Teaser Trailer: THE SMURFS 3D

Now that Avatar and those blue Pandorians are behind us for a little while at least, attention has now turned to some much cuter blue creatures that will invade our screens next year! We're talking about The Smurfs. Yes, those childhood Smurf men and the infamous singular Smurfette have been given the 3D live action/animated treatment, ala Alvin and the Chipmunks. Actually Sony call it the "Smurf'd' treatment. Boo-ya! In a move that will probably alienate the generation who grew up with the characters - the movie swaps the grassy fields of medieval Smurfville for modern day New York City! I... kid... you.... not. Neil Patrick Harris brings us the first look at a teaser trailer for Sony's quite astonishing adaptation... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CW17j09pHPw Harris stars as live action New Yorker, whilst the CGI Smurfs are; Hank Azaria is baddie Gargamel (who no longer wants to eat the Smurfs, but wants to capture them to yield gold from them or something). Jonathan Winters as Papa Smurf Katy Perry as Smurfette Alan Cumming as Gutsy Smurf George Lopez as Grouchy Smurf Gary Basaraba as Hefty Smurf Anton Yelchin as Clumsy Smurf Fred Armisen as Brainy Smurf John Oliver as Vanity Smurf Paul Reubens as Jokey Smurf Kenan Thompson as Greedy Smurf B. J. Novak as Baker Smurf Jeff Foxworthy as Handy Smurf Wolfgang Puck as Chef Smurf You may still be sentimental and hold great affection for the childhood characters who got you through your mornings once upon a time but our advice is simply to let go now, and try and remove all emotional attachment, otherwise you will be scorned next summer. Not only are we being dealt a Smurf movie but we're also in for the a 3D Yogi Bear this Christmas. Tellingly, The Smurfs movie is being helmed by director Raja Gosnell, the very same one who brought us the less than bearable Scooby Doo a decade ago. Clearly holding a penchant for bringing to life childhood heroes, we're not convinced this one is going to be any better.
