The Smurfs 2 reveals two new posters
Two new posters are out for THE SMURFS 2. Rather than put than fill the space with a bunch of little blue people, Sony Pictures has decided to simply do close up of two characters per poster. The first is Smurfette and Hackus, while the other features Vexy and Grouchy. I’ll admit, I never saw the first THE SMURFS (click the link to read the review) but I was surprised it did well enough to warrant a second. Apparently, it was pretty good. I’m curious to know how many kids said they enjoyed it, because I don’t know any that actually saw it. The human cast and voice talent are top notch. Directed by Raja Gosnell, THE SMURFS 2 stars: Neil Patrick Harris, Sofia Vergara, Hank Azaria and Jayma Mays and features the voice talents of: Christina Ricci, Katy Perry, Brendan Gleeson, Alan Cumming and J.B. Smoove. THE SMURFS 2 hits theaters on July 31st, 2013.
THE SMURFS 2 official synopsis: In this sequel to the hybrid live action/animated family blockbuster comedy The Smurfs, the evil wizard Gargamel creates a couple of mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties that he hopes will let him harness the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence. But when he discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants, and only a secret spell that Smurfette knows can turn the Naughties into real Smurfs, Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette and brings her to Paris, where he has been winning the adoration of millions as the world¹s greatest sorcerer. It’s up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity to return to our world, reunite with their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow, and rescue her! Will Smurfette, who has always felt different from the other Smurfs, find a new connection with the Naughties Vexy and Hackus or will the Smurfs convince her that their love for her is True Blue?
