Trailer Talk: The Muppets

the muppets movie poster, 2011I love a trailer that takes you one way, and then yanks you back the other way with something completely goofy and fun. So it goes with the trailer for ‘The Muppets,’ in theaters Nov. 23, 2011.

It starts with Amy Adams and Jason Segel in some sort of romantic drama, then Kermit and gang show up and all of a sudden, it’s a comedy!  Even though the Muppets’ legs on the poster freak me out a little, I’m still really looking forward to the movie, which finds the gang reuniting to save their old studio from a greedy tycoon.

The cast is fantastic: Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, Selena Gomez, Emily Blunt, Jack Black, Neil Patrick Harris and John Krasinski are just a few making an appearance. And that’s just the beginning. Seriously, everyone who’s anyone is in this movie.

I always loved the old Muppet Show, because they didn’t talk down to the audience. It was as much for adults as it was for kids. Probably moreso.

Check out the trailer. Looking forward to ‘The Muppets’?
