    Totally takes away the irreverence of the title, but that was going to go over everyone's heads anyway. This new title is far more marketable.

    I thought the original title sounded rather exasperated...as in, "Oh no, it's the Muppets AGAIN." I like this one much better. And it seems to be a better fit for the plot elements we've heard so far.

    Count me among those who prefer MUPPETS MOST WANTED over THE MUPPETS... AGAIN.

    LOVE the title!!! It kinda has a little catch to it that makes it so much more interesting...The Muppets Again just kinda sounded like Disney got bored and took off their creative caps

    I think I like this title better! Makes it sound more exciting, if you ask me. I hated waiting the three second pause between the Muppets and Again.

    It's funny cuz that's the point. The ...Again in the title was a clear and obvious tongue in cheek reference to this being a sequel, not to mention all the other movies the Muppets have made. However that joke is a little too inside and self referential to the point of sounding like a parody film. Something more in tune with a Naked Gun type franchise. Plus, that kind of extremely clever snarkiness would drive the general movie going public away. It's the same reason I question Muppets Cheapest Movie. The "Cheapest" in the title says "we're too dang clever for our own good."

    A bit banal, yes... but Muppets Most Wanted is much more marketable and easier to relate to. And let's just all be glad that, even if they went with the original title, they at least didn't make this "The Muppets 2."

    Personally, I don't care what they call it, the news of another muppet movie is enough for me.

    However, if I had to choose between either title, I'd go with "The Muppets...Again!" because it's better than "The Muppets 2" and because I think it's kinda funny, but that's just me.

    I feel like there should be some punctuation mark in the title now. Like Muppets: Most Wanted.

    Oh thank GOODNESS.
    It's not a great name, and the joke of "...Again" is clever out of the context of it actually being a film title--But I'm just so glad it's not called "The Muppets......

    Especially since I wasn't a huge fan of "The Muppets.....

    .....the first one." :shifty:
    Yeah, wow that's much snappier and more accurate actually. It shows that it's a sequel to "The Muppets" clearer and that they're on the most wanted list not...hosting a list of their personal enemies. Which would be kinda hilarious, but that's beside the point.

    I'm incredibly glad they changed it. "The Muppets...Again" just seemed a like a title that was trying too hard to be irreverent to the point of coming off as awkward instead of funny.

    Nice title, very snappy! Yeah the "Muppets...Again" joke isn't quite as immediately obvious.

    You know it actually is very fitting for a few reasons:
    1. It fits in with Constantine's 'most wanted' status.
    2. It fits with the other plot line of the Muppets being the 'most wanted' variety act in the world, hence the world tour.
    3. It works for us, because info about the movie is the 'most wanted' thing around the MC parts.
    Whomever created the title knew what was doing down.
