"The sexual act connected childhood and adulthood," King explained."Times have changed since I wrote that scene and there is now more sensitivity to those issues." Leading lady Evan Rachel Wood had nothing but good things to say about her co-star Shia La Beouf after filming the 2013 feature, but had some stern words for the Motion Picture Association of America after viewing the final cut.
[We] decided that was a little too harsh — not killing Hitler, but killing a baby." The scene was shot and included in a test cut, but audiences didn't react as favorably as the filmmakers originally envisioned.Whenever you impale somebody from their back and the blade comes out their chest, there are issues." In the original version of Coulson's (what turned out to be temporary) death, the edge of Loki's scepter bursts through the unsuspecting agent's torso.In the version released to theaters, the protruding blade has been edited out altogether and clever cuts lessen the horror of Coulson's cold-blooded murder, making it less visceral and more palatable for younger viewers. The offending scenes involved leading man Peter Weller and Kevin Page, who played the young executive that gets shot to ribbons during a botched demonstration of the ED-209 police robot.From instances of extreme violence to explicit sexual content, the following scenes were all considered too offensive to be allowed.Jason Sudeikis was just one of the many cast and crew members who praised Aniston's willingness to be a "nympho potty mouth" for the sake of the film, but there was one scene that went a little too far. "I'm not gonna say it." Even with this scene cut, some still found Aniston's character offensive."I think that we didn't compromise the film or our intent, and I think the [new] Chinatown sequence is really well done, and that we should all respect the tragedy and not draw associations to our film." definitively proved once and for all that there's a market for R-rated superhero films. The movie tanked with critics and audiences, and whether the footage that was removed from the final cut would have made much of a difference is hard to say, but it certainly would have made a lot more sense had it been released intact: earlier drafts explained the absence of Ozzy's family and how William Shatner's Mayor Phlegmming ended up out of office.Described as "gleefully profane" by Rotten Tomatoes (where the film has a Certified Fresh rating of 84 percent), the Ryan Reynolds-led flick made over 0 million at the worldwide box office, with audiences going nuts for its no-holds-barred take on the genre. [Miller] and Ryan [Reynolds] got together and wrote a version of the scene that we just said, 'Oh my God, this is too far.' I mean there were so many people offended... One particular scene, set in Frank's testicles, was given the axe because it was deemed too offensive for younger members of the audience."If the puppets did to each other what we show them doing, all they'd get is splinters." had to fight with the MPAA to get an R rating, and while he refused to alter the opening scene in which Casey (Drew Barrymore) is stalked by the killer, he agreed to remove the shot of her boyfriend's steaming intestines spilling out.There was one scene toward the end that also had to be tweaked, involving two characters (Stu and Billy) stabbing each other repeatedly.After host Conan O'Brien asked why the scene wound up on the cutting room floor, she demurred. As the critic for trilogy contains a scene in which a character named Edward is stabbed in the eye with a butter knife while sleeping.Tris (portrayed by Shailene Woodley in the film adaptations) stems Edward's bleeding. Director Neil Burger came to Lionsgate's defense over the decision to remove this scene, claiming it had more to do with overall cinematic flow than achieving a PG-13 rating.
