Celebrating Canada’s LGBTQ2+ Community

Universal Studios has released the first trailer for Bros, a meta gay rom-com written by and starring Billy Eichner. Bros debuts in theaters on September 30.

The film is a major milestone as it is the first gay romantic comedy from a major studio featuring an entirely LGBTQ principal cast. Directed by Nicholas Stoller, Eichner plays an openly gay man who falls for Luke Macfarlane, who appeared on IN‘s June 2017 cover alongside the story “Superhero Envy And The Joy Of Being Out.” Together, they stumble towards love.

“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,” Eichner wrote in a letter to members of the media. “From the storytelling to the casting to the crew, it was crucial for me that the needs of LGBTQ+ people were being prioritized. 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.”

In the just-released trailer, Eichner’s character, Bobby Leiber, is seen on a podcast talking about Hollywood producers wanting him to write a rom-com about gay people. “Something a straight guy might like?” He quips. “Am I going to be in the middle of some high speed chase and all of a sudden fall in love with Ice Cube? Am I going to get butt fucked by Jason Momoa while worrying about a volcano?”

Ts Madison (The Ts Madison Experience), Monica Raymund (Chicago Fire), Guillermo Díaz (Scandal), Guy Branum (The Other Two) and Amanda Bearse (Married …with Children) all star in the film. Judd Apatow serves as the film’s producer.
