Sin City Sequel Poster Deemed Too Risquè by US Censor
Forget about the gun and the implied violence, breast curves be Banned!
A poster for the upcoming Sin City sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, has been banned by the Motion Picture Association of America for depicting its star, Eva Green, in a state of relative undress.
Green appears in the poster wearing a revealing thin gown - to use the powerfully erotic words of the censor board, the poster was banned “for nudity — curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown.”
It’s a fittingly controversial image for a film whose first instalment became notorious for its ultraviolence. That film starred Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba and Clive Owen in an ensemble cast shot in eerie monochrome to mimic the style of the comic book by Frank Miller that it was adapted from. Miller also co-directed it, and his gloomy Dark Knight comic inspired the current generation of Batman movies.
