A theatrical trailer for The Hangover Part II has been removed from theaters.
Warner Bros. pulled the trailer after being asked by the Motion Picture Association of America. The group ensures that movie advertising is run in accordance with the ratings systems, and the video had not been yet evaluated.
“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.
The studio did not comment on what would be changed, but sources said a clip depicting a monkey sucking on a bottle placed under an old man’s sarong would most likely be removed.
The trailer first appeared in theaters last Friday in front of Source Code. The revised trailer will debut on April 15, in front of Scream 4. The film is scheduled for theatrical release on May 26.
