It's Law & Order Meets The Muppets In The Red Band Trailer For The Happytime Murders
The Red Band trailer for the The Happytime Murders starring starring Melissa McCarthy looks fucking hilarious. I haven't been this excited for anything involving puppets since they cancelled Greg The Bunny. Eat shit, Fox.
Directed by Brian Henson (yes THAT Brian Henson, son of The Muppets creator, the beloved Jim Henson), The Happytime Murders takes place in a world where puppets and humans both exist IRL. Exciting, I know. Well, as things go in buddy cop movies, some people get killed... er, puppets. I should say "puppets" get killed and it's up to former cop-turned private eye, Phil Phillips (a puppet) to hunt this killer down and he'll have to reunite with his ex-partner, Detective Connie Edwards (a human), played by Melissa McCarthy.
If you love all things Muppet, you may want to avert your eyes. And if you really love Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Team America or Greg The Bunny you may want to kick back and relax. You're not going anywhere.
Shit yes man! As an fan of all things Muppet and having what some would call an affinity for "low brow" humor, I'm terribly intrigued this movie.
The Happytime Murders is in theaters on August 17th, 2018.
For pudding, here's the first official poster and synopsis.
