The new ‘Muppets’ trailer: Jack Black, low-brow Fozzie humor and more


1. It will include Fozzie the Bear making fart jokes.

2. Rico Rodriguez (Manny from “Modern Family”) will appear and apparently confuse Kermit the Frog with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.

3. Jack Black will play a game of involuntary head bowling with Gonzo.

4. Camilla and the Chickens will sing a cover of Cee Lo Green’s “Forget You.” (Which in this context, should really be called “Cluck You.” But this is a family film, so that probably won’t be happening.)

Watch the new trailer below. (P.S. The latest clip doesn’t give us a glimpse of this, but apparently, as Backpage magazine reports, the Muppets Barbershop Quartet also will cover Nirvana’s “Smell Like Teen Spirit” with an assist from Dave Grohl. Finally, the merger of the comebacks of both grunge and the Muppets is complete.)

When she isn’t at a movie theater or writing about movies, Jen Chaney is ... um ... probably at home, watching a movie.
