Unless you’re still in grade school, odds are you weren’t dying for another installment of The Smurfs. But the first film was a runaway hit worldwide, grossing an impressive $563 million worldwide, so now we have The Smurfs 2 to contend with next summer.
Directed once again by Raja Gosnell, the CG sequel sees Gargamel (Hank Azaria) hatching a new plan to get that Smurf juice he so desperately needs. It involves the invention of the Naughties, a pair of small creatures (voiced by Christina Ricci and JB Smoove) that appear to be like the Smurfs in every way besides having gray skin and more ‘tude.

If that doesn’t sound like a horror film, that’s because you haven’t yet watched the trailer. Do so after the break, if you dare. Read More »
Neil Patrick Harris has been racking up a hell of a lot of cred. He’s done well on How I Met Your Mother and has parlayed the geek crowd’s young memories of his Doogie Howser, M.D. role into a mature fanbase thanks to appearances in Starship Troopers, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, the Harold and Kumar movies and even a star turn hosting the Emmys.
And now he’s going to spend that cred on Smurfs: The Movie? Read More »
There are a lot of things to be excited about today. The Michael Jackson media circus is winding down. A party at Comic Con will feature hilarious/awesome metal bands Gwar and 3 Inches of Blood. I’m eating some delicious homemade salsa. Oh, and the Smurfs movie has a director. Yeah, the last item doesn’t really fit.

I guess there’s more after the jump, if you care. Read More »
