Are you ready for the next kid-friendly, live-action/CGI hybrid from the director who brought you Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties and Alvin & the Chipmunks? That’s what you’ll be getting this upcoming April Fools Day with Hop, helmed by Tim Hill and co-scripted by Despicable Me writers Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio.
Hop features the vocal talents of Russell Brand as the soon-to-be-crowned Easter Bunny (or, EB), who’d like to spend his days rockin’ out on the drums and becoming a celebrity in Hollywood – rather than delivering candy around the world once a year. James Marsden costars in the flesh as Fred, the hapless human who ends up befriending EB as the two (wait for it)… “learn what it finally takes to grow up.”
Obviously this pic is strictly for the 10-and-under crowd, who’re more likely to get a kick out of EB playing Rock Band, pooping out rainbow-colored jelly beans, and getting cozy with Fred’s girlfriend. So unless there will be kids tagging along on your next trip to the theater (or you and some friends are mildly intoxicated when you go), there’s little reason to see Hop when it arrives.
