Hop Trailer Starring Russell Brand and James Marsden 2011-02-09 11:25:55

Russell Brand Makes the Easter Bunny Hip in the Hop Trailer

When the first teaser for Hop premiered, all we could see was a a little bit of Russell Brand as an animated bunny going to town on a drum kit. Now we have the full trailer for the CGI/live action hybrid with more of the Brand-voiced "E.B.," the little drummer who is in line to inherit the job of Easter Bunny. The problem is that he doesn't want to follow in the family business: he has ambitions of being in a band (this generation of rabbits is so irresponsible).

When he leaves home to fulfill his dreams of fame, he's nearly run over by James Marsden, the human who becomes his new, albeit reluctant, sidekick. The two begin their weird friendship, while the bunny is both pursuing his dreams (which includes a cameo from David Hasselhoff at America's Got Talent) and being pursued by his bunny brethren. The preview is actually kind of funny at times, thanks to Brand's mumble-y humor, though he also makes the beloved Easter Bunny kind of a perv. Watch for yourself when you read more.
