New The Happytime Murders poster is not for kids
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.
The film stars Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale, and Elizabeth Banks.
The action comedy was directed by Brian Henson from a screenplay by Todd Berger. Henson, Jeff Hayes, McCarthy, and Ben Falcone are the producers.
The Happytime Murders will slam its way into theaters on August 24, 2018.
