Yesterday, video and photographic evidence of the Smurfs movie was released, and we’re glad to see that New York City, the Beat’s hometown, is once again the setting for the deeply profound story of alien-in-America and what we can learn about ourselves and others, especially when the others are small and blue.



  1. I can’t decide which makes me sadder: the use of “Wild Thang” in relation to the trailer or the fact that their movie’s URL is a “shit happens” pun.

  2. This IS a joke right? Funny, funny joke. Like that Marmaduke trailer going around earlier this year. I mean with the dumb jokes, the use of Wild Thing, the bad CGI, obviously it’s not a real film.


  3. A few weeks ago I saw them filming outside the Housing Works bookstore just south of Houston: they’d put up temporary signage and window displays to turn it into a toy shop.

    I hung around waiting for a while to see if Danny Devito painted blue and stripped to his skivvies was going to make an appearance, but he didn’t show.

  4. Thank you for some other fantastic post. The place else could anybody get that kind of info in such an ideal means of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I’m on the search for such info.
