Hank Azaria's Gargamel seen searching for Smurfs in New York

04.30.2010

The little blue bipeds known as THE SMURFS are coming to life, quite literally -- the movie involves the tiny shirtless dudes (and one babe) somehow crossing from their magical world into our own reality, landing in Central Park.

Which explains why wizard Gargamel (Hank Azaria) was recently spotted running around Manhattan. Coming Soon has some clear snaps of Azaria in character as the crusty sworn enemy of the Smurfs, which you can check out HERE.

The live-action/CG blend comes from director Raja Gosnell, who has made the mix of humans and computer-fabricated critters his forte on BEVERLY HILLS CHIHUAUA and two SCOOBY-DOO movies. His 3D SMURFS arrives August 3rd, 2011.

The movie features the voice or physical form of Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, Anton Yelchin, Jonathan Winters, Katy Perry, Alan Cumming, Fred Armisen, George Lopez, Paul Reubens, John Oliver, Kenan Thompson, B.J. Novak, Jeff Foxworthy, Wolfgang Puck, Gary Basaraba and Sofia VergaraOHMYGOD.

Extra Tidbit: Smurfette wasn't actually the only female Smurf -- Gargamel also created a redhead named Sassette. Something tells me she won't make the movie's roster.

holy mother of god...

please let this insanity cease, destroy the set and slay the evil execs who thought that this was a good idea...amen


really? come on ppl, you think that a movie of a psycho dude dresses and a monk chasing blue creatures(to eat them
) who live in mushroom houses through the streets of New York sounds like a fun time? What of the other 3 million people who live there? wouldn't some kid catch one and keep it in a jar? what are the odds of someone else seeing them, they are after all 101 in

How about the cdc not getting involved, or some university disecting a specimen of this new previously undiscovered species? What part do they play in the whole scheme of evolution, Could they be some sort of missing link? Hence the theme song used to be 'far,very far from here, some 2000 miles away', 2k miles seems to be out of reality, not that this project seemed like a winner from the onset any way.

Is he wearing a snuggie?

Also, a lady with huge cleavage is no reason to give this film a thumbs up. She's doing voice work!

Gargamel

Gargamel looks great, but I think taking this into "the real world" is a bad idea and I'm no longer interested. Why do they always have to take fictional characters to a city? Is that the studios last refuge for "good ideas"?
