THE MUPPETSThey’re back…

It’s been 12 years since the Muppets’ last big-screen feature film (“Muppets from Space,” 1999).

Get ready for the next invasion – THE MUPPETS hits theaters on November 23rd!

On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary (Jason Segel) and Gary’s girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze Muppet Studios and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds.

To stage a telethon and raise the $10 million needed to save the studio, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With a screenplay written by Jason Segel & Nicholas Stoller, the film is directed by James Bobin and features signature celebrity cameos.

But first, before the big event, before the movie or the red carpet world premiere, there’s a parody, and a parody of the parody:

The Final Muppets Parody Trailer–Be afraid.

Did you catch all the parodies? Not me. But YouTube fan, cellopypo, came up with this list, and it looks pretty good to me:

  • First one – Parody of their first parody
  • The Activity – Paranormal Activity
  • Fuss in Boots – Puss in Boots
  • Breaking Prawn – Breaking Dawn (it is already better than the whole twilight saga)

But wait, there’s more! Before the big event, before the movie or the red carpet world premiere, and before the Final Parody, there were the first Muppet parodies:

The Muppets – Green With Envy Teaser – Any Romantic Comedy

The Muppets – Fuzzy Pack Teaser – The Hangover

The Muppets – Being Green Teaser Trailer – Green Lantern

The Pig with the Froggy Tattoo – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Did you say you want MORE Muppets?

STATLER & WALDORF’S GUIDE TO GOING TO THE MOVIES

 

SW_243ko_RWith Disney’s “The Muppets” coming out in theaters soon, Statler and Waldorf offer unsolicited advice and a whole lot of laughs about what to watch for at the theater.

WALDORF: …one that doesn’t face the screen!

WALDORF: If you arrive late for your movie, stick around…

STATLER: …they’ll be releasing a sequel soon!

STATLER: Never get a bucket of popcorn that’s larger than your car.

WALDORF: Don’t talk on your cell phone during the movie….

STATLER: …it might wake us up!

WALDORF: If you have to explain everything in the movie to the person you’re sitting next

to…

STATLER: …welcome to my world.

WALDORF: Sometimes the movie is not out of focus—you are.

STATLER: Don’t talk back to the movie…

WALDORF: …that’s our job!

 

WALDORF: If you don’t have anything nice to say about a movie…

STATLER: …sit next to us!

STATLER: Spoiler Alert—The Muppets are in Disney’s “The Muppets.”
