New Muppets Trailer Hits The Web
It's Slumfrog Millionaire

10 November 2011  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

We've had the Green Lantern one, The Hangover one, the Dragon Tattoo one, the Paranormal Activity one, the normal one and now it's Bollywood's turn. Yes, The Muppets have headed east for another one of their loving, trailer-shaped homages.

We think they may just have been fibbing when they said they were done with the pastiche trailers but, hey, it's a Muppet fib so it doesn't count. Tune in, kick back and let everyone's furry friends sing and dance you into Friday evening. Yes, we know it's Thursday but it's 24 hours of fun.



This could well be the final, final pastiche trailer (cue: The Muppets do Tree Of Life), so just to recap: Muppet fan Walter rounds up big brother Gary (Jason Segel) and his girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams) to help him recruit Kermie and the gang and save their old theatre from demolition. The man to hiss at? Greedy oil maniac Tex Richman (Chris Cooper). Booooo!

The Muppets is out in the US on November 23 and arrives over here on February 10.

why the wait?
is the reason for the three month wait only due to marketing? Is there another reason? More
