Eva Green’s Nude ‘Sin City 2′ Poster Just Got Banned By the MPAA
In addition to handing out film ratings, the MPAA - the trade association that represents the six major Hollywood studios - also administers approval the content in marketing, including trailers and posters. While 'Sin City 2' has yet to receive its official rating, it's latest poster is already getting in some hot water, specifically for a nude Eva Green revealing too much skin.
The MPAA has disapproved a character poster, showing Green as the film's titular "Dame to Kill For" because of "nudity" and because they needed to get into details, the "curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown." This means that a bunch of old executives sat around a computer staring at Eva Green naked "for work" (considering '300: Rise of an Empire' and some of Green's previous work, this isn't the first time they've had this assignment). Interestingly, Green isn't even nude on the poster, wearing a sheer robe with cleverly placed shadows.
Reps for Dimension Films declined to comment on the decision (likely because they're the ones who leaked it to the New York Post in the first place), but are said to be working on a compromise that will be approved for in-theater usage. The good news for you is that you don't need to wait for an airbrushed version; you can see the unedited version below.
'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' opens in theaters on August 22 and co-stars Bruce Willis, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Josh Brolin.
