Sausage Party is undoubtably going to be this year’s biggest comedy film. Why? Because it’s about talking sausages that have serious feelings (and swear a lot), and because the trailer looks HILARIOUS.
An X-rated movie created by funny men Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, this flick focuses on a hot dog named Frank (Rogen), who realises what really happens to food once it leaves the supermarket… (And let’s just say it’s not pretty).
It also features a lesbian taco voiced by Salma Hayek and a Jewish bagel voiced by Edward Norton, so be warned: plenty of controversial racial and cultural stereotypes WILL be included.
Sausage Party has also managed to line-up pretty much every other famous funny face in Hollywood to appear on the cast (largely, we imagine, due to Seth’s popularity), so look out for more cameos from the likes of Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, James Franco and Paul Rudd.
And it’s not just us who are excited to see it – it’s already racked up a huge celebrity following, despite the trailer only having just been released.
After seeing the first ever red-band clip of the film at US festival SXSW this week, Katy Perry immediately took to Twitter to write: ‘Omg. I will camp overnight in line like a kid at a Supreme store to see this’, to which Rogen replied: ‘I think we can proooooooobably organize a screening for you.’ LOL.
So basically, it might look like the cute and colourful opener of Toy Story, but don’t be fooled – this one is straight up naughty, and as politically incorrect as they come.
Not that Seth’s not still insisting that the idea first sprung from pure thoughts only (sure), as well as the desire to enter unchartered territory – films about food with feelings.
‘People like to project their emotions on to the things around them – their toys, their cars, their pets,’ Rogen said. ‘That’s what Pixar’s done for the last 20 years. So we thought: ‘What would it be like if our food had feelings?’ We very quickly realized that it would be f***ed up.’
