If you were looking forward to the romantic comedy Green with Envy starring Jason Segel and Amy Adams, you may be in for a surprise.
Wrapped inside that trailer is the first trailer for Walt Disney's upcoming The Muppets. The trailer begins telling a romantic story gone wrong between Adams and Segel, but eventually the Muppets make their way into the trailer and have fun with the fake out nature of the trailer itself.
Although not represented in the trailer, The Muppets follows Segel as a Muppet fan who must reunite Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, and the rest of the Muppets in time to help save their theater from a clutches of a oil businessman (Chris Cooper.
Segel co-wrote the Muppets script with Nicholas Stoller (Saving Sarah Marshall), with James Bobin (Flight of the Conchords) directing. The Muppets is filled with cameos including Jack Black, Zach Galifianakis, Ricky Gervais, Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, and Emily Blunt.
