“Wonder Woman” Banned In Lebanon

Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Wonder Woman” film has been officially banned in Lebanon shortly before the film was scheduled to screen in the country’s cinemas reports Deadline.

The ban was prompted by a Lebanese group called Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Israel-Lebanon over the film’s star Gal Gadot, the Israeli actress who plays Diana Prince.

Lebanon is officially at war with Israel and has a law that boycotts Israeli products and bars Lebanese citizens from traveling or having contact with Israelis.

Lebanon exhibitor Grand Cinemas announced the ban was official on its Twitter feed this morning, but the film was only set to play in just fifteen locations in the territory.

“Wonder Woman” remains set to open around much of the world from tomorrow.
