 To paraphrase John Amos in Die Hard II: They are a bunch of a$$holes, they're just our kind of a$$holes.

I agree with Wiseguy here.  It's not really "self-censoring" in that Disney won't let them say it.  It's pretty common for people to actually say "A-holes" or "f you" in everyday conversation rather than full on cursing.  You could even compare it to people who actually say "brb" or "lol".  Now that I find annoying as hell.  This instance doesn't bother me.

After debuting Tuesday on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” the footage for the upcoming outer space adventure attracted 88,000 mentions across Twitter, Facebook and various blogs in a 12-hour period between 11 p.m. EST until 11 a.m. EST. By way of contrast, in the first 24 hours following their trailer debuts, “Man of Steel” attracted 75,000 social mentions, and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ inspired 96,000 mentions — and those were released at a reasonable hour.

 The difference between A-holes and Assholes could be a PG-13 rating rather than an R.  No comic book blockbuster movie looking to net a cool billion wants an R.  

I like the funny tone of the trailer and hope it runs through the whole movie (don't think this tale should be taken too seriously...prefer that it be a fun adventure).  I'd be surprised if GotG didn't do well at the box office.  I suspect kids (of all ages will eat this up) and this movie will generate strong sales of  printed T-shirts, books, games, toys, collectibles, and the like...

I'm not a comic book guy per se (I do like a lot of comic book art...but I haven't read a comic in 25 years)...so i don't get caught up in the Marvel vs DC stuff (it seems silly and irrelevant to me).   

I enjoy the way the producers, screen writers and directors of these movies are changing the mythology of these modern day fairy tales and ratcheting up the intellectual level to make them more palatable for the masses in 2014 (and beyond).  I'm impressed with little things like having Batman change his voice so people won't know he's Bruce Wayne or removing Kal-El's red panties and cape and changing that egotistical "S" on his chest into a Kryptonian insignia for Hope and all the other smart changes they're making in other genre flicks.

This could be really funny

 Actually, a$$holes doesn't give a film an R rating. I have worked on actual film sets. One or two uses of the word a$$hole will not earn an R rating. Only major profanity that is considered very harsh language will earn an R rating, usually profanity of a sexual nature. If a movie has the word a$$hole everywhere, it is more likely to draw an R rating, but not always. It depends on the context. If the word is used only as an expletive without sexual connotations, then it will get a PG-13 rating. Once or twice, more often than not, will receive a PG-13. A PG-13 movie can even have the word f**k spoken at least once as long as it is not sexual in nature. Sorry for the rant, as someone who has worked in the film business I find it a responsibility to set people straight regarding the film ratings.

Great perspective, death4sale. It's helpful to know that stuff.

One line won't make or break a movie for me. Besides, it sounds like they just used that take for the green band trailer (and probably future network TV airings), which makes sense.

Not that I actually care about the line, but, Alot of the time, scenes are filmed specifically for the trailers and don't actually make it into the finished film.  And lines sometimes get changed so that they can show the trailer on TV.  I frankly don't care about it, not a deal breaker for me.  This looks good and fun because I don't know much about these characters so I don't care if they stray from the sorce or if they nail it.  This looks more like a franchise that Disney is hoping to cash in on.  Talking Raccoons and Trees.  They are also planning a Cartoon series to air right around the same time.  Brilliance.

jonniej1017 2/20/2014 11:06:51 PM

BOYCOTT.  I mean come on guys.. for someone to watch that trailer and say that it was silly or it was ruined by the guy saying A-hole.. there is something seriuosly wrong with you!!  let me guess... U seem to find the negative in eveything. when someone tells u a feel-good story you turn around and talk about someone dying on the news i bet???  bet u any amount of money!!!
