I thought I was done with trailer reactions this week. But today the Red-Band trailer for The Happytime Murders hit the internet and it's side-splittingly funny! This does for muppets what Team America: World Police did for marionettes.
When a serial killer begins targeting the cast of an 80's TV show - The Happytime Gang - the brother of one of the victims becomes the prime suspect. Now, disgraced ex-cop turned Private Investigator Phil Philips (Bill Barretta) must team up with his former partner, Detective Connie Edwards (Melissa McCarthy) and out-manoeuvre both the Police and the FBI if he's going to catch his brother's killer.
The Happytime Murders is directed by Jim Henson's son Brian, and is the first movie produced by Henson Alternative. Described as a neo-noir puppet crime action comedy, the movie looks to be a hilarious take on the buddy cop/detective drama. It's very crude, rude and deals with some very adult themes in laugh-out-loud fashion. Don't forget to watch out for Henson's innovative use of Silly String. But despite all that, this is still a muppet movie, although you wouldn't want to show it to your kids!
This is one of those trailers that you have to see to believe. But if you like Team America: World Police, South Park, Family Guy or anything similar, you're likely to love this...we certainly did.
The Happytime Murders hits cinemas on 24/08/18.
