Two months ago, we gave you a first look at Pride, the upcoming period film about Philadelphia's first black swim team that includes "plenty of bulging Afros, bulging muscles, and, quite a few bulging Speedos as well."
As predicted, the bulging Speedos turned quite a few heads—especially at the Motion Picture Association of America. Industry censors were reluctant to approve the new poster and advertising promoting the film because they were concerned about the "package" displayed by young Evan Ross, son of Miss Diana Ross, the first Speedo to the right of Bernie Mac. "They actually accused the film company of digitally enhancing actor Evan Ross," an insider told the New York Daily News. "The MPAA wouldn't approve the poster. Lionsgate had to get back to them with the original art to prove they hadn't manipulated anything."
Not really sure why all the fuss over young Evan 'cuz it's all about Kevin Phillips. More of his bulging action after the jump.
Pride—starring Terrence Howard, Bernie Mac, Evan Ross, Kevin Phillips and a cast of bulging Speedos—opens March 23.
