R-rated footage will be included in the Sucker Punch DVD
|NEWS - MOVIE NEWS|
While the MPAA's restrictions feel like the film's namesake to the nuts, Zack Snyder has promised that the film's DVD and Blu-ray releases 'will include R-rated footage'...
Whether we chose to accept it or not, the 'modern man' has neither grown - nor evolved - much since our Neanderthal brethren first walked this earth. While we strut around, suited and booted in the latest line of extortionately priced clothing, our basics instinct remain the same...food, survival and, most importantly, woman (or men...whatever floats your boat).
Fortunately, our approach towards courting the female species has seen significant improvements, despite what said species would lead you to believe. "All blokes are a**eholes" or "...men never treat me right" seem to have become innate catchphrases within the feminine make up, but is it really that bad? Gone are the days where a wife was chosen by a club to the head and a short drag to a cave - although similarities still exist within the gypsy population - yet women feel hard done by. Furthermore, the majority of men are honest, kind and thoughtful individuals - more than willing to wine, dine and look after said female - but our general image is smeared by a limited group of bad experiences.
However, one thing that has remained - despite our best, cultural attempts to cover it - is our raw, animal magnetism. Although we try not to, our first impressions are made entirely on a superficial level, judging a person by their looks as opposed to their personality. Regardless of whether you take shelter in either the science or religion base camps, both strive towards the same goal...reproduction.
So, when Zack Snyder announced and subsequently introduced us to Sucker Punch, his latest release based around the conquests and troubles of a number of scandalously dressed females, it was obvious that this was a film for the men. Yet, in an attempt to broaden the film's target audience - a necessary effort if the film's lacklustre reviews are to be believed - Snyder, under pressure from the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), has been forced to cut and edit a number of the film's raunchier scenes, much to the disappointment of the film's lead Emily Browning.
While the news is bad, with scenes such as Browning's sex scene now absent from the film's cinematic experience, Snyder has today promised fans and movie-enthusiasts alike that all the x-rated, violent deletions will be available amongst the deleted scenes of both the DVD and Blu-ray releases. In regards to additional action, Synder has been quoted as saying that "...the Blu-ray release will feature at least 18 minutes which had to be cut to meet the MPAA's PG-13 regulations", so there is at least some light at the end of this explicit tunnel.
But maybe I'm wrong; maybe I am pigeon-holing the entire male species on merely my own, personal experiences. However, if this is what you're thinking after reading this article, I have but one question to ask you...who are you trying to kid?
