Muppet marketing has fans “Green With Envy”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: It was an inside joke for about 20 minutes … and a clever one, at that. But once the cat (and frog and pig) was out of the bag that the trailer and poster for the generic-looking romantic comedy “Green With Envy” was really a tease for Disney’s Muppet movie, the clip immediately went viral.

Here’s the goof trailer, in case you have not seen it yet (the reveal is still good for a laugh, even if you know it’s coming):

And here’s a new faux poster for “Green With Envy,” which has a Muppet cameo is you look closely enough. (Here’s a hint: He’s green, and can be seen in one of the trees.)

So thankfully, there is no woefully generic rom-com starring Jason Segel and Amy Adams coming our way. Instead, we get what looks to be an intelligent, star-studded “Muppets” movie heading to theaters in November.
