Smurfs up: Mushrooms, blue creatures in store for Thursday?

Signs went up yesterday on parts of Seventh Street and Avenue A for...



HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Here's the story from the official news release:

Audiences everywhere are in for a Smurfy good time as the Smurfs make their first 3D trip to the big screen. When the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village, they tumble from their magical world and into ours -- in fact, smack dab in the middle of 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. The film is set for release August 3, 2011.

Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, Sofia Vergara, and Hank Azaria star on camera opposite an all-star voice cast. Anton Yelchin will play Clumsy Smurf; comedy legend Jonathan Winters, who voiced roles in the “Smurfs” television series, will voice Papa Smurf; Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Katy Perry will play Smurfette; Alan Cumming will play Gutsy Smurf; “SNL’s” Fred Armisen will voice Brainy Smurf; and George Lopez will play Grouchy Smurf.


Hmm... the Smurfs must find a way back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down? I think this plot might be more interesting:

The Smurfs are mistakenly accused of killing a big time gang leader named Cyrus. Soon they have every gang in the city out to get revenge. The Smurfs must make their way from one end of New York to their turf on the other side of the city.

Seriously, though... is the East Village going to stand in for Smurf Village? Do they run into Fratty Smurf or Bachelorette Party Smurf?

Oh, and P.S.

What's red, white, and blue, and has stars?

City officials further shame NYC by declaring Smurf Week

Our friend Jen Doll over at Runnin' Scared has the details about Smurf Week. Which city officials announced yesterday. It's all a big marketing thingee leading up to the release next Friday of "The Smurfs Movie," the latest Dogme 95 film by Lars von Trier.

Anyway, is this a big deal? Those little fuckers have been running rampant here the last few months anyway...

Demolition Smurf, apparently



EV Grieve readers are helping to crack this case: who is responsible for leaving the C-4 here? And everyone here seems to be taking this rather seriously:

Insurgent (by which I mean B&T) dead drop from one of those pesky helicopters that were around all summer.

Hipsters. They were half way through building their bombs and suddenly lost interest. They were all like, whatevs, shrugged their shoulders, and walked away.

Zombies!

I think it was EV Lambo. Dumped the junk from her trunk and vroom, off she sailed. Notice how she's been keeping a low profile lately?

Sarah Connor left it there in hopes that her son, John, could use it to fight the machines in the future.

There were also some actual plausible explanations there too.

Exclusive: Smurf cast member shopping for East Village condo

After filming on the East Village last week, we hear that one of the Smurf cast members is absolutely GaGa over the prospects of living here... in fact, our spies have seen the cast member condo shopping .... over the weekend, he was wooed by the bikini-klad karaoke krowd at the A Building on 13th Street...



and he was equally bowled over by the private gated driveway at the 15-stories of condo at the Bowery and East Fourth Street...

Do you have any opinions about noise in the East Village?


[Smurf #woo circa 2010]

Then have we got a survey for you! (And you!)

Via the EVG inbox...

Dear New Yorkers:

Toward that end, we are asking all community residents take the survey by March 15, 2016.

Thank you!

EV Grieve Summer Movie Preview: The Smurfs 2 in 3-D; they didn't have the balls to return to film here


[Spotted yesterday at the Loews Village 7 on Third Avenue]

OK, truth is, we had no idea that there was a Smurfs sequel. But, as you will recall doubtlessly, the Smurfs were the talk of the neighborhood back in the heady days of the spring of 2010. Crews filmed several scenes here. After the shoot, the cast lingered, pulling some Bynes-like shit and we all had to get 311 on them.

Flashback!


Anyway, for Part 2 in 3-D, these little fuckers the Smurfs (Smurfs'?) action is based in Paris (France).

And on an actual serious note, Part Deux marks the last film for the great Jonathan Winters, who died on April 11. He supplied the voice for Papa Smurf.

Important questions arise after someone tosses blue paint on First Avenue plywood

A few readers were curious about the blue paint tossed against the plywood next to PS122 on First Avenue...




Art project? Random vandalism? Misguided anger about PS122 closing for renovations? Blue Man Group guerrilla marketing? "The Smurf Movie" guerrilla marketing?

The agony and the Ecstasy: A report from the EV Grieve Eau Claire Bureau


A story from May 13... though relevant given "The Smurfs Movie" is filming here now... and, well...

A 16-year-old boy was charged Wednesday in adult court in Clark County with four drug-related felonies, including selling Ecstasy in tablet form of cartoon characters Papa Smurf and Homer Simpson.

Your vehicle may be towed tonight to make way for a Smurf or two



So as you likely know, "The Smurfs Movie" is back tomorrow ... setting up for 39 hours for that 13-second scene ... Anyway, will any bosses be getting a call like this tomorrow, "Yeah, I'm going to be a little late today. I need to pick up my car at the impound lot. It was towed for The Smurfs Movie. Yes, Smurfs..."

Will "The Smurf Movie" give The Bourgeois Pig any ideas?

Last night, "The Smurfs Movie" came to life on Seventh Street between Avenue A and First Avenue... and The Bourgeois Pig had a starring role... at least the fictitious sidewalk cafe that was put up by the crew for the scene... in which lead Neil Patrick Harris exited a cab and walked into 111 E. Seventh St. next door... However, given how the sidewalk cafe looks, will the Pig brass get any ideas about opening their own now...? Would this get ok'd by CB3?




The crew set up the tables very early ... around 6:30 a.m. yesterday...

On Seventh Street tomorrow: Smurfs, Ted Danson, craft services

Yesterday, smurfers placed more signs around the neighborhood about filming "The Smurf Movie" here in Mushroom Village...




P.S.

Thursday promises to be a busy day for filming on Seventh Street... up on the next block, "Bored to Death," starring Ted Danson and Jason Schwartzman, will be setting up shop...
