Earlier today, we brought you the first official image from the live action, CGI adaptation of The Smurfs and now a teaser trailer has just been released! The film stars Neil Patrick Harris who also introduces the footage that officially premiered on Yahoo Movies. In typical Smurfs fashion it’s short, sweet, and really blue. Take a look…
In The Smurfs, the forest creatures stumble upon a magic portal that transports them to modern day New York City (Central Park). They run into a married couple played by Harris and “Glee’s” Jayma Mays and beg them for help to escape the evil Gargamel (Hank Azaria) who’s trying to capture them so they can be used in his magic.
The trailer is under a minute long and gives us absolutely nothing in terms of the story or its characters. It’s just a way for the studio to introduce the new look of the creatures before hitting us with everything else the movie has to offer.
The Smurfs is directed by Raja Gosnell and is scheduled to hit theaters on August 3, 2011.
