First official poster for The Muppets unveiled

Hi-res version now online

The first poster for Jason Segel’s new The Muppets movie has been unveiled online.

A dodgy, low quality snap of the one sheet was revealed over the weekend, but now the official hi-res image has been released.

Featuring Gonzo, Fozzie, Kermit, Miss Piggy and Animal, it’s a slightly bizarre affair showing the puppets in full-body mode striding purposefully towards the camera.

Could that be a hint that the puppets in this new Muppets film will be more impressively life-like in their movements than ever?

Then there’s the matter of the strange tagline, ‘They’re closer than you think’. Is that a threat?

Directed by James Bobin and scripted by Jason Segel, The Muppets follows Gary (Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams), who attempt to stop crazy oil tycoon  Tex (Chris Cooper) from destroying the Muppet Theatre.

Check out the poster below...

The Muppets opens 23 November.

      So looking forward to this and revisiting my childhood - The Muppets were awesome!! By the way, the release date on the poster is for The States only. The film opens in the U.S. on Nov 23rd but it's still listed for Feb 17th 2012 in the UK :) Total Film Research Team ... FAIL!

      Totally up for it. But, can it be better than Muppet's Treasure Island or Muppet Christmas Carol? Hmm. Whatever the reviews, i'm gonna be there on the first night in the cinema without fail. Gotta love the muppets :)
