Admit it, you know it’s true. You really can’t go wrong with the Muppets and especially a new Muppet movie. Back to the original The Muppet Movie in 1979, which included an all-star human cast of cameos along with the main Muppet players, to the 2011 rejuvenation of the Muppets on the big screen in The Muppets, the Muppets are all-around good fun. In 2014 the next Muppet film will be released, Muppets Most Wanted, and “sequel” is the emphasis of this first trailer for the movie just released this past week.
And if you love the original The Muppet Movie as much as we do (it scored #3 on my all-time best fantasy movie list we discussed here at borg.com last year), then you’ll not want to miss your chance to get the pre-release discount of more than eight dollars for The Muppet Movie: The Nearly 35th Anniversary Edition at Amazon.com. But act fast since the release date is August 13, 2013, so you have a day to get your order in.
If you don’t want to revisit the classic original for the great Muppet players courtesy of Jim Henson and Frank Oz, see it again for the biggest production of great stars of the day since It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, including Steve Martin, Orson Welles, Richard Pryor, Milton Berle, Telly Savalas, Dom DeLuise, Cloris Leachman, James Coburn, Mel Brooks, Carol Kane, Madeline Kahn, Edgar Bergen, Bob Hope, Elliot Gould, Charles Durning, James Frawley, and Paul Williams.
But first, check out the new, first trailer for Muppets Most Wanted:
Muppets Most Wanted has an interesting human cast, too, with Salma Hayek, Tina Fey, and Ricky Gervais, and a big list of actors who have all played tough guys: The Avengers’ Tom Hiddleston, twice Oscar winner Christoph Waltz, Danny Trejo, Ray Liotta, and Frank Langella.
Are you a man, or are you a Muppet? Muppets Most Wanted hits theaters March 21, 2014.
