After a mysterious sighting on Central Park, a couple's house is 'invaded' by the small blue creatures.
A new trailer for "The Smurfs" has made its way out for viewing pleasure via Yahoo! Video. Unlike the previously released teaser trailer, the new one has more real footage from the film. It opens with a mysterious sighting of blue lights on Earth's sky which then leads to three Smurfs' arrival at a human couple's house. Neil Patrick Harris' character warns Jayma Mays' not to be fooled by the Smurfs' cuteness but she finds them friendly and soon gets along with one of the smurfs.
When Gargamel, who wants to use the Smurfs as charms, discovers the Smurfs' magical village and scatters them into the woods, Clumsy and several other Smurfs are accidentally 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.
Hank Azaria is cast as Gargamel, with Sofia Vergara and Tim Gunn playing other live-action characters. Katy Perry, Jonathan Winters, George Lopez and Alan Cumming meanwhile provide the voice to the CGI characters.
Directed by Raja Gosnell, "The Smurfs" is scripted by J. David Stem, David N. Weiss. A new take of the famous cartoon of the same title, this family movie is set to hit theaters across the nation on August 3.
