‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ Withdrawn From Release in Vietnam
The National Film Board requires Sony Pictures to cut sensitive scenes from the movie.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is not to be shown in Vietnam, after the film’s distributor withdrew it, two newsagencies in the Southeast Asian Nation have reported.
“The film was to be released on March 2, but its international distributor, Sony Pictures, decided not to release it in Vietnam since the National Film Board requires the studio cut sensitive scenes from the movie,” Tuoitre news reported.
What these scenes are is not known exactly but is a reference to some of the sex scenes and images of rape and torture in the film.
The National Film Board confirmed to the VietNamNet news agency the movie’s name had been removed from the lists of upcoming films due solely to the studio’s decision.
“The withdrawal has no connection to the Vietnamese censorship because the film had not been submitted to the national film censorship board yet,” VietNam Net Bridge reported.
This movie was recently banned in India after the distributor refused to cut, or pixellate, depending on whose version it is, buttocks seen in the movie.
