You can mop out all the swear words and sex business you like from Seth Rogen’s R-rated animated comedy Sausage Party, but even a G-rated makeover cements that some impressionable youths are guaranteed to be traumatized Rod and Todd Flanders style by this upcoming opus. (And that’s okay.)
Our first taste of Sausage Party (hmm… that doesn’t sound right) came courtesy of the red band trailer that popped up a few months back. Now we’ve been presented with a green band trailer that curbs the cursing, but manages to keep in all the sentient food wailing in agony. So instead of our Irish potato friend including the word “f*ck” as he’s skinned alive, it’s a slightly different brand of screaming. It remains a great gag, although there’s still something remarkably unsettling about a more family-friendly version of a tater getting a torture porn send-off.
If you’ve seen the original saucier trailer, this preview will probably come across a tad redundant, but if you haven’t or would like a refresher, the jokes are still worthy of your laughs and gasps. There’s also a new poster that’s flopped out to drive home that you will get dong jokes in this motion picture.
Reliable comedy hands Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg paired with Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir to write this Pixar-skewering film which includes the likes of Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, and James Franco among the voice talent. Sausage Party is scheduled to appear in theaters on August 12.
