(KPLR)- Anheuser-Busch has a problem with the new Denzel Washington movie “Flight”.  He plays an airline pilot who’s also an alcoholic.  In one scene, Washington’s character is seen drinking a Budweiser while behind the wheel of a car.

The brewery has asked Paramount Pictures to obscure or remove the Bud logo from all digital prints and any future film prints, DVDs and streaming videos.   A brewery executive says they would “never condone the misuse” of their products.

No comment from Paramount.  A Vodka maker is also upset about being included in the film but admits there’s little they can do about it legally.
