I'm just really glad that our work on "The Laramie Project" ends the day before this comes out, otherwise I would do bad things to our directors...
I suppose those new spots don't reveal anymore returning minor characters. Right?The new commercials keep-a-comin'.
At least two new tv spots debuted today. One of them i only caught the tail end of so details on it will have to be forthcoming. But the other is a one-minute spot which, even though there are a few shots in it we haven't seen yet, isn't too bad of a "spoiler" ad since the bulk of it is interview clips of The Muppets (in the director chairs we've seen in some other promos) titled "Working With The Muppets"...there's soundbites from Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, Floyd and Animal. Animal pretty much steals the show throughout the entire trailer.
Oddly enough, for a new ad, it had the "old" version of the arches shot in it (with the white background and the disproportionately small Beaker)
I'm wondering... is the empty archway a tactic to hide special characters OR (more likely to me) was it just unfinished footage that was just available at the time of the trailer, and they just stuck with that footage because it was easily available? I swear I saw some trailer of some movie with an unfinished scene in it before...If so, I guess that just renews my gut feeling that they really are trying really hard to withhold as many surprises as possible until the film hits the theaters.
Somebody on the Tough Pigs forum said that after reading the junior novelization the empty arches make more sense, though I read the whole thing and didn't notice anything that made it make sense. But we only have a month and a week to go!I'm wondering... is the empty archway a tactic to hide special characters OR (more likely to me) was it just unfinished footage that was just available at the time of the trailer, and they just stuck with that footage because it was easily available?

I didn't get that yet. maybe it takes a while for it to migrate eastward? I did see a shrinkwrapped back of the bus Puss in Boots come out a few weeks ago. I'd hope to see Kermit and Piggy and Gonzo on the back of one soon.Muppet Domination Has Begun!!
All the taxi cab sign tops and bus shelter photos are Muppetized in SF!! Walking home from my job at 3 AM on Friday night was made bearable from all the close-cropped Muppet eyes peeping at me from passing cabs! I this movie promotion.
