Few people are as welcome on our televisions as Terry Crews and few felt creatures warm our hearts quite like the Muppets. In other words, if you want to sell us a Toyota, there are far worse spokespeople (and spokespuppets) to use. In the grand tradition of modern Super Bowl ads, the presumably very expensive spot starring these guys is online in advance of the big game, giving everyone who doesn't watch football a chance to remember how much they like the Muppets and that really funny guy who used to play sports-ball once upon a time.
And, of course, a chance to BUY TOYOTA BUY TOYOTA BUY TOYOTA.
While many of 2013's best movies and TV series were being honored at the 2014 Golden Globes awards ceremony, hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, one of the films coming out this year was left out, 'Muppets Most Wanted,' and fans were upset! Just take a look at the new 'Muppets' trailer that aired during Sunday's ceremony.
As we're currently in the throngs of awards season, studios are combing through movie reviews to find the most beaming critiques to place in new "critics" TV spots to promote their films' Oscar clout -- look at ones for 'Gravity,' 'Dallas Buyers Club' and the like. Well, leave it to 'The Muppets Most Wanted' to come up with one that puts all the rest to shame.
New on DVD, Blu-ray and streaming this week, new-school superheroics, two Holiday treats and the complications of love.
It's been quiet on the 'Muppet 2' front for a while. We knew that James Bobin would return to write and direct, with writing assistance from Nicholas Stoller, and we knew that the sequel would be Jason Segel-free. But it looks like now they've started the casting process for the next film, and the first name is a bit of a surprise: Christoph Waltz.
One of the sad trade-offs of network comedies is that despite larger episode orders, episodes tend to shoot in studio, thus making it difficult to procure much news from filming. So while we don't get know much about the hotly-anticipated 'Community' season 4, the first under new show-runners Moses Port and David Guarascio, we've all got our potential wishlist. What's one 'Community' star saying they'd love to see as an episode?
