Remember those episodes of E! True Hollywood Story? Well, STX Films has released a new promo trailer for their upcoming R-rated puppet film The Happytime Murders and it's done in the style of that True Hollywood Story show. It focuses on the infamous The Happytime Gang and how their lives completely fell about after becoming famous. I like that this promo offers us a little background on the characters that the upcoming film revolves around.
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 Brian Henson-directed film stars Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale, and Elizabeth Banks. The Happytime Murders hits theaters on August 24th, 2018.
