As you would expect from the Muppets, the Muppets Most Wanted marketing campaign satirizes Hollywood’s marketing cliches. A new set of international posters follows suit and parodies posters for Skyfall, The World Is Not Enough, Face/Off, and (surprisingly, wonderfully) Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. There are naturally some fun fake titles (Animal Piggy Frog Spy) and clever redesigns, but all I need is Kermit’s finger guns.
Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, and Tina Fey star alongside the Muppets in the sequel directed by James Bobin. Muppets Most Wanted opens March 21. Check out the posters after the break.
Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid, Dublin 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, a.k.a. Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
