Laika Entertainment | Kubo and the Two Strings

CINEMA | 'Sausage Party' – A Godless Food Fight

Seth Rogen | Sausage Party

Sausage Party is a filthy, CGI animated sex comedy taking the whole Toy Story alive concept (mixed with a Finding Nemo separation story and the self-awareness of The Lego Movie) to ridiculous lengths. Producers/co-writers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have spearheaded a truly dirty film about racial stereotypes, religious philosophy, and the basic tenants of humanity using talking food and household products.
