‘The Muppets’ Parody Trailer: Loud Music, Jason Segel, In Your Face!

The Muppets have masterfully parodied the trailer for the very grim-looking David Fincher version of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, injecting the cheerful faces of Jason Segel, Kermit the Frog, and Amy Adams in place of Dragon Tattoo‘s Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara, and various creepy folks skulking around in the icy tundra. THR brings up the fact that Dragon Tattoo is an R-rated movie and The Muppets is family fare. Thoughts?

The actual Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trailer is after the jump. I had the chance to see it on the big screen last night before watching Contagion (a very excellent, very scary movie); it’s both over-the-top and jarring. After the initial shock and awe of the clip, there was the hum of audience reaction and a few jittery laughs. But it also does the job. I’ll be watching this movie when it comes out around Christmastime. Happy holidays.
