Box office preview: Can 'The Muppets' dethrone 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn'?

Better clear your plate for some leftovers. The weekend following Thanksgiving typically sees few, if any, new releases. There are two reasons for this. First, if a studio opened a film this weekend, it’d likely be kicked off screens by Christmas due to an avalanche of December releases. And, second, if a studio has a movie that’s strong enough to withstand the December competition, why not release it a week earlier and take advantage of the holiday weekend?

So here we are with no new wide releases opening. The biggest question will be whether The Muppets can knock Twilight: Breaking Dawn off its box-office mantle. Here’s how I think the top five will finish: READ FULL STORY

Box office report: 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn' and 'The Muppets' lead Thanksgiving holiday weekend

As expected, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 led the box office once again over the extended Thanksgiving frame, but Disney’s The Muppets reboot more than held its own in second place. Meanwhile, newcomers Arthur Christmas and Hugo started modestly, and The Descendants, My Week with Marilyn, and The Artist all impressed in limited release. Here’s how the box office played out over the holiday weekend: READ FULL STORY

'The Muppets': Let's talk about Chris Cooper's rap (SPOILERS)

Chris-Cooper-Muppets

Back when I first read that Chris Cooper had signed on for The Muppets, the combination already sounded delightfully weird. What would a leather-voiced Oscar winner want with America’s favorite felt-face musicians? Would he lead them on a drug-fueled vision quest, à la Adaptation? Or suffocate them with sociopathic rage like in American Beauty? It was a pop culture mash-up worthy of a double take. (Beware: Spoilers ahead.) READ FULL STORY

Box office preview: 'Twilight' goes up against a trio of kids movies over Thanksgiving weekend

It’s Thanksgiving weekend, the ultimate time for families to hit the movie theater in search of wholesome fare that will please both Aunt Dawn and little nephew Woody. Thus, we’re getting an onslaught of kiddie fare this weekend: The Muppets, Arthur Christmas, and Hugo are all hitting theaters. Unfortunately for those films there’s a little phenomenon called Twilight to contend with. Here’s how the box office should shake out over the five-day weekend: READ FULL STORY

The Muppets whip their hair like Willow Smith with Radio Disney -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

In the ramp up for their upcoming return to the big screen, the Muppet gang has parodied Twilight and Paranormal Activity (as well as many other movies) and, in the TV realm, even spoofed ABC Family’s hit series Pretty Little Liars. But their promotional tour just doesn’t stop: Kermit and Miss Piggy recently stopped by Radio Disney and take on Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair”!

The cute interlude — which you can watch in a clip below — takes place with on-air personality Jake, but the Muppets (in addition to Kermit and Miss Piggy, those attending included Fozzie, Animal, Beaker, Sam the Eagle, and more) were in the studio mostly to chat with DJ Ernie D. From what we hear, the interview — as you might just imagine with these characters — devolved into near-chaos as the crew tried to take over Radio Disney. You can catch that all on Radio Disney today (which also happens to be the network’s 15th birthday!) at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT, but in the meantime enjoy Kermit and Piggy doing their best Willow Smith:

'The Muppets' parodies 'Twilight' posters

The Muppets meant to say they’re done with the parody portion of their advertising — except for print. And with The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 closing in on theaters, we now can enjoy three one-sheets for The Muppet Saga: There’s the Edward-esque Vamphibian (Kermit), Bella Swine (Miss Piggy), and WereRowlf (clearly long-haired and shirtless like Jacob in the early films). Check them out below:  READ FULL STORY

The latest 'Muppets' clip: Life's a song and dance

In Disney’s latest clip from The Muppets, we learn that Walter can sing, dance, and wear the heck out of a powder blue suit. During a musical romp around town, Walter and Gary (costar Jason Segel) gather a crowd to sing about the joys of living. Unfortunately for Walter, Gary’s gangly dance style spells high kicks and pratfalls for the newest Muppet. See the clip — also the first peek at the new Muppets songs from Flight of the Conchords‘ Bret McKenzie — after the jump. READ FULL STORY

New 'Muppets' clips: More Walter and an omelet diversion

Disney just released three new clips from Nov. 23′s The Muppets, starring Jason Segel, Amy Adams, and everyone’s favorite felt-faced friends. We learn a few more things about the newest Muppet, Walter. Namely, he may not be a crack detective, but, boy, does he know where to find a good chili dog.

In another clip, we’re treated to a confrontation between Miss Piggy (looking ravishing as ever) and her latest rival for Kermit’s attention. It has to be the single greatest use of the line, “Oh, look! An omelet station!” in cinematic history. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Orson Welles! See the new clips after the jump.

New 'Muppets' trailer declares the film's done with parodies. Except...

Did you enjoy The Muppets‘ parody of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo? How about their spoof of The Green Lantern? Too bad — The Muppets are done (done!) with mock trailers. Or, as they say in their newest teaser, “This now completes the parody portion of our advertising.”

That’s not to say they don’t get a few more spoofs in: The final parody trailer pokes fun at Paranormal Activity, Puss In Boots (why is there no cat Muppet?!), and Breaking Prawn, which might just be more tolerable than the original for some of us. Watch the trailer starring “Jason The Segel” after the jump — and marvel about how you still laugh at “fart shoes.” (I’m sorry, I’m 5.) READ FULL STORY
