The trailer for Seth Rogen's new film starts off nicely. The big, bright supermarket is a friendly and positive place, where - spoiler! - all the food is alive, and they do their best to get chosen by customers. Rogen and his fellow foodies are finally chosen from the shelf and all is well with the world!
And then aaalll the swears happen.
We discover Rogen's new film 'Sausage Party' is actually a dark and dirty comedy about the uncomfortable fact that us humans like to eat the food we buy. Rogen's meaty character Frank (as in frankfurter - geddit?) leads the affront to get to the supermarket and warn the others that not all is what is seems once you leave the store. He seems to have a romance blossoming with Kristen Wiig's bun character, which is great because we all know how tasty hot dogs are, right?
Seth wrote the script with long-time writing buddy Evan Goldberg, and Kyle Hunter. The voice cast include a whole bevy on comedy favourites, including Pineapple Express co-star James Franco, Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, Paul Rudd, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and Bill Hayder. Directing the feature film are Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon. Vernon has previously directed Shrek 2 and Madagascar, and has extensive voice acting experience in a whole host of our favourite animations, whilst Tiernan - rather oddly - has only really directed Thomas the Tank Engine films to date.
A rough edit of the film was recently screened to audiences and SXSW festival in Texas, but you're going to have to wait until August 2016 to see how this sausage was made.
