It may feel like the summer movie season is quickly coming to a close, but there is still plenty to look forward to in the next few weeks. I think we can all agree that Suicide Squad is standing above the rest, but there are a small few that aren’t to far behind, one being Seth Rogen’s R-rated animated comedy Sausage Party. I’ll be the first to admit that I think Rogen and his on-screen talents have gotten a bit old as of late, but I will also be the first to admit that the first, red band trailer for Sausage Party was freaking awesome. We’ve heard of the concept and know all the talent they were able to grab for this project, but could it come to fruition? If the trailers are any indiction, it sure as hell is.
Maybe this movie looks a little bit to immature, but there are so few adult-centered animated features that I, as well as a butt load of others, can’t help but get excited for it. When was the last time we saw a big budget blockbuster attempt at putting some serious, foul-mouthed laughs into cartoon characters like Rogen’s sausage and Kristen Wiig’s bun? Exactly.
But it’s not just all dirty jokes, as the trailer highlights some real, heart-string moments between the characters as they come to realize they may be at fault for all that has occurred. And if the full feature can stay true to the trailers, this R-rated animated comedy will be able to pull off what a number of animated movies can’t in giving itself a backbone of thematic concerns and a heartfelt narrative.
Check out the foul-mouthed, red band trailer below and let us know your thoughts in the comments. How have you liked the trailers? Are you excited for an R-rated animated comedy with this kind of talent involved? Sausage Party hits shelves August 12th, 2016 and stars the voices of Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Dnany McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Edward Norton, and Salma Hayek.
Sausage Party, the first R-rated CG animated movie, is about one sausage leading a group of supermarket products on a quest to discover the truth about their existence and what really happens when they become chosen to leave the grocery store.
