Eva Green Calls the Banned ‘Sin City 2’ Boob Poster Controversy ‘Just Publicity’


I don’t think I saw anyone else address the supposed poster controversy involving Eva Green‘s poster for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For the way I did, which was to acknowledge it was purely a grab for publicity on the part of Dimension. I did, however, get read the riot act for my article headlined “Dimension Makes Up ‘Sin City 2’ Controversy for Press… It Worked“, and I recognize I’m just as much a part of the problem for covering it as those that decide to cover it and ignore it’s merely made up controversy for the sake of clicks and publicity. I have no problem with that, but don’t try and tell me it it’s something different.

That said, Vanity Fair is still trying to pretend this is something big and went to Eva Green herself to ask what she thought about the MPAA’s decision to ban the poster deemed to sexy:

“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.”

Hmmmm, “all just publicity” you say. I hear ya Eva, I hear ya.

Anywho, the approved version has been released by Page Six, though I didn’t get an email from Dimension about this one, they only sent me the rejected one. I wonder why… both are featured below…


The poster was rejected “for nudity — curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown.” Note the lack of under breast curvage and distinct absence of dark nipple/areola circles in the approved version below. Pretty sure this one the MPAA would approve to hang in a church it’s so chaste… amirite or amirite?


This was my proposed idea…
