The MPAA Bans ‘Especially Bad’ ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’ Poster Featuring Eva Green

The Motion Picture Association of America is less than pleased about a new poster for directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s new Sin City film adaptation, A Dame to Kill For.

The poster depicts the title character, Ava Lord, played by actress Eva Green, wearing a sheer gown that doesn’t really cover all that much. Specifially, the MPAA complained about  the “curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown.”

Reading a Frank Miller comic would probably make the MPAA’s collective head explode.

The studio behind the film, Dimension, is reportedly working on a compromise with the MPAA to make some changes and get the poster approved. (Of course, it released the uncensored poster to the New York Post to drum up some extra attention.)

It’s probably lucky for Dimension that Miller and Rodriguez aren’t using pages from the comic itself to promote the movie, since Ava is generally naked throughout. (The male lead, Dwight, is naked a good amount, too. Also: Eyes get ripped out, arms get stabbed, heads get shot, and there’s a lot of general mayhem.) This is tame compared to most of that.

The film itself isn’t yet rated. There’s a good chance that Miller and Rodriguez will have to endure some further wrangling with the MPAA to bring the movie down to a theater-friendly R, though the first movie managed to avoid being slapped with an NC-17 by making its violence so stylized. Clearly, the sequel will retain the look and feel of its predecessor (which is very similar to the look and feel of the comic), so maybe it won’t be too bad of a fight.

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens August 22.
