New “Smurfs” Movie Poster

The Smurfs are the beloved ’80s cartoon classic getting the big screen treatment.

On Aug. 3, those lovable blue creatures that kept you in stitches when you were still knee-high to a grasshopper swap their magical forest in favor of The Big Apple. Raja Gosnell, whose credits include Home Alone 3 and Scooby Doo, steps behind the camera for the 3D feature, which features an all-star cast that includes Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, Sofia Vergara, Hank Azaria, Anton Yelchin, Jonathan Winters, Katy Perry, and Alan Cumming.

Here’s the Synopsis: “When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into ours — in fact, smack dab in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.”
