James Bond & Spy Thriller Parody Posters for 'Muppets Most Wanted'
Though the first batch of trailers and most recent "We're Doing a Sequel" musical number seem to promise a great sequel in Muppets Most Wanted, we wish there were some parody trailers in the same vein as the promotions for The Muppets. Those trailers took aim at Green Lantern, The Hunger Games and other popular films of the time with all the fun of The Muppets. Well, now we get a small taste of that parody style with some posters from across that pond that have blended Kermit the Frog with a couple James Bond posters and other action/spy thrillers. They're pretty awesome, and we wish there were more of them. Look!
Here's the UK parody posters for Muppets Most Wanted, the first one targeting Face/Off:
With another using the very British spy thriller Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy:
And then James Bond gets skewered with a The World is Not Enough parody:
Along with the much more obvious spoof of Skyfall:
Thanks to Bleeding Cool for pointing out these awesome parody posters.
Muppets Most Wanted is directed by James Bobin (The Muppets) who co-wrote the script with Nicholas Stoller. This time the entire Muppets gang is on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two (Ricky Gervais). The film also features Ty Burrell, Tina Fey, Ray Liotta and many more with Walt Disney Pictures releasing the film everywhere on March 21st, 2014 next year. Excited?
