Pompeii 3D Only Censored in British Cinemas
Since works on the 6th entry of the Resident Evil movie franchise goes slow, director Paul W.S. Anderson had some time on his hands and decided to spend it on Pompeii 3D. Here, he lets Kit Harington of Game of Thrones fame escape both tyranny and an erupting volcano while finding love. Not really a change of pace for Harington who looks like he could have taken his armor from the GoT art department. However, the trials and tribulations he goes through won't be depicted in its uncensored form, at least not in the UK.
The distributor chose to apply censorship after the BBFC initially went for the BBFC 15 rating, a classification too high for a big commercial success for the distributor's taste. The BBFC database has the following to say about it:
It can't be said for sure whether this censored version will only be used in theaters or if it might find its way on a later DVD release (or - God forbid - the Blu-ray, as well). Time will tell and we will look out for it to report it. Pompeii 3D starts in UK cinemas on May 2nd, 2014.
