Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 Censored in UK Cinemas

Violence and Weapon Usage Removed for Children

Granted, the teaser hints at something more than what will actually be offered up in Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, which would most likely not traumatize kids in its uncut form, either. But for the British PG rating that the studio desired instead of the available 12A, the ratings board BBFC had some demands

The BBFC's database says:

Company chose to remove a moment of moderate violence (a headbutt) and two sequences of weapons display (knives being opened and twirled) in order to obtain a PG classification. Cuts made in accordance with BBFC Guidelines and policy. An uncut 12A classification was available.

After some of the recent theatrical censorship cases in the UK found their happy end on UK home video, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 is a new case where the fate will be decided in a few months time. The fact that the alterations weren't done during but after the post-production leaves hope that other territories aren't affected by these cuts.

The theatrical release in England is April 17th, 2015.
