Warner pulls “Hangover” trailer from theaters. But why?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Did you get a chance to see that new “The Hangover: Part II” trailer that reached theaters and the Internet last week?

Because it’s disappearing.

Warner Bros. and the MPAA have instructed theaters to remove the trailer from rotation. (It was attached to “Source Code” in most multiplexes.) According to a release posted on Slash Film, the trailers “need to be deleted from [the] server.”

So what happened?

Well, we don’t really know. There didn’t seem to be anything too offensive in the trailer … at least not anything we wouldn’t expect from a “Hangover” teaser. Yes, the clip ends on an oral sex joke. Was that enough to limit this as a red-band clip? And will the next “Hangover” trailer be a red band clip that’s better suited to the target audience?

We’ll see.

“The Hangover: Part II” will be in theaters on May 26. Here’s the trailer that’s currently up on YouTube. Wonder how long it will remain online?
