Smurfs to tour SA during September and October!

Johannesburg, South Africa, 1 September 2011 – In a blue and Smurfy- first, Papa Smurf, Smurfette and Smurf, who star in the upcoming Smurfs 3D movie, will be touring South Africa and meeting their fans in September and October.

Cape Town, Pretoria, Durban and Johannesburg will be hosting the 3 Smurf-Celebrities as they visit South Africa for the first time and spread their special kind of blue fun!

Special events for each venue are planned and include arts and crafts, face painting, Wii gaming and much more.

The film, which releases in South Africa on the 30th of September, follows The Smurfs as they make their first 3D trip to the big screen in Columbia Pictures/Sony Pictures Animation’s hybrid live-action and animated family comedy, The Smurfs. When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the Smurfs out of their village, through a magical portal, and into our world, they land in the middle of New York’s 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.

‘Even intergalactic super-villains need a holiday’ seems to be the message being conveyed in this piece of art by Franco Brambilla, entitled Odio l’Estate (I Hate Summer).

A nice addition to the ever-expanding universe of Star Wars art.

This is going to be an awesome movie. Especially since it’s a Spielberg/Jackson collaboration.. Using the same method that Robert Zemeckis birthed and destroyed, motion capture CGI, we trust that the brains of Spielberg and Jackson will revive this very cool art form.

With the previous success of Super 8, which Spielberg produced, we can be assured that this film will be as cool as you think it will be, even more so!

Here’s the Synopsis for the film:

The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn” is the first in the series of 3D motion capture films based on the iconic character created by Georges Remi, better known to the world by his pen name “Herge”.

The film stars Jamie Bell as Tintin, the intrepid young reporter whose relentless pursuit of a good story thrusts him into a world of high adventure, and Daniel Craig as the nefarious Red Rackham. Bell and Craig are joined by an international cast that includes Andy Serkis, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Gad Elmaleh, Toby Jones and Mackenzie Crook.

The second feature in the series is scheduled to be directed by Peter Jackson, with a potential for a third film as well. Spielberg and Jackson will bring Herge’s stories to life employing state-of-the-art performance capture technology developed by Jackson’s Weta Digital.

The film comes out on December 23rd 2011.
