The Official “Bros” Trailer is Decidedly NSFW & Totally Hilarious

The official trailer for director Nicholas Stoller’s (Neighbors, Forgetting Sarah MarshallBros is here, and it’s the comedy we’ve all been waiting for. Bros is also making history as the first rom-com about two gay men to come from a major studio (Universal), and boasts a cast made up entirely of LGBTQ+ actors. The trailer, decidedly NSFW, shows why Bros made such a splash at this year’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas.

Bros introduces us to Bobby (Billy Eichner) and Aaron (Luke Macfarlane), two gay men whose busy lives leave little room to find the time for love. Yet this being a rom-com, Bobby and Aaron are fated to meet cute (or meet funny), fall in love, fight, break up, fall back in love, and, all the while, drop in laugh-out-loud lines that we can’t repeat here. The trailer is filled with whip-smart lines that, while mostly unpublishable, are going to make for a very enjoyable viewing experience.

There are just so many reasons to be excited for Bros, not least of which is the fact that the script comes from Stoller and Eichner, the latter of whom has deserved a star vehicle like this for a while. The supporting cast is excellent and includes SNL‘s Bowen Yang, Monica Raymund, Harvey Fierstein, Amanda Bearse, Jim Rash, Guillermo Diaz, RuPaul‘s Drag Race champion Symone, and The Real Housewives of Atlanta host Miss Lawrence.

And then there’s the fact that the world needs more rom-coms right now, especially one with the potential to be this irreverently hilarious. In short, we’re ready to hang with these Bros.

Check out the trailer below. Bros hits theaters on September 30.

Here’s the official synopsis:

This fall, Universal Pictures proudly presents the first romantic comedy from a major studio about two gay men maybe, possibly, probably, stumbling towards love. Maybe. They’re both very busy.

From the ferocious comic mind of Billy Eichner (Billy on the Street, 2019’s The Lion King, Difficult People, Impeachment: American Crime Story) and the hitmaking brilliance of filmmakers Nicholas Stoller (the Neighbors films, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Judd Apatow (The King of Staten Island, Trainwreck, The Big Sick), comes Bros, a smart, swoony and heartfelt comedy about how hard it is to find another tolerable human being to go through life with.

Starring Billy Eichner, the first openly gay man to co-write and star in his own major studio film—and featuring an entirely LGBTQ+ principal cast, including Luke Macfarlane (Killjoys), Ts Madison (The Ts Madison Experience), Monica Raymund (Chicago Fire), Guillermo Díaz (Scandal), Guy Branum (The Other Two) and Amanda Bearse (Married …with Children)—Bros is directed by Nicholas Stoller from his screenplay with Eichner. The film is produced by Judd Apatow, Stoller and Joshua Church (co-producer Trainwreck, Step Brothers) and is executive produced by Eichner.
