The "Sausage Party" trailer begins like any other whimsical animated film, like "Toy Story" and "Cars" but with anthropomorphized food items. But we quickly realize that not all is as it seems when the characters become painfully aware of the fate that awaits them in the kitchen. This foul-mouthed animated is co-written and produced by Seth Rogen, who also voices a rebellious hot dog. -Break- Subscribe to Gold Derby Breaking News Alerts & Experts’ Latest Emmy Predictions The Oscars showed last year that they're open to R-rated animation when they nominated Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson's stop-motion film "Anomalisa," but no R-rated toon has ever won the award. Could "Sausage Party" be the first? It's directed by Greg Tiernan (best known for "Thomas the Tank Engine" films) and Conrad Vernon ("Shrek 2," "Madagascar 3"), neither of whom has been feted by the academy...' »
Last night, at 9:30, on a Monday, South By Southwest attendees were treated to a gratuitous showing of food porn that no one was ready for (and no, I’m not talking about my Instagram page). As a special treat, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg showed a very raw, Very unfinished Sausage Party cut to hungry audiences, who ate it up. The last thirty minutes alone will leave animated lovers feeling dirty, shocked and ashamed (in a good way?), as stoner humor mixes with existential insanity in ways that lampoon race, and broach religious understanding. How do you make a movie about food wanting to fuck have a weighty, Pixar-heavy undertone (Dixar filmmaking, as the film jokes)? Just ask Rogen and Goldberg (and their co-writers, Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir).
Reviewing the film seems a bit hasty, given its harsh In Progress status, but welcome to the internet. We’re »

Hilarious! Horrifying! Unbelievable! It's finally here. Watch if you dare, this sneak peek is truly terrifying for vegans and meat lovers, both. Sausage Party is the ever first R-rated CG animated movie. It is about one sausage leading a group of supermarket products on a quest to discover the truth about their existence. And what really happens when they become chosen to leave the grocery store.
This Pixar spoof is from writers/producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, and while it might look like it's headed for an Nc-17 rating, the creators assured advanced audiences last night at SXSW that it has already been awarded an R rating by the MPAA. It is directed by Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon. And it is definitely not for children, so keep them far, far away.
Seth Rogen headlines this adventure as a hotdog just looking to get laid inside a delicious bun. »
Many films have screened at South by Southwest as “a work in progress” — such as last year’s “Trainwreck” or 2014’s “Neighbors.” But when Seth Rogen took the stage at the Paramount Theatre on Tuesday night, he stressed just how unfinished his new animated movie “Sausage Party” would be. “There’s s— that’s drawn by hand,” Rogen said. “You’re truly seeing something that no one will ever get to see in the world.”
Even though it wasn’t complete, “Sausage Party” still received the most rapturous applause and laughter at this year’s SXSW. The raunchy, subversive comedy screened like an R-rated “Toy Story” set in a grocery set with baked (in more ways than one) goods and other edibles.
The hero of this story is a sausage named Frank (Rogen) who is smitten by his neighborhood hot dog bun (Kristen Wiig). But after a supermarket accident displaces the »

On Monday, SXSW audiences had a first look at the upcoming animated film Sausage Party. It’s a scream!
Variety’s Joe Leydon writes in his review of the “work-in-progress” movie, “Sony could have a mid-sized late-summer hit on its hands.”
Check out the Nsfw (or little kids) red-band trailer below.
Sausage Party, the first R-rated CG animated movie, is about one sausage (Seth Rogen) leading a group of supermarket products on a quest to discover the truth about their existence and what really happens when they become chosen to leave the grocery store.

Earlier this month, we brought you the first image from Seth Rogen's Sausage Party, and now the first trailer has been released for the R-rated animated comedy. The red-band trailer starts off kid-friendly enough, with a woman picking up some groceries at a supermarket, but it takes a dark (albeit hilarious) turn once the food discovers the true meaning of their existence. Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan... Read More »

Already stopping by SXSW with their TV show Preacher, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg premiered another one of their projects at the festival. Backed by Sony and Megan Ellison‘s Annapurna Pictures, the R-rated feature-length animation Sausage Party got a work-in-progress screening last evening, and the response was quite enthusiastic. In ideal timing, they’ve now released the first red band trailer.
Following a sausage and its quest to discover the truth about his existence, he joins his new friends to embark on a perilous journey through the supermarket to get back to their aisles before the 4th of July sale. Directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan, Goldberg previously described it as an “existential mock-Pixar movie.” He adds, “we are very, very proud of it. Its our opus. Its like Mr. Holland’s Opus! It’s our take on a Pixar movie. It is very, very R rated.”

In the works for at a half decade, dream projects don't come along any raunchier than "Sausage Party." An animated movie from the Nsfw minds of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, they've finally realized their very naughty, keep-the-kids-away picture, and the first trailer is here for those of us who can't make it to Austin for the work-in-progress screening.

For those of you who have ever envisioned Seth Rogen reconstituted as an anthropomorphic processed meat product — and you know who you are — “Sausage Party” may be savored as, if not a dream come true, then a drug-fueled hallucination without the potentially harmful side effects. A madcap crazy salad of industrial-strength raunch, Tex Avery-level visual inventiveness and, no kidding, seriocomic religious allegory, this computer-animated comedy about the secret lives of supermarket merchandise had its premiere as a “work-in-progress” at the SXSW Film Festival prior to a scheduled Aug. 12 theatrical release. Rough edges are glaringly apparent in the film’s current, not-quite-complete state — indeed, a handful of scenes remain represented only by hand-drawings — but it’s already obvious that Sony could have a mid-sized late-summer hit on its hands.
Naturally, many parents will not appreciate having to tell their young offspring who see trailers and TV spots that, yes, this is a cartoon, »

“What the [expletive] did I just watch?” That’s the first thing I tweeted after the credits ended on Sausage Party. The eight-years-in-the-making animated film — directed by Greg Tiernan (Thomas & Friends) and Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2, Monsters vs. Aliens) and written by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen, Kyle Hunter, and Ariel Shaffir — destroyed the Paramount Theater audience at tonight’s SXSW screening. Still, I can hardly find (printable) words to describe it. Even in its… »
Arriving in cinemas in August is a new animated film in part from the pen of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (The Interview). It goes by the name of Sausage Party, and the pair wrote the movie in conjunction with Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir. Greg Tiernan and Conrad Vernon have directed it.
The film is about one sausage, and his quest to discover why he exists in the first place. And it's an R-rated production, with a voice cast the includes Rogen himself alongside Kristen Wiig, Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill, James Franco, Salma Hayek, Edward Norton, Bill Hader, Danny McBride, Michael Cera and Craig Robinson.
A red band trailer for Sausage Party landed overnight, and thus if you're young and impressionable, it's best you give this one a miss. »
Read More: SXSW 2016 Coverage From Indiewire For years, Pixar has been the high water mark for giving life to inanimate objects, but the R-rated comedy "Sausage Party" takes that tradition to edgier extremes. An unlikely passion project eight years in the making from co-writers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, the movie envisions talking food products in a grocery store who cuss and screw their way through a 90-minute romp. "Sausage Party" plays out like "Toy Story" by way of alt-comics icon Robert Crumb, which is just as ridiculous as it sounds. Even in the wildly unfinished version that premiered at the 2016 SXSW Film Festival, the August 12 release is subversive comedy gold. It's also legitimately well-directed by veteran animators Conrad Vernon ("Shrek 2") and Greg Tierana, who give the world its own loony internal logic. But seriously, "Sausage Party" is really unfinished. In his introduction to a packed house at Austin's. »

Sausage Party, an R-rated comedy about food products waiting to be sold at a supermarket, begins unpromisingly, with a musical number so effing gratuitously overstuffed with effed-up f-bomb adjectives — most of them irrelevant to the jokes being made — one fears numbness will set in before anything really funny happens. But then a crude hot dog-meets-bun joke hits its mark, and within moments of the song's end it's clear that this raunchy, raucous comedy — a Seth Rogen/Evan Goldberg passion project directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan — is going somewhere. The laughs barely let

Sony has released the first image from Sausage Party, and it's also been announced that a work-in-progress cut of the R-rated animated flick will screen at this year's SXSW ahead of its August theatrical release. Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan co-directed the comedy from a script by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, with Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir also contributing. The movie boasts a cast that... Read More »

Typically, 3D animated films, which include such recent offerings from Pixar and DreamWorks as The Good Dinosaur and Kung Fu Panda 3, are aimed at younger audiences, and while parents can certainly get as much enjoyment from such films as their children, more often than not, they spend close to two hours begrudgingly watching a film that wasn’t made with them in mind.
As a change of pace, this summer, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are bringing Sausage Party, a 3D animated film of their own, to theaters, but instead of its target demographic being children, the raunchy R-rated film is strictly aimed toward adults. The first image from this star-studded animation has been released by Sony Pictures (via Collider) and can be seen below…
