So Red-band trailers are called that because those trailers are approved for only “restricted” or “mature” audiences. These trailers may only be shown before R-rated, NC-17-rated, or unrated movies. These trailers may include nudity, profanity or other material deemed inappropriate for children. None of which applies to Simon Pegg‘s and Nick Frost‘s (Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead) new upcoming alien comedy Paul.
I’m still trying to figure out where this trailer crossed the line . . . was it when the FBI agent fondled Paul’s space alien balls, maybe it was when they all toked up around the camp fire, OH, I got it, it’s when Simon Pegg grabs Kristen Wiig’s boob, well it looked to me like she was grabbing his hand and placing it there.
After watching and comparing it to the Green-Band trailer I kinda wonder why they bothered with the Red-Band trailer. We all knew that that kind of stuff was gonna be in the movie, the Green-Band inferred enough of it to make it plain to anyone not 3/4 baked. Ah, that explains it. If your gonna court the Stoner crowd you have to understand the Stoner mentality, and explain it to them.
With my luck I’ll be sitting at the theater and get passed some lame clove cigarette and I won’t be able to get that taste out of my mouth for days. Damn Hippie movie goers.
