We’ll have to wait just a tiny bit longer for the first gay romantic comedy from a major studio.
Universal Pictures announced today that Billy Eichner’s romantic comedy Bros will be coming out on September 30 this year, instead of August 12, like previously announced.
The change comes after Paramount announced that Mission Impossible 7 was moved from September 30 of this year to July 14, 2023. As of right now, Bros is the only major studio release set to debut that weekend.
Bros is billed as “the first romantic comedy from a major studio about two gay men maybe, possibly, probably stumbling towards love. Maybe. They’re both very busy.”
Bros has an all-LGBTQ+ principal cast, making it truly one of the gayest movies of all time. Eichner is starring, and also co-wrote the script with director Nicholas Stoller. He’ll be joined by Luke Macfarlane as his love interest, Amanda Bearse, Harvey Fierstein, Bowen Yang, TS Madison, Symone, Miss Lawrence, Guillermo Diaz, and Guy Branum.
The movie wrapped filming in November, with Eichner posting the news on his Twitter. “And that’s a wrap on BROS!!!” he wrote. “It’s too soon to say much more but this was a very meaningful experience for me. So for now I just want to say THANK YOU to a crew that worked insanely hard and a warm, hilarious, historic cast that cared so much. I can’t wait for you to see it.”
While we have to wait just a little bit longer to see Bros, we’re not too pressed. The wait will definitely be worth it. Bros hits movie theaters on September 30, 2022.
