First image from the Smurfs movie starring Neil Patrick Harris and Hank Azaria

I remember when the first image of the Hulk came out for Ang Lee’s THE HULK back in 2002/2003 that I felt the look of The Hulk was a little off-putting and that it would distract from the movie. I kind of have the same feeling here with the Smurfs. I’m not sure what it is, but they look like claymation figurines to me. That wouldn’t be bad if they were actually using claymation, but since they’re using CGI, I don’t know what to think about it. But obviously you can see that the city of New York is going to play prominently in the film from director Raja Gosnell.
The film stars Neil Patrick Harris, Sofia Vergara and Hank Azaria. It also features the voices of Katy Perry, Alan Cumming, George Lopez, John Oliver, B.J. Novak (The Office), Anton Yelchin, Paul Reubens, Jeff Foxworthy and Wolfgang Puck.
