First New Poster for 'Hop' with Russell Brand as the Easter Bunny
Hippity hop? Yep, Hollywood is hitting every holiday. The first new poster for Illumination Entertainment's new movie Hop has debuted on Facebook (via SlashFilm) and it's quite interesting to check out. This is our very first look at the Easter Bunny character British comedian Russell Brand voices. Described as "the world's worst houseguest," Brand plays an Easter Bunny who is accidentally hit by the car of an unemployed slacker played by James Marsden (27 Dresses, The Box), who is then forced to take the holiday creature in until he recovers. This also stars Kaley Cuoco, Elizabeth Perkins, Chelsea Handler and Hugh Laurie. Enjoy!
"As Fred struggles with the world’s worst houseguest, both will learn what it takes to finally grow up." Aww, how cute! Not really, but maybe that's just me. Directing Hop is Tim Hill (Muppets from Space, Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties, Alvin and the Chipmunks) from a screenplay by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio (Despicable Me) as well as Brian Lynch (Big Helium Dog, on Twitter as @BrianLynch). This is the first live-action movie from Illumination Ent., responsible for this year's animated flick Despicable Me, but as you can tell, this has a character that is fully animated anyway. Hop arrives in theaters everywhere starting April 1st next year.

Looks just like him, that must've taken ages in makeup. I hope he rapes a squirrel whilst smoking crack, he's such a good role model I love him now he's off the gear. But seriously he is such an adorable junky lad.

Tim Hill really cant get away from doing kiddie CGI/live action flicks can he? Thats gotta suck being type casted as that director. Unless he loves doing this stuff. In that case...uh....way to go?

Isn't there an industrial sized can of Lysol big enough to spray on this Brand thing to rid us of him forever?

the easter bunny is a lie....hes a drug smuggler he works for the 'ToothFairy' who goes into houses and receives 'lost teeth' as payment and sends quarters to mark the houses. and the easter bunny smuggles the drugs in conveniently colorful eggs to the North. whenever the cops are on his trail he drops chocolate ones *since Cops love chocolate* once they get to the north they are then sent by air down chimneys where the buyers who have quarters are......
