There were the plot leaks. There was news of the massive number of cameos — Jack Black! Emily Blunt! Pretty much everyone in The Hangover! But the one unknown we can focus of energies on now that there is nothing to do but pre-order tickets for Thanksgiving weekend: What the eff should Miss Piggy wear?
