On the heels of the 8-minute extended trailer for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (released yesterday), comes The Girl with the Froggy Tattoo, a another great parody teaser for The Muppets. The marketing for The Muppets has proven to be worth the effort, time and money, since it is all everyone seems to be talking about. The new teaser might not offer a ton of new footage, but it is by far the most entertaining of the bunch.
Here is the Synopsis for the film:
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theatre, 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 secret, signature, celebrity cameos, “The Muppets” hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.
