The trailer first appeared in front of the movie Source Code on April 1st. The trailer for the R rated movie didn’t sit well with some theatergoers of the PG-13 rated Gyllenhaal film.
The MPAA for their part likes to ensure that movie trailers and their ratings systems are in tow with the ratings for the movies they are preceding.
A Warner Bros. Rep told TMZ on Wednesday:
“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.”
A new and approved trailer will begin airing on April 15.
