Kevin Smith plans to appeal the latest decision by the MPAA to give Zack & Miri Make a Porno an NC-17. This is apparently the 3rd time the MPAA has come back with the adults only rating and according to /film, Smith says he’s edited it all he can. Apparently at issue is some “thrusting” and some “unspeakable” acts (the quotes are /film’s).
If the MPAA rejects the appeal (likely in my opinion) Smith is still obligated to deliver an R-rated film for release on October 31 and he says he’d rather do the cutting himself.
And then there is Wolfman (4/3/09) starring Benicio del Toro, Emily Blunt and Anthony Hopkins. Reading the recaps of footage shown at the panel reminds me of being back in elementary school with the weird kid next door giving me a scene-by-scene recount of Flash Gordon right before I ditched him, ran inside for grilled cheese sandwiches, Popsicles and Star Blazers cartoons. I grow weary of Comic-Con.
