Sony Pictures announced today the studio is moving forward with a sequel to The Smurfs and is putting Smurfs 2 on the release calendar for August 2, 2013. No other films are scheduled for that month yet.

There are no further details about the new film at this time other than the 2013 release date and Jordan Kerner will be producing.

The studio says The Smurfs has exceeded all of their expectations in these first few days of release. In addition the way the film has performed here in North America (currently $78.8 million), last weekend 23 markets overseas opened to #1 and the movie has taken in more than $135 million to date worldwide.

I can't say I'm surprised. In several years from now, Cars 4, Shrek 5, Smurfs 3, Yogi Bear 3 and Kung-Fu Panda 5 will be released together in the same summer. :(

I was joking, but it *is* sad, when you think about it. The Smurfs are now seen as kiddie fare, associated with juvenile (potty) humor, whereas the original Peyo comics were very mature and appealed to children and adults alike. But because of things like this Smurfs movie (and the Hannah-Barbera show didn't help either), an adult can't read a Smurfs comic-book anymore without being ridiculed.

Yeah, I think the Smurfs being associated as simple children's fare has dated back to the Hanna-Barbera animated series. Animaniacs even did an episode where they spoofed the Smurfs by portraying it as a saccharine, lovey-dovey type show (with the Warners naturally retching at the very sight of it).

It's around the two-minute mark (though the whole episode is definitely worth watching):

I bought one recently. ;) People can think what they want. :lol: Despite how anyone sees the new movie(s) I'm just glad to see English-language prints available on the local shelves again. :)

:D

Yesterday afternoon we went to watch The Smurfs at the cinema. It was dreadful, except for a few funny one-liners...

In the evening we went to see Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. Compared to that, The Smurfs was a gem....!

wow, really? While I didn't care much for the CGI motion capture stuff, Rise was pretty good. You're probably in an unusual minority if you thought The Smurfs was better than Rise...

Don't twist my words... :twisted: I said they're BOTH bad... 8)

Rise of the Apes was just a build-up to nothing....the battle at the bridge was very anti-climactic...and then it just stopped...

SPOILERS:
- 50 or so Apes living in a forest/park...won't the government just bomb that area to get rid of the Apes? The Apes were making a lot of dumb mistakes when they're supposed to be so smart. They only thing they had going for them (which they were unaware of) , was the virus spreading among mankind....which seemed to be thrown in as an afterthought.


The Smurfs was just a fun kiddy movie...with some adult-jokes and references.
