Another Awesome Muppets Poster Arrives
Hey, look, the whole gang is here!

Previous Muppets posters that have seen the light of your computer monitor have been a touch unsettling they're walking? But why? And how? or slightly lacking in the fitting-everyone-in department, but this one, oh my, this one's got the lot, and not a pair of Muppet legs in sight.

Oh, wait, there some are. Still a bit weird, sorry you guys – we know you're coming down to Big Screen to be all kinds of awesome and such, but legs? On a Muppet called Walter dressed like Jason Segel? Makes us feel funny.

Anyway, that doesn't detract from the brilliance of the poster, which manages to cram in – almost literally – all your favourites, from The Swedish Chef to Statler and Waldorf.

Click on the image above a better look at the poster on Fandango.

Oh, and if you're interested in the plot, well then, the plot sees the Muppets reassembled by Kermit when the world's biggest Muppets fan, Walter, uncovers a devilish plot by oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to destroy the Muppet Theatre and drill below it for oil. Helping the furry friends out are Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams), who plan a telethon to bag $10 million and save the day. Here's hoping it works! Huzzah!

The US will see The Muppets in action come November – bad news for us Brits, as The Muppets opens in the UK on February 17, 2012.

Your Comments

"I am not a shrimp, I am a KING PRAWN!"
I'm actually rather glad to see Pepe the Prawn on the poster, of all the Muppet's Tonight characters he was definitely the strongest, and he really came into his own in the surprisingly funny Muppets From Space... "If you tell him I will smack you, I will smack you like a bad, bad donkey." So, it's good to know he's got some prominence (albeit currently under Segel's armpit) in the film. Can't wait for this one, shame we have to wait those two extra months... More
