'Muppets' trailer will make you 'Green With Envy'

Don't be fooled by that movie preview for the upcoming romance "Green With Envy"—it's actually a trailer for the much-anticipated "The Muppets."

The trailer, which made its debut in theaters over the weekend, kicks off by telling the love story of Mary and Gary (Amy Adams and Jason Segal), a sweet, small-town couple who head to Hollywood with dreams of making it big. Though they hope to go the distance, they find their relationship challenged when Gary forgets their anniversary.

Cue a sappy love song and a montage of the couple pining for each other, laughing and dancing before the narrator announces the film's cast: "Jason Segal. Amy Adams… Kermit the Frog?"

"Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait, wait, wait—stop!" says Segal. "Are there Muppets in this movie?"

You bet! The rest of the trailer shows Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo and the rest of Jim Henson's gang getting up to their usual high jinks and ends with the warning, "Get Ready for Muppet Domination."

Check out the trailer now and prepare yourself for "The Muppets," which arrives in theaters at Thanksgiving.

    I hope after all these years they finally put Kermit The Frog and Miss Piggy together for good. The young kids will probably like it. Yeah I like Cookie Monster too. But my favorite it Animal. Hes so cute with his drums and all.

    I must see this movie. Not because it looks good but because while I'm old enough to have seen all the muppet movies in the theatre, I never have. And I doubt another one will follow this...

      If the authors of there comments are what passes for "adults", then I think I'd rather go watch some Pokemon with toons.
