The promised teaser trailer for Sony Animation’s The Smurfs movie in 3D is here and shows little more than the teaser image that popped up online yesterday.
Neil Patrick Harris introduces the teaser which shows a trio of Smurfs first looking around Times Square in bewilderment, then hanging off the sign on a taxi cab promoting a Smurfs website. Also starring in the film is Hank Azaria as Smurfs’ nemesis Gargamel.
Sony appears to be aiming for Fox’s The Chipmunks crowd with the hip music infused with the classic Smurfs ‘la la’ jingle. I find it and the “Smurf’d” tagline a tad annoying, but kids might eat it up.
The Smurfs arrive in theaters on August 3, 2011.
