Eva Green is no stranger to on-screen nudity. The actress has bared skin in a handful of movies and TV shows throughout the past decade, most recently in this year’s 300: Rise of an Empire. It’s no surprise then, that Green’s shapely figure was chosen for a new teaser poster for Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s upcoming movie Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. The only problem is that the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) believes the poster is just too sexy to be released.
According to a New York Post Page Six report, the poster has been rejected by the MPAA for sporting “nudity.” More specifically, the MPAA stated that the “curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown” were what made the poster too risque. The MPAA serves as the movie ratings board for the U.S. and is well-known for its harsh stance toward sex and nudity in cinema.
The poster was released in its original form on the Sin City Facebook page. Though it’s not entirely clear that Green’s nipples can truly be seen, her silhouette is clearly defined by the image’s stylistic lighting.
Of course, the controversy over the poster is likely to get it seen by many more people on the internet than it would have been in a few thousand movie theaters across the U.S. Though the Post report states that the MPAA and movie executives are ironing out a compromise to allow the poster’s release, this type of controversy is exactly the kind of free advertising that marketing executives dream of. The poster in its original form is now destined to become a collector’s item and people across the internet have now been reminded in a very provocative way that Sin City: A Dame to Kill For will hit theaters this August.
