The first very NSFW red-band trailer for the R-rated puppet crime comedy, The Happytime Murders, has arrived.
The movie is very dark and very vulgar, but it sure does look like a lot of fun!
The human characters in the story are played by Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale, and Elizabeth Banks, who you’ll see as a stripper in the trailer.
No Sesame. All Street. The Happytime Murders is a filthy comedy set in the underbelly of Los Angeles where puppets and humans coexist. Two clashing detectives with a shared secret, one human (Melissa McCarthy) and one puppet, are forced to work together again to solve the brutal murders of the former cast of a beloved classic puppet television show.
The Happytime Murders will hit theaters on August 17, 2018.
