Salve

You may have heard that "Green Lantern" is a disaster. You have heard correctly - and will hear more soon enough.

This makes it a little better:

Awww, too bad. It's like the Spill crew said, the prospect of three good superhero movies in a row was too good to be true. Looking forward to the review!

MajorRed53 said...

Yes! Statler and Waldorf are in this movie!

The Muppets movie officially has the best movie marketing campaign of the past decade.

Adam said...

Dangit. I said I'd wait until the Muppets were out on video to see it, but they are trying their darndest to get my butt in the theater. I may have to reward such good behavior.

Just Gavin said...

Well that trailer will go down well in Norway.

But so far they advertising team have been on fire with this film. I really want to see it!

Aiddon said...

so far the only GOOD superhero movie out this year has been X-Men. Thor wasn't very good and I don't have high hopes for Captain America. Seriously, the Avengers worship Marvel has been doing has got to stop as it's hurting the narratives of their films. Not that they'll ever admit that. Anyway, kinda disappointing that Lantern fizzled. There's always Cowboys and Aliens though

Cartogriffi said...

Well at least the Muppets movie looks worthwhile.

Chris Evans said...

I've started re-watching my Muppet Show DVDs to get into the mood for this movie :D

I'm just hoping that what they're hiding isn't that all the Muppets are really CGI. That would be Hollywood these days.

The Green Lantern movie sucks? I guess I shouldn't be too surprised.

The Muppets, though, will always be awesome, no matter what.

There are a lot of lampshades in this trailer, though, including the fact that it's a parody trailer. The Muppets are real big on parodies it seems.

First Hangover 2 and now this.
I'm starting to see a pattern here...

Arturo said...

Also, was Swedish Chef quoting Scarface??? I think he was.

BJames said...

"You may have heard that "Green Lantern" is a disaster"

well so was Thor...

Smashmatt202 said...

Thor was a disaster?!

bigjkt said...

@Arturo yes I listened to it twice the Swedish Chef was quoting 'Scarface', too funny.

saw your post on GL on hollywood-elsewhere-what are the things people hate about comic books

In brightest day, in darkest night,
Blake Lively's acting isn't right
For those who want to see this sight,
At least her dress is...
sometimes real tight.

Muppet trailer was amazing though.

CraftyAndy said...

that was better, could we have that movie instead. I am pretty pissed. Hey everyone do yourselves a favor and pick up Green Lantern: First Flight instead. it's a far more entertaining movie.

Rob said...

Ok, details I'm seeing.
Statler and Waldorf seem to be standing over some old paper, looks like the Declaration of Independance? Can't really read it.

Also, right after that.... is that supposed to be the Large Hadron Collider?

Rob said...

Also, I still think Jason Segel must have won a bet or something with Neil Patrick Harris, and now that poor sod has to do The Smurfs.

best marketing in a long time. i'm on board.
