Watch the trailer for Billy Eichner’s ‘Bros’

Billy Eichner is ready to make history. On Wednesday, Universal Pictures released the first trailer for the upcoming romantic comedy “Bros,” about “two gay men maybe, possibly, probably, stumbling towards love.”

The film is directed by Nicholas Stoller, best known for “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Neighbors,” and is co-written by him alongside Eichner. Joining the “Difficult People” comic in the cast are Luke Macfarlane, Jim Rash, Bowen Yang, Harvey Fierstein, Guillermo Diaz, Ts Madison, Symone, Guy Branum, and Eve Lindley. It is produced by Judd Apatow, Stoller, and Joshua Chruch.

In a letter addressed to members of the queer media, Eichner stressed his intentions with the film to the entire cast and crew, celebrating “Bros” as “the first gay rom-com ever released by a major studio” and “the first major studio film with an all LGBTQ+ cast in all the roles — even the straight roles.”

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

“Bros” is scheduled to be released by Universal Pictures on September 30, 2022.
