Smurfin’ Hell! Still not excited about a Smurf’s film, but I think the kids will love it. They seem to have the look right for it so far.
In the 3D August 3, 2011 release, the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village and they tumble from their magical world into ours – in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.
The cast includes Neil Patrick Harris (Johan), Jayma Mays, Sofia Vergara (Odile-Johan’s wife), Anton Yelchin (Clumsy Smurf), Jonathan Winters (Papa Smurf), Katy Perry (Smurfette), Alan Cumming (Gutsy Smurf), Fred Armisen (Brainy Smurf), George Lopez (Grouchy Smurf), and Paul Reubens (Jokey Smurf).

“World War Squid.” This sounds right up my street. Comic book artist Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night, Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse, Fell) is working on an “Illustrated Film” the goal of which, is to meld the cinematic storytelling style of comics with good audio/voice acting & some animation/CGI in places. That in itself sounds interesting, but wait until you get to what Black Sky is all about. Here is what he had to say on his website:
All I can say is sort of Band Of Brothers…but with SQUID. ( Well, Cthulhu-ish ideas and my love of all things tentactular ) Yes, it’s a war comic. Want to get all emotional and down and dirty with it. Not exactly comedy in the vein of Wormwood… It’s post apocalyptic. I deals with a small group of soldiers, as the human race is reduced to relatively low tech solutions to claw back their planet, the new religion that drives them on to this goal in the face of hopelessness…and all the stuff that comes from such things. Many horrific and hopefully, some touching “tales from the front” in many ways. And of course, they’ll end up being players in a major event that may define the now generations long conflict. Lots of action but with an actual point to it I hope, rather than an excuse to simply draw “cool” things.
Humans are such fragile things.
Squid, not so much.
No news on when we will see it, but anyone else looking forward to it?

Check out the trailer for this Czech film. Looks great and really captures that feeling of childhood.
Kuky Returns is the story of a boy six Ondra, who suffers from asthma, and so on “health reasons” must be off his favorite toy – a pink bear kuky. When mom Kukyho throw in the trash, it will work Ondrová fantasy in which experienced Kukyho adventure in an unknown natural world. It’s really just a dream a little boy or kuky actually went to the biggest adventure of his plush life
Kuky Returns is an adventure, a poetic family story in which the main role, however, take the heroes of children’s fantasy worldwhere the only heroes are the puppets. “I thought then change the scale and place the story directly into the microcosm, his protagonists make small enough that the roots of the tree decorations, light in the atmosphere made raspberry leaves, fuzz was all the props and extras natural insects,” says Jan Sverak, who is also the author scenarios and as with most of his recent films also the producer.
Check out the official site.

This was the film that was originally called Oobermind and was going to have Robert Downey Jr voice the main character. That got changed and Will Ferrell got the job. Now we have a better look at the main character (the only other outing has been on a poster from August last year).
“When super villain MegaMind (Will Ferrell) defeats his archrival Metro Man (Brad Pitt), the world should be his oyster. But instead, MegaMind falls into total despair. It turns out that life without a rival is life without a purpose for him. So he creates a new superhero rival, Titan (Jonah Hill). Unfortunately for him and the world, the new hero wants to be a super villain too. The new villain begins his rampage, and MegaMind sets out to stop him, beginning a path to redemption in the process.”
It is due out on the 5th November 2010.

She kissed a girl and she liked it, but is now marrying, or is married to Russell Brand. Now pop star, Katy Perry, is heading to the big screen well her voice is as she is down to play Smurfette in The Smurfs. That instantly reminds me of Donnie Darko (see the clip below if you don’t know about the Darko thing).
Recent news on the film was that Neil Patrick Harris was playing a live action role in the film. Now, along with Perry, Alan Cummings (Tin Man, X-Men 2) will voice Gutsy Smurf, George Lopez as Grouchy Smurf and Jonathan Winters as Papa Smurf.
Winters voiced Papa and a number of other Smurfs in the original cartoon. Actually it was Don Messick who voiced Papa Smurf originally. Thanks to Birdchick for the info.
I still can’t get excited about this film although I know my kids will probably love it and, at the end of the day, they are exactly who the film is aimed at.
Do you think Perry will work as Smurfette?
