Sausage Party: Animated Movie for Adults

Sausage Party is making an impression at the weekend box office, earning a higher Friday total than Suicide Squad.

The adult animated film from Sony brought in $13.5 million on Friday and is expected to ring up about $34 million at 3,103 locations, making it the largest August opening ever for an animated film.

Sausage Party is about an assortment of supermarket food items that devise a plan to escape upon learning that their fate is consumption.

It is directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan.

The cast is lead by co-writer Seth Rogen and also includes Michael Cera, James Franco, Salma Hayek, Jonah Hill, Nick Kroll, David Krumholtz, Danny McBride, Edward Norton, Paul Rudd, and Kristen Wiig.

Despite the R-rated comedy’s strong start and other new arrivals in “Pete’s Dragon” and “Florence Foster Jenkins,” “Suicide Squad” will remain on top of the box office in its second frame.
