Work Those Buns in new Sausage Party Clip

Sony Pictures' Sausage Party is the upcoming animated film that we've got a sneaking suspicion will be a late summer winner. The reason we're bullish on Sausage Party? Because it was written by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Jonah Hill, and it imagines a world in which the food we buy at the grocery is sentient, and sentimental, and ultimately aghast to find out that when they're chosen and taken home, what awaits them is hell on earth. That's right; Sausage Party is the rare existential animated movie about food, asking us to considering what it would be like if grocery store food had feelings. It's also raunchy, R-rated and hilarious, if this new clip is any indication. 

So here's the synopsis: Seth Rogen plays a sausage that leads an epic journey to find out the truth of his and his fellow grocery store food's fate. The grocery store is like a college campus, with the food forming friend groups, flirtations and hijinx. They're also all awaiting their graduation to the glorious world of shopper's homes, until Rogen's sausage link finds out what's really going on, and leads a mission to free his fellow foodstuffs. 

With voice talent including Kristen Wiig, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, Michael Cera, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Paul Rudd, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Edward Norton, and Salma Hayek, Sausage Party is another A-list conglomeration of comedy talent coming together to help Rogen, Goldberg and Hill, with direction by Conrad Vernon, realize their story to its fullest, darkest extent. As the clip below shows, Sausage Party goes full throttle in the comedy department.

Sausage Party drops into theaters on August 12.
