There’s a teaser going around for Transporter 3 starring Jason Statham, and it’s awesome, as expected. In addition to the usual Transporter content of explosions, badass fights, and a shirtless Jason Statham, this one has an added bonus – Robert Knepper as the bad guy. Knepper is famous for his sleazy prisoner T Bag on “Prison Break” and more recently for Hitman.
It appears that you can’t post a teaser for your own movie on your own site without attaching a rating to it. The Zack and Miri Make a Porno teaser that we posted last week was pulled from Kevin Smith’s Quick Stop Entertainment site because the MPAA told them to. Smith explains:
As with features, all trailers get rated get rated by the MPAA. The majority of them are for general audiences (Green Band trailers), but trailers packed with adult content (like our teaser) earns you what’s called a Red Band trailer. Well, we didn’t go through this process – simply because, we felt, that since the teaser didn’t contain any footage from the actual flick, it wasn’t technically a trailer. Boy, was I wrong. Turns out all promotional material for any film financed/distributed by a signatory of the MPAA has to be signed-off on by the MPAA – including internet-only materials.
Hopefully the boys will slap a red band before that baby and have it back up soon.
UPDATE: The trailer had to be pulled. See the explanation here.
Straight from Kevin Smith comes the extremely dirty teaser for Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Kevin Smith emphasizes that this is not a trailer, as it contains no footage from the movie. Again, I have to say this is a very dirty teaser and extremely not safe for work. You’ve been warned.
