Eva Green “Sin City” Poster Too Sexy Says MPAA
Ellisha Rader Mannering
Her nails and lips are bright, bold red and her eyes have a certain fierceness to them.
While fans of Eva Green and Sin City believe the poster is the perfect way to promote the Sin City sequel, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, the Motion Picture Association Of America or MPAA does not and they have banned it.
The poster was disapproved by the MPAA “for nudity — curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown.”
Fans were quick to defend the poster on social networks.

The MPAA is strict with their ratings and has no tolerance for nudity. While some people felt that the MPAA was being too harsh and controlling with the poster, the execs are working on a compromise with the MPAA before the sequel opens on Aug. 22.
The Sin City Facebook page released the poster and although the gown Eva is wearing is sheer and allows the outline of her body to easily be seen, it is hard to notice the nipples or the curve of under breast without really looking for them.
Even though the poster has been banned from theaters, it is currently being shared and seen on the Internet where it will get more views than the MPAA wants or Sin City execs may have planned for.
Do you think the poster shows too much or is the MPAA just being too strict?
