I’m not going to throw too many disparaging comments at this film before seeing it, but I can’t help but get a Garfield-like sinking in my stomach when I see the images and trailers for the new Smurfs movie.

The cartoons series of The Smurfs had its charm but CG those blue things into the real world and you’d better have a decent script with a sackful of wit to keep me interested. Pulling in Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays and a Gargamelled Hank Azaria is a good start, but this new poster fills me with an apoplectic apathy which I’m sure isn’t the point.

Any guesses for how this poster started out?

IMPA had the poster.
