New 'The Muppets' trailer: The road to relevance is filled with fart shoes

The Muppets are everywhere. In our music videos, in Emmy award-winning TV shows, and in a respectable number of movie trailers. So it’s surprising that in The Muppets‘ new trailer, Rashida Jones tells our furry friends, “You guys aren’t famous anymore.”

So begins their quest to reclaim relevance. And how do they do so? Via a world tour, many rehearsals, and singing chickens. Watch the trailer for the Jason Segel-Amy Adams-starring comedy after the jump — it’s so cute, I’m willing to forgive them for joining the “F— You” party one year too late. READ FULL STORY

New 'Muppets' trailer parodies 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo'

Remember that eye-popping trailer for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo that debuted a few months back? Remember that equally eye-popping nude poster for Tattoo? Well, prepare to have your eyes re-popped, because those rascally parodists behind the new Muppets movie have just produced a pitch-perfect imitation of the Tattoo advertising campaign, complete with a why-so-serious picture of Kermit with a (non-nude) Miss Piggy and a new spoof trailer. The trailer features throwaway glances of the starry cameo-cast (including Sarah Silverman, Neil Patrick Harris, and Rico Rodriguez from Modern Family), but still manages to appear lovably DIY. (At one point, the intertitles apologetically admit: “We couldn’t get the rights to the real song, so we had some dude write this one.”) Check it out: READ FULL STORY

Disney's D23: Kermit, Miss Piggy, and Jason Segel offer a sneak peek of 'The Muppets'

In addition to showing off The Avengers, Wreck-It Ralph, and announcing two new original Pixar movies on Saturday, Disney also gave D23 Expo attendees a sneak peek of November’s The Muppets reboot. On hand at the Anaheim Convention Center was star/co-writer/producer/all-around good guy Jason Segel, plus special guests Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy.

First, Segel and Kermit were introduced, with the two sitting on a pair of film director’s chairs. A random guy in the audience shouted, “I love you, Kermit!” and Kermit raised his green arm and promptly responded, “I love you, too!” Moments later, a woman screamed, “I love you, Jason!” Segel thanked the fan and replied, “I look forward to meeting you in person someday.”

Piggy, naturally, was running late. While waiting for her to arrive, Segel and Kermit realized, to their horror, that the clips they were about to show the D23 crowd did not feature Piggy. Enter Piggy, who was driven onstage while sitting in a motorcycle sidecar. READ FULL STORY

'The Muppets': Full trailer promises action, adventure, driving

Following through on the promise at the end of last week’s Green Lantern parody, the new Muppets trailer offers what appears to be a genuine look at the film’s plot. Kermit the Frog talks about “trying to get the old gang back together,” Blues Brothers-style, and sure enough, all the old favorites appear to be in attendance. At one point, Kermit protests, “The Muppets have always been about artistic integrity, not cheap tricks!” which, if nothing else, is probably the first time the words “artistic integrity” have been spoken in a Hollywood film in years. Also, the entire cast squeezes into a van and listens to the “Mah Na Mah Na” song. Who’s excited? Check out the trailer: READ FULL STORY

Another 'Muppet' movie trailer parody: It's Not Easy Being Green (Lantern)

“Wait, wait, wait, stop. Is this another Muppet trailer parody?” asks Jason Segel near the end of the following clip. “Why don’t we just show a real trailer? What are we hiding? …Did we make the movie in Swedish, or something?”

While we see what Segel’s getting at, we’re also enjoying these Muppets spoof trailers too much to ask for a straightforward preview. Previous spots have lampooned romantic comedies and The Hangover; this newest video takes on this weekend’s biggest movie, Green Lantern. It gets extra points for excellently employing a Ryan Reynolds soundalike, and for giving us a good look at Chris Cooper as Tex Richman, an evil oil tycoon who’s apparently buddy-buddy with Statler and Waldorf. Watch the new, emerald-hued trailer after the jump. (Oh, and just so you know: The movie’s not in Swedish.) READ FULL STORY

'The Muppets' give 'The Hangover' wolf pack a run for their money in new trailer

Sure, the wolf pack from The Hangover Part II are poised to dominate the holiday weekend box office, but we’d like to see how they’d fare against “the fuzzy pack.” In their latest teaser (they fooled/charmed us all earlier this week with Green With Envy) that riffs directly on The Hangover sequel’s build-up trailer, we’re warned that the “Fuzzy Pack is Backy Back.” Who knows what kind of shenanigans those Muppets got into to find themselves in jail, but we bet Stu, Phil, and Alan couldn’t even handle it.

If The Muppets turns out to be even half as inspired and funny as these trailers, this could turn out to be the single most satisfying movie going experience of the year, no? Watch the trailer after the jump and see if you agree: READ FULL STORY
