First Actual Trailer for The Muppets
Posted 06.19.11 by Ryan
So far, the marketing campaign for The Muppets has focused on trailer parodies, starting with a trailer that pretended to be a romantic comedy called Green with Envy starring Jason Segel and Amy Adams before it introduced Kermit, Miss Piggy, and the rest of the gang. The second trailer was a parody of The Hangover Part II that introduced "the Fuzzy Pack" while the third trailer parodied the just-released Green Lantern.
Finally the actual trailer for the movie has been released, which shows Segel, Adams, and Walter, the biggest Muppets fan, help reunite the Muppets to save their theater from a wealthy oilman named Tex Richman (Chris Cooper), who wants to take their property so he can drill for oil beneath it.
Besides starring in The Muppets, Segel co-wrote the script with Saving Sarah Marshall director Nicholas Stoller. Like the previous Muppets movies, this one also features plenty of movie star cameos, including Jack Black, Ricky Gervais, Zach Galifianakis, Danny Trejo and Wanda Sykes. James Bobin (Flight of the Conchords) directs.
