CinemaCon is currently taking place in Las Vegas. It is the largest and most important gathering of movie theatre owners from around the world.
Various studios are showing special previews of their upcoming features and the movie stars are hanging out there as well.
Yesterday, Jason Segel and Amy Adams were on hand to give a preview of the upcoming The Muppets, set to release around Thanksgiving.
Comedian Segel co-wrote, produced and stars in the movie and he explained to exhibitors that he's loved The Muppets since he was a kid, and that they were his first comedic influence.
The new movie will have four new musical acts in the movie and a new Muppet will be introduced who is the roommate of Segel's character. In the film, Segel and Adams' characters endeavor to reunite the Muppets, who are scattered all over the world, including Paris, where Miss Piggy resides.
We saw the crew filming some of this movie a few months ago at the El Capitan Theater. It looks amazing. We can't wait!
Amy was also just cast as Lois Lane in Superman: Man of Steel!!
Who is your favorite muppet?
