“Yogi Bear” teaser poster hits Web. Hide the picnic baskets.

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Did “Garfield” teach us nothing? Have the lessons of “Marmaduke” gone unnoticed?

The tepid box-office figures for each ($75 and $32 million, respectively) suggest that the ticket-buying audience does not want its collective childhood destroyed by soulless Hollywood products meant to cash in on live-action nostalgia. And yet, the machine continues to roll.

Up next? Yogi Bear and Boo Boo, the picnic basket stealing bears from Hannah-Barbera cartoons of our youth, will be making their way to the big screen for a pre-Christmas Day release. Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake will voice the main characters. Poor T.J. Miller of “Cloverfield” and “She’s Out of My League” has to play Ranger Jones, while Anna Faris will lend her voice to the character of Rachel. Need another reason not to see this film? It’s being released in 3-D.

A teaser poster hit the Web this morning. It’s pictured above. Masochists who want to see a larger version can click over to The Playlist. “Yogi Bear” hits theaters on Dec. 17.
