Couples Retreat in trouble

india Updated: Nov 16, 2009 20:20 IST

Couples Retreat, Oscar-winner AR Rahman’s first Hollywood venture after Slumdog Millionaire, is at the center of a racism controversy after two African-American actors were removed from a poster used to promote it in Britain.

The US poster for the movie, a comedy starring Vince Vaughn and Kristin Davis, show all eight principal actors, Daily Mail online reported. A spokesman for makers Universal Pictures confirmed that the change had been made “to simplify the poster to actors who are most recognisable in international markets”. However, the studio said it regretted causing offence and has abandoned plans to use the revised poster in other countries.
