Trailer Watch: The Muppets, Red Bands for 30 Minutes or Less and Conan the Barbarian and more

The Muppets continues its trailer domination with a clever send-up of Green Lantern. I’m a diehard Muppets fan and if the movie turns out to be half as clever as its marketing, I’ll be seeing this in theaters more than once.

Check out the trailer and the synopsis below.

On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate.

The Muppets is directed by James Bobin (Flight of the Conchords) and stars Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper and a whole bunch of felt, and hits theaters on November 23, 2011.

Next we have a longer look at the new film from Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer, 30 Minutes or Less. It looks like it could be a good, blue time at the movies, but it also looks like we may have seen all of the best moments in this trailer. We’ll know on August 12, 2011.

I…really don’t know how to feel about the trailer for Conan the Barbarian. On the one hand, we have some nice sword and sorcery set pieces, and new Conan Jason Momoa is already more eloquent than Arnie ever was. And hey, Ron Perlman right? On the other hand, it is set to some godawful nu-metal and the effects look (hopefully?) unfinished. Hopefully a fun time at the movies.

Conan the Barbarian is directed by Marcus Nispel (Pathfinder, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and slices his way into theaters on August 19, 2011.

I’m pumped for Attack the Block. Directed by Joe Cornish, starring Nick Frost, and with a concept almost as high as Cowboys and Aliens, it will hopefully be a blast. This new trailer does nothing to diminish that hope.

Attack the Block is directed by Joe Cornish (screenwriter The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn) and stars a gang of awesomely fantastic unknowns. See it July 29, 2011.

Just because ending with goosebumps is awesome, I give you a new trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2.

Harry Potter is directed by David Yates, stars everyone that all the others did and will show Twilight why it is far more deserving of two movies on July 15, 2011.
