There’s nothing like a little controversy to raise awareness of your movie.
So today the Motion Picture Association of America – the conglomeration of studios and production companies that oversee the ratings process for movies – apparently turned thumbs down on the character poster for Eva Green in “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.”
The MPAA’s objections, according to Deadline.com?
“For nudity — curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown.”
You can almost hear the nervous stammering and imagine the sweaty palms of some guy in the MPAA office as the whole matter was adjudicated and that verdict was being prepared for release.
Anyway, the movie version of Frank Miller’s comic comes out on Aug. 22.
Hopefully this whole ugly mess will be behind us by then.
