"The Muppets" Official Movie Trailer

    I dunno... I like Penguins and all, but no one has improved on Muppet Penguins.
    Other than Robin Williams, the thing didn't appeal to me.
    Gah! I Know! How come we were literally bombarded by crappy toys from F-grade studio movies like Planet 51, but there was nothing from a film who's toys with have the potential to have the greatest sculpts in history. I LOVED the look, I loved the tone, and I especially love how they swore in a PG movie! I hate that PG movies look like souped up G movies. Rango is exactly what I thought a PG movie should be. Violence, some adult humor, and mild cussing. And really... I can't even say how much I loved it. My favorite animated movie of the year so far. I hope the thing explodes on DVD and we get some nice merchandising. Still, I wish I could have found a BK that actually had the toy OF Rango.

    I saw one interview where Amy saud she even performed characters in scenes she appeared in. I assumed she meant she performed characters in shots where she didn't appear on screen. It didn't occure to me that they'd actually perform while appearing on-screen. Though I doubt Jason Segel performed the rat that sits on his hand in the office scene.

    The kinds of thoughts I have when I lack sleep:

    1. I smell the use of the "Just One Person" song.
    2. Okay, this is from Bein' Green or whatever the Green Lantern one was, but what if it's Jim's voice when Kermit is in the O, and that is the real reason Kermit in that trailer says something was wrong with his throat?
    3. Jason and Amy's probably going to use songs from GMC. From the "romantic" scenes we've seen among the different trailers, it looks like Jason gets in a tux, probably references Stepping Out with a Star (is that the title?), and fantasizes dancing with Amy with references to The Moment It Happens (again, don't know if that's the title).

    The only way I'd bother seeing a Transformers movie is if somehow someone miraculously gets them to re-release the original animated one in theaters. Michael Bay's suckiness is one thing, but you got a scene where an Eric Idle voiced Transformer dances to Weird Al music. I mean, that scene has so much geeky nerdy epicness it needs to win a special geek Oscar or something.

    that didnt really answer anything and i wasnt looking for a transformers debate about who likes it and who doesn't(Personally i like it),

    i was just saying that this official Muppets trailer played before the movie...which i didn't see coming but was a delightful surprise nonetheless

    Dr Tooth reminds me of me sometimes, where someone will say a trigger word and I'll go off on this wall o' text long verbose scathing polemic...then wonder.."wait, what was the question again?" Dr tooth wouldnt be drtooth without that!

    Now TF3 actually has gotten surprising good reviews, for what its worth. And its spose to be the best live action 3d looking film yet. So I'll see it. And yay on the audience digging the muppet trailer! *whew*

    Hey! If this was made for the explosion crazy Transformers movie, I think I understand the electric fence scene... though, you'd think that there's a lot of Crazy Harry footage they could have used... :halo:

    Still... The question is, why did they use the Green with Envy trailer before the 2-D Cars 2 showings instead of the new one? Money was certainly one reason I had to see it in that format, but I also wanted to check out if the trailer was shown or not for ll of you who wouldn't have seen it. Again, I find Green with Envy a stronger trailer with less confusing bits of plot in it, but the revealed it just before Cars was to premiere.

    Maybe it was an oversight or something.

    I saw Cars 2 in 2D the other day and it included the full length trailer, not Green With Envy. It got a great response from kids and adults alike... so not all theaters are showing Green with Envy. It's a theater thing, not a Disney thing I think.

    Prawnie, get yourself online. If there's time to lean, there's time to clean...wait...no, not that.

    Must be theaters. Or just the reel they got. I dunno. Still, it was great to see that trailer after wanting to gouge my eyes out from CGI penguin ugliness. The room wasn't exactly packed, but Kermit's appearance seemed to get some sort of reaction from the crowd. Much better than the other two movie trailers (Puss in Boots/ Happy Feet 2).

    I am not the worlds greatest movie goer (One movie a year if I can pep-talk myself enough) but as far as I can tell, this movie looks like it'll be at the very least a solid watch. There may be disappointments here and there, but overall, it's shaping up to be a good movie.

    Miss Piggy finally karate-chopping someone again, the rainbow connection song, the muppet theme song, a Kermit pep-talk, the Swedish Chef, Rowlf on the Piano, Scooter finally appearing after years of ignored... It really looks like this will be fun :D

    Guys, I did not imagine this, did I?

    Wasn't there a clip in one of the four trailers (Green with Envy, Fuzzy Pack, Being Green/Green Lantern parody, and the 'official' one that's running in front of Cars 2) where you saw several chickens dusting the seats of the Muppet Theatre like living feather dusters?
    I even grabbed a still of that shot at one point!


    Now, I can't find the shot in any of the clips. I just watched all four trailers again trying to locate it, and I'm coming up completely dry, and it's driving me crazy.

    If you can confirm it in a specific clip, please provide a link to the one you're watching, and maybe a time code of when it occurs.

    It's in the version that was posted to start this thread.

    I'm guessing that was an unofficial version, which seems likely given the fact that it came out before the one on MuppetsStudio. (It's replaced by "This Thanksgiving" in the official release.)

    Thanks, Terri! That was making me bonkers!
