The Muppets Poke Fun at ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn’ with Posters

Tj Weaver November 16, 2011 1

When you’ve been mocked by the muppets, lets just say that it’s a way for us all to get a little laugh in. Disney Pictures released three new posters for the upcoming Muppets film, and just like previous Muppet posters and trailers, this time our fuzzy friends take on the love triangle to bore all love triangles — Twilight.

The posters feature Miss Piggy as Bella Swine, Kermit the Frog as Vamphibian, and Rowlf the Dog as WereRowlf. I must say, whoever comes up with the promotion material for The Muppets is pure genius. Take a look at the posters below, and let us know if you think they’re better than the actual posters used for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1.

Synopsis:

On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary (Jason Segel) and Gary’s girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage a telethon and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate.

Directed by James Bobin, The Muppets slam into theaters November 23rd, 2011.

      There is a new trend in Hollywood to split book adaptations into two parts. It made sense with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, because that was a long novel with a many elements that were interlinked and it needed to be told in two parts, but “Breaking Dawn Part 1″ was trying to stretch the material to fit the allocated time. There are numerous montages, such as the honeymoon, which could have easily been shortened to make a single, stronger movie. The film had very little plot too; it’s basically about a complicated pregnancy that just happened to feature vampires and werewolves.
