Well, the very first teaser trailer for The Smurfs has hit the web this week, and there really isn’t a heck of a lot to say about it. The amount of footage shown is pretty minimal, and it definitely seems to be taking a page out of the marketing campaign book for the Alvin and the Chipmunks movies. The mixing of the classic Smurfs theme with Tone Loc’s “Wild Thing” essentially says all you need to know.
The story has something to do with The Smurfs themselves coming to New York City, and we briefly see a few of them clinging to the top of a taxi cab. The Smurfs features the voices of Jonathan Winters, George Lopez, Katy Perry, Anton Yelchin, Alan Cumming, Paul Reubens, B.J. Novak, Jeff Foxworthy and Kenan Thompson, and stars Hank Azaria and Neil Patrick Harris. It hits theatres on July 29th, 2011; check out the teaser trailer after the jump and see what you think.
