Based solely on this trailer, I’m pretty sure that The Secret Life of Pets is about a rabbit rescuing his gimp from prison.

The movie’s first trailer seemed so normal. It completely delivered on its title: a bunch of cute pets going nuts after their humans left. But this latest trailer is the first one to indicate the actual plot of the movie, which it turns out is uncomfortably sexual.

Here’s what I know: there’s a bunny named Snowball (voiced by Kevin Hart) who goes to extreme lengths to rescue his “friend” Ripper. The husky hound wears that mask, leather, and spikes outfit even after Snowball’s brought him back to his underground dungeon lair. So that seems to be his actual look. Also, Snowball’s underground amphitheater is the site of an initiation ritual for his new “recruits.” And then the whole thing ends with a cat playing with Snowball’s feces. I’m not kink-shaming any of the animals, mind you; it just shocked me that an animated kids movie would be this hardcore.
