New Red Band Trailer for the Dark Rom-Com I Love You Phillip Morris
10.23.10 by Ryan
I Love You Phillip Morris hasn't had an easy ride to theaters. After a successful debut at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, the dark and risque romantic comedy from Bad Santa screenwriters John Requa and Glenn Ficarra has had a difficult time finding distribution in the U.S., suffering through several delays (though it has already made $18 million overseas and has a 79% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes).
Now that Roadside Attractions has picked up the movie for distribution in the U.S. and Canada, a red band trailer has been released, presumably showing what all the fuss has been about. The movie follows Jim Carrey as a gay con man who falls for the love of his life (Ewan McGregor) while in prison. The trailer is NSFW, but the bad language and sexual situations may offer a glimpse as to why so many studios shied from releasing the movie.
