The Happytime Murders may be directed by Jim Henson’s son Brian, but that doesn’t mean anything given that this is definitely not a Muppet film. This isn’t even Labyrinth. This is a crime-comedy with darker humor and mature content that isn’t subtle about either element. While the first poster was cheeky about it’s mature tone with the tagline “No Sesame. All Street.”, the trailer was no afraid to point out some more adult content. And the new poster today sums it all up pretty efficiently how this is not one of your parents’ Henson films. Check it out below:
The Happytime Murders stars Melissa McCarthy, Bill Barretta, Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale, Leslie David Baker, and Elizabeth Banks. It is set to hit theaters August 24th.
