Sony Pictures Animation has put out a new trailer for "The Smurfs 2," which stars Neil Patrick Harris, Christina Ricci, and Sofia Vergara. In the sequel to 2011's "The Smurfs," Gargamel creates the miniature Smurf wannabes, "The Naughties" to infiltrate the land of the blue creatures and turn Smurfette -- Katy Perry reprises her role -- against her own kind.
The Smurfs enlist the help of their human friends to save Smurfette from her own naughtiness, because only she holds the key to converting the Naughties into full-fledged Smurfs.
"The Smurfs 2" hits theaters July 31, 2013. »
With the frequency with which the word "smurf" is used, these movies practically write themselves!
What do you do when you make a movie that is universally disliked but makes half a billion dollars at the box office? In the case of The Smurfs, you make a sequel!
For Smurfs 2, the wizard evil Gargamel (again played by Hank Azaria) has created two Smurf-like creatures he calls "the Naughties" — Vexy (voiced by newcomers Christina Ricci) and Hackus (J.B. Smoove) — and uses them to try to manipulate the good-natured Smurfette (still voiced by Katy Perry). Why not? After all, Gargamel created Smurfette in the first place, so now he'll get all of his creations in one place!

For some bizarre reason that we can’t bear to think about, movie studios are obsessed with bringing back old cartoon franchises and turning them into CG animations, perhaps because they hate the world and they hate you, but probably because using “stuff that exists already” means that everybody gets to go home a little earlier. That’s presumably how the original The Smurfs movie came to be, a rollicking failure of a comedy that was just about the worst movie to emerge in theatres last year. And Adam Sandler made four movies in 2011, which tells you a whole lot about the level of quality we’re dealing with here.
Yes, as cinema continues its on-going objective to “get worse,” The Smurfs 2 has been green-lit… and here’s the trailer to prove it! And according to details revealed by said trailer, The Smurfs 2 throws a whole new angle in there, »

The Smurfs have returned, and this time they're getting naughty.
The first trailer for "The Smurfs 2" has hit the web, and shows the introduction of new, bad creatures called the Naughties. Hank Azaria's Gargamel is back and trying to defeat the Smurfs, so he's decided to create his own small, Smurf-like creations to take them down. The Naughties, voiced by Christina Ricci and Jb Smoove, seem like they're able to do the unthinkable: Make Smurfette go bad.
Watch the trailer after the jump!
Do we need another "Smurfs" movie? Probably not, but at least this sequel ensures one thing: More Neil Patrick Harris in our lives. He only gets a brief appearance at the end of the trailer but it's enough for us. That man can make anything -- even the first "Smurfs" movie -- more enjoyable.
Based on this first trailer, "The Smurfs 2" actually doesn't look that bad. »

Yesterday saw the release of the full-length trailer for The Smurfs 2. Now, a new photo has been released by Sony Pictures for this follow-up to the 2011 smash-hit The Smurfs. This time out, the evil wizard Gargamel (Hank Azaria) is kidnapping Smurfette (Katy Perry) and taking her on a trip to Paris. Whatever for, you might ask, since a Gargamel-Smurfette romance is unquestionably off the table? The evil wizard has created his own diabolical creatures called The Naughties (Christina Ricci; J.B. Smoove), and Smurfette holds the key to turning them into real Smurfs. We have a new photo from the movie, which finds Smurfette interacting with her new found foreign friends. Life's about to get a little crazy for our sole female Smurf!
Unless you’re still in grade school, odds are you weren’t dying for another installment of The Smurfs. But the first film was a runaway hit worldwide, grossing an impressive $563 million worldwide, so now we have The Smurfs 2 to contend with next summer. Directed once again by Raja Gosnell, the CG sequel sees Gargamel (Hank Azaria) hatching a [...] »

The Smurfs are smurf, and they're ready to smurf the smurf. Also back, and wearing a sharp white suit, is Neil Patrick Harris (fresh off getting ensmurfed to Smurfin on How I Met Your Smurfer). This time, evil Gargamel (played by Hank Azaria in makeup that kind of makes him look like F. Murray Abraham) has created naughty Smurf-like creatures named Naughties. Besides looking like they just stumbled out of Lollapalooza '96, their plan is to turn Smurfette (Katy Perry) naughty. Shenanigans will ensue on July 31, 2013, and in 3-D (or Smurf-d or 3-Smurf?). »
Jay Leno's contract is up in 2014, and reports say that NBC is considering moving Jimmy Fallon to the earlier slot, and has put out feelers for a new "Fallon." While I wish Jimmy all the success in the world, I love his goofy show and would hate to see the changes required for the earlier audience.

While some of us are sitting around and awaiting an official announcement as to whom Benedict Cumberbatch will be playing in Star Trek Into Darkness, the rest of us are wondering what The Naughties will look like in The Smurfs 2. Well, we now have an answer thanks to the first trailer from the upcoming sequel.
The Smurfs 2 sees Gargamel (Hank Azaria) create his own race of miniature people in an attempt to kidnap The Smurfs. The Naughties try and convince Smurfette to be naughty, but will they succeed in this diabolical plan? I hope not! The humour, if one can call it that, is once again aiming at the lowest of the low, and the makers have decided to set the film in the real-world once again, this time taking the blue guys to Paris.

The Smurfs was one of the worst movies of 2011, but you wouldn't know if by looking at its box office numbers. Despite the fact that it opened in second place its opening weekend - behind Jon Favreau's Cowboys & Aliens, it proved to not only have legs in the United States (ending up with a total of $142 million on a $110 million budget) but was an epic success abroad, making over $400 million. The sequel was immediately greenlit (no big surprise there) and now, as we march closer and closer to 2013, we have the film's first trailer. The preview premiered over on the movie's official website, www.SmurfHappens.com, but you can also watch it below. Directed by Raja Gosnell, the same director as the first movie, and featuring returning talents like Neil Patrick Harris, Hank Azaria, Anton Yelchin, Katy Perry, George Lopez, Jayma Mays, Jonathan Winters and more, the sequel once »
I need to come to the realization that I will be seeing this in theatres. You see, I have a six year old, and sometimes being a dad is tough job.

Just last month, the teaser trailer for The Smurfs 2 surfaced online after being in theaters for months. Now the full length trailer is has arrived. It shows Hank Azaria as Gargamel in Paris (where he's become a hit entertainer) bringing about The Naughties (voiced by Christina Ricci and Jb Smoove) to cause some trouble for The Smurfs. More specifically the mischievous duo tries to turn Smurfette (Katy Perry) into being naughty, and never go back to her sweet, nice lifestyle.

The first trailer has been made available for The Smurfs 2. This time around, it looks as if Gargamel (Hank Azaria) is making his own version of Smurfs called "Naughties" in the hopes of bottling the powerful "Smurf-essence." Poor Smurfette (voiced by Katy Perry) gets caught up in the plan and runs the risk of turning into one of the Naughties herself, unless the other Smurfs can rescue her. The Smurfs director Raja Gosnell returns to direct the sequel, starring Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays, and featuring the voices of Sofia Vergara, Jonathan Winters, Alan Cumming, Fred Armisen, George Lopez, Anton Yelchin and John Oliver. The Smurfs 2 will debut in theaters on July 31, 2013. Hit the jump to check out the first trailer.

It's coming. After pulling in a whopping $563 million worldwide, The Smurfs movie scored a sequel that's due to hit theaters next summer. Raja Gosnell, who helmed the first movie, is back in the director's chair for The Smurfs 2, and much of the cast has returned to reprise their roles including Anton Yelchin, Hank Azaria, Katy Perry, Jayma Mays, and Neil Patrick Harris. The sequel will build off a bizarre bit of backstory that Smurfette revealed in their first feature. During some girl talk with Jayma Mays' character, Smurfette explains that she wasn't originally Smurf, but actually a creation of Gargamel's meant to snare the all-male Smurfs. However, Papa Smurf and the other Smurfs accepted her, and mysteriously made her a full-fledged Smurf, filled with the kind of magic Gargamel craves. So in Smurfs 2, Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette to discover how her transformation happened, as he hopes to do the »
