New image of 'The Smurfs' looks... ah fuck my life


11th November 2010

Last week we got our first glimpse of the new animated Tintin movie, currently in production with cinema legends Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson at the helm. At the complete opposite end of the interest spectrum lies The Smurfs, brought to you by the director of Big Momma's House. Who let this happen? Belgium, you've got a lot of explaining to do.

Ok, ok, clearly this is a movie aimed at kids, so it's not cool to go off on one tearing it apart but Jesus-shitting-Christ who thought this was a good idea? In an age where Pixar lovingly render our childhood memories until grown men weep, and DreamWorks have nailed that thing with the face, do we really need what is sure to be a shiny, neutered version of a series that was - let's be honest - not all that memorable in the first place? Yeah they face challenges because of their height: we get it.

*le sigh*

In case you do happen to be a 12-year-old with ADHD, here's some actual information about your new favourite film: Katy Perry plays Smurfette. There, that should be all you need to form your opinion. Now just...just look at the picture:

Nothing says "A Smurfing Good Time" like IP infringement warnings

Still, it'll probably do gangbusters in central Europe. Goodnight!
