The Smurfs Movie Releases Trailer [Video]

Posted on: June 2nd, 2011 at 6:28 am by

Around this time last year, the animated Smurfs army invaded the city to film their live-action eponymous movie. As a result, both the East Village and Lower East Side were hard hit by the months-long production, with some Smurfs even going AWOL from the set. Indeed, every now and then, EV Grieve still catches a glimpse of those blue buggers causing ruckus around the neighborhood. Now it’s time for their silver screen debut…in 3D.

The storyline focuses on a gang of Smurfs magically transported from medieval times to present-day New York City. With Gargamel in pursuit, they eventually seek refuge with principle stars Doogie Howser Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays.

Smurfs 3D hits theaters on June 25. It looks terrible, and YouTube users are up in arms. Like drorangeg:

Originally the magic in this cartoon was the medieval atmosphere and the classic 2D drawings…What an idiot idea to create a soulless 3D computer animated crap from this legendary series and to put the nasty story into the modern,real world??!!?!Agree-constantly destroying our childhood memories…

Stupid blinking large eyed 3D droids among yellow taxis for the imbecile fatass yankee cubs…congrats idiots!Unable to find out something new,intellectual zombies…What a shame!!
