Screenwriting team Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen are back with their first animated film, in which the latter voices a ‘fancy hotdog’ as he and the dog crew embark on a mission to return to the supermarket shelf after discovering their fourth of July fate.
Joined by other condiments and snacks, the trailer depicts an all-out cooking frenzy, as a cheerful Oirish spud has his skin mercilessly peeled off and, in a Saving Private Ryan Omaha Beach-style sequence, an Oreo cookie left with his white stuffing exposed.
James Franco, Jonah Hill, Kristin Wiig, Paul Rudd, Michael Cera and Bill Hader join Rogen for this feature-length R-rated computer animation – the first of its kind – which looks to emulate the films of Disney/Pixar and DreamWorks (in style if not tone).
The Superbad and Pineapple Express co-writers boast a back catalogue of enjoyably crass stoner comedies, and we’re fully expecting more of the same from this processed food-based caper. Check out the trailer above and let us know what you think @LWLies
Sausage Party is released 12 August.

Ho-ho-hell no. This seasonal caper starring Seth Rogen is about as funny as Christmas cracker gag.
