‘Hop’ Poops Out New Trailer Along With Jelly Beans

Anyone else see this formula as a standard template for many CG animated movies?

Everybody knows that Easter Bunnies are supposed to deliver candy, but what if one Easter Bunny… played in a rock band?

Everybody knows that pandas are supposed to be fat and slow, but what if one panda… became a kung-fu master?

Everybody knows that super-villains are supposed to be evil, but what if one super-villian… became a loving father of three adopted children?

Everybody knows that bees are supposed to make honey, but what if one bee… sued the entire human race in a court of law?

That last one is actually what happens in Bee Movie. Yup, I saw Bee Movie, and that totally happens. Anyway, I don’t necessarily think Universal’s Hop looks Smurfs bad, but it also seems like stale old mini-Snickers at this point.

The Russell Brand voiced cartoon/live action mix will be in theaters April 1st to cash in on families who can’t get enough of that sweet, sweet Easter. (Deadline)
