The MPAA once again proved their incompetence and ineptitude by pulling a trailer they’d previously approved for The Hangover: Part II. JoBlo reports that “Warner Bros. sent an urgent notice to all theater owners notifying them that all copies of the trailer “need to be destroyed” and all current placements, including and especially Source Code, need to be removed immediately.” Warner Bros. plans to release a “new” all audiences trailer attached to Scream 4. That’s right: the studio is releasing an all-audiences trailer attached to an R-rated movie.
Since the MPAA can’t remove or destroy the trailer from the Internet, hit the jump to watch it and discuss what parts you think were objectionable to horrified parents who thought watching Jake Gyllenhaal repeatedly blown to bits was wholesome family entertainment. The Hangover: Part II opens May 26th.
Here’s the official synopsis for The Hangover: Part II:
“The Hangover Part II” is director Todd Phillips’ follow-up to 2009’s smash hit “The Hangover,” which became the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all-time and also won the Golden Globe for Best Film – Comedy or Musical. Reprising their roles from “The Hangover,” Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis, and Justin Bartha star in the film. Jeffrey Tambor, Ken Jeong and Mike Tyson also rejoin the cast. In “The Hangover Part II,” Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) travel to exotic Thailand for Stu’s wedding. After the unforgettable bachelor party in Las Vegas, Stu is taking no chances and has opted for a safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch. However, things don’t always go as planned. What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can’t even be imagined.
