Because it should. See, this movie, Valentine’s Day, features a gay plotline featuring Bradley Cooper and Eric Dane. But the trailer opens with Julia Roberts and Cooper flirting, and commenting on a woman flirting with Cooper. Later, you see a quick kiss between Roberts and Cooper … but Dane only appears in a long shot alone.
This is a big-cast movie, and it’s not like you can figure out every realtionship in 90 seconds. But the question is: Has the trailer intentionally misled viewers into thinking the Pretty Woman and the star of The Hangover are the central romantic story … and whether, if intentional, it should offend gay moviegoers.
