Sausage Party Preacher

Sausage Party screened during San Diego Comic-Con this year. Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg co-wrote the raunchy animated comedy about supermarket food that dreams of being taken home by a customer. Once purchased, the food panics that they are being eaten. Rogen was at a press conference for his AMC series Preacher and discussed the mashup of genres in Sausage Party, although he corrected me when I suggested it blended R-rated comedy with the animation genre.  Read More »

With two episodes left in its first season — and now only one as of publication — Preacher came to San Diego Comic-Con. The cast and creators of the show gave a press conference, where Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg dodged questions about the finale or second season with jokes. They did reveal some noteworthy behind-the-scenes stories though, particularly that a frequent collaborator of theirs was once considered for the lead role of Jesse Custer.

“We had a nice conversation with James Franco at one point,” Goldberg said. “He looks very Jesse-ish. He was into it but just literally he has to make 4,000 things in 20 different formats. It would take up his time and he wouldn’t be able to do a Tori Spelling movie or whatever the hell he was going to do.”  Read More »

Sausage Party Review

Seth Rogen has said on a number of occasions that the desire to make his own animated movie came from a love for Pixar movies. Even though he didn’t exactly grow up on them as a child (he was already 14 when the first Toy Story arrived in 1995), he’s still loved them immensely as an adult. However, if Rogen was going to attempt to make his version of a Pixar movie, you know it wasn’t going to be anywhere near family friendly.

Sausage Party had a special screening here at Comic-Con last night, and the final result of years of development, test screenings and hard work is an outrageous comedy that brings the laughs hard, and all the most raunchy and raw hilarity hasn’t even been touched by the movie’s marketing.

Sausage Party Trailer

Let’s get this out of the way right now. If you’re already on board for the raunchy, R-rated animated comedy Sausage Party from Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, then you probably shouldn’t watch the new red band trailer that was just released. However, if you’re the kind of person that likes to watch all the trailers, then we can’t stop you from watching this latest tease that reveals much more about what happens after Frank the hot dog (voiced by Seth Rogen) learns what happens to food after it goes to the “great beyond” outside of the grocery store.

Sausage Party TV Spot

In about a month, we’ll all be chomping down on some tasty cookout food when Independence Day rolls around in July. Thankfully, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s animated comedy Sausage Party isn’t hitting theaters before that to dissuade us from murdering all the food we eat.

A new Sausage Party TV spot has a bunch of new footage from the animated movie that imagines a world where humans don’t know that food is alive. Foods like hot dogs, carrots, bananas, peanut butter and anything you can think of come to life just like the toys in Toy Story. But in Sausage Party, rather than being cherished by humans, they’re viciously prepared, cooked and eaten, which comes as a big shock to the innocent food that usually celebrates being bought in the grocery store.

“We were very concerned about our budget on this show, and how good our visual effects would be,” co-director and executive producer Seth Rogen says at the start of the Preacher audio commentary, as he discusses the opening scene set in space. “We said, ‘Let’s not even try to make it look like good visual effects; let’s make it look like visual effects from 1967, so this is what we came up with.” Only days after the series’ excellent pilot aired, Rogen and co-director Evan Goldberg‘s commentary for the Preacher pilot–which performed well in the ratings Sunday night–has been made available online.

Walt Disney parody

During Sunday night’s premiere of Preacher, a new TV spot for Sausage Party aired. Continuing to play up the R-rated spin on familiar animated movies, Rogen makes an appearance, in the spirit of Walt Disney, to introduce his latest creation, Frank (voiced by Rogen). With horn-rimmed glasses, an old-fashioned suit, and a retro setting, the co-writer, producer, and voice actor shows off his “Animation Imaginatorium.”

Below, watch the Sausage Party Walt Disney spoof.

Preacher cast 1

Last night, Seth RogenEvan Goldberg, and showrunner Sam Catlin pulled off what was once considered impossible to some filmmakers: they successfully adapted Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s Preacher. Rogen, Goldberg, and Catlin ground the often wacky and wild story without excluding Ennis’ dark sense of humor or the spirit of the characters. The pilot retains some of the series’ key elements while also taking the story in a slightly different–and arguably more somber–direction.

To celebrate AMC’s adaptation, Gallery 1988 will release a new Preacher poster following all of the first season’s 10 episodes. Check out their first Preacher poster below.

preacher review

Preacher is a very different beast than the Vertigo comic book series it is based on and for many fans, this will be a difficult hurdle to leap. But everyone else can just jump right in and enjoy the blasphemy, irreverent comedy and the hilariously excessive violence, because the first chapter of AMC’s new series is a triumph. This is the kind of pilot episode that arrives feeling fully formed and confident. Preacher knows what it is, lays all of its cards on the table in the first five minutes, and asks you to come along for the ride with a wicked gleam in its eye. From the look of things, this will be a ride worth taking.
