Seth Rogen creates a raunchy masterpiece in this first MPAA R rated CGI animated film.
Directed by Conan Vernon and Greg Tiernan, Sausage party tells the tale of Frank a hot dog played by Seth Rogen and Brenda a bun played by Kristen Wiig.
Shopwell’s grocery store has a myth about food items being bought and going to the “great beyond.” But of course, the food items do not know what happens to them once they arrive in your kitchen.
Rogen said via The Guardian at a press event for the film:
“People like to project their emotions on to the things around them – their toys, their cars, their pets,” said Rogen. “That’s what Pixar’s done for the last 20 years. So we thought: ‘What would it be like if our food had feelings?’ We very quickly realized that it would be fucked up.”
With a budget of 19 million, Rogen made box office gold raking in 89.6 million so far.
