It’s not every day we hear about The Muppets being killed off one by one! Brian Henson is taking The Muppets on a more dark journey with his new film The Happytime Murders. We don’t have much information at this time, however, we do have the release date, plot details, and some cast and crew info!
Check out the lowdown here!
Hold the phone! This Muppet movie has an R rating! How’s that for switching things up? Most horror films don’t even get an R rating these days. Which makes me even more excited to see it!
Official Synopsis of The Happytime Murders:
When the puppet cast of an ’80s children’s TV show begins to get murdered one by one, a disgraced LAPD detective-turned-private eye puppet takes on the case.
These movie stills are crazy! It is giving off a Cool World (1992) meets Sin City (2005) type of vibe only instead of cartoons, with puppets! Are those strippers?
Based on the cast, I’m thinking this is going to be one hell of a dark comedy murder mystery! Melissa McCarthy (Ghostbusters,2016), Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, 2012), Maya Rudolph (Bridesmaids, 2011, Joel McHale (Deliver Us From Evil, 2014, and Bill Barretta who has done multiple voices for the Muppets through-out the years!
We are excited to announce we don’t have to wait that long to actually see The Happytime Murders! It will be coming soon to a theater near you on August 17, 2018! Hopefully, we don’t have to wait that much longer to see a trailer!
