'The Muppets' Trailer Debuts In Theaters...But Not On The Net?
This weekend when audiences attended screenings of Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger tides they were treated to the teaser trailer for "The Muppets." The all new entry into the legendary Muppets film series is an update with a considerable amount of talent behind it. Judd Apatow's buddy Jason Segel co-wrote the script, and is starring along side Amy Adams. James Bobin co-creator and director of HBO's Flight Of The Conchords. Speaking of which, Flight Of The Conchords(Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement) have written a lot of music for the film.
Typically, when a trailer as anticipated as this one is attached to a film it generally hits the internet the day of release or before. However, The Muppets trailer can only be found in theaters, at least for the weekend. The biggest reason for this? It actually plays better in the theater. I can't exactly say why without giving away a key component of the trailer but suffice to say, I have been following this film since it was a whisper, and the trailer totally surprised me. A really fun trailer, a great appetizer before Pirates. Keep it tune here, we will have The Muppets trailer as soon as it is released.
