Muppets

The Muppets Most Wanted promotional campaign has been as delightful as expected from the franchise, though with these new parody posters, The Muppets have upped their game yet again. Each poster parody's a famous action movie...
Every time Kermit the frog dances with a gold hat and cane, my heart grows three sizes. After watching the music video for the first song from Muppets Most Wanted entitled "Sequel Song," my heart nearly burst out of my ...
The Muppets have had a few Christmas specials over the years: It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie, A Muppet Family Christmas, and even the awful Artpop commercial, Lady Gaga & The Muppets Holiday Spectacular. But the...
This second trailer for Muppets Most Wanted shows off a lot more than the teaser released a few months back. We get a story (an "Evilen Froggen" named Constantine frames Kermit and takes his place), more celebrity cameos (Da...


Muppets Most Wanted (formerly The Muppets...Again!) is one of the few sequels I'm happy they're making. The first Muppets was a hilarious trip down memory lane, and Muppets Most Wanted looks to continue that judging by that f...
Some new news has surfaced about a scene in The Muppets...Again! During an episode of BBC's The Film Programme, production designer Eve Stewart -- fresh from her BAFTA Film Award win for Les Miserables -- revealed what she's ...
It looks like The Muppets' next globe trotting adventure finally has an official title. Brace yourselves. It's The Muppets...Again! Yeah, I didn't make that up, though I gladly would have if Disney paid me instead of who...
For a while Cristoph Waltz was in talks to star in The Muppets 2, a Europe-set sequel that starts shooting early next year. Unfortunately it looks like Waltz had to decline because of his schedule. I assume this has something...
Last years The Muppets seemed to be a surprise success for Disney, though I'm not sure why they didn't expect it, because anyone who's seen the movie can tell you it's fantastic. Anywho, the studio got the ball rolling o...
The Muppets was a good nostalgia trip that left lots of people longing for a follow-up. There's finally some casting news on The Muppets 2. Christoph Waltz is currently in talks for a starring role in the film. If he takes th...
A while back this birdy dropped some concept art for The Happytime Murders, a noir film done with puppets from the Henson people. No word what happened to the source, but I figure the bird's singing them canary tunes in a con...
Sesame Street: The Movie is a thing that's happening through 20th Century Fox. The show's longtime writer Joey Mazzarino will be writing the film's script. Obviously no word on story, and Fox has yet to comment on the project...
The upcoming film adaptation of Jim Henson's belovedly weird, musical puppet-a-ganza Fraggle Rock has now got some writers attached to it. Jim Byrkit and Alex Manugian, who both worked on Rango, are signed on to write the Fra...
Got back from the city and there was an email about some new Henson project called The Happytime Murders. It's a proposed noir picture done with puppets. Think Roger Rabbit, but plush instead of paint. It looked Dillinger, li...
Hello, folks! Liberal media here. Have you seen The Muppets yet? I thought it was pretty good. My main complaint? Not nearly enough messages to children that capitalism and rich people are evil. There's a time and place for ...
I love old porn, and apparently the Muppets do, too. The super catchy "Mahna Mahna" that I always thought was an original song is actually from the 1968 Italian film Sweden: Hell and Heaven. The movie was portrayed as a docu...
Since posting part one of my interview with LOOK Effects Supervisor Max Ivins, I was able to see his handiwork in the The Muppets for myself, and I must say that the film is amazing. I haven't laughed that hard that consisten...
The Muppets did well over the holiday weekend, both a critical darling and a financial success. Because of the film, NBC is currently developing a new show with muppets with Jim Henson Studios. It's not th...
There are two types of interviewees: ones that need to be poked and prodded in order to say anything meaningful, and ones who will continue talking until you unintentionally cut them off during a pause. Max Ivins, Supervisor ...
So, I'm really, really sorry for this episode. We were two people shy, and it's just unfocused and bizarre as hell. We talk about movies really briefly, but we mostly talk about Amish hate crimes and bulls**t. Anyway, I hope ...
The Muppets aren't often in the public eye anymore. Disney hasn't been pushing them very heavily, and their one theme park attraction is shoved off in the corner of California Adventures- you know, the one nobody visits. Kids...
I think I've made it very clear that I am not a fan of CGI. Films like Rise of the Planet of the Apes are far less effective due to their reliance on CG characters. Fortunately, the men and women behind The Muppets ...
