Want to See Russell Brand Poop Jelly beans? If you do check out the offical first trailer for CGI animated/live action hybrid HOP released by Universal Pictures via Apple.
Right up until Sunday there there was virtually nothing as in footage from this movie and what footage we had all it did show was a animated rabbit called Hop(voice by Russell Brand) who played drums to a Blur song, that can say a thousand things but it didn’t tell you was in Oasis words “Whats The Story Morning Glory?!” We got a sneek peek at Superbowl at the weekend and finally we get to see more footage and also the connection with the drums.
One of my American friends Richie was abosultely shocked when I told him Russell Brand (and Ricky Gervais) arent as big in the UK they believed them to be, he was putting on the scale Hollywoods elite in UK . But as Brand is an massive name now in USA he’s getting lead roles such as Get Him To The Greek, Arthur remake (yikes!) big enough to pull in bums on seats, so why not get him to voice a animated rabbit that craps jellybeans! Film Studios will here $$$$! The movie does have the producers from Despicable Me which should help this do good both sides of the Atlantic with James Marsden,Kaley Cuoco, Hank Azaria, Elizabeth Perkins, Gary Cole, Chelsea Handler, Hugh Laurie also on the cast (acting & voice).
As I always say about family movies with actors involved I dont personally like or the casting is a bit on the thinside with qaulity, its the old test if the children love it, its done good in my eyes! Hop will be out April 1st.
Blending state of the art animation with live action, Hop is a comedy about E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand), the teenage son of the Easter Bunny. On the eve of taking over the family business, E.B. leaves for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream of becoming a drummer. He encounters Fred (James Marsden), an out-of-work slacker with his own lofty goals, who accidentally hits E.B. with his car. Feigning injury, E.B. manipulates Fred into providing him shelter, and Fred finds himself with the world’s worst houseguest.
