If you haven’t checked out the latest addition to our Saw II gallery then you haven’t seen the newest poster for the October 28th horror follow-up as Lions Gate learned the hard way that they must get MPAA approval even on their advertising materials, which is the reason for the new poster.
The first, and ultra cool, poster for the film, which can be seen right here in its hi-res glory, was banned by the MPAA’s Advertising Administration citing the poster “is unacceptable under Advertising Administration standards.”
The CNN article giving us this bit of information goes on to say the following:
Lions Gate has not yet commented on the situation and for them to ask websites to remove the material is just another form of unnecessary censorship in a realm where censorship is not needed, as if online content can be controlled anyhow. What is the big deal about a couple of severed fingers anyway?
