Identity Thief Gets Unrated Version in the US
The comedy Identity Thief offers a team-up of Jason Bateman (Horrible Bosses) and Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids). In the US, the MPAA gave the movie the "R" rating (for sexual content and language) for the theatrical release. With a budget of $35 million, the film was able to gain a box office of $130 million in the US alone.
And since that already means big business for the production company, they try to squeeze a bit more money out of the movie by throwing in an Unrated Version on the upcoming DVD/BD releases. Of course, the additional material will be too extreme for cinemas, as always. Who'd think that it might be a marketing stunt. The comparison will shed a light on that soon enough, though.
The release date in the US is June 4th, 2013.
