Muppets R Us…

What do you want from your Muppet movies? Personally, I want Amy Adams, lots of singing and dancing, Kermit the frog being Kermit the frog, and massive budget-blowing explosions. Which – luckily – is exactly what we get in this first teaser trailer for the new Muppets movie.

Kudos to the trailer mechanics who came up with the crazy-cool concept behind it. The first 50 seconds set up what looks like a drearily predictable rom-com (dubbed Green With Envy) about Amy Adams’ doomed romance with loveable oaf Jason Segel. Then POW, Kermie and Miss Piggy are listed as co-stars. We all love a little wrong-footing in the name of fun, and this tease pulls it off perfectly.

But stop reading these words. Watch the trailer below instead and get that warm fuzzy feeling in your belly that can only come about from watching puppets bounce around on screen while Amy Adams puts her back into numerous musical numbers…
