A day before the full-length trailer for "The Smurfs" debuts on Thursday, June 17, a teaser trailer for the movie has come out via Yahoo! Movies. It opens with introduction from Neil Patrick Harris and features shots of some famous tourism objects from around the world such as pyramid in Egypt and Eiffel tower in France. On the closing scene, Grouchy, Papa and Clumsy appear with the background of Big Apple.
In the upcoming movie, Gargamel, who wants to use the Smurfs as charms, discovers the Smurfs' magical village and scatters them into the woods. Accidentally, Clumsy and several other Smurfs are transported to Central Park. As Gargamel pursues them, the blue characters cannot return home easily and must take refuge with a husband and a wife.
Harris is cast to play the primary live-action character named Johan, while Hank Azaria portrays Gargamel. Katy Perry, Jonathan Winters, George Lopez and Alan Cumming are tapped to voice the animated characters. This family movie will hit 3-D theaters in the U.S. starting August 3, 2011.
