Don't Look: First Poster for Warner Bros' CG Yogi Bear Movie
This is when a big SIGH is totally necessary. Yahoo has unveiled the first poster for Warner Bros upcoming hybrid CGI Yogi Bear movie starring Dan Aykroyd as the voice of Yogi and Justin Timberlake as the voice of his sidekick Boo-Boo. The trailer arrives later this afternoon which means if it wasn't already painful looking at this, you'll have plenty more to complain about later on. I'm sorry, but I just can't get into this, it's probably going to be Alvin and the Chipmunks-level bad, and I just personally don't care to see even more of that. I'll give the trailer a chance, but if that is terrible too, then all hope is lost. But does anyone even care?
A documentary filmmaker travels to Jellystone to shoot a project and soon crosses paths with Yogi Bear, his sidekick Boo-Boo and Ranger Smith. Including T.J. Miller, Anna Faris, Tom Cavanagh, Andrew Daly.
Yogi Bear is directed by former visual effects supervisor Eric Brevig, who directed the awful 3D Journey to the Center of the Earth previously. The script was co-written by Brad Copeland (Wild Hogs, "My Name Is Earl"), Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia (both of Surviving Christmas, Tooth Fairy). Warner Bros is bringing this hybrid Yogi Bear movie to theaters in 3D starting on December 17th this holiday season.

its good for the kiddies. My kids love alvin and the chipmunks, I hate it. But these type of movies are not made for me.

Hey guys! Don't forget that children do exist. So these kinds of movie are aimed for kids Most of these are like babysitters like Alvin and the Chipmunks, Spy Kids, etc. There are plenty of other "adult" movies that you will enjoy. So don't be assholes about it and say shit like "aaaaarrrrgggghhhh!!!!!!"

why is this taking place? to quote @TVsAndyDaly - "because it hasn't yet" which is from the actor's last appearance on the never not funny podcast with the funny and amazing jimmy pardo. (http://pardcast.com)

Screw Yogi; I'm holding out for Yippy, Yappy and Yahooey or Deputy Dawg.

First of all Will, that has nothing to do with this topic and secondly, what you said is BS since it was announced at Comc Con that they only started filming The Green Lantern recently asshole.
Hattori Hanzo on Jul 28, 2010
HA! I second that #10! "I'll go if Hugo Weaving plays Ranger Smith."

The casting is hilarious.

Guys Guys Guys, this could be REALLY IMPORTANT to fans. It could bring Yogi into a new light and answer some incredible questions like, um, what the fuck happened to the rest of Yogi's shirt to only leave a tie and collar and, y'know...other stuff.

Jericho on Jul 28, 2010
Looks like shit!
John on Jul 28, 2010
Justin FREAKING Timberlake as BOO BOO?? It looks like Warner Brothers in just THROWING the cast in the movie with unfitting characters. My decision will be judged though onto the trailer.
Marcus on Jul 28, 2010
maybe if the tittle were Yogi and Boo Boo get stoned then maybe ill watch it
DaftPUNKFAN on Jul 28, 2010
Looks like its gonna amuse me... 😉
pipo on Jul 28, 2010
H ehe he hhe hehheeeee.
Crapola on Jul 28, 2010
How's about a re-release of Boo Boo Runs Wild? Kids would LOVE that shit.
Cracky on Jul 28, 2010
It's just a movie, I can't believe people get so worked up about dums shit like this.... I'm specifically referring to the writer of this article. Chill out dude.
Izyk on Jul 28, 2010
Oh c'mon quit complaining, this is for kids. They will eat this up. It comes out near Chirstmas and there isn't alot going against it that is meant for kids. Just like Chipmunks last year. Tron will obviously overshadow it in press, but kids going to the movies is a given so I am sure it will do well.

Why are there pieces of toast with one bite out of them laying around? Who brings toast to a picnic?
Bladed on Jul 28, 2010
what will the final poster look like, yogi spooning boo boo?
salber on cinema on Jul 28, 2010
The poster is a tad on the homo-BEAR-otic side of things. Oh fuck me. I'm funny as fuck over here. Seriously though. Now I'm going to be haunted by what happened to Yogi's shirt in the first place. Thanks Voice of Reason. Now more than ever. The time is right for the next installment in the Bourne franchise....Captain Caveman IS Jason Bourne. C'mon people. Y'all know that club was badass. Have Muttley be the villain and we're talking Box Office BOFFO!

To all of you just shrugging it off as "this is for kids, whatever"... kids movies do not have to be drivel like this, and I think you will find that most kids, while they will certainly be entertained by this, will like movies that the adults can tolerate too even more. Movies with great characters and a compelling story, such as, I don't know, EVERY PIXAR MOVIE EVER MADE, are the ones the kids will ask to watch over and over again in most cases. Repeat after me - kids movies should be good too. Kids movies should be good too.
