Tulip Fever, a costume drama about an adulterous romance amid the 17th century Dutch mania for the bulbs, is due out over Labor Day. But are the current trailers TOO SEXY for TV?


Page Six reports:

A 30-second trailer for the upcoming film “Tulip Fever” has been deemed too racy for TV, sources say.

The clip for the R-rated film, starring Alicia Vikander, Dane DeHaan, Christoph Waltz and Judi Dench, features a love scene between Vikander and DeHaan that was approved by the MPAA, but we hear that the footage was rejected by Fox.


Offensive to the sensibilities of heartland America, or just a really good way to get some eyeballs on a lush period piece that has had a particularly winding path to theatrical release? Who can say? What we do know is that the cast inexplicably includes Zach Galifianakis.
