It’s no secret that a lot of people were impressed by the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo teaser trailer. After all, David Fincher’s vision of Stieg Larsson’s bestselling novel captured both the eye and ear with its darkly beautiful look and pulse-pounding remix of Led Zepplin’s “Immigrant Song” by Trent Reznor.

Well, apparently the minds behind Disney’s The Muppets also enjoyed the Dragon Tattoo trailer as much as we did, because they’ve honored it in the best way by putting together a delicious parody for the latest Muppets trailer.

For those who don’t know, here’s a quick rundown of the latest Muppet adventure:

On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and 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 The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever 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.

Now check out the latest Muppets trailer, as well as the Dragon Tattoo teaser it’s poking fun at:

If that wasn’t enough (and let’s be honest, it’s pretty hilarious) check out this Muppets parody poster, which goes a step further by poking fun at that risque Dragon Tattoo teaser poster which was released a few months back:

People have been overwhelmingly positive about this new Muppets movie, and it’s easy to see why. Even with new talents like writer/director James Bobin and writer/actor Jason Segel handling Jim Henson’s iconic characters, the spirit of The Muppets’ sly and irreverent humor is still intact, and as effectively charming and amusing as it’s always been. That’s nothing short of amazing, given the cynical and raunchy comedic times we live in. Fingers crossed that the actual film is as good as this wonderful Muppets marketing campaign has been.

The Muppets return to the screen on November 23rd.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo will be in theaters a month later on December 21st.

  4. That was beautiful. Their best yet.

  5. This movie is going to be great. I can feel it!

  6. Laugh Out Loud.

  7. This will be bettter than every other comdedy this year. Absolutely hillarious stuff with all these trailers. And I always say, if you don’t like Muppets, there is something wrong deep inside you.

  8. That was hilarious. I didnt think I would actually be looking forward to seeing a muppets movie at 31 years old. Jesus!– but it doesn’t seem like a typical kiddie movie, it looks like a legitimate comedy that adults could like also. I can’t help but feel like the Muppet trailers are targeting adults not lil kids. ITS WORKING. lol I wonder if Shrek started this, or if the Muppets were always pushing toward adult viewers?

  9. Too funny, I love it! Hmmm, might have to see The Muppets!

  10. I loved it, fun, clean, genius

  11. Looks Fun :o)

  12. Muppet Domination! GLEE is featuring a Muppets song on the Nov 1st episode. That has potential awesomness written all over it.
