I’m not 100% sold on the new Sin City movie, because we all know that sequels to beloved films tend to suck ass, with very few exceptions.
But I am all for the new poster, featuring Eva Green rocking some dope shadowy side-boobage. Unfortunately, the MPAA doesn’t feel the same sense of excitement, as it has banned the poster from being put up in movie theater hallways and burnt-out-building facades everywhere.
The sheer suckitude of the MPAA has been well documented, and this isn’t the first time its prude members have put their sights on a movie poster. In some cases, it’s justified; in some, it’s just plain stupid. And in some cases, well, Woody Harrelson in American flag briefs. In all cases, though, the banning likely just made the posters more viral — which is why censorship doesn’t work.
1. The People vs. Larry Flynt
The MPAA ixnayed this poster for what could be any number of unspecified reasons. Religious imagery? Bethonged woman hips? Woody holstering his balls with the red, white and blue? Cool poster nonetheless.
2. The Rules of Attraction
This is the MPAA banning a poster that basically depicts what every 9-year-old boy does with his own stuffed animals anyway. Dumb.
3. Zack and Miri Make a Porno
I could see this being one of those things parents don’t wanna explain to their children. But the MPAA should’ve banned the movie altogether for sucking so hard. And not in a good way.
4. Ali G Indahouse
Yeah, I can’t even defend this one.
This poster was banned in Hungary for what should be obvious reasons unless you’re a female reader under 15 whose spent her life on a Mormon colony in Utah. I think they knew better than to even try this poster in the states.
6. I Spit on Your Grave (remake)
This poster wasn’t banned outright, but some versions were altered to cover up all the skin revealed by the torn panties riding up the buttcrack. By the way, If this turns you on and you saw the movie or know what it’s about, you’re a sick, sick bastard.
