James Marsden and Russell Brand in a new Hop trailer
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
A defiant bunny (Russell Brand) is next in line to take over the Easter Bunny duties but he’d rather go to Hollywood and try his hand at becoming a rock ‘n roll star (at least that’s what it looks like). In L.A. he meets up with a disbelieving human (James Marsden) who the bunny must befriend to fulfill his dreams. This sounded good until I realized that this is CGI combined with real life characters ala ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS (which by the way Tim Hill the director for that gem is also directing HOP). Overall, it’ll be fun for the kiddies and adults will probably be able to suffer through it as well.
Though not as exciting as the Super Bowl trailers for: CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON, SUPER 8 and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN ON STRANGER TIDES this one isn’t too bad. Check out the trailer below.
