New Trailer and Images for HOP

     February 9, 2011

Universal has released a full-length trailer for their upcoming live-action/CGI family comedy Hop.  The film features Russell Brand as the voice of the Easter Bunny scion who doesn’t want the gig of delivering candy to people.  Also, he shits jelly beans.  I never expected to see a trailer where a character shits out jelly beans on to the roof of James Marsden’s car, but I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer along with some new images.  Hop opens April 1st.

Here’s the official synopsis for Hop:

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.

The film is helmed by Tim Hill, director of the blockbuster Alvin and the Chipmunks and produced by Chris Meledandri’s Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me)

    That looks surprisingly…watchable.

    I really enjoyed Despicable Me and it wasn’t even a Pixar film. Hop looks just as fun as Despicable Me so I’m down.

    Shouldn’t this be retitled as iHOP? LOL

    It actually was originally called IHOP.

    Brian Lynch, a comic book writer, co-wrote this. If it’s anywhere near as funny as he is, count me in.

    Loved this trailer!
    I’m sure the writers of DESPICABLE ME can do no wrong and since this movie is written by them + Brian Lynch (look for him on twitter, he’s really really funny) I’m sure it will be good fun :-)
