Hangover 2 trailer pulled from theatres
Los Angeles - A trailer for The Hangover Part II
, which features a monkey performing a simulated sex act, has been pulled from theatres.
The ad was not properly vetted by the Motion Picture Association of America, which makes sure movie advertising isn't out of sync with the ratings system, and the group has asked distributor Warner Bros to rectify the situation.
"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 removed the trailer from screens," Warner Bros said in a statement.PHOTOS: The Hangover
The studio would not discuss what was being tweaked, but insiders said a scene featuring a monkey sucking on a bottle placed under a man's sarong was a likely target.
The trailer debuted in front of Source Code
on April 1. The revised version will debut on April 15, in front of Scream 4
, which carries the same restrictive "R" rating as Hangover. The film opens in US theatres on May 26.
