R-rated puppet flick Happytime Murders gets release date

The last word we brought you guys on the director Brian Henson's R-rated puppet noir murder mystery project THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS was that the flick had scored itself a lead with Mellisa McCarthy.


Since then news has been quit on the project until today that is when we have finally received word the flick has a release date! Yes, the noir puppet flick (never thought I'd type that) is set to be unleashed on the world August 17th, 2018.

The film, for those who might not know, is "set in the underbelly of Los Angeles where puppets and humans coexist. Two clashing detectives, one human (McCarthy) and one puppet, are forced to work together to try to find out who is brutally murdering the former cast of “The Happytime Gang,” a beloved classic puppet show."

You can check the flick's official synopsis below, as well as some concept art, and then make sure to let us know what you think of THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!


The puppet stars of the iconic TV show The Happytime Gang are some of the biggest celebrities around. But off-camera, the family-friendly cast leads the kinds of lives that would make a tabloid writer blush. When the Happytime Gang stars begin to be mysteriously murdered, two mismatched detectives – one a type-A, take-no-prisoners human with a secret and the other a crass, hard-drinking puppet with a connection to one of the victims – must put aside their huge differences to stop the killings and catch the culprit, all the while trying to resist the temptation to murder each other.

THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS hits screens August 17th, 2018.
