Remember when we told you about the trailer for Hangover 2 being released? Well hopefully you enjoy watching it on your computer screen because for the time being that is the only place you will see it.
At the end of last week, Slashfilm.com leaked this ominous note sent out to theaters :
“Warner Bros. and the M.P.A.A. have instructed all theaters to remove THE HANGOVER PART II trailer #2 from SOURCE CODE and/or any current placements. These #2 trailers need to be DELETED FROM YOUR SERVER.” [Slashfilm]
That’s right DELETED!!!!! You may ask why?
Like the porno websites cached in your computers history, Warner Bros. wants these trailers to never see the light of day because apparently the content on them is filthy.
Since Jake Gyllenhall’s latest flick is only rated PG-13 (the movie rating equivalent of “I like you as a friend”), the MPAA logically assumed that the very sight of a trailer for an R rated move would wreck the gentle psyche of America’s youth.
Hangovers trailers had such unforgivable language like “whore”, “gay boys”, and “bitches”…won’t someone think of the children.
Enjoy this cop out quote from Warner Bros. along with a version of how the new trailer should be:
“In our haste to meet the placement schedule for this trailer, we failed to properly vet the final version with the MPAA. We acted immediately to correct the mistake and remove the trailer from screens.” [All Headline News]
