James Bond - Casino Royale: Uncut in UK after all
Daniel Craig's first mission as James Bond called Casino Royale came out in 2006 and is one of the most censored films of the whole series worldwide. As of today, we could find three differently censored versions. In the US, the film was cut for the lucrative PG-13 rating, in Germany, two scenes were replaced with more harmless material in order to secure the FSK 12 rating and last, but not least: the UK got a censored version in order to achieve the BBFC 12 classification. Fans that wanted the uncut version of the movie had to search for it e.g. in shops in Hongkong.
However, this detour doesn't seem to be necessary in the future. Just like in Germany, the label submitted the uncensored version to the BBFC and they granted it a BBFC 15 rating. It's more than likely that the upcoming Bond collection box will contain the uncensored version on Blu-ray (see the overview here). However, it remains unclear whether a similar move can be expected for the US version of the box. Maybe some customers should think about purchasing the UK box, just to make sure.
The collection box will be released on September 24th, 2012 in the UK and on September 25th in the US.
