Following its premiere at SXSW, Sony Pictures has released a restricted (not safe for work) trailer for Sausage Party, the first CG animated movie to earn an R rating from the MPAA. The trailer follows wieners, hot dog buns, baby carrots, and potatoes who’ve finally been selected as the ‘chosen ones’ and given the opportunity to go home with a family. They believe their lives are going to be filled with sunshine and roses, but they soon discover the horrible truth of what happens to food once it leaves the grocery store. Directed by Conrad Vernon (Monsters vs Aliens) and Greg Tiernan (Thomas & Friends), the voice cast includes co-writer 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. Sausage Party will slip into theaters on August 12, 2016.
The Plot: 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.
