The Smurfs trailer online
I don't see the excitement about a Smurfs film, all I can see is another similar film to all these CGI kiddies creature comedies with different computer work over the top. Can't they just take an Alvin and the Chipmunks film and rework the CG models to be blue with white hats?
The first teaser is out for the film and is trying to get everyone excited about the idea of a Smurfs film, it's certainly not working for me, CG Smurfs in a live action world, it is Alvin and the Chipmunks.
Seriously, is there anything here that has you drawn to the idea of a Smurfs film? I really don't get it. Even if you have an unnatural love for the characters then do you really think that a Smurfs film is going to do anything other than deliver the usual Hollywood CG cute and cuddly creature film?
Here's the teaser for The Smurfs to try and convince you otherwise. I certainly am not:
If you really want to you can see the high definition version at Yahoo Movies who also have a blurb for the film:
When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into ours – in fact, smack dab in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.
Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, Sofia Vergara, and Hank Azaria star on camera opposite an all-star voice cast. Anton Yelchin will play Clumsy Smurf; comedy legend Jonathan Winters, who voiced roles in the "Smurfs" television series, will voice Papa Smurf; Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Katy Perry will play Smurfette; Alan Cumming will play Gutsy Smurf; "SNL's" Fred Armisen will voice Brainy Smurf; and George Lopez will play Grouchy Smurf.
In the live-action roles, Azaria will play the Smurfs' nemesis, the evil wizard Gargamel. Harris and Mays star as an expectant couple whose lives are turned upside down when the Smurfs cross over from their magical village to New York City. Vergara plays Odile, Harris's boss, a cosmetics executive.
