With Sony enduring a brutal year due to the painful birth of "Men In Black 3," which saw a slew of writers come and go from the project, extensive production delays, and a skyrocketing budget that is expected to be running well north of $200 million dollars aleady, they are not eager to make that same mistake twice.

It looks Reese Witherspoon is mixing it up, as the actress usually does. Earlier this year she starred in the period romancer "Water For Elephants" with Robert Pattinson, and in early 2012 Tom Hardy and Chris Pine will battle over her in McG's "This Means War." This fall she spent time hanging around indie filmmaking rising star Jeff Nichols, starring in his next effort, "Mud," and after that she's pairing up with a respected helmer for a new comedy.

Listen, we know. "The Muppets" marketing machine has been insane -- just look at the deluge of clips that have hit in the past week or so -- but dammit it all if these felt-covered creations don't keep melting our cold, cynical hearts each time they pop up on screen. With the release date looming, yet another trailer has arrived, and yes, it's charming, enjoyable, goofy and fun.
