Billy Eichner Writes & Stars in Gay Romantic Comedy ‘Bros’ Trailer
“Maybe you’re both bottoms and that’s the problem.” Universal Pictures has revealed the first official trailer for Bros, a new romantic comedy from filmmaker Nick Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek, The Five-Year Engagement, Neighbors). This fall, Universal proudly presents the very first romantic comedy from a major studio about two gay men maybe, possibly, probably, stumbling towards love. Maybe. They’re both very busy. Starring Billy Eichner, the first openly gay man to co-write and star in his own major studio film, described as “a smart, swoony and heartfelt comedy about finding sex, love and romance amidst the madness.” The big cast includes Luke Macfarlane, Jim Rash, Bowen Yang, Ts Madison, Guillermo Díaz, Miss Lawrence, Harvey Fierstein, and Symone. This is a hilarious meta trailer that rips apart Hollywood for even trying to have Eichner make a gay romcom, but then gets into some of the craziness with some real footage. Looks cute! And raunchy af. No holes barred here! This is going to be wild.
