The Happytime Murders: Not your Mama's Muppets


After years of speculation and dwindling hopes the trailer for The Happytime Murders dropped this morning! We first heard about this Sesame Street meets Se7en puppet-filled serial killer mash-up 6 years ago when concept art started circulating.  We're happy to report that the world where puppets and humans co-mingle seen in the trailer looks very true to what we saw in the concept art back in 2012. The Happytime Murders is the first feature film produced under the Henson Alternative brand and, to add to the excitement, Brian Henson (son of Jim Henson) still looks to be in the director's chair. It's great to see that all the things that made the initial reports sound so interesting haven't changed. Although we can't say we're too broken up about Melissa McCarthy taking on the lead role as opposed to Katherine Heigl...
