"The Muppets" UK Movie Promotions

    With the movie opening in the UK on Feb 10th (speaking i'd imagine on behalf of all Brit muppet fans..it's been agonising, avoiding spoilers, resisting temptation to watch clips etc..) there's bound to be several Muppets movie tie-ins and promotions and competitions as there always is, particularly with Disney movies, so I thought perhaps we should have one thread for all of those where people can find out what's going on, and hopefully not miss out on anything.

    We already seen the Orange mobile network Ad which has been posted in various places, but here's what i've found so far.

    http://www.milkmatters.co.uk/#/stickers/ LOVE THIS - give your milk carton a Muppet makeover....whatever next ! :)

    There's the EMPIRE VUE CINEMA promotional Muppet cup and Toppers , check the site for

    http://www.disneymovierewards.co.uk/promotions/competitions - Here's a competition to win tickets to an Exclusive Screening...on Sunday Jan 15th! So hurry to be in with a chance to win it. (AND DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY MORE DETAILS ON THIS SCREENING ??)

    The BFI London Screening on 27th Jan , keep checking back for available tickets

    The Glasgow Youth Film Festival Competition to see the MUPPETS

    I'm sure there'll be many more so please add them as you find them to keep everybody up to speed with what's going on surrounding the release of the movie.
    It's looking unlikely that there'll be a premiere over here unfortunately, but hopefully that won't stop them coming over here to promote so if you here about any television appearances etc..don't forget to let us know! :)

    Not long to go now...it's almost time time to play the music...almost time to light the lights..just wish they'd hurry up and raise that curtain!! :)

    Im going on the 15th and 27th, so I'll write a rundown of how it goes! I think the 15th will be THE screening (premiere?) of the movie in England.

    I don't really understand why it opens so late there. They don't have to dubb it.
    Someone said to me that they have to change the names becuase Lew means a whole diffrent thing there

    Australia has released a Kermit backpack clip buddie and sipper cup as it's cinema promotion.See my post in the merchandise section.

    No, i'm sure they wouldn't change that much, it's just down to scheduling and based on what other movies they have out before hand and so they can spend the suitable amount of time promoting it, so it's a staggered campaign rather than one global campaign. But the awareness has been amazing, every where you turn the Muppets are there , and I love it :)

    I can understand changing Lew if his name was 'LEWD' but it's not too close to that, unless it has another meaning somewhere else ?

    I'm not sure if anyone else has mentioned this on MC yet, but here in the UK the Muppets are guest editors for February's (out now) 'Total Film' magazine. www.totalfilm.com/features/total-film-magazine-issue-189/the-muppets

    I picked up a copy yesterday in the Co-Op. There isn't tons about The Muppets, but it's worth a read. My favorite bit is Miss Piggy's list of films she loves and hates! :)

    Here's the article from this months TOTAL FILM, hope i'm not breaking any rules posting this, if someone could let me know if I am, i'd appreciate that. Of course it's always best to have the actual magazine, so be sure to check it out!

    I have these too. Hoping more mags will be released soon as empire stated that a full review will be in the next issue!

    When will the Feb 2012 issue of Empire magazine be released? I am asking because they sell empire magazine in the US at booksamillion and would like to pick-up a copy.

    The February issue is the current issue, which has been out for a couple of weeks now.
    It has an amazing Muppet special, so much in fact they should've put them on the front cover, it's well worth getting.
    The March issue will have the review for the movie.

    I'll scan and post the pics soon..but certainly pick up a copy! :)

    What about the total film magazine? Is that worth getting? I can buy this from the online website
  13. markit

    markit Well-Known Member

    Well the article above is about all they have on the Muppets, no review until next months issue, but they have a couple of other small bits as Kermit is 'guest editor'

    Up to you. I'd say yes, but i'm a subscriber and love the magazine.

    Ordered free Muppet stickers from Cravendale. Just wondering, I got an e-mail from Cravendale with "Your stickers are on their way!" as the subject but the e-mail is blank! - does this happen to anyone else?

    markit Well-Known Member

    I don't think they're ready for sending out the downloads yet, said coming soon last I checked, and as for the stickers..I presume they're an actual sticker set rather than print out. I don't know if they ship internationally, I'd imagine UK only as it's a UK based company. Hope that helps.

    markit Well-Known Member

    I take that back...BEAKER is now available to Download as a printable set :)

    It's gonna run over the next 18 days...ok i'm gonna stop writing so much about a Milk bottle sticker set! ;)

  19. markit

    markit Well-Known Member
