Sonic Adventure: Chaos Complex is a direct-to-video film based on the Sonic Adventure games that was originally released in Japan in 2000. Charon Communications acquired distribution rights and commissioned The Corning/Emerson Group to produce an english dub. It is notable in being one of the first Sonic related projects to feature Sally Acorn after Sonic SatAM.
The film was originally produced without authorization from SEGA. The film was intended to be a spiritual sequel to Sonic Adventure, but it quickly fell into obscurity due to a lack of promotion. An English dub was produced and aired on cable networks in the US and the UK before earning a theatrical release in 2003.
Cor-Son originally hired Miramax Films to distribute it, but pulled out due to them intending to edit it to turn a higher profit. They later went with Sony, who outsourced it to their specialty division Destination Films. Samuel Goldwyn Films co-distributed the film in its American theatrical run.

The film received mixed reviews at the time of its release. It did fairly well at the box-office, but the companies that produced it didn't make enough to break even. The Corning/Emerson Group shut down their film division after viewing the film as a money-sink.
Since then, the film has garnered a cult following amongst Sonic fans, attributing it to the fact that it serves as a close successor to the Sonic Adventure games.
