New, less 'gay' trailer for Ron Howard's The Dilemma is now online
Last month, the first trailer for Ron Howard's comedy THE DILEMMA debuted, and quite frankly, it looked f*cking terrible. But on top of that, the trailer was also deemed inflammatory and has since been pulled thanks to its liberal use of the word 'gay'.
This all happened just last week after an appearance by CNN anchor Anderson Cooper on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", where the journalist complained about the trailer's use of the word 'gay'. Suddenly, GLAAD (The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) requested that Universal remove the trailer (though according to Deadline's Nikki Finke, the group had no problem with it a month earlier), and naturally, the studio quickly folded like a cheap suit.
Now today, we've got the re-issued trailer for the film... but the jury is still out I think on whether THE DILEMMA looks any less 'gay'. You guys be the judge.
THE DILEMMA opens January 14, 2011.
Synopsis: Since college, confirmed bachelor Ronny (Vaughn) and happily married Nick (James) have been through thick and thin. Now partners in an auto design firm, the two pals are vying to land a dream project that would launch their company. With Ronny’s girlfriend, Beth (Connelly), and Nick’s wife, Geneva (Ryder), by their sides, they’re unbeatable. But Ronny’s world is turned upside down when he inadvertently sees Geneva out with another man and makes it his mission to get answers. As the amateur investigation dissolves his world into comic mayhem, he learns that Nick has a few secrets of his own. Now, with the clock ticking and pressure mounting on the biggest presentation of their careers, Ronny must decide how and when he will reveal the truth to his best friend.
