Film The Muppets/The Muppets Most Wanted

215 posts in this topic

I love the Muppets, in fact I love everything the Henson company did up until the mid-'90s and then things started to go wrong, especially for the Muppets. Muppets' Christmas Carol is the last great film the studio made but they have been making an effort to return to their roots of late with a Dark Crystal sequel and Fragglerock film in development. The first big release we will see is a brand new Muppet movie and for once it isn't based on a classic piece of literature. Written by Jason Segel (also starring) and Nicholas Stoller the film seems to be going back to the old style Muppet movies.

Synopsis: On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the <ccc style="font-size: inherit; background-color: yellow; " title="">£6.34</ccc> million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With secret, signature, celebrity cameos, “The Muppets” hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.

I'm not even sure half the footage in the teaser even appears in the film considering it seems to be about a fake romantic comedy called Green with Envy (it even gets its own fake film poster) that doesn't sound like it could possibly fit in with the general synopsis for the Muppets movie.

Well I love every inch of Amy Adams so that's a major plus point and Jason Segel seems to land himself in great, funny roles very often so that's onto a winner for me, add in the glory that is the Muppets and I think I'm sold already.

I'd say that teaser is pretty good considerd on it's own merits.

Sign me up, I'm in for a good Muppet Movie.

MUPPETS !

[size="7"]And they're not CGI.

Sorry, I just needed to get that out of my system. Thank fuck. I haven't got over the shitty, wanky CGI Yoda.I have now.

:)

Muppety love. :wub:

Great hopes for this. And lets not forget the Dark Crystal (squeeze me another Gelfling - this one's dry) or indeed Fraggle Rock.

Have a picture of the sexiest muppet of them all, just to celebrate.

Green with Envy (it even gets its own [url=http://collider.com/wp-content/uploads/green-with-envy-movie-poster-01-411x600.jpg]fake film poster[/url])
[/quote]

[url="http://bitcast-a-sm.bitgravity.com/slashfilm/wp/wp-content/images/ZZ4DE6424B.jpg"]Bigger[/url] version is...more helpful. (Zoom in.)

It even looks like it's trying to be the UK version of the fake poster - 'theatres' is spelt our way, and it says 'this November 23' (which sounds weird) instead of 'this Thanksgiving'.

Are they though? It's a valid question. What about the cast of Sesame Street? Is there a Muppet caste system in play? I demand answers!

Yes, even Sesame Street characters, including the likes of Big Bird, are Muppets. [url="http://www.sesamestreet.org/characters"]It's official.[/url]

The voices are still wrong. And Ricky Gervais is in it. I really hope they don't fuck it up.

Slash Film has a new teaser trailer, not quite as good as 'Green With Envy', but it's The Muppets so it doesn't matter.

After seeing the vampire puppet musical bit in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, I'm rather optimistic, on the other hand.

Sorry, each page needs Red Fraggle.

These posts remind me of seeing Muppet Treasure Island repeatedly at the Cambrian Cinema in Aberystwyth. We were just about the only adults in there who were unaccompanied by sprogs. By the third time we went we got bladdered and had learnt the words to "Professional Pirate" and upset lots of youngsters with our raucus drunken singing.

[quote="Various muppets, and of course, TIM CURRY!"]
Upstage, lads, this is my ONLY number!
...
Now take Sir Francis Drake, the Spanish all despise him
But to the British he's a hero and they idolize him
It's how you look at buccaneers that makes them bad or good
And I see us as members of a noble brotherhood
We're honorable men
And before we lose our tempers we will always count to ten
On occasion there may be someone you have to execute
But when your a professional pirate
