Note: With Sausage Party in theaters this weekend, we’re re-running our review from San Diego Comic-Con.
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.

The cast of Sausage Party has one of the most impressive voice casts of any animated comedy. Seth Rogen and Kristen Wiig are the leads, but the rest of the food (as well as a hygienic item and a couple humans) are brought to life by Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Edward Norton, Salma Hayek, Anders Holm and co-directors Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan. However, there’s one voice who was once set for a cameo but fell away for a perplexing reason.
Sean Combs (aka P. Diddy, Diddy, Puff Daddy, Puff the Magic Dragon or whatever he’s calling himself this year) was once slated to have a voice role in Sausage Party. But as one certain detail on the project became more clear to him, the rapper/actor ended up falling away from the project. Find out why we didn’t get a Sausage Party P Diddy cameo after the jump.

This weekend’s raunchy, R-rated animated flick Sausage Party imagines what it would be like if the food in our grocery aisles was alive. The movie is hilarious, twisted and outrageous, but that wasn’t enough for Seth Rogen. In addition to bringing talking foods to the big screen, he also wanted to bring them to a real life grocery store with a hilarious and creepy Sausage Party prank.
A special effects team set up a few different animatronic foods in a real grocery store and Seth Rogen made them talk live from another room. The initial shock of people realizing they’re seeing talking food is funny in itself, but then the conversations they have with the food in question are even better. Read More »
Sausage Party is a hard-R comedy. Around the time the project was first announced, actor, producer, and co-writer Seth Rogen described it as “an R-rated Pixar-style movie” that’s “fucking filthy” and “really, really, really dirty.” Pretty much everyone who has seen the film, including our own Jacob Hall, agrees with Rogen that it truly is one dirty movie. The film is R-rated, but Rogen and all involved had to make some cuts to secure that rating.
Below, learn what was removed to take the Sausage Party rating down to an R instead of an NC-17.

It’s seriously a miracle that the animated comedy from Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg was even made. And now you can celebrate that little miracle by coloring all the wieners and buns you can dream of in a Sausage Party coloring book that’s meant just for adults.

Remember those junior high school dances of yore, when the boys would line up on one side of the room and the girls would line up on the other, and both sides would talk a big game but no one could actually bring themselves to actually get close to each other? That’s basically this first clip from Sausage Party, except of course we’re talking about sausages and buns, not guys and gals. Watch the Sausage Party clip below.

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.

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.
It’s up to you whether you watch the new red band Sausage Party trailer after the jump. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
In show business, pretty much any publicity is good publicity. And in the case of the marketing for Sausage Party, it looks like Sony Pictures is making some weird choices in their efforts to promote the R-rated animated comedy from Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg. We’ve seen red band trailers, a Walt Disney inspired promo and an Independence Day PSA, but this latest video promoting the movie is the weirdest as it sees costumed character versions of Frank the hot dog and Brenda with the good buns appearing on a morning talk show.
