The new film "Cedar Rapids," starring Ed Helms from "The Office" and "The Hangover," features a skyline shot of Philadelphia, that's supposed to be Cedar Rapids, Iowa, 25 seconds into its trailer, which the One Rude Dude blog noticed yesterday. We've embedded the trailer below for the film which opened in theaters Friday. A film spokeswoman did not immediately return an inquiry as to why Philadephia is subbing for Cedar Rapids in the trailer or whether the same shot, which the blog surmises is from before 2008 as it doesn't feature the Comcast Center, actually appears in the film as well.
