The Muppets & Real Steel Join Big Screen

Incredible news for fans of everything amazing. Disney's The Muppets and DreamWorks' Real Steel are the latest additions to the line-up for "Empire presents... BIG SCREEN". Yup, Kermit's people have put pen to paper (pictured). Yes, it's happening – and you can buy tickets here.

Here's the BIG SCREEN announcement in full:

"The Muppets are some of the most iconic and beloved characters in entertainment history.  We couldn’t be more excited to announce that “Empire presents…BIG SCREEN” will host a look at the hotly anticipated new Disney movie, THE MUPPETS, due to hit the big screen Feb 17th 2012.  When Walter, the world's biggest Muppet fan, and friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) discover the nefarious plan of an oilman (played by Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theatre, they help Kermit reunite the Muppets to stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever to save the theatre. Guests at BIG SCREEN will have a unique opportunity to see The Muppets interviewed and to see a sneak peak of the movie.  We can’t wait!"

"REAL STEEL (DreamWorks Pictures) is a gritty, white knuckle action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech.  REAL STEEL stars Hugh Jackman as a washed-up fighter and small-time promoter who reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender.  REAL STEEL is directed by Shawn Levy (NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM, DATE NIGHT), who we are delighted to say will be attending “Empire presents…BIG SCREEN” in person to present a sneak peak from the October 7th 2011 release.  In addition to showing footage from the movie, Shawn will be discussing the amazing techniques he used in bringing the movie to the big screen!  It promises to be a hugely entertaining experience, the chance to see one of Hollywood’s top directors describing in person how he created what promises to be one of the most thrilling movie experiences of the year."

So there's two more reasons to get excited about this summer's must-attend moviethon. With any luck, the Swedish Chef will be joining us live from his Stockholm kitchenette, although that remains TBC everywhere apart from in our over-active imagination. So whatcha waiting for? Head to the BIG SCREEN website for more details and to buy tickets.

all good but... will thereally hot releases be at Big Screen?
So far confirmed for Big Screen are appearances from Conan, Pirates (Aardman), Real Steel and the Muppets. Which is good, but let's be honest, most people will want to see something of The Avengers, Drak Knight Rises, The Amazing Spiderman and the Superman reboot. Any word on whether these will eb makign an apeparnce? There's nothing genuinely hot yet confirmed for Big Screen,,, More

I'm very excited at the prospect of seeing Kermit in person. He's been a hero of mine since I was a child. More
