Ryan Reynolds, Lupita Nyong'o, 'Sausage Party,' and a dozen more that probably will see their Academy Award chances end tomorrow — but it'd be very satisfying if their fine work defied the odds and was recognized
“We were so confident we were gonna sell it, we almost wore hot dog costumes to the pitch."
Is there any chance that the R-rated raunchfest Sausage Party could be one of them? “I know we won’t get nominated for an Oscar, but if we ever had a shot, this movie would be it,” Rogen said. Sausage Party does face some stiff competition.
Planting an animatronic cantaloupe, loaf of bread, and sausage around a real N.Y. grocery store, 'Sausage Party' star heads to a back room with a microphone and video monitors to startle unsuspecting shoppers and then chastise them for wanting to eat himself and his friends.
It wasn’t the envelope-pushing South Park that most inspired Seth Rogen and the creators of the new R-rated animated film Sausage Party (though they did take notes from the cartoon mainstay’s creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, on how to sneak loads of lewd content by the MPAA). “It was mostly born out of a love for animation, and a love for Pixar movies, and DreamWorks Animation movies,” Rogen told Yahoo Movies (watch above) when he stopped by our studios with costar Michael Cera. “Well, that’s what we thought,” Rogen said.
One of the funniest things about the uproarious new animated comedy Sausage Party is also one of the simplest: the pedestrian names its featured talking meats were given, like Frank (Seth Rogen), Barry (Michael Cera), and Carl (Jonah Hill). These talking, sexually frustrated hot dogs have average, all-American names, but they also have their own distinct quirks and personalities.
There are all kinds of sexual innuendo in the upcoming R-rated animated movie 'Sausage Party.'
