Second Official Trailer for Illumination's 'Hop' with James Marsden
Meet "E.B." Universal recently unveiled the new theatrical trailer on Apple for Hop, their upcoming Easter Bunny live-action-plus-CGI-bunny movie starring Russell Brand as the (voice of the) adorable lil' bunny. Our first introduction to this involved the rabbit playing a drumset, leaving everyone confused, but now we get a look at the live-action world and story and, I'm still not that impressed. The remaining cast includes: James Marsden as the guy named Fred who takes him in, plus: Kaley Cuoco, Elizabeth Perkins, Chelsea Handler and Hugh Laurie. This is worth watching just for the crazy concept, but beyond that, it's up to you.

"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's fully animated anyway. Hop lands in theaters everywhere starting on April 1st this year.
