The First Trailer For Seth Rogen's Sausage Party Is Demented

Seth Rogen's tale about animated sentient sausages looks to put the 'R' in Pixar.

Because we live in a world where Seth Rogen can apparently do no wrong, it was announced all the way back in 2010 that the Neighbors star and writing partner Evan Goldberg would be teaming up yet again to bring us an R-rated animated film about talking sausages, not-so-subtly titled Sausage Party. Suffice it to say, no one really knew what to make of the news, and most just attributed it to one of Rogen's stonery musings that probably wouldn't ever see the light of day.

In 2014, however, The Wrap broke the story that not only would this long-gestating project actually be coming to fruition, but that the likes of Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, James Franco and Salma Hayek had signed on to voice characters in the film, which I feel compelled to reiterate is about talking sausages.

This week, we've been given our first look at what to expect from Sausage Party via a full-length red band trailer. The film's official description goes like so:

"Sausage Party 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."

While certainly bonkers in it's own right, it's not a plot that sounds all that more ridiculous than "a talking rat who dreams of becoming a five-star chef," right? It's basically Toy Story, but with food! The thing is, this being a Seth Rogen production and all, Sausage Party is one of the first Pixar-style animated movies exclusively catered toward the 18+ audience. The amount of f-bombs dropped in this trailer alone argues that Sausage Party may very well attempt to break the dubious swearing record achieved by Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street.

As for the story itself, well...it seems pretty twisted, and features one of the best Saving Private Ryan gags I've ever seen in the long, long history of Saving Private Ryan gags. So it's got that going for it.

Joining Rogen, Wiig, and Hill will be the vocal talents of Bill Hader, Michael Cera, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, and perhaps most surprisingly, Edward Norton. Sausage Party hits theaters on August 12th.

That was so delightfully fucked up I'm having trouble putting the joy I feel into words. Will definitely watch this one.

See, you know which character is female because it inexplicably has an hourglass figure including tits.

Seriously though, one of the things that makes the big studios actually good at this is that their character design is consistent inside of the world they created. The writing... doesn't seem like it will hold up long, but that will be talked about at length. I just, super don't like the character design from the giant bushy eyebrows sometimes there whenever they feel like who knows to the fact that it's full of inconsistencies like "why are the arms SOMETIMES the same color as their body, and who decides what characters just have mickey-mouse gloves"

Ah, swearing as a substitute for humor, and all the nuance of a four minute flash cartoon, expanded into an hour and a half film. I can't wait to skip this one. I'd love to be proven wrong, but the trailer most certainly does not give me high hopes.

P.S. Thanks

Did Maude Lebowski design that hot dog bun? Because its very vaginal. Which I guess is intentional as she's apparently the love interest for the hero, who is a phallic sausage. Freud would have a field day with this shit...

Also, visual gag of the eyes on potatoes becoming actual eyes that they're covered is actually kind of funny in a slightly horrific way

The trailer seems about as adult as Happy Tree Friends, with less gore and more swearing.

Why is it that adult animation is restricted to these "comedies?"

Why can't we have adult animated action shows or drama shows?

Anime can get away with this, but the West. (Even Europe) barely tries to unlock the potential of adult animation?

I think this looks hilarious and if you disagree you probably have a boring personality /jk. It would be hilarious if parents took their kids to see it thinking that it's just another animated kids movie.

As funny as that would be, it's rated R, so outside of Canada it's unlikely to happen (we're very lax about that king of thing. I remember my second Deadpool viewing had a guy with his son and daughter, both where 8-10, couldn't have been older or younger then that).

Because no one respects animation enough to do anything that isn't a crude comedy for adults. We're limited to anime and web series for adult animation that isn't juvenile.

Waltz with Bashir is good, Mary and Max is good, and er, that's basically it.

I think it's about time we had a good deconstruction of the "random things are sentient" trope that so many animated films go for and this film looks like it's having a lot of fun with that idea.

Okay okay, I laughed at the visual of the 'gutted' can of spaghetti (?) trying to scoop back in its 'entrails'.

But the jokes didn't really fire for me, so I'm very unlikely to actually watch the movie.

Sausages and buns eh? Stay classy Seth. And the bun's "lips"... just no.

I read that Sacha Baron Cohen said this movie was messed up. I don't know if that's an endorsement or an indictment.

Well, that was less terrible than I was expecting.

There were some creative visuals in there and its clearly taking a lot of delight in showing the characters as, well, food, meaning that they can kill them in all sorts of ways that would be too graphic and offputting for most people. I mean, its hard to be funny in the same scene that you skin somebody alive. We had a movie demonstrate that pretty well last year. They're definitely leveraging some of the strengths of animation but its a Seth Rogen movie so I'm still skeptical. If anything the animation will probably make it somewhat better than his usual fare and might make it worth watching on home video just because of that, because of all the criticisms I can levy at the footage we've seen, its not that it looked bad.

Adam Jensen:

I'm thinking quite the opposite. Another case of parents who didn't do their research ruining other people's fun by making those others pay with the aftermath of their parenting mistakes. Usually when this sort of thing happens the movie gets pulled from theaters, or at least, gets restricted show times, and where it used to be that it was less likely they're put on a video rental store's shelf now they'd be less likely to make it onto a streaming service. I mean, we had tons of parents bringing their kids to Deadpool even though there was a strong marketing push that basically was "don't bring your kid to this movie".

Nobody respects animation. Hell, Charlie Kaufman, a very beloved director, had a lot of people skipping out on his latest film, which got an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Picture (which is a pathetic joke of a category as it stands) solely because it was animated. I mean these are film snobs with one of their film snob idols rejecting it. I don't think the general attitude towards animation will change until the next (or current) really gets handed the reins.

I'm praying that this is a deliberate choice of a running gag and that in the end they don't go the cliche route with it like a lot of these crude, stoner comedies do. Its odd but the genre tends to fall into cliches more often than you'd expect.

That was funnier than the entirety of the trailer.

OT: Its looks horribly unfunny. Plus why does the hotdog bun have boobs and look a vagina. Like how worried were they that people wouldn't get its supposed to be a woman that they have to cram all that into one design. Plus it looks like they are making fun of gays with the whole 'twinke' thing.

FPLOON:
Fun/10... Better than Food Fight without laughing at the irony...

Other than that, I think I laughed harder than I needed to while watching that trailer...

Thank me... You always got my back...

Anyway, I might watch it the same way I watch other comedies made for adults: Say that I'll watch it in theaters and then don't because no one was going to watch it with me, anyway, on top of my laughter being more suitable for home consumption than for theater consumption...

There's also the Corto Maltese OAV/Movie series and what I am most looking forward to: a feature Film Blacksad movie. Franco:Belgian comics are so rich in adult/R rated animated movie potential.

Jesus Christ. America is not the only country in the world.

"Once you see that shit, it will fuck you up for life." Jesus dude, don't review the movie while you're still in it.

Wait, a Seth Rogen film I actually WANT to go see?

Oh no, I've entered some kind of bizzaro world where Seth makes good movies but Trump is going to be president...

I honestly wouldn't be surprised.

on topic, the saving private ryan moment is pretty clever.

double post for signing I agree?

Because animation is seen as a genre for the youngest generations. So Pixar and Dreamworks make family movies with some adult sensibilities, while the closest others can get to "adult" is scatological humor, which is the adults perspective of what 13 to 15 years old (the oldest they can get to the youngest generations without crossing into teenagers) humor looks like.

Adam Jensen:
Jesus Christ. America is not the only country in the world.

I realize that, which is why I'm talking about a phenomenon that isn't exclusive to the United States.

Looking at this, I'm not sure if Veggietales is more or less disturbing with added humanoid limbs.

*Watches trailer*
...What was in those dumplings I ate?
Well, crazy hallucinations about talking food won't keep me from enjoying Chinatown dumplings.

Adam Jensen:
Jesus Christ. America is not the only country in the world.

Of course not, but it is the only continent.
America consists of Brooklyn, Manhattan the Bronx and Queens.
To the East of America is ocean. Beyond that ocean is nothing.
North of America is the northern wildlands. North of that is Canadia; the red menace. No man has gone beyond Canadia to report what lies beyond and returned from the frozen hellscape alive.
West of America is the Soviet Union. West of that is Ocean. Beyond that ocean is nothing.
South of America is the Confederacy. South of the Confederacy is Florida. The madness that pervades Florida destroys the minds of anyone exploring beyond it.
The world is like Elder Scrolls; there used to be more continents, but in the distant past all the superfluous continents suffered various disasters and are now gone.

But where does my anime and walkman and kdramas comefrom.. they can't ALL be from California. And Brazilian Jiujitsu and JAckie Chan. And I think there is blasted hellscape of doom we're good to have never oppressed so can safely ignore called Africa. It was the homeland of Nelson Mandela.. did it follow him into the underworld?

No. No, no, no.
It isn't demented and it's not bonkers. it's fairly standard really. It's about animated sentient whatevers that run around screaming. Seen that tens of times already. It would be bonkers if it was actually for adults, but it kind of isn't. Instead, it is for even smaller kids. Spoiled ones.

Add this animated gem. Technotise: Edit & I
It's an animation about people who behave like people, not things with mouths.

There's another thread about this movie in the Off-Topic discussion board so i'll just post the same thing I did there into this one.

You can find the entire movie script right here:


and I would like to point extra attention towards lines 632 and onward.

If anyone feels like taking a longer look through it, feel free to point out things that are... interesting.

Fritz the Cat certainly wasn't a comedy, neither was Lord of the Rings or Heavy Metal.

Series I'll give you. Only one people have been able to give me that isn't anime is Spawn, and that had Yoshiaki Kawajiri working on it.

I'll double down on this: Why does traditional (2D) animation never do as well at the box office as CG animation? I'll grant that's mostly because the only one in recent decades has been Winnie the Pooh and Princess and the Frog.

Also I just got a major question I don't expect to be answered:

At one point does the food be come sapient? Hotdogs are said to be made of dozens if not hundreds of individual pigs and/or cows, so do they remember that? The flour is clearly alive on its own, so what about the bread? Do the buns remember being flour? Did the flour die to make the buns? Lettuce is clearly shown to be alive, so is wheat alive before it becomes flour?

Movie, your premise just raised so many questions!

Likewise, I've already posted this in the other thread, but I accept your line 632 and raise you my lines 566-582.

Because people associate 2D animation as only for kids.

3D CG can be seen as for everyone. Its mostly because of the Shrek movies.

Also American Pop is my favorite movie from Ralph Bakshi.
