The Happytime Murders is still coming, whether you want it or not, and today, a new Red Band Trailer has been released.
The Happytime Murders is released in the UK on August 27th so, a bank holiday Monday. Melissa McCarthy’s Ghostbusters movie came out on a Monday. Look how well that turned out…
Check out the new trailer below:
The Happytime Murders is one of those things which must’ve sounded like a good idea, but in the final analysis, I’ve had more laughs at funerals watching The Muppets swear a lot, and in this trailer, they’re effing and jeffing occasionally.
The film is set in the underbelly of Los Angeles where puppets and humans co-exist. Two clashing detectives – one human and one puppet – are forced to work together to try and solve who is brutally murdering the former cast of “The Happytime Gang”, a beloved classic puppet show.
It comes from Brian Henson, one of the Henson clan, who also directed 1992’s The Muppet Christmas Carol and 1996’s Muppet Treasure Island, but even if it did have anything going for it, that soon flies out the window when the human detective shows up: Melissa McCarthy.
Of course, things could be different as she also has a drama coming out later this year, Can You Ever Forgive Me?
The Happytime Murders is released in the UK on August 24th.
Also stars: Elizabeth Banks, Joel McHale, Maya Rudolph, Jimmy O Yang, Leslie David Baker, Ryan Gaul, Cynthy Wu
