Spanish Town Becomes Smurf Village

This is a photo of Juzcar, a town in Spain that has been chosen for the world premiere of “The Smurfs 3D.” Why? Because the town opted to paint all of its buildings blue and erect oodles of Smurfy statues in public squares. Oh, and the local kids have taken to wearing smurf hats? Here’s guessing this will now become a tourist destination. [USA Today]

11 Reasons Why We’re Smurfing Out Over The New Smurfs Movie

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la … “The Smurfs” film is coming soon to a theater near you. According to the New York Post, Hank Azaria, who will play Gargamel, has been spotted rocking a “chrome dome” in public, which can only mean one thing. We’re getting closer to the slated 2011 release of the film. If you were a child in the ’80s and your family owned a television, then you were probably glued to the screen every Saturday morning watching your favorite little, blue people foil Gargamel’s evil schemes, live peacefully as communists, and spread their Smurfiness around the village. After the jump, why we’re totally Smurfing out over the film. [NY Post] Keep reading »

The Freaky Parallels Between The New “Smurfs” And “Muppets” Movies

I’m sensing a trend here. First, a major studio announces that they’ll be making an update of a mega-popular kids franchise: Columbia/Sony are making “The Smurfs: The Movie” and Disney will soon start filming a new “Muppet Movie.” Both flicks will be a mixture of animation/puppets with live-action actors. Last week, it was announced last that Neil Patrick Harris had landed the lead role in “The Smurfs.” So guess who was announced today as the lead in the “Muppets”? None other than Neil’s “How I Met Your Mother” co-star, Jason Segel. What’s next—”Care Bears” starring Josh Radnor? Keep reading »

Latest ’80s Comeback: The Smurfs In 3D!

La, la, la, la, la, la. For some reason, whenever I let my mind go blank, the word “smurf” pops into it. So I’m pretty excited that Sony Pictures is working on a movie version of the little blue guys that’ll be out circa December 2010. “The Smurfs” will be partly in 3-D animation and partly with live actors. This is the first image to be released while the film is in pre-production. Rumor has it that John Lithgow will play Gargamel and that Raja Gosnell (“Scooby Doo”) will direct. Not much is out about the movie’s plot, but most seem to think it focuses on Clumsy Smurf. All I gotta say is—I hope this time around, there are more lady smurfs that just Smurfette and Sassette.
