Oh, let’s face it. As ridiculous as this thing looks, you know it’s going to make a mint at the box office. After all, “Alvin and the Chipmunks” did, and I see no reason why the bloody “Smurfs” wouldn’t, either. It’s basically the same movie — CG animals interacting with live humans. Plus, they’re small, blue, and cute, and they’ll say “Smurf” a lot. It’s a smurfing no brainer, man! Anyhoo, here’s the teaser trailer. You can smurf me later.
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.
Starring Jayma Mays, Neil Patrick Harris, Katy Perry, Sofía Vergara, Anton Yelchin, Hank Azaria, Alan Cumming, B.J. Novak, Paul Reubens , George Lopez, Jonathan Winters, Fred Armisen, Kenan Thompson, John Oliver, Adam Wylie, Jeff Foxworthy, and directed by Raja Gosnell.
