'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.

It wasn't that bad...SHEESH! I saw the preview before I went to see the Source Code at 2pm that day. So are they removing it from the internet as well? It's old now. #stupid.

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.

poor house frau from Team LUNATIC.... all upset that the kids would work with animals but refused to work with your woman-beating, alcoholic anti-semite idol

they offered The Beaver a shot, but he was still being abused & molested by Gibson and couldn't break free.

What a bunch of haters. Zach and co. have more talent and comedic chops than all of the trolls hatin' on this movie, which, by the way, will be a surefire financial hit.

Even more ridiculous: that the geezers at the MPAA get their Depends in a bind when a monkey nibbles on a plastic bottle under a monk's robe, which is what is depicted in the trailer. GTFO!

What a backwards society we live in. They can show the scariest clips from horror movies, even r-rated whenever they want, movies can have gore and violence but oh if there is anything of a sexual nature or bad language it's baaaad. They can use blasphemy but not the f-word excessively and you can spill someone's guts but not show genitals. Go figure.

Yikes - wife still shutting you down? I would have recommended they hire Ox. I'm sure they'd work with baby shaker. As long as she isn't Catholic.

PS: The Beaver said it was the best sex it's ever had. That's a quote.

The ratings system is arbitrary anyway! I'm sure they tried to vet it and the MPAA was busy. Bite me, MPAA.

This movie would have done better (though not well) had they kept Gibson. He would have nailed the cameo. The audience that will see this movie doesn't care about Gibson's bad word. They use them too (trust me). They could have also drawn in the fans of Gibson that wanted to show support for his being raked over the coals by the baby shaking Russian grifter with 42+ attorneys.

Instead they're stuck with a monkey, a hotdog, a pulled trailer and a lot of bad will for blacklisting Hollywood's Catholic whipping boy - Mel Gibson.

That's the truth.
