Disney’s marketing for The Muppets was probably one of the more successful promotional campaigns of 2011 – and was downright fun, to boot. Jim Henson’s beloved puppets lampooned just about every big movie that hit in the latter half of last year, including Green Lantern, Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Paranormal Activity, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Hangover II…even Bollywood. After awhile, even we here at Screen Rant felt compelled to get in on the fun, and created our very own Muppet Avengers mashup trailer.
Well, if you were one of the many who enjoyed those spoofs, you’re in luck: Disney is releasing The Muppets on home video this month, and in honor of further promotion, the puppet gang is back to making fun of the hot topic movies hitting screens ...

The Cabin in the Woods is a long-delayed horror flick directed by Cloverfield screenwriter Drew Goddard and based on a script he co-penned with Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator (or, as he’s better known nowadays, The Avengers director) Joss Whedon.
Starring in the film are likes of such Whedon show alumni as Fran Kranz and Amy Acker (Dollhouse) alongside a pre-Thor Chris Hemsworth and several TV stars who’ve become bigger players since filming on The Cabin in the Woods took place a few years back.
Today, we have a new minute-long TV trailer for The Cabin in the Woods. It doesn’t offer much in the way of new footage, though it does continue to emphasize (ad nauseum) the idea firmly established by the official trailer: this isn’t the sort of “beautiful young people ...

While most people (understandably) initially rolled their eyes at the idea of Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill co-headlining the 21 Jump Street movie, we here at Screen Rant have actually been optimistic about that TV show adaptation/reboot for a while now. Based on the positive pre-release word of mouth for the R-Rated action-comedy, it looks as though our faith may be rewarded after all.
For additional proof that 21 Jump Street directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) and their fellow film talents have a hit on their hands, you need look no further than a new five minute long red band promo which features (among other things) Ice Cube dropping some solid f-bombs, along with Tatum and Hill both getting into some genuinely funny shenanigans.

Now that the Oscars have passed and we’ve survived the doldrums of the past two months, it’s time to get excited about movies again. Although we still have a few months before 2012′s biggest films hit theaters – I’m talking to you, The Dark Knight Rises – March offers a few films that we at Screen Rant are especially excited about.
With that in mind, we’ve compiled a list of “10 Movies We’re Looking Forward to in March 2012.” Some are slated to be big blockbusters while others will likely just attract a niche audience. But, all together, they will all make for an interesting month at the cineplex.
