The ‘Hop’ Trailer Talks and Poops Candy

When the teaser trailer for Hop first hit, it was an incredible moment of adorability and Blur’s “Song 2.” Now, with the first full trailer out, we’re getting a better idea of the Roger Rabbit nature of the flick.

It turns out it’s a mixture of live-action and CGI.

James Marsden stars as a guy who hits the Easter Bunny-elect (voiced by Russell Brand) with his car, and the two starts an unusual friendship that involves one of them pretending to be a stuffed animal in order to hit on the other’s girlfriend. I’ll let you figure out which one.

Check out the trailer for yourself:

This is a tough one. It seems fun, but it also seems like someone covered it in Velveeta. The David Hasselhoff cameo reeks of bad stunt casting, and it seems like more than just a brief moment. It appears to be a plot point.

Fortunately, comedy veterans Elizabeth Perkins, Gary Cole, Hank Azaria and Hugh Laurie are there to play clean up on the expectations front.

Otherwise, it all seems pretty standard. However, Marsden has the ability to make things decidedly non-standard, and anyone who’s seen Sex Drive can attest to that fact.

On the plus side, even if it’s a little by-the-book, it still seems really charming, and it’s nice to see the blend that Roger Rabbit pioneered get a modern spin.

What say you?
