Well, a real look at the revamped Sony Animation Smurfs is here... The full trailer for Smurfs: The Lost Village...
Honestly, I'm not too impressed.
Visually, it's gorgeous. Of course, anything other than a tired half live-action "they come to the real world" thing was already nice, but they actually did go all out here. The color work and lighting in particular is very pretty, as is the art direction. Too bad the writing doesn't seem to stack up. Lots of forced one-liners here, and the picture seems like it will be another fast-paced, loudmouth, frenetic romp.
But a trailer is a trailer, so maybe the film could be pretty decent. See, I was hoping for something a little more, because it was emphasized many times how much this Smurfs movie was not going to be like the two hybrid movies, and that it would be closer to the Peyo comics. To me, it looks like just another hyperactive kids flick, and it just happens to star the Smurfs. Hopefully I'm wrong on this one. There were a few funny bits here and there - like one of the Smurfs eating all his rations, but that was about it.
What say you?
