New Muppets Most Wanted Clip
Kermit goes viral... and not with swine flu
Those adorable felt anarchists The Muppets are heading our way for another adventure. Muppets Most Wanted is coming, and to remind us of that while gently poking fun at the latest trend in movie marketing, they've crowdsourced Twitter quotes to promote a movie. Watch Fozzie and co. wittily give this idea the big Fail Bear symbol below.
Muppets Most Wanted takes the Muppets gang on a global tour, including stops in Berlin, Madrid, Dublin and London. But mayhem follows them overseas when they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine, the World’s Number One Criminal, and a dead-ringer for Kermit.
After trapping our green hero in a Russian gulag (overseen by guard Tina Fey), Constantine joins the Muppets on their tour with sidekick Dominic Badguy (Ricky Gervais), who is posing as their tour manager. And on their trail is agent Sam the Eagle, forced to work with fussy Interpol copper Jean Pierre Napoleon (Ty Burrell). Cue a succession of one-upmanship challenges between the two, not the least of which is comparing badges.
Check out the trailer here, or, if you're in the mood for more Muppet spoofery, here's that hilarious Green Lantern homage from the last go-round. Bork! And there's a whole Muppisode to get your gnashers into, too. Finally, if you're in the mood for a batch of new behind-the-scenes images from the film, some fresh pictures have arrived via Collider.
Muppets Most Wanted will be with us on March 28.
