Animation gets crass in the red band trailer for ‘Hell And Back’


With animation so often linked with family-friendly fun, it’s always shocking to see an animated film that’s not meant for the eyes of a 10-year-old. Hell And Back is certainly one of those films, which had its first trailer drop today. From the guys behind Robot Chicken, this new R-rated animated comedy stars the likes of Nick Swardson, T.J. Miller, Bob Odenkirk, Mila Kunis, Michael Pena, Susan Sarandon, and Danny McBride. Here’s the synopsis:

In the outrageous R rated animated comedy from the Animation studio that brought you “Robot Chicken,” “Triptank” and “Bojack Horseman,” three friends embark on a wayward journey into the deepest, darkest depths of hell to rescue one of their own.  While navigating their escape, they provoke a slew of misfit demons, a super sexy angel, infamous Greek legends, and the Devil himself; Hell has never been hotter!

There’s no doubt that this movie is going to be filled with inappropriate shenanigans, but luckily this red band trailer isn’t all blue jokes. It’s balanced with generally clean material, although that masturbation joke at the beginning lands a little awkwardly. The animation itself looks pretty creative, offering an interesting take on what Hell may actually be like. The movie may not be suitable for kids, but there is a good chance adults will get a kick out of it.

Hell And Back hits theaters October 2. Check out the trailer below:
