'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.

Tellthetruth's last post ftw.
Convicted rapists are OK for cameo's, as long as they don't say anything anti-semetic.

I dont know what they put up such a stink for, I seen the trailer online and it wasnt bad it showed the water bottle being put in his pants and I thought the trailor was funny cant wait to see the movie. They need to not be worried about this when we have real problems going on in the economy like $4 for gas come on people lets get practical.

I just seen the preview. Looked funny. I don't see what the big deal is. So the monkey was licking a bottle under another mans robe. So what? Wow, some people sure can be anal. Lighten up for crying out loud. : ) I thought it was funny as hell and can't wait to see it.

This will do big business. Comedies for adults are way too rare these days. Everything is watered down to PG-13 land.

movies that have to stoop to vulgar cheap shots are not confident about the acting or the story and a trying to (and do) appeal to the 16yr old kids who will watch anything that has sexual content. the actors (i use that term losely) are old guys and just pitiful. and would like to say iam so tired of people at awards kissing same sex people, it so over and just makes them look foolish. if they were gay that would be fine, but the staight people have over worked it. now you can call me names for my opinons. have a good day!

They want to make sure the advertising is in sync with the ratings system? What the hell does that mean? The movie's rated R so to be in sync shouldn't the trailer be rated R? The MPAA is run by a bunch of idiots.

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.
