If you saw Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides this weekend you likely saw a trailer for The Muppets, although you wouldn’t of known it by the first half of the trailer. It starts off as a heart warming romance and then quickly switches gears once the Muppets appear on screen.
It’s a very well done trailer and is definitely a must watch. To be honest, this film really wasn’t anywhere on my ‘must see’ list since I’ve never really been a huge Muppets fan, but that’s now changed. It’s looking pretty good judging from what we see in the trailer and the fantastic cast is something that can’t be ignored.
Looking at a November 23rd release date, Jason Segel and Amy Adams star alongside Chris Cooper, Rashida Jones, Zach Galifianakis, Ricky Gervais, Alan Arkin and Billy Crystal. Check out the trailer above and get ready for Muppet domination!
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 $10 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.
