Muppets Green Lantern Spoof Trailer Hits
'Not in Swedish... promise'

16 June 2011  |  Written by Ali Plumb

God it's a good day to be a Muppets fan. First of all we hear the news that The Muppets will be making their presence felt (pun intended) at Big Screen, now there's another Muppets parody trailer on the net too! And it takes the mick out of Green Lantern! Amazing!

So exclamation marks all round for Jason Segel, Amy Adams and the rest of the Muppeteers, because following on from your previous Hangover trailer parody you've managed to keep this little gag going and not lose any of the laughs.

So without any more faffing about, here's the Green Lantern-themed number, complete with a special piece of Swedish Chef-ery right at the very end. All together now: "Birdie birdie birdie..."

Oh, wait, and there's a poster too!

Directed by James Bobin, The Muppets is out in the US on November 23 and arrives over here on February 17.

CAN.NOT.WAIT. Which is unfortunate due to the ABSURD staggering of the release date. Not only does it make illegal downloads more attractive, but it makes spoilers harder to avoid. I can't be the only one going MENTAL over the constant spoilers for SUPER 8 that're plaguing every film site and chat room. More
