    Bret McKenzie & 'Muppets' Director James Bobin Are Writing A 'Labyrinth'-Like Original Musical Film

    The announcement that Bret McKenzie would supply “The Muppets” with its songs came as a surprise, but a perfectly logical one, and the "Flight of the Conchords" star more than proved to be a smart hire with some of the best movie musical songs in recent memory, one of which, "Man Or Muppet," saw McK...

    Grammys: 'The Muppets,' 'The Artist,' 'The Dark Knight Rises,' 'Dragon Tattoo' & More Nominated For Soundtrack & Score

    We haven't paid attention to the Grammys in years, mostly because it's irrelevant, these days we're barely familiar with half the nominees, and the show is usually pure tedium. (Don't even get us started on that Beach Boys tribute thing last year.) But for movie buffs looking to main...

    Mike Newell Out, 'The Muppets' Helmer James Bobin In To Direct WWII Spy Flick 'Agent Zigzag'

    Let's get this out of the way first and let's not be super alarmist about it (aka don't panic Miss Piggy and Kermit fans). There's nothing super concrete that says "The Muppets" sequel has been delayed, scrapped, etc. However, in a new Variety report about "The Muppets...

    Jason Segel Says No ‘Muppets’ Sequel Cameo; Discusses Slate Of Future Projects

    The past six months have been a whirlwind for Jason Segel. In November he successfully revived a long-dormant franchise with “The Muppets." Last month, his semi-dramatic turn in the Duplass Brothers’ “Jeff, Who Lives at Home” was released to strong critical praise. And n...

    James Bobin & Nicholas Stoller Sign On For 'Muppets' Sequel, Jason Segel Too Busy To Co-Write This Time

    While the $153 million worldwide take for "The Muppets" probably was a bit below the numbers Disney were looking for with their franchise reboot, there are some things to note. Of all the Muppet movies so far, that film was the most financially successful at the box office, and on a purely...

    OSCARS DEATH RACE: THE MUPPETS

    I loved the Muppets as a kid -- "The Muppet Show" is one of the few programs my parents' ambitious first-child rules about TV would allow -- and I remember them fondly. But I had misgivings about "The Muppets" going in, for two reasons. The first is that, while I like Jason Segel, he works better fo...

    5 Songs That Should've Been Nominated For An Oscar & Would Have Made The Live Show More Fun

    Never exactly the finest hour of the Oscars, the Best Original Song category of the Academy Awards this year has been something of a fiasco. First it was nominations with only two tracks -- "Man or Muppet" from "The Muppets" and "Real In Rio" from the animated film &quo...

    From the Electro-Pop of Drive to a Tamil-Language Novelty Song, These Were 2011's Top Moments of Music in Film

    As the music industry is busy writing its own obituary, music on film keeps getting better and better. While the year's biggest music-on-film hits were not necessarily original tunes, with Wagner probably providing the most memorable aural experience at theaters, the soundtracks of "Drive" and "The...

    Hope You Like Synths: The Best Scores & Soundtracks Of 2011

    Way back in the day, The Playlist started as a site focused principally on the places where movies and music met, and in particular, on scores and soundtracks. We've widened our net in the intervening years simply because that sole focus felt too small and we're movie lovers just as much as ...
