The last few years have seen the resurgence of many childhood favorites from the 80's. Alvin & The Chipmunks,GI Joe and even Transformers. With the announcements of Mighty Mouse, He-Man and even Max Steel it seems Hollywood is primed and ready to pillage more childhood staples for box office revenue. One of newest projects gaining momentum is the Smurfs due in part of its all-star cast and the curiosity surrounding presentation. Well thanks to the crew at coming soon we now have a picture of Hank Azaria as Gargamel. I have to admit it looks really close to the cartoon but the real question is how will the Smurfs look and will it be successful?
The Smurfs opens August 3, 2011 in my”favorite” film style the all mighty 3-D.
The cast includes Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, Sofia Vergara, Anton Yelchin, Jonathan Winters, Katy Perry, Alan Cumming, Fred Armisen, George Lopez, Paul Reubens, John Oliver, Kenan Thompson, B.J. Novak, Jeff Foxworthy, Wolfgang Puck and Gary Basaraba.
