Black actors airbrushed out of "Couples Retreat" poster

Posters for "Couples Retreat" got the Photoshop treatment when the movie was premiered in the U.K. On the left is the version that was used in the U.S. and to the right is the one being used around London. Notice which two actors have now suddenly disappeared?

A Universal spokesman said the revised advert aimed ‘to simplify the poster to actors who are most recognisable in international markets’.
