The Smurfs: First picture released

Hooray, more blue 3D fun

The Smurfs

The Smurfs first official picture has been released.

The picture shows animated smurfs Grouchy, Papa and Clumsy in front of the live-action backdrop of New York’s Time Square.

In the film the blue 3D trio along with Smurfette, Brainy and newby Gutsy are accidentally transported from their village to New York where they find themselves on the run from evil magician Gargamel.

But, Gargamel no longer wants to eat the smurfs. Director Raja Gosnell told USA Today, “We all wondered whether we would be making a family version of Sweeney Todd.” Instead he plans to use them to harness his own magical powers.

Katy Perry, Alan Cumming and Hank Azaria are among those lending their voices to the caper set for release in 2011.

Will the Smurfs beat Avatar to the blue people box-office crown? Leave a comment!

What tosh... kids can handle a bit of darkness, look at the tales of The Brothers Grimm which have lasted centuries and it's not half as nasty as selling Sony to kids with that oh so subtle product placement.

What bollocks, kids can handle a bit of darkness in their tales, the Brothers Grimm stories have lasted centuries. Funny to see they think it's wrong to have Gargamel wanting to eat Smurfs but they have no qualms about product placement in a kids movie, see Sony above. What will corrupt kids more?

      Even as a kid I never understood the appeal of The Smurfs. However, that doesn't mean I don't think they shouldn't make a movie; people love it and I hope they enjoy it. What I do want to say though, is why don't they recreate the world fans have come to love? Mushroom houses and what not. I'm sure they will show the smurf world for a while, but do we need this unneccesary "fish out of water" nonsense?? But I digress, I really just wanted to post how hilarious it was they actually asked "will it top avatar?" hahaha....Man I hope that was sarcasm :P
