9 Truly Bizarre Things You Should Know About ‘The Smurfs’

Smurfs: The Lost Village opens today and while it’s the third Smurfs film from Sony Pictures, it’s essentially a reboot completely unrelated to their previous films. Unlike other franchises Sony has decided to reboot before their time, it actually makes sense for this series, as the Smurfs have been around forever and have done pretty much everything.
