Last week we saw a new poster for “Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” that was banned by the MPAA. Said poster featured Eva Green in a semi-transparent night gown, so the poster was rejected for nudity – specifically the “curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown.”
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Green has spoken out about the poster and the ensuing public discourse about it:
“I’m not actually naked on the poster. I find it a bit odd. It seems like it’s all just publicity-a lot of noise for nothing. You have so many more violent things in the movie business and this is kind of soft. I’m not naked. It’s suggested.
I find it really sexy, actually. It’s kind of beautiful. But if it shocks people, I don’t know what to do about it. I don’t want to upset anybody. I don’t want to be seen as just the femme fatale or put into some silly box. I hope that people will have enough imagination.”
A new edited version of the poster has made its way online, you can check it out below on the left in comparison to the original banned version on the right.
The film is slated to open in cinemas on August 22nd.
