Django Unchained - Christian Group is Not Amused
After the rampage in an elementary school in Connecticut that led to 28 dead people (mostly children), speculations are made once again about the reasons for this catastrophe. Apart from the obvious discussions about weapons, the media got their share of blame, too. Especially the Christian Film & Television Commission which is an interest group that focuses its influence mainly on Hollywood, demands that the film Django Unchained loses its "R" rating and gets elevated to an NC-17. Of course, this would mean the commercial collaps for the movie and would most likely lead to cuts.
Quentin Tarantino replied to the press:
Main actor Jamie Foxx has a different opinion on the matter even though he doesn't directly confront his director and film:
At the moment, there's no sign that the MPAA will revoke the rating. The film started in US cinemas on December 25th, 2012 with an "R" rating.
