Director Robert Zemeckis’s new film Flight, about a pilot with a drinking problem played by Denzel Washington, has brewed some corporate controversy. Anheuser-Busch is upset to see Budweiser used in the new film and has asked Paramount Pictures to blur or remove the logo when the film is released for DVD, television, and streaming, reported the Los Angeles Times. Alcohol distributor William Grant & Sons is also unhappy with the portrayal of Stolichnaya vodka in the film.
