The Green Band ‘Sausage Party’ Trailer Is Slightly More Kid-Friendly
Eating a hot dog will never be the same.
In the new trailer for Sausage Party, we watch sentient food discover their destiny outside the safe haven of the grocery store. The green band trailer has most of the same footage as the red band trailer – a poor potato getting sliced, an Oreo missing his backside, and other culinary catastrophes – just missing the profanity of the first.
When the groceries get slaughtered for one woman's dinner, Seth Rogen's hot dog Frank and Kristin Wiig's bun Brenda think it's all their fault. You see, Frank and Brenda touched tips, which I guess is how food has sex (or like, almost). It also brings up some very essential discussion questions: Can food get pregnant? If so, what kind of food baby can a sausage and a bun make? Is contraception a thing? Are there food STIs? (Apologies if you're eating lunch, but someone had to ask.)
The new movie from Rogen and Evan Goldberg looks to be everything you'd expect from the comedic duo, and something they most definitely thought up while super high. Rogen's Frank even gets stoned in the trailer, because of course. Also written by Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir and directed by Greg Tiernan Conrad Vernon, Sausage Fest features the voices of James Franco, Paul Rudd, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, Danny McBride, Salma Hayek, Jonah Hill, Edward Norton, Craig Robinson, Nick Kroll and David Krumholtz. The movie opens August 12, which gives you some time to consider going vegan.
