The Smurfs 2

Animation Magazine - - Awards Preview -

Stu­dio: Sony Pic­tures An­i­ma­tion Di­rec­tor: Raja Gos­nell Dis­trib­u­tor: Columbia Pic­tures Re­lease Date: July 31 Box Of­fice: $342.5 mil­lion [$70.6 mil­lion] Rot­ten Toma­toes Rat­ing: 14% Synop­sis: The evil Gargamel (Hank Azaria) is at it again—this time, kid­nap­ping Smur­fette (Katy Perry) in or­der to use her spe­cial pow­ers to bring his wicked semiS­murfs, the Naugh­ties,into full Smurf­dom. Papa Smurf (the late Jonathan Win­ters) and the rest of the blue crew must re­unite with their hu­man pals and travel to Paris to res­cue their damsel in dis­tress. The Odds: The Smurfy se­quel’s el­i­gi­bil­ity will again hinge on whether the hy­brid film has enough an­i­ma­tion to qual­ify for the cat­e­gory (pre­vi­ous Smurfs verdict: nope). While the fran­chise film once again raked in plenty of cash for Sony, which the big name voice cast will be happy about, crit­ics were pretty Smurfed-out.
