Step Up 4 is censored in British cinemas
Dance movies are in although the recipe is always the same. Take beautiful people, a love story, current chart music and fancy dance choreos and the next potential blockbuster is made. The most successful franchise today is Step Up and it gets its 4th installment this summer.
In the US, Step Up 4: Miami Heat started this weekend and the UK will get it on August 10th, 2012 in cinemas. However, the British cinemagoers have to put up with cuts that were required in order to secure a lower rating. While the MPAA rated it PG-13, the BBFC initially gave it a "12". Universal Pictures UK wanted a "PG", though, and therefore, it had to censor Step Up 4.
In total, this sums up to 5 seconds of material left out. This also means that it's the first film of the franchise that was censored for a lower classification.
