 Update: Blade Runner 2049...

India's censor droids show no empathy for the human desire to enjoy a bit of nudity


Link Here 3rd October 2017  full story: Film Classifications in India...Film censors and their cuts
Posters USA - Blade Runner 2049 Movie Poster GLOSSY FINISH - FIL608 Blade Runner 2049 is a 2017 UK / USA / Canada Sci-Fi thriller by Denis Villeneuve.
Starring Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling and Ana de Armas. IMDb

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what's left of society into chaos. K's discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

India's film censors at the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) have demanded cuts before granting an adults-only 'A' rating for Blade Runner 2049.

All the nude shots, frontal and back have been deleted. It was pointed out to them that the nudity is computer generated rather than real, but this did not sway the censors.

There were also cuts to blur liquor bottles wherever they are shown.

Promotional Material

Exiled from their home nations, four strangers from separate corners of the earth agree to undertake a dangerous mission to transport unstable dynamite through the dense jungle of South America in order to earn their passage home.

When the slightest bump in the road could equal instant death, the real question is not whether these men will survive this nerve-shredding ordeal but who will they have become if they return at all?

After the success of The French Connection and The Exorcist, William Friedkin began work on his biggest project to date. Seizing the moment, he embarked on an ambitious and lengthy shoot in the dense jungles of the Dominican Republic and like Werner Herzog with Fitzcoraldo and Francis Ford Coppola on Apocalypse Now, Friedkin battled the elements, came face-to-face with nature and emerged victorious.

Now, 40 years since its release, Sorcerer is regarded by critics and filmmakers alike as a true lost cinematic masterpiece - a feat of filmmaking that encapsulates the revolutionary artistry of 1970s American cinema that is a triumph to behold.

Special Features

  • Sorcerers - A Conversation with William Friedkin and Nicolas Winding Refn (74 minutes)
  • The Mystery of Fate - A letter from director William Friedkin
  • Newly commissioned artwork to celebrate the 40th Anniversary
  • Reversible sleeve containing the newly commissioned and original theatrical artwork
