The fastest superhero in video game history is coming to theaters with his first full-length feature film. Sonic the Hedgehog is from space — which is a twist on Sonic's origin story — and finds a human friend on Earth, Tom Wachowski. Sonic and Tom team up to defeat Sonic's long-time enemy, Dr. Robotnik, with all the break-neck speed you remember from the video games. Starring James Marsden and Jim Carrey, Sonic the Hedgehog comes to theaters November 2019.
In March, a New Jersey high school caught the internet's attention when they performed a live, stage version of the 1979 sci-fi classic Alien — even receiving praise from director Ridley Scott and the film's star Sigourney Weaver. Weaver was so impressed she even headed to North Bergen High to catch an encore performance. A recording of that 90-minute show has been released, including the introduction given by the original Ripley.
