Cinema release cut in the US and Australia


Link Here16th December 2023

Next Goal Wins is a 2023 UK/US comedy drama by Taika Waititi
Starring Michael Fassbender, Oscar Kightley and Kaimana BBFC link 2020 IMDb

Originally rated PG-13 by the MPA for strong language and some crude material. It was then cut and resubmitted prior to release to achieve a PG-13 rating for some strong language and crude material. Presumably it was some strong language that had been removed. The Australian PG rated cinema release was also cut so presumably the cut US version was used.

Summary Notes

The story of the infamously terrible American Samoa soccer team, known for a brutal 2001 FIFA match they lost 31-0.

Thanks to Scott. The short insight has been altered to change the original wording of 'transphobia' to simply 'discrimination'. I can only assume this was done at the request of the distributor who didn't want transphobia associated with their film.

  • 2023 Disney cinema release (rated 14/11/2023)

A little strong language has been removed, the word 'fuck'.

Presumably this was based on the cut US version.

The Oath...

Cut in the US to change the MPA consumer advice


Link Here9th September 2023

The Oath is a 2023 US action romance by Darin Scott
Starring Darin Scott, Billy Zane and Eugene Brave Rock IMDb

400 A.D., in a forgotten time of Ancient America, a lone Hebraic fugitive must preserve the history of his fallen nation while being hunted by a ruthless tyrant but rescuing the King's abused mistress could awaken a warrior's past.

Originally MPA PG-13 rated for violent content and some suggestive material. Presumably the film was then cut prior to release to remove the suggestive material and the film was re-submitted for a PG-13 rating for violent content.

The MPA commented:

NOTE: EDITED FOR RE-RATE. CONTENT IS DIFFERENT FROM PG-13 RATED VERSION, BULLETIN #2764 (1/4/2023). CHANGE IN RATING DESCRIPTOR ONLY. ONLY THIS EDITED VERSION IS RATED.
