Universal has released a new trailer for Ron Howard’s big-screen comedy The Dilemma, responding to backlash stemming from a joke in the original trailer about electric cars being “gay.” In a statement issued yesterday, the studio said that the teaser trailer was “not intended to cause anyone discomfort.” The film, which stars Vince Vaughn and Kevin James, is slated to hit theaters on Jan. 14.
