We thought that The Muppets parodying THE HANGOVER 2 was odd, well they've one-upped themselves with their latest promo for their upcoming return to the big-screen with this, a spoof of the very much adults only THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO (well, Fincher's bombastic trailer for his remake to be precise). 

Check it out...

Brilliant! We couldn't be more excited about this one.

In case you missed it, here's the official synopsis:

"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 house 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."

Disney will release THE MUPPETS on the 23rd of November Stateside, January across European territories, and finally February 17th in the UK (which we're still annoyed at).
