Lucy Starts With R-Rating in Cinemas

Luc Besson's Action Thriller Not Cut for PG-13

French filmmaker Luc Besson is a real powerhouse and pushes 2-3 of his scripts into production each year. Oftentimes, those films are located in the action sector and most of them are not even directed by him. Still, his style is visible in those movies, as well. Besson seems to have arranged with the fact that these productions are often too violent in order to get the PG-13 without severe censorship. Financial interests make that necessary and it can happen that such versions then also affect other markets, as well. At least the home video release is mostly the salvation that presents the uncensored version to its audiences.

Still, it's a little different with those films where Besson himself sits in the director's chair. After The Family with Robert de Niro, the action thriller Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson will start in US cinemas with the "R" rating right from the beginning (for strong violence, disturbing images, and sexuality). That doesn't mean that an Unrated Cut couldn't await fans later on Blu-ray, but this is good news for now.

Lucy starts in US cinemas on July 25th, 2014, while the UK will have to wait until August 22nd, 2014.
