New Sausage Party red band trailer and Q & A with Seth Rogen New Sausage Party red band trailer and Q & A with Seth Rogen Adriana Floridia7/22/2016 2:41:00 Pm

Warning: Content May Offend

Seth Rogen really cares what you will think of his latest film, Sausage Party.

The R-Rated animated food adventure just got a brand new red band trailer, but we also caught up with Rogen and his crew at San Diego Comic-Con, where we got some inside scoop about the film. Ten years in the making, this was Rogen's chance to put his mark on the animated genre, after being inspired by Disney and Pixar for his whole life.

Here are five things we learned from Seth Rogen and the makers of Sausage Party at Comic-Con!

1. The idea originated at a dinner party

‘Sausage Party’: Seth Rogen’s ‘R-Rated Pixar Movie’ Devours Comic-Con

16 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

San Diego — “I think the MPAA didn’t know how to handle food,” Seth Rogen said of his raunchy animated comedy “Sausage Party,” releasing Aug. 12, at a post-sausage Q&A session Thursday night. “They crossed into this unprecedented area of, ‘Is [the sausage] a d—? If it’s a pita bread’s ball sack, is it a ball sack?'”

That conundrum for the industry’s trade association is as good a way as any into discussing the film, which dabbles in religious and socio-political overtones while also featuring an actual douche bag sexually assault a juice box. There is nothing like “Sausage Party,” which first screened as a work in progress at the South by Southwest film festival in March. It is 100 percent its own thing.

The film, co-written by Evan Goldberg and Jonah Hill and directed by Greg Tiernan (“Thomas and Friends”) and Conrad Vernon (“Shrek 2”), was born out »

Silent horror/fantasy film ‘Amethyst’ wraps principal photography

20 July 2016 10:26 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Director Jared Masters continues his filmmaking assault as his newest offering, the silent film Amethyst has wrapped principal photography. Read all the details below.

From The Press Release

Frozen in a fairy tale… There’s that moment in some, not all, filmmakers’ careers, that she says to herself, “out with the old habits, and in with the new, groundbreaking forces of cinematic nature.” It’s comparable to the moment a life-long addict of oranges drops them all into a pit, because there are suddenly real Granny Smith apples to be had.

Sometimes a visionary unfolds a new onslaught of creative control, or is unable to control the pseudo-contractions she thought could be perverse without genre-defying Medicare. It is in these docile moments in a director’s life that new blood is born (or shed) on new (however old) subconscious subject matter. Jared Masters has never touched on vampires, sea nymphs, »

Is Warren Beatty’s Alden Ehrenreich-Starrer ‘Rules Don’t Apply’ Too Funny for Oscar?

20 July 2016 6:11 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Warren Beatty is a known entity in Hollywood. He’s a brilliant and controlling writer-director-producer-star who will talk anyone’s ear off. He’s indecisive. He will take as much time as he can get to burnish a movie to glossy perfection. And he’s hell-bent on success. That’s why he’s Warren Beatty.

But he’s less well known to the general moviegoing public.

While he’s consistently brilliant, from “Heaven Can Wait” and “Bonnie and Clyde” to “Dick Tracy,” he’s also known for dramatic box office highs and lows. He’s had amazing successes, such as 1982 classic period romance “Reds,” which won three Oscars (including Beatty’s only win, as Best Director). Over the decades Beatty has been nominated for 14 Oscars, and received the Thalberg Award. But he also starred in such over-budget flops as $90-million “Town and Country” (2001, $6 .7 million domestic), which was “directed by Peter Chelsolm, »

Box Office: Ghostbusters, Sultan, Café Society

17 July 2016 4:09 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Though the new Ghostbusters couldn't defeat the very family friendly Secret Life of Pets to take the box office crown, it was still a win for Paul Feig & Melissa McCarthy company (their best opening yet, just beating their previous best for The Heat). Other winners this weekend: Sultan, the Bollywood sports drama starring Salman Khan, is now the #1 foreign language release of the year, jumping over the Chinese hits The Mermaid and Ip Man 3; Woody Allen's Café Society experienced more demand in its opening weekend than of his films since Blue Jasmine; and, finally, the provocative survivalist family drama Captain Fantastic led by a typically sterling Viggo Mortensen expanded fairly well. Next weekend will be key for Captain Fantastic with word of mouth; there's neither anything like it in the marketplace nor really anything to compare it to in ages (since maybe The Mosquito Coast in the Eighties?) but »

17 July 2016 2:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Few summer 2016 releases have grabbed more advance attention that Sony’s female “Ghostbusters” reboot. During this feast-or-famine summer, its modest initial performance is far from great, but mainly positive.

For one thing, “Ghostbusters” failed to unseat top-grossing animated film “The Secret Life of Pets” as #1. The superlatives for the animated family genre continue unabated.

The weekend brought few new releases, another reason grosses fell short of the same weekend last summer.

But more strong openers are coming, including “Star Trek Beyond” and “Suicide Squad” is guaranteed to soar). But the ongoing uncertainty continues.

Secret Life of Pets Beats Ghostbusters at the Box Office

17 July 2016 1:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Heading into this weekend at the box office, it was expected to be a very close race between last weekend's winner The Secret Life of Pets and Sony Pictures' Ghostbusters reboot. As it turned out, both movies came in a bit under their weekend projections, but it still remained a close race, with The Secret Life of Pets coming out on top with $50.5 million in its second weekend in theaters. Ghostbusters wasn't too far behind, though, with a solid opening weekend of $46 million.

We were predicting that Secret Life of Pets will drop 40%, which would would put its second weekend total at $62.5 million, since most animated movies don't drop as much as other summer blockbusters. Box Office Mojo reports that The Secret Life of Pets dropped 51.5% with a healthy $11,541 per-screen average. This animated comedy has now taken in an impressive $203.1 million domestically and another $50.8 million internationally for a worldwide total of $253.9 million. »
