James Bond 007 - Spectre: UK Home Video Also Cut
Great Britain can ramp up its worldwide image thanks to the very popular character of secret agent James Bond and surely has some tourism due to the movie franchise. With that context in mind, it's quite surprising how unflattering it is handling some of the films' releases.
The most recent film James Bond 007 - Spectre is another one of those cases. Pre-cut for the 12A rating in cinemas (we reported) - which is a shame in its own right - 20th Century Fox misses the opportunity to correct this situation with the upcoming home video release. As the BBFC database shows, this release will also contain the theatrical version with the BBFC 12 rating.
The only positive thing might be that there now is the possibility to investigate in comparison with a foreign release whether this censorship was applied for other markets, as well, or if it stays a UK-only situation. We'll know more shortly after Spectre is released in England on February 22nd, 2016.
