'Hangover 2' Trailer YANKED From Theaters

4/6/2011 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A new trailer for "Hangover 2" -- featuring a scene with a monkey biting a pretend wiener -- has been pulled from theaters across the country ... after movie execs admitted they failed to clear the spot with the Motion Picture Association of America.

Hangover 2 Trailer

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the trailer for H.O.2 -- which is rated R -- debuted on April 1 in front of the movie "Source Code" -- which is rated PG-13.

The MPAA is ticked because one of their main objectives is to make sure movie advertising is in sync with the ratings system.

A rep for Warner Bros -- the company behind the flick -- tells TMZ, "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."

The new -- approved -- trailer is slated to go back in theaters on April 15.

Are we supposed to believe no one watched this clip before they released it for viewing?

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

I'll try to remember the possibility of thinking of reminding someone to remind me not to see it. Yawn.

What ever happened to the term 'preview'? People live in trailers, some people haul trailers, why are we reinvented the whole english language?

Won't be seeing it anyway. Don't like Zach Galifatass and therefore won't support anything he does.

The first movie was good but nothing spectacular.

Zach Hairball and all his blacklisting, Catholic hating Hollywood buddies have a flop on their hands. Too bad :-)

They needed the horny monkey to appeal to the beastiality crowd. That's all they've got.
