Ok folks, prepare yourselves for the trailer you are about to watch as it is off-the-charts weird, but in a good way. The Red-band trailer for the wildly over the top Melissa McCarthy film, The Happy Time Murders, has been released. The film is set in a world where humans and puppets co-exist. The film follows McCarthy’s character as she teams up with a puppet in order to solve a series of murders that appear to be targeting the puppet community.

Though the puppets may attract a younger audience, the film is filled with sexual situations, vulgar language, and murder, and is absolutely not intended for children, though I can already see the backlash from parents now. Having said that the film looks to be hilarious. To be honest, puppets kind of freak me out, but the concept of this film is too good to pass up.

The film was directed by Brian Henson (who is oddly enough the son of master puppeteer Jim Henson) and was written by Todd Berger. The film stars Melissa McCarthy, Elizabeth Banks, and Joel McHale. Also appearing in the film are Maya Rudolph and Leslie David Baker.
