The Muppets get their first tricky teaser trailer (and poster?)

May. 23, 2011by:

When I was told the first trailer for THE MUPPETS had premiered, I got excited, but then all I could find was this video for a movie called GREEN WITH ENVY starring Jason Segel and Amy Adams.

Something felt amiss, but I kept watching and it soon became clear that yes, this movie was in fact the Muppet project it promised to be, and was merely trying to fool me for a minute. You tricksters! (see poster below as well)

I may be mad about CGI Smurfs and Chipmunks and such starring in kids movies these days, but I'll be damned if I'm not crazy excited to see the Muppets back in action. No CGI to be found! Just felt and strings everywhere. Check out the new spot below via Apple:

Er...

I'd think just having the "Green With Envy" title and such would be good enough, and have people spreading it around "trust me, you have to watch this trailer."

Granted, imdb made the same mistake, either way, shame on anyone that ruins the surprise.

It's hard to see how Paul Tassi could

have gotten people to click on this story without spoilering it: how about titling it It's Not Easy Being Green With Envy? And yes, that was a freakin' awesome trailer. The Muppets are back!

This was FANTASTIC. Easily my favorite trailer so far this year.

Extra tidbit: I'm 21, and I have always loved the Muppets. But my boyfriend is only three years younger, and while he's aware of the Muppets, I think all he's ever seen is Muppet Treasure Island, and he has no attachment to them one way or the other. Sad, really.

lol best trailer ever i love how the announcer suddenly doesnt seem to know whats going on, and the muppets lines. classic stuff! -- and alot of kids do know who the muppets are their pairents have shown them episodes if not some of the movies and christmas carol. and if theyre not fully familiar with the muppets i bet after seeing this movie alot of little kids pairents will be buying dvds of the seasons for their kids to watch.

Of course it is Paul Tassi who manages to crap the bed with this post. Great trailer but why tell us what you told us in the post before hand? Chalk another one up for this guy.

Movie looks great. Post handled poorly!

Isn't the suprise of the teaser the best bit? Why would you not try and keep the secret... the marketing team obviously tried to be original and you go an spoil it in the title of the post. Kinda pisses me off. Movie is going to be amazing though... can't wait!!!!

Like Transformers, I really don't need Humans in this movie, as I feel the Muppet characters could be the focus of the film. But I like Segal and Adams, so I'm hoping for the best with this film.

uuummmm, i dont think you know what the muppets are, considering your post. All muppets movies and muppets shows have been 50% muppets and 50% humans.

I like how they clearly make fun of every romantic comedy in the first 30 seconds of that trailer then go completely in the opposite direction into the m..muppet movie. so good

I'm no fan of Jason Segel, but I am a fan of Amy Adams and the muppets. Want to see it because of them.

Saw this in the theater and was definitely fooled. My immediate reaction was "aren't these two in the muppets together?" and low and behold!

Love it!

Grew up on The Muppets, with Muppets Take Manhattan being one of my favorite films of all time. How can you not laugh when you see Fozie and Kermit and Animal. If this movie delivers, I think they should give Segel a shot at developing a Fraggle Rock movie. Now that would be fucking epic :)

I'm stoked. Can't wait for this.

As for the Extra Tiddy, I'm in my mid-late 20s, so I grew up with the Muppets. But my little sister is 17, and her and her friends couldn't care less about the Muppets. She watched Sesame Street (completely different, I know), but there hasn't been a good Muppets movie in well over a decade, so I blame lack of exposure.

You ruined it..

Great trailer but you shouldn't have ruined it for us, Paul, it would have been a much bigger surprise if you played along and said that this was a trailer for "Green With Envy."

In all honesty I probably wouldn't have watched it if it didn't say it was the Muppet trailer.

Ahh, yes! If there was ever a breath of fresh air, it'd be The Muppets.

I'm officially pumped.

Looks awesome

I can't tell about jokes and such yet, but it really looks like the motion and visuals are phenomenal for a Muppets flick. Thumbs up.

YES !

I just saw this at Apple, thinking I was looking at a random and out of nowhere romcom. But you know, Segel and Adams, I'd give it a shot. But I was unsuspecting and then BAM. Awesomeness. Love it. YES YES YES ! This is shaping up quite well IMO
