Universal Pictures has released the second trailer for the upcoming CG/live-action family film, Hop.
Blending state of the art animation with live action, Hop is a comedy about E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand), the teenage son of the Easter Bunny. On the eve of taking over the family business, E.B. leaves for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream of becoming a drummer. He encounters Fred (James Marsden), an out-of-work slacker with his own lofty goals, who accidentally hits E.B. with his car. Feigning injury, E.B. manipulates Fred into providing him shelter, and Fred finds himself with the world’s worst houseguest.
Also stars Kaley Cuoco, Hank Azaria, Gary Cole, Elizabeth Perkins, David Hasselhoff, Chelsea Handler and Hugh Laurie.
The film is helmed by Tim Hill, director of the blockbuster ‘Alvin and the Chipmunks’ and produced by Chris Meledandri’s Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me).
