The Muppets is a 2011 American musical comedy film and the seventh theatrical film featuring the Muppets. The film is directed by James Bobin, written by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller, produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, and stars Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper and Rashida Jones, as well as Muppet performers Steve Whitmire, Eric Jacobson, Dave Goelz, Bill Barretta, David Rudman, Matt Vogel, and Peter Linz. The film's score was composed by Christophe Beck, while Flight of the Conchords member Bret McKenzie served as music supervisor, writing four of the film's five original songs. In The Muppets, devoted fan Walter, his brother Gary, and Gary's girlfriend Mary, help Kermit the Frog reunite the Muppets, as they must raise $10 million to save the Muppet Theater from Tex Richman, a businessman who plans to demolish the studio to drill for oil.

Walt Disney Pictures originally announced the film's development in March 2008, with Segel and Stoller writing the screenplay, and Mandeville Films co-producing the film. Bobin was hired to direct in January 2010, and the film's supporting cast was filled out in October of the same year, with the casting of Adams, Cooper, and Jones. Filming began in September 2010 and was completed entirely in Los Angeles, California. The film was the first theatrical Muppet production without the involvement of veteran Muppet performers Frank Oz and Jerry Nelson, although Nelson provides an uncredited vocal cameo. Instead, their characters are performed by Jacobson and Vogel, respectively, marking their theatrical feature film debut as those characters.

The Muppets premiered at the 2011 Savannah Film Festival and was released theatrically in North America on November 23, 2011. The film was both critically and commercially successful; grossing $165 million worldwide against a $45 million budget, and earning praise for its humor, characterization, and soundtrack. The film won an Academy Award for Best Original Song for McKenzie's "Man or Muppet", as well as garnering BAFTA, Grammy Award and Critic's Choice Awards nominations. A sequel, Muppets Most Wanted, was released on March 21, 2014.

Cela fait trois ans que Alice sillonne les mers en tant que capitaine du navire Wonder, le vaisseau de feu son père, le Lord Kingleigh. En 1875, après son retour d'un de ses voyages en Chine, Alice reçoit la visite d'un mystérieux papillon bleu. Elle devine tout de suite qu'il s’agit d'Absolem. Lui faisant confiance, elle le suit, et c'est grâce à lui qu'elle traverse un miroir. De l'autre côté, Absolem fait savoir à Alice que le Chapelier Fou, le grand ami de cette dernière, est en danger. Sans hésiter, Alice rejoint vite la demeure du Chapelier, qu'elle trouve mourant (souffrant de tristesse et d'anxiété en pensant que sa famille est encore vivante). D'après la Reine Blanche, Mirana, le seul moyen de le sauver est de remonter le temps. La mission d’Alice est donc de sauver le Chapelier en sauvant sa famille en essayant de ne pas se faire attraper par le Temps lui-même, qui a collaboré avec la perfide Reine Rouge, Iracebeth, la sœur de Mirana.

The film outlines the daily lives of two punks in Salt Lake City, Utah in the fall of 1985: Stevo and his best friend, "Heroin" Bob; Stevo narrates the film. The nickname "Heroin" is ironic, as Bob is afraid of needles and actually believes that any drug (with the notable exception of alcohol and cigarettes) is inherently dangerous.

Set in the 1910s, the story opens with a montage of European Grand Prix races in which a particular car appears to win every race. In the final race, the car swerves to avoid a girl and a dog, loses control, crashes, and catches fire, bringing its racing career to an end. The car ends up in an old garage in rural England, where two children, Jeremy and Jemima Potts, have grown fond of it. They are told by a junkman that he intends to buy the car from the garage owner for scrap. The children (who live with their widowed father Caractacus Potts, an eccentric inventor, and his equally peculiar father) implore their father to buy the car before the junkman does, but he does not have the money. While playing truant, they meet Truly Scrumptious, a beautiful upper class woman with her own motorcar. She brings them home to report their truancy to their father. Truly shows interest in Caractacus' odd inventions, but he is affronted by her insistence that his children should be in school.

The film starts with con-artist Chuck Reardon (Bing Crosby) as a side-show caller at a circus advertising an act featuring his friend Hubert "Fearless" Frazier (Bob Hope), as a human cannonball, with 'Fearless' quickly substituting a dummy at the last minute and hiding in a secret compartment. The flaming dummy sets the big tent on fire and everyone into a panic and the two of them flee. Their subsequent acts show 'Fearless' doing more dangerous acts, usually getting injured. When Chuck brings the next 'great idea', wrestling a live octopus, 'Fearless' finally balks and wants to go back to the states. At a fancy restaurant, they're sent champagne by a wealthy man, diamond baron Charles Kimble (Eric Blore). The festive mood turns sour when the police show up, but Kimble bails them out. They decide to go home to the United States, but when Chuck goes to get the tickets Kimble invites him onto his yacht for a drink.
