The post New Muppet Film Has New Muppet Title appeared first on Screen Junkies.

The new Muppet film, known heretofore as as The Muppets…Again! will now be known as The Muppets Most Wanted, giving the series an element of danger that will undoubtedly have Muppet enthusiasts up in arms.

Because that’s what diehard Muppet fans do. They complain about things like this.

The film will be set in Europe and should not under any circumstances be confused with Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel, which is also set in Europe. That is where the similarities stop.

You like your commentary cooked? Too bad, This is RAW commentary, and we hold nothing sacred. Not The Muppets, not Michael Caine, not NUTHIN’. Here, “Michael Caine” revisits his time on set during the filming of A Muppet Christmas Carol, and it wasn’t quite as effervescent and fun as you’d think it was.

The Muppets commentary those fat cats didn’t want you to see…

Plan Your Pee Breaks Now: 7 Boring 2012 Oscar Moments To Avoid http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/plan-your-pee-breaks-now-7-boring-2012-oscar-moments-to-avoid/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/plan-your-pee-breaks-now-7-boring-2012-oscar-moments-to-avoid/#comments Wed, 22 Feb 2012 17:13:43 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=245798 It's important to stretch your legs.

The post Plan Your Pee Breaks Now: 7 Boring 2012 Oscar Moments To Avoid appeared first on Screen Junkies.

May as well face it now. Sunday’s presentation of the Academy Awards will not live up to your expectations. Every year, the Monday morning following the show is ruled by unsatisfied viewers picking it apart and pointing out all the faults. It’s terrible… that we wait that long. Why not pick the show apart in advance? We already know the parts that are boring, and you’re just torturing yourself by sitting through them.

So, here’s our handy guide to when you can leave the couch this Sunday without missing anything that may interest you. If you’re going to waste your time, you might as well waste it doing something awesome.

The Red Carpet

Unless you’re hungover or a live-blogger (pretty much go hand-in-hand) there’s no reason to watch the Oscars red carpet pre-show. It’s never interesting and who cares who is wearing whom? We’re not our mothers, wives, or girlfriends so there’s no usable information to be gleaned from this. At best we’ll be able to get a look at an A-list actress looking pretty hot. But that’s only good if you’re in the comfort of your own home. It’s generally frowned upon to fap openly at Oscar parties which isn’t fair considering Hollywood will be tossing itself off the entire night.

Cirque du Soleil

It seems like every year, producers of the show try to shoehorn feats of gymnastic bendiness into the already too long award show. I see no benefit to having Cirque du Soleil there on Oscar night. Watching people with their genitalia smooshed uncomfortably into zebra-striped unitards twist while they around upside down doesn’t help me understand The Help on any deeper level. If the show is aiming to be entertaining, they should hire a real circus. One with elephants and clowns who spray winners with seltzer if their acceptance speeches go long.

2011 was another great year for Internet memes. Anonymous contributors came together to create some of the weirdest and wittiest images that the mind can conjure. Along the way, they re-appropriated images and videos of celebrities and famous characters to point out absurdities or to just be plain mean. We can endorse that.

Fans of acerbic musical comedy were kicked in the nuts when Flight of the Conchords made the decision to not continue their HBO series. It’s time to stop icing our janglies.

Bret McKenzie has announced a film is in the works. “We’re going to try and do a movie. We just need a story.”

No, you don’t. The Transformers franchise is HUGE.

Given the success on The Muppets (on which McKenzie served as music supervisor), this is likely to become a priority project. All they need is the story, which should totally involve puppets. (via Vulture)

The New ‘Muppets’ Film Does NOT Have The Frank Oz Seal Of Approval http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-new-muppets-film-does-not-have-the-frank-oz-seal-of-approval/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-new-muppets-film-does-not-have-the-frank-oz-seal-of-approval/#comments Fri, 21 Oct 2011 12:59:08 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=233254 So Jason Segel is picking up Frank Oz's Muppet scraps. Yeah, that sounds about right.

The post The New ‘Muppets’ Film Does NOT Have The Frank Oz Seal Of Approval appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
With The Muppets in the on-deck circle (coming November 23), and the dregs of the fall season making it difficult to fill an ever-more-frequent news cycle, the media has recently grabbed on to the story of whether or not the new Muppet film will satisfy purists. You know, those Muppet purists that seem to be everywhere, haunting us about Kermit’s ACTUAL timbre and Miss Piggy’s shoe size.

While most of these people are just embittered weirdos, perhaps the one “Muppet purist” with a legit gripe is Frank Oz, the man who created Fozzie Bear and Miss Piggy. He said in an interview with Metro that he passed on the project because he felt the script strayed a little too far from who he thought the Muppets were.

He offers, “‘I wasn’t happy with the script. I don’t think they respected the characters. But I don’t want to go on about it like a sourpuss and hurt the movie.”

Well, I can understand why a man so integral to their creation and existence can be a little nonplussed by the new take on the gang, but as for everyone else, just eat your popcorn and watch the damn puppets. They’re not THAT important to you.

Seriously. They’re not.

Warp-Speed: 6 Spaceships Faster Than The Speed Of Light http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/warp-speed-6-spaceships-faster-than-the-speed-of-light/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/warp-speed-6-spaceships-faster-than-the-speed-of-light/#comments Fri, 23 Sep 2011 20:59:47 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=229817 Stupid Light! You're not so fast after all!

The post Warp-Speed: 6 Spaceships Faster Than The Speed Of Light appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
Scientists have discovered new information that makes Albert Einstein look like a real asshole. His theory of relativity introduced the rule that nothing can trave faster than the speed of light, and that belief has long been held as a pillar of psychics. However, European scientists report that they’ve clocked a neutrino traveling faster than 186,282 miles per second. Way to go, Einstein.

The scientists have checked and rechecked their experiment to make sure nothing had gone wrong, but so far everything seems to have been in order. Now other members of the scientific community are testing their findings. If this is true, perhaps someday we’ll all have some sweet spaceships like the ones on this list.

Max – Flight of the Navigator

Max is likely to be the sketchiest ship on this list. First of all, it’s voiced be Paul Reubens. That may not seem so bad, but you should also keep in mind that the ship traveled 560 light years to abduct a young boy and take him for a joy ride through outer space. Also, it’s unmarked.

Th Battlestar GalacticaBattlestar Galactica

Though a bit of a clunker, the Galactica is capable of light-speed travel. However, there are drawbacks. For instance, when escorting refugees, she must limit her speed to that of the fleet’s slowest ship. And for a short while, all jumps to light-speed were done so blind, meaning that the crew could not predict where they would arrive after their jumps. It’s like getting hammered and falling asleep in a taxi.

Weirdos’ Ship – Muppets From Space

Not only is this ship capable of traveling faster than the speed of light, but its inhabitants can also communicate via bowls of cereals and sandwiches. Never saw Spock pull anything like that off.

The bromance between OK Go and the Muppets continues. This time in the form of a music video that is a pretty thorough marriage of the Muppets‘ sense of humor and the band’s inventive viral videos. The remix of The Muppet Show Theme was recorded for Jason Segel‘s Muppet Movie and appears as the first single from the MuppetsGreen Album.

As expected, it’s a pretty impressive effort that features many of the Muppets and their distinctive traits. Think of all the hours spent with hands up the talent. Did Hype Williams direct this?

Robert Downey Jr. dropped the casting news during a press interview for Due Date. That Downey. He's incorrigable. Galifianakis would join Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Rashida Jones, and Chris Cooper, who have all already been cast. The new film, directed by James Bobin, will "take place within a showbiz setting and follow the Muppets as they try to save their studio from a greedy oil baron (Cooper) who wants to dig for oil. Segel is set to play the lead who reunites the Muppets for one last show to save the studio; Adams is his girlfriend, while Jones will play an ABC executive." No word yet on what Galifianakis would play. Maybe a film director. It's time he put that beard to good use. (ThePlaylist)

Do you like Muppet movies? Do you like murder movies? Or perhaps you've always wanted to murder a Muppet? Well, in any case, it looks like you're in luck. Lionsgate has signed on to Happytime Murders, a murder-mystery featuring Muppets (or something very similar) created by the Jim Henson Company. Happytime grounds us in a world where humans and puppets live side by side, albeit with the puppets as second-class citizens. The furry cast of once-popular kids’ show The Happytime Gang are being picked off one by one, and the only ones who can figure out who’s behind the deaths is a drunken, washed-up private eye puppet and his former LAPD partner, a human being. That sounds a lot like Chinatown mixed with Who Framed Roger Rabbit. That is to say, it sounds like the greatest story in all of human history. Oh, and if you answered "yes" to wanting to kill a Muppet, rot it hell. I love those furry bastards more than my own family. (Empire Online)

Jason Segel and the team involved with the next Muppet movie recently met with the bigwigs at Pixar to discuss ways to make your head explode. Some of the members of the so-called "Pixar Brain Trust" -- filmmakers John Lasseter, Brad Bird, Pete Docter, Andrew Stanton, Michael Arndt, Bob Peterson and president Ed Catmull -- were there for the consultations. Docter is a particularly avid Muppets fan, so he almost certainly was one of the attendees. On the Disney side, Muppets director James Bobin and producers David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman were likely in the room along with Segel. While plot details are hard to come by, as long as they don't have Kermit and Fozzie experimenting with homosexuality and adopting African children, I'll pay to see it twice. And even if they did go that route, with this kind of talent behind the film, it's hard to imagine how it could end up sucking. In fact, I haven't been this excited about a film's prospects since I first heard that an unfettered George Lucas was working on a little film called Phantom Menace. (THR)
