Eerste trailer voor Billy Eichner’s gay rom-com BROS

Universal Pictures presenteert dit najaar BROS, de eerste romantische komedie van een grote studio over twee homoseksuele mannen die heel misschien, mogelijk, wellicht, per ongeluk de ware liefde weten te vinden. Eventueel. Ze zijn namelijk nogal druk bezet. De film bevat een volledige cast van LGBTQ+-acteurs. Bekijk hieronder de trailer voor de film BROS

De film is de eerste homo-romantische komedie van een grote studio met een volledig LGBTQ-hoofdcast. Eichner speelt een openlijk homoseksuele man die verliefd wordt op Luke Macfarlane. Samen strompelen ze naar de liefde. In een begeleiding bericht bij de trailer sprak Eichner de LHBTQ gemeenschap toe. Hij schreef:

Hi! It’s your very gay friend Billy Eichner here. This is a very exciting day! It is my pleasure — and truly one of the most thrilling moments of my life — to share the world premiere of the first trailer for my movie, BROS, with you. Specifically, you. From the very beginning of developing BROS, I let everyone involved know that, while I wanted to make a movie that was hilarious and relatable to everyone, first and foremost I wanted to make a movie that felt authentic for the LGBTQ folks that the movie is about — and who have been so profoundly underserved by Hollywood over the years, particularly the major movie studios. From the storytelling to the casting to the crew, it was crucial for me that the needs of LGBTQ+ people were being prioritized.

To that end, I asked that LGBTQ+ folks and media outlets be given this exclusive first look at the film. I’ve been an out performer since the first time I stepped on a comedy stage in NY over 20 years ago. And while it’s insane to me that it took this long to get this movie made, it’s still incredibly exciting to me — and a real sign of progress — that the same studio making movies like “Jurassic World” and “The Fast and the Furious” is also releasing this R rated gay rom with an all LGBTQ+ cast, and with as much passion and enthusiasm as they release those other films. It’s taken way too long. I wish we had a movie like BROS when I was a kid – but I’m so excited and proud that this day has finally come!

As you know, BROS is historic in several ways. It’s the first gay rom ever released by a major studio, it’s the first major studio film with an all LGBTQ+ cast in all the roles — even the straight roles — and apparently I’m the first openly gay man to ever write and star in his own major studio film, which is bizarre and infuriating but somehow true. But aside from all the historic statistics attached to it, what I wanted most of all was to make an authentic, hilarious and heartfelt film about what it’s like to be a single adult gay man attempting a relationship in 2022. I’m prouder of it than anything I’ve ever done – and I hope you’ll be proud of it too.

On that note, I hope you enjoy this first look at BROS. Thank you for all the support over the years, and especially now. This movie is a long time coming. But here we are. The era of BROS is upon us!

Love and thanks,

Billy E.

De combinatie van het komische brein van Billy Eichner (Billy on the Street, The Lion King, Difficult People, Impeachment: American Crime Story) en het meesterschap van filmhitmakers Nicholas Stoller (de Neighbors-films, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) en Judd Apatow (The King of Staten Island, Trainwreck, The Big Sick) heeft geleid tot BROS, een slimme, komische zwijmelfilm over de zoektocht naar seks, liefde en romantiek te midden van alle waanzin.

De hoofdrol in BROS wordt gespeeld door Billy Eichner. Andere rollen zijn er voor Harvey Fierstein, Bowen Yang, Luke Macfarlane, Symone, Miss Lawrence, Guillermo Diaz, Benito Skinner. De film is geregisseerd door Nicholas Stoller, die samen met Eichner voor het scenario tekende. BROS is geproduceerd door Judd Apatow, Stoller en Joshua Church (co-producent Trainwreck, Step Brothers). Uitvoerend producent is Eichner.

 De film BROS draait vanaf 27 oktober 2022 in Nederland in de bioscoop.
