Seth Rogen's new animated film Sausage Party kicks off like any adorable Pixar with chirpy packets of food in a supermarket hoping to be 'chosen' and taken home by people.

The sausages and potatoes etc are very much like teh toys in Toy Story - they just want to be loved.

However, this colourful animation is no kids' film as the trailer rapidly reveals...

A humble Irish potato is delighted to be chosen, with his peers, and taken home, but his joy is short-lived as the woman proceeds to skin him alive.

"The pipes the pipes are calling," he sings in typical Oirish fashion, but then she attacks him with the potato peeler.

"Oh Jesus, oh f***, she's peelin me f***in skin!"

Yep, not for kids!

The film, the 'first R-rated CG animated movie', boasts an impressive cast including Paul Rudd, Kristen Wiig, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Edward Norton, Seth Rogen and Michael Cera.

The wacky movie was created by Superbad duo Rogen and Evan Goldberg.

The film lands on August 12.
