The Muppets take on The Twilight Saga

11.15.2011

Can someone give an award to the marketing team behind THE MUPPETS? It's hard to think of a more clever and fun campaign in recent memory. 

They joked about it in their very last parody trailer, and now they have posters to go along with it. Yes, it's time for... The Muppet Saga. 

 

If you've been missing out on all of these excellent trailers, here are links to all of the parodies. The one for THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO is utterly amazing, in particular.

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

The Hangover 2

Green Lantern

And of course, their parody of The Muppets.

Check out the rest of these posters and be excited to see a brand new Muppets movie in theaters.

Are you kidding?

Give an award to parody trailers and posters? I'm pretty sure the last time we saw this onslaught of "parody" (which isn't really parody, it's just copying another poster or trailer) we were spewing bile toward the series of Date, Epic, Superhero, Scary and Disaster Movies.

It's only funny if a humorous twist is added to the original material, not just copying it outright but replacing the characters with felt.

I mean I adore The Muppets and everything, I really do. But I've yet to see

I mean I adore The Muppets and everything, I really do. But I've yet to see anything about this film that helps it to stand on its own as a comedy. I've just seen badly done rip offs of other trailers and cameos from celebreties.

It's The Muppets. It's not Scary Movie. It's a marketing strategy, not the film itself.

Yes, and the marketing strategy is extremely unimaginative is what I'm saying.

The trailer for the film itself heavily relies on celebrity cameos. Where is the original hilarious Muppet comedy I was hoping for?

I hope the movie is at least half as creative as the marketing! Very good!

Zohan: Muppets may look like a children's movie but they really for adults. At least, the previous ones were. And forget Sarah Silverman, she's not the lead.
