‘Happytime Murders’ red-band trailer is the craziest thing you’ll see today

By  | 

The Happytime Murders, starring Melissa McCarthy and directed by Brian Henson (son of the late Jim Henson) is R-rated and NOT FOR KIDS.

McCarthy plays the lead detective in a world where humans and puppets coexist. When the puppet castmembers of a beloved puppet TV show, The Happytime Gang, begin turning up dead, she’s forced to team up with a sex-crazed, alcoholic puppet.

Throughout the red-band trailer, McCarthy’s character encounters puppets doing everything from proposisitioning sex to forcing her to snort ecstasy.

Elizabeth Banks, Joel McHale, Maya Rudloph and Leslie David Baker can also be seen in the sneak peek.

The Happytime Murders hits theaters August 17 from STX Entertainment.
