Couples Retreat is All White Overseas

A racially insensitive decision is spiraling out of control for the U.K. release of the movie Couples Retreat. Notice the serious lack of color between the U.K. poster and the U.S poster. In response to outrage over the move, a Universal spokesman said the altered poster aimed “to simplify the poster to actors who are most [recognizable] in international markets.” Hmmm, I can see how Faizon Love and Kali Hawk are not as big names as Vince Vaughn, Jason Batemen, Kristin Davis, Malin Akerman, Kristin Bell and Jon Favreau… still, they had to know that they were going to take crap for this.
