The Smurfs – First look at Hank Azaria as Gargamel

Posted by LiveFor on May 1, 2010

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).

Smurfing Hell! Katy Perry may be Smurfette

Posted by LiveFor on March 5, 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?

Owen Wilson is Marmaduke. I fear another Garfield

Posted by LiveFor on November 3, 2009

OwenWilsonHanselZoolanderOwen Wilson has decided to go from acting opposite a dog in Marley & Me to actually being a dog. He has joined the live-action/CG movie Marmaduke, and will voice the rascally Great Dane in Fox’s adaptation of the long-running comic strip. I put my head in my hands in despair. This does not bode well.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the story follows a family named the Winslows who move from Kansas to Orange County with their dog Marmaduke, a slobbery pooch who creates chaos wherever he goes.

In adapting the strip created in 1954 by Brad Anderson and Phil Leeming, the script by Tim Rasmussen and Vince Di Meglio sees Marmaduke navigate a volatile Mutts vs. Pedigrees turf war, woo the purebred of his dreams and overcome a fall from grace.

Judy Greer, Lee Pace and William H. Macy play the humans, while Fergie, Emma Stone, George Lopez, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Steve Coogan, Damon Wayans, Marlon Wayans supply the voices.

Whoa. Hold up. The Wayans brothers are in it so my misgivings were misplaced. This is bound to be comedy gold! —disengage sarcasm

Tom Dey is directing, and John Davis is producing the family comedy, which has a June 2010 release date.

The Spy Next Door – Just when you thought Jackie Chan could fall no further

Posted by LiveFor on October 17, 2009

spy-next-door-poster
Someone tell me this is a joke…quick search of the internet later…it is no joke.

Dreadful concept, dreadful poster. Did they go to the people who cannot photoshop to do this? What’s going on with Jackie’s leg? Why is he holding a laser pointer? Why are they all standing on a roof? Why is Jackie holding aloft a grappling hook when they are already on the roof? Has Jackie just crapped out a radioactive golden glowing turd after realising he was actually in this? Why has this one poster caused me to ask so many questions?

Who would have thought we would one day see the names Jackie Chan and Billy Ray Cyrus on the same poster.

Why Jackie Why?

For those who care Brian Levant (Jingle All the Way, Snow Dogs, Are We There Yet?) directed it and you can go and submit yourself to the pain on 15th January 2010.

I was going to post the trailer as well, but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it so here is some classic Chan. I swear we must have got the evil Mirror version of Jackie Chan at some point who makes naff movies.
