Hot Scene Cut From Sucker Punch To Ensure PG-13 Rating

And Emily Browning reveals that she’s not that happy about it.

In a recent interview with Nylon, the actress Emily Browning reveals that things get steamy between her character and Jon Hamm:

"I had a very tame and mild love scene with Jon Hamm. It was like heavy breathing and making out. It was hardly a sex scene… I think that it’s great for this young girl to actually take control of her own sexuality. Well, the MPAA doesn’t like that. They don’t think a girl should ever be in control of her own sexuality because they’re from the Stone Age. I don’t know what the fuck is going on and I will openly criticize it, happily. So essentially, they got Zack to edit the scene and make it look less like she’s into it. And Zack said he edited it down to the point where it looked like he was taking advantage of her. That’s the only way he could get a PG-13 (rating) and he said, ‘I don’t want to send that message.’ So they cut the scene!”


Though angry, the actress had an understanding for the PG-13 rating. And it is the only way young girls are going to be able to see the film.
- "I’m torn. I want an ‘R’ because we can get a lot of cool scenes into it, but then I like the idea of younger girls being able to see it."

Watch out for Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch this friday. And I hope it will feature the second Green Lantern trailer!

And good people of CBM, Director's Cut is bound to happen one day(!)

maybe he could make the blu-ray r-rated.

@TheBlackWidow - I've edited it so it's more ambigious. I heard that it's gonna be featured but as with much of everything, I will acknowledge it when I see it. So my fingers are crossed(!)

Why isnt there a XXX porn parody in the works yet? lol

that sounds pretty unwarranted for something so subtle. Sucker Punch can flop as much as Watchmen as long as the audience knows what's coming to them.
WB you are troglodytes.

I'm gona go see this in theaters but I won't buy this on Blu Ray till an uncut R rated version comes out, I like to see movies the way they were meant to be seen by the director and actors, if Emily is pissed then it must have been a big moment for the movie.

I agree with that,but I want 12-17 year old boys to go see this movie.

There isn't any nudity in the movie. Although Emily is an awesome sexy dancer ;D

lmfao, most of the girls old enough to see a PG-13 movie have already been sexually active anyway. So, what's the d 2 3n problem.

You tell them Emily! >:(

This may work in Zack Snyder's favor in that those that wouldn't see the movie because of the sex scene will see it now. Also, with him directing the new Superman reboot, some people may decide to boycott or not give him a chance because of some previous movies of his with sex scenes in them, so maybe with this cut, Sucker Punch can be the movie that helps bring in more of the general audience that wouldn't normally go watch this kind of movie that will also add to the audience that will go see Superman when that comes out.

Optimism - it is seeing a glass not only half full, but the empty part of the glass being full of oxygen.

God I am sick of the MPAA and really of society. The fact that people won't go see an R in this day and age is rediculous considering what society trends nowadays and also what kids are looking up to now. There is stuff like that on TV ALL THE TIME. I hope to see a R version.

I guess when the dvd comes out they make two versions r-rated and the pg13

I see a directors cut coming... Sweet. Why can't studious just make rated R films? Screw the pg13 crap. But then again big budget movies gotta tap into money making ratings which really sucks and bet some studio people want it R but just can't cause they well lose money. Guess I have to wait for directors cut, but they better put it on both disc, I hate does directors cut being separate with the theatrical cuts.

@kirynthemighty

I agree but there ain't alot of adults or mature audience going to go to a release day movie or even go to theaters compared to before, they just go work and go home that's it. While the young adults and teens are the ones funding the theaters. I remember they were talking a out R rated movies when try announced terminator 3 not being R rated. Also it does show that R rated movies doesn't get much money of there pg 13. Yes there's kids playing more violent games but parents seem to not know about it. I had this parent buying the new call of duty game and parents like oh it's just another shooting game but don't realized that it's has graphic scenes, but parents go and watch out for rated R movies cause they know from experience from there youth how graphic some rated r movies can be. Hellraser, terminator 1 & 2, robocop and I know some others from the 80's but can't remember.

Your pic link isn't working.

@xXkryptoniteXx

that's a pretty valid point, but R movies aren't as bad as they used to be, 80's movies used to have a lot more violence and nudity then they do now.

I hate how the older parents who didn't play video games in their generation or only played Nintendo or something do that, I'm a father of two girls who are 5 and 2 years old both of which are into gaming and I won't even play M rated games around them, the older parents/ grandparents need to learn what M rated means for Christ sake.
