"The Muppets" Second Official Movie Trailer

    I thought the first trailer was really bad. This trailer is wonderful and has restored my hope that this will be a great movie - now I can't wait to see it! I hope the music is outstanding - that was one of the reasons the first Muppet Movie is a true classic.

    I don't think they're trying to go for the more extreme realism of MTM so much as they're going for the "this is a movie... this is clearly a movie" feel of GMC. TMM had moments that seemed realistic, but then it had that odd Bullwinkle-ish stuff about the "fork in the road" and the giant creme pie billboards. To me, the "travel by map" segment seems to scream that. It's mocking an overused trope (showing a montage with a map connecting dots from points) for one thing.

    Personally, I don't care if it has that old Muppet feel or not... I care as long as they don't do another theme movie. GAH!

    Ha, ok yeah youre right TMM had some bizarre moments. But then you have the realism of even the church scenes. TMTM was definitely more rooted in muted reality, which I like. Man even in the 90's I HATED the classic retelling stuff.

    The 90's retelling stuff ONLY worked because they were well written. I like MCC, but it lacks that Muppet feel. MTI fared much better.... only reason I liked MFS better than those (at least on a certain level) was that they had the Muppets playing themselves more or less.

    This movie's as classic as the Muppets NOT retelling a classic story can get for me.

    And Scooter's in it.

    Gotta say... I'm pretty impressed. The only complaint I have is that I really don't have any complaints. :p

    When Walter "attacks" the TV screen, is that an old clip from The Muppet Show?

    Nope.
     
  13. I like this trailer MUCH more than the first one. This one has bits and pieces that piqued my interest.

    Spoiler alert would have been nice.

    I do agree with you about the realism...kinda. Except that the Muppets have always had a certain kind of quirky, unrealistic edge to them in that most of their acts would never fit on a theater stage! They've occasionally done sight-gags like the map one, and its good for a laugh. "Oh they're travelling by map...wait, huh, they actually just drove under the sea? *amused*" (Kinda like the 80s Montage :p)

    I agree, ML, do just be careful with spoilers. some of us are tiptoeing around the spoiler vs. non-spoiler edges of the forum/news and stuff like that can be a little annoying. :)

    Ok, Ok...trailer 2 may have got my 16 year old step son turned around! He's just said "that look o'right" which in teenage speak is a positive thing! ! He also said his mates are already going to see it when it comes out (IN FEBRUARY!!! :( ), so thats one more person who may be convinced! I'm not having a great deal of luck with my work colleagues, but I ain't done yet!
