There are plenty of movies I’m still looking forward to this summer, from this week’s Star Trek Beyond to David Ayer‘s Suicide Squad, despite my hesitance to accept Jared Leto as the Joker. The biggest potential blockbuster on my list, however, is Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s Sausage Party, which casts Rogen as the voice of a heroic weiner who contemplates God and existence when he finds out that people eat him and his friends. Maybe the movie looks a little immature – and? – but there are so few adult-oriented animated films, I can’t help but get excited for a big-budget attempt to put serious laughs in the mouth of cartoon characters like Kristen Wiig‘s bun.

The trailer includes a scene where Rogen’s Frank touches “tips” with Wiig’s bun, and later, Wiig’s character comes to believe that this act is the reason why God is allowing them to be eaten. There’s plenty of other new, uproarious footage in the trailer, but these two moments reveal the narrative heart of the film, the thematic concerns that form the film’s proverbial backbone, which very few animated films actually bother building up these days.


Sausage Party will be released nationwide by Sony and Annapurna on August 12th.

Here’s the new, explicit trailer for Sausage Party:

Here’s the official synopsis for Sausage Party:

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. The film features the vocal talents of a who’s who of today’s comedy stars – Seth Rogen, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Edward Norton, and Salma Hayek.
