Mortdecai Gets Additional Censored PG-13 Version

Johnny Depp Comedy Was Rated R in Cinemas

Apart from his worldwide successes with the Jack Sparrow character in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, actor Johnny Depp doesn't have that much pull with his other movies. His latest effort Mortdecai was no exception as it only managed to haul $8 million at the US box office and only $30 million worldwide - a devastating result for a film with a production budget of $60 million (without advertising). Sure, quality is a big factor but at least in the US the rating could have had an influence, as well. The comedy was rated "R" (for some language and sexual material) and that certainly didn't help to bring the masses to cinemas.

That is a conclusion that must have been realised by the producing studio, as well. And the way they act after that is somewhat unusual. Instead of trying to convince doubting consumers to buy it on home video by including a seemingly raunchier Unrated Cut, they will try it with a more tame version. The MPAA has classified another cut of the film with the PG-13 rating (for sexuality including references and innuendo, action/violence and brief strong language).

The question remains: will a less raunchy Johnny Depp mobilize the masses? Thank God Pirates 5 is underway.
