Jack Reacher Finally Uncensored in the UK
It is not a rare occasion that distributors in the UK decide to cut films in order to secure a lower rating that attracts more customers for the theatrical run. Therefore, no one was really outraged by the news that Jack Reacher starring Tom Cruise was censored for a BBFC 12A rating. Even though it could have gotten a "15" classification in its uncut form, the distributor opted for censoring two scenes.
Since it's not unusual that such cut theatrical versions end up on the British home video releases, it is always a good idea to keep an eye out what the DVD and Blu-ray looks like a few months later. In the case of Jack Reacher, British customers can relax. Both releases will contain the uncensored BBFC 15 version and will be available in retail starting April 22nd, 2013.
