The Muppets Parody The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo With New Trailer And Poster
David Fincher's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is back on our brains thanks to last night's surprise trailer reveal, and in a bit of good timing that could only have been intentional, Disney has a new trailer for The Muppets that's a direct, hilarious parody of the first Dragon Tattoo teaser trailer. I don't know how the Muppets are the only people on this earth who can do decent parody anymore, but I suppose that's the secret to their success. Check out the trailer, along with a new teaser poster to go with it, below:
While it's a little disturbing to imagine Kermit and Miss Piggy in the kind of provocative pose that Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara struck in the actual Dragon Tattoo poster, it's also hilarious. I don't think the actual Muppets movie involves any parody or in-jokes about current movies in release, but the marketing campaign has managed to get everybody talking while showing off the bare minimum of footage from the film. It's a great way to remind everyone of the sharp Muppets sense of humor while also keeping the movie relatively under wraps. Though, lucky for us, it won't be under wraps a whole lot longer-- the movie finally comes out in just over two months, on November 23.
