‘Sausage Party’ Trailer: Seth Rogen Stars As Hot Dog In R-Rated Animated Movie
The first trailer for Seth Rogen’s R-rated CGI-animated movie Sausage Party was released on Tuesday. The film features the voices of Rogen and some of today’s top comedy stars, including Jonah Hill, Kristen Wiig and Paul Rudd, bringing life to various foods on a quest to leave the grocery store. Watch the red-band preview below!
The trailer begins innocently enough, with a group of talking hot dogs, buns, potatoes and more food products celebrating being “chosen” to leave the supermarket. But what appears to be a Pixar-esque family movie soon turns into something else entirely when the edible characters discover the horrifying truth about what happens after they’re brought to the kitchen.
There’s plenty of profane language and food-related violence, including a hilarious spoof of Saving Private Ryan, but with an Oreo losing a limb instead of a soldier. It becomes clear no food is safe, not even the baby carrots. In addition to Rogen, Hill, Wiig and Rudd, the rest of the all-star voice cast includes James Franco, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, Edward Norton, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz and Salma Hayek.
“Sausage Party” hits theaters on August 12, but don’t bring the kids! Watch the red-band trailer below.
