The Muppets (2011)


Today’s Google Doodle celebrating Jim Henson’s 75th birthday reminded me that the upcoming Muppets film is laced with a great preservation theme. Oil tycoon Tex Richman (Chris Cooper – amazing) plans to demolish the Muppet theater and drill on its site. Enter Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams), who work to reunite the Muppets and save the theater…can we say grass roots activism? To know whether they succeed and save the theater is enough to make me see it…the fact that Adams and Segel are proven singers and the massively famous cast list are just icing on the cake!
(Non-preservation note: The new trailer parodying the “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” is genius.)
