A couple days ago we posted the theatrical trailer for Superbad. While we had obvious problems with the outright claims of being “from the guy who brought you 40-Year-Old-Virgin”, we thought the comedy had promise. Some of you didn’t agree. It’s funny how much things can change when you go from Green to Red.
Someone sent us the Superbad Red Band trailer. What is a red band trailer you ask?
Normal movie trailers begin with a green band, an all-green graphic at the beginning of the trailer, usually reading “The following PREVIEW has been approved for ALL AUDIENCES by the Motion Picture Association of America.” This signifies that the trailer adheres to the standards for motion picture advertising outlined by the MPAA, which includes limitations on foul language and violent, sexual, or otherwise objectionable imagery. Trailers that do not adhere to these guidelines may be issued a red band, and may only be shown before an R-rated, NC-17-rated, or unrated movie.
Okay so let’s check out the red band trailer for Superbad. Be warned, the structure of the trailer is much like the green band trailer, but with the R-rated cuts (mostly language related). Check out the new trailer after the jump.
