The secret lives of garden statues in the new trailer for Gnomeo & Juliet

09.21.2010

I'm not sure how a Shakespeare classic enacted by animated lawn figures came about, but GNOMEO & JULIET certainly attracted an impressive cast. James McAvoy, Emily Blunt, Jason Statham, Michael Caine, Patrick Stewart and Ozzy Osbourne (!!) all lend their voices to romantic tragedy done the Disney way.

The synopsis: Directed by Kelly Asbury (co-director of "Shrek 2") and showcasing both classic and original songs by Elton John, the film features the voices of James McAvoy and Emily Blunt as Gnomeo and Juliet, who have as many obstacles to overcome as their quasi namesakes when they are caught up in a feud between neighbors. But with plastic pink flamingos and thrilling lawnmower races in the mix, can this young couple find a happy ending?

Extra Tidbit: Because real life garden gnomes just aren't creepy enough. Although a BRAIN DEAD homage would be welcome in this movie...

I don't know if I would go to the theater and see it, but definitely a rental. The cast is good, for this to be somewhat good. Also, Emily Blunt's voice is so sexy.

It's as if the script was written entirely with the jokes found on popsicle sticks

"Why are we making this?"

That's what ex-Pixar chief John Lassiter supposedly said when he took Disney Animation over in 2006, and killed the project. I can't say there was much in that trailer that I haven't seen done better in other family films already.

Man it's a shame, it really does have a cool concept. But judging by the trailer it looks like it would be pretty disappointing.
