The stars looked red hot in blue at “The Smurfs 2” premiere in Los Angeles recently. Britney Spears, who sings “Ooh La La” on the film’s soundtrack, appeared in a figure-hugging dress alongside her two little boys Sean Preston and Jayden James. Neil Patrick Harris and fiancé David Burtka also stepped on the blue carpet with twins Gideon and Harper. And Katy Perry had a special date accompany her as her plus one- her grandmother, who was decked out with a bedazzled cane in true Katy fashion.
In this sequel to Columbia Pictures/Sony Pictures Animation’s hybrid live action/animated family blockbuster comedy The Smurfs™, the evil wizard Gargamel creates a couple of mischievous Smurf-like creatures called the Naughties that he hopes will let him harness the all-powerful, magical Smurf-essence. But when he discovers that only a real Smurf can give him what he wants, and only a secret spell that Smurfette knows can turn the Naughties into real Smurfs, Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette and brings her to Paris, where he has been winning the adoration of millions as the world’s greatest sorcerer. It’s up to Papa, Clumsy, Grouchy, and Vanity to return to our time, reunite with their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow, and rescue her! Will Smurfette, who has always felt different from the other Smurfs, find a new connection with the Naughties Vexy and Hackus – or will the Smurfs convince her that their love for her is True Blue?
Returning cast includes Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, with Katy Perry as Smurfette and Hank Azaria as Gargamel. Brendan Gleeson joins the cast as Victor. Joining the voice cast are Christina Ricci and JB Smoove as Vexy and Hackus.
Opening across the Philippines on August 07 in 3D, 2D and regular theaters, “The Smurfs 2” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.
