After the second live-action Smurfs movie tanked, Sony did the smart things and moved the little blue folks to animation – and, following the lead of last year’s successful Peanuts movie, they went full CGI.
Smurfs: The Lost Village finds the Smurfs trying to find a mysterious lost village before the evil Gargamel can.
The first trailer for Smurfs: The Lost Village follows the break. Smurfs: The Lost Villaige will premiere on April 7th, 2017.
Singer-actor Demi Lovato has revealed that she’s become a co-owner of CAST Centers – a mental health and wellness treatment facility in Los Angeles – during an interview with Tracy Smith for CBS Sunday Morning.
CAST Centers is where Lovato – who has been open about needing help for bulimia, depression and substance abuse – was referred in 2013.
Follow the jump for more. The full interview will air on CBS Sunday Morning on Sunday, September 11th (9 AM/C).
As a proud Lovatic, I have to say when I first listened to her latest album, Confident, the only song on it I unquestionably loved was the intensely emotional track Stone Cold. Now after a few more listens, I’m really digging everything, except I still hate the title track Confident. The video for Demi’s latest single, just dropped on video.
Everyone here knows of my irrational love of Demi Lovato. I saw her 4 times last year (that I gasp, paid for) and had several opportunities to interview her but could never make it work. Gah! I’m proud of myself for talking to Wilmer at SDCC without asking about Demi (I’m a professional you know). Anyway, Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas have teamed up for their next national tour. The Future Now tour is coming to DC’s Verizon Center July 26th – jeeze, I can’t plan that far ahead. Tickets go on sale Sat. Nov 7th with pre-sale on Nov 3rd. Demi will be on Good Morning America, Thursday Oct 29, and the tonight show Oct 30th. The full court press to promote her new album Confident is in full swing.
Despite the box office failure of the second live-action Smurfs movie, Sony is going ahead with a CG Smurfs movie, Get Smurfy. Why? Because in the rest of the World the Smurfs are huge!
Sony Pictures Animation will be releasing Get Smurfy on March 31st, 2017 in North America – with a voice cast that includes Demi Lovato as Smurfette, Mandy Patinkin as Papa Smurf and Rainn Wilson and the Smurfs arch-nemesis, Gargamel.
