The marketing for Billy Eichner’s Bros is moving full steam ahead!
On Thursday, Universal Pictures dropped the longest-ever trailer yet for Bros featuring never-before-seen scenes from its all-LGBTQ+ cast of actors.
Even more scenes of Bobby (played by Eichner) falling in love with Aaron (played by Luke Macfarlane) were released. Moreover, more footage was shown of the instantly-iconic meeting scene in Bros where Bobby is arguing about the LGBTQ+ Museum in a roundtable featuring characters played by Dot-Marie Jones, Jim Rash, Ts Madison, Miss Lawrence, and Monica Raymund.
In this extended trailer, fans finally got to see more of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 13 winner Symone acting as someone who’s getting in a throuple relationship with the characters portrayed by actors Peter Kim and Justin Covington. The new trailer also shows Eichner’s character Bobby trying to toughen up by “spotting” someone at the gym – and then miserably failing to do so.
Overall, this trailer suggests that the main throughline of Bros will be Bobby’s involvement in this fictional LGBTQ+ Museum as he falls in love with a guy who he believes is out of his league.
One of the jokes seen in this extended footage shows Bobby saying, “If we don’t do this, we’re letting the heterosexual terrorists win.” He also calls Aaron a “gay Tom Brady” and hilariously questions Aaron’s homosexuality after the character sends Bobby a GIF from The Office.
This new trailer also touted the involvement of comedy legend Judd Apatow (Trainwreck, Bridesmaids) as the producer and Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Neighbors) as the director of Bros. Stoller is also credited as the co-writer of the movie alongside Eichner.
Bros will be released in theaters on September 30.
