(PG-13: content) STX Entertainment just released the first uncensored look at The Happytime Murders, an upcoming puppet crime comedy film directed by Brian Henson, the son of iconic puppeteer, Jim Henson. The film stars Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale, Leslie David Baker, and Elizabeth Banks. The Happytime Murders comes to theaters on August 17th.
“No Sesame. All Street. The Happytime Murders is a filthy comedy set in the seedy 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.”
