sonic!

Today brings our best and longest look yet at the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog 2, which will arrive in UK cinemas on 1st April.

Last month, Sega eagerly announced a third entry in the live-action / CGI movie series was also on the way, as well as an additional TV spin-off for Elba's Knuckles. As in the character, not his hands.
