First Red Band Trailer for R-Rated Stop-Motion Movie 'Hell & Back'
"Enjoy your stay in hell!" Freestyle Releasing has debuted a R-rated trailer for the R-rated stop-motion movie Hell & Back, from the animation studio behind "Trip Tank" and "Robot Chicken" (two excellent animated shows). It's a goofy, foul-mouthed trip into the depths of hell, but it looks quite fun I must say. The ensemble voice cast includes Mila Kunis, T.J. Miller, Michael Peña, Susan Sarandon, Jennifer Coolidge, Bob Odenkirk and Danny McBride. I'm not sure if they were riffing jokes that got worked into the animation, or if it was all scripted, but some parts are funny, other moments are not. The animation looks great, and I'm just impressed they actually made a brand new R-rated stop-motion movie. Have fun!
Here's the first red band trailer for Tom Gianas & Ross Shuman's Hell & Back, originally from Yahoo:
Two best friends set out to rescue their pal after he's accidentally dragged to hell. This Hell is pretty hilarious, raunchy, and boasts an all-star cast that includes Mila Kunis as a devious demon who leads the two mortals on an odyssey through Satan’s inferno. Bob Odenkirk voices the devil, and Susan Sarandon plays his angel of desire. With performances by Danny McBride, Rob Riggle, Jennifer Coolidge, Michael Peña, and more. Hell & Back is co-directed by Tom Gianas & Ross Shuman, from a screenplay by Hugh Sterbakov & Zeb Wells (the creators of "Robot Chicken"). It was made at ShadowMachine Films. Freestyle Releasing will open Hell & Back in theaters nationwide starting October 2nd this fall. For more info, visit.

Although the humour was not my cuppa tea, you have to respect the animation. At least it will look amazing.

i made an account just to inform everyone how terrible this movie is. i watched a screening in 2012 and it was god awful, don't waste your money. they even had people fill out a questionnaire at the end, guess they didn't heed everyone's advice lol

No, Ari, you're not. I don't know about the poster, but I definitely like the trailer. And, btw, aren't the female characters just nicely demonic, huh?

With all the time and effort it takes to create a stop motion film of this magnitude, this looks terrible...

looks like a late-night MTV tv show. I'm in with the rest - not funny.

There's something about the voice acting that just me cackle like a dumbass. T.J Miller, Bob Odenkirk and Danny McBride especially. I'm watching this for sure.

this looks a tad bit worst than awful

Looks like the creators (other than the animators) think that they're amazing when, in fact they have no more talent than anybody else.

It looks fun, definitely. On my watch list ...

was almost there...til I saw Nick Swardson's name....conveniently left out of Alex' cast listing I might add.

Swardson is terrible but it still looks like it could be a lot of fun

This looks pretty shitty 🙁 When I saw the cast I was hopeful. Now... not so much...
