“Sin City 2” Poster Too Risqué for MPAA

The MPAA – the Motion Picture Association of America – has deemed one of the upcoming posters for Frank Miller’s “Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For” as too risqué for public advertising. Their reasoning? “nudity — curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown.” The poster features Eva Green as Ava Lord in a sheer robe wielding a gun.

The distributors Dimension Films did not make any comments, however executives are reworking the poster in time for the movie’s release on Aug. 22. The MPAA should not be shocked at the “Sin City” franchise using sex or violence in their marketing- all they have to do is crack open the graphic novel. If the posters were visually lifted straight from the comics (as the first film adaptation faithfully was) there’d be a much bigger problem. Check out the documentary “This Film Is Not Yet Rated” to learn more about the MPAA’s often unjustifiable standards for their rating systems.
