While my own bunnies will occasionally create their own cacophonous “symphony,” (almost always at 4:27 a.m.) with jar lids, empty oatmeal containers, rattles, boxes, etc. they’ve got nothing on the animated bunny starring in the movie, “Hop,” scheduled for release in April 2011.
Starring Russell Brand and James Marsden “Hop” is a blend of animation and live-action. What’s it all about? Fred (James Marsden), an unemployed slacker who accidentally injures the Easter Bunny (voiced by Brand). Fred takes in the bunny as he recovers, and as he struggles with his challenging houseguest, both learn what it takes to finally grow up.
Let’s hope this movie doesn’t prompt people to dash out and actually buy “Easter bunnies”….
The trailer features Brand’s bunny character jamming out on the drums to ‘Song 2′ by Blur and the tagline “Candy, Chicks and Rock n’ Roll.
‘Hop’ premieres Apr. 1, 2011 — just in time for Easter! Watch the trailer below.
