The Preacher co-creators new animated movie is set to open amidst consensus rave reviews…
The two guys responsible for getting Preacher off the ground at AMC have a new movie coming out this weekend, and while it doesn’t exactly come across as your typical animated feature, it sure looks like classic Rogen/Goldberg material to me.
“Sausage Party”, the R-rated comedy about grocery store produce learning the truth about their eventual fate, is drawing all kinds of positive reviews from critics. As I type this, the movie has a 90% score on Rotten Tomatoes. A brief look at some of the recent reviews shows one common opinion in particular pertaining to the film: consistently hilarious. Not all that surprising considering who is behind the movie, right? Rogen and Goldberg both produced the film, worked on the screenplay, and wrote the story with their buddy Jonah Hill. The cast is itself is loaded with serious name talent: James Franco, Selma Hayek, Edward Norton, and Paul Rudd lend thier voices, just to name a few.
If you haven’t heard about this movie yet, I’ll let the trailer doing the talking. This is the green band trailer; there is also a red band trailer out there floating around that is absolutely hilarious. You might want to head over to YouTube and check that out after:
I mean, how could this not be funny? For me, the Pixar/DreamWorks type animation contrasted with over the top, r-rated content makes the movie must-watch material. Have we seen anything quite like this yet? I’m not sure we have. It goes without saying (in case you didn’t pick up on it yet) that even though this looks like an animated family feature, it is anything but, so make sure you leave the kids at home. Something tells me that Sausage Party will have it’s share of crazy moments that will leave viewers jaws on the floor while they laughing uncontrollably at the same time. Not unlike Preacher!
So how about it, who’s going to see Sausage Party this weekend?
