New Muppets Trailer Is Here!
Let's travel by map...

14 October 2011  |  Written by James White

Well, it had to happen sometime. After several truly inspired trailers, it was only natural that Kermit and the gang would trip up and put out a bad pro.... Oh, who can keep that ruse up? The new Muppets trailer is here and it's bleedin' brilliant! Stop reading this and watch it below.

 

This is the second full theatrical trailer for the movie, and while it doesn't boast a parody theme, it's packed with the sort of Muppety goodness that makes us think the film will be truly special. From little pop culture gags to winks at cinema in general (who doesn't want a "travel by map" button in their car now?) it's a winner through and through.

The plot, for the two people still unaware, finds Walter, the world's biggest Muppet fan, recruiting his brother (Jason Segel) and big bro's girlfriend (Amy Adams) for a trip to meet his heroes. When they discover that the gang's old theatre is under threat from an evil oil baron (Chris Cooper), they set about rounding up the fuzzy friends to launch a telethon and save the place. Cue madness, music, mockery and everything we love about the Muppets.

The film arrives in America on November 23, and it's enough to send us into an animal-style frenzy that we have to wait until February 10 to see it over here.

Seven steps of AWESOME
Being a life-long fan of Kermit & Co (Bobo is a legend) I was saddened when they fell out of favour and the tv and movies dried up. They stuck at it in their wilderness years (the Bohemian Rhapsody spoof is brilliant) and now they're back, back, back. This movie seems to be on the same lines as the classic Christmas Carol, in having so many favourite moments for people to have. Really looking forward to this. More
