Comic-Con: This new red-band trailer for Sausage Party is ruining my joke

2 min read


It wasn’t all superheroes and sci-fi during last night’s Comic-Con events. No, filling the needs of previously unheard of “we want to see anthropomorphic groceries swear like sailors as they fight for their lives” market, Seth Rogen brought his R-rated animated comedy Sausage Party to San Diego. Rogen screened the movie in its entirety in a venue outside the convention centre, and as you have probably figured out, we were not counted in that number (y’know, due to the whole “being on another continent” thing). And according to reports, the screening went down incredibly well.

He has made it up slightly to everybody else who was not lucky enough to be in attendance by debuting a brand new NSFW red-band trailer online for the film, which still looks absolutely hilarious. And also occasionally disturbing. Check it out below.

Man, going to the toilet to handle my business just suddenly became a whole lot more traumatic!

Rogen also spoke at Comic-Con about how making the first R-rated Pixar styled animated movie presented some unique challenges. Especially when it came to a graphic sex scene between a bagel (voiced by Edward Norton) and a piece of bread, which needed to have some footage trimmed.

“I really don’t think the MPAA knew how to handle this film. There were a lot of May Days and fluids. Our original version was eight minutes longer.”

Amazingly though the MPAA was mostly ok with one potentially upsetting part of the scene.

“When Sammy the Bagel takes his testicles over his face, the MPAA said to just remove a few hairs.”

Oh, MPAA. You so crazy.

It is scheduled for release in the US on August 12. Locally it hits screens on September 9.
