Film trailer: 'The Smurfs' with Katy Perry

The first trailer was released on March 10 for the live-action/animated hybrid 3D film The Smurfs, featuring the voices of pop star Katy Perry, comedian George Lopez and actor Alan Cumming as the little blue creatures.

The footage opens in Manhattan with the announcement that sightings have been reported of Smurfs in Central Park and around the city. The cute critters encounter humans and create adorable havoc, as they try to escape the grip of the wizard Gargamel.

The original Smurfs, created by Belgian cartoonist Peyo, were turned into an American television series and now the computer-generated versions are coming to the big screen. The Smurfs use the word "smurf" to mean just about anything.

The film stars the non-animated versions of Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs), Jayma Mays (Glee) and Hank Azaria (Night at the Museum).

Directed by Raja Gosnell (Beverly Hills Chihuahua), the story follows the wizard Gargamel, who has chased the little blue Smurfs out of their magical world and sent them falling onto Earth. The tiny blue beings must find a way back to their village before Gargamel nabs them.

The Smurfs
will be smurfed in theaters on August 3.
