Smurfs 2 Hits Trailer!

[adrotate banner=”1″]Smurfs 2 has hit trailer! Yes, Smurfs are back and running around New York again due to things not explained in the trailer. Gargamel makes evil grey Smurfs called The Naughtes played by Christina Ricci and JB Smoove to do his evil bidding. The plan is to convert Smurfette back to the dark side by making her naughty again. (If you remember from Smurf lore, Smurfette was originally created by Gargamel to cause trouble and then became a Smurf later thanks to Papa Smurf) It looks like the producers are banking on the popularity of Katy Perry to give them the big bucks. As I mentioned for the last film, the scenes in the Smurf village were awesome, so hopefully there is more Smurf village time. Neil Patrick Harris and Sofia Vergara also return.

Smurfs 2 Evil Smurfette

Kiss me, ki-ki-kiss me
Infect me with your love and
Fill me with your poison!

And if you are wondering if Azrael is in the film, yes he is, therefore Smurfs 2 will be not terrible!

Grey Evil Smurfs!

Evil Smurfs Naughties
[adrotate banner=”1″]These evil Smurfs called the Naughties are your villains for Smurfs 2: Smurf Smurfer. They are totally grey and not white like everyone ever thought when they first saw them. So don’t think that. Just know that the stranded Gargamel made them out of clay to help get revenge on the Smurfs, and thus they are evil because he made them that way (this is also the real origin of Smurfette!) The female is Vexy (Christina Ricci) and the male is Hackus (JB Smoove)

“Vexy is smart, and mischievous and has lots of attitude. Attitude to spare,” Gosnell says. “And she really does want to please her father.” That would be Gargamel, who would surely cringe at the title.

“Hackus, he’s just very funny and very physical,” Gosnell adds. “He’s the Tasmanian Devil meets a lovable puppy dog.”

The original Smurfs was shockingly not terrible when they weren’t singing, but just like the first one, the film will largely take place in our universe instead of the land of the Smurfs, which was where the first film was the strongest (and Hank Azaria and the cat Azrael stole the show!) Will Smurfs 2 surprise like the original? Can they build on the mythology? If this one is successful, can we finally have an all Smurfland Smurfs movie? The answers to all those questions are mysteries that won’t be solved for a while, so don’t hold your breath until you turn blue. Unless you are one of the Naughties!
