Sony To Release Sanitized Versions of Movies

Yes, you too can simulate a long flight home with this

Quote:
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will announce today its “Clean Version” initiative, which “allows viewers to screen the broadcast or airline versions of select Sony films, free from certain mature content.” Rather than forcing consumers to choose whether to buy the original or “clean” cut of a given movie, Sony will instead make these “edited for content” versions available at no additional charge as one of the “extras” included with the theatrical version of the films that are part of the program, purchased on iTunes, VUDU, and FandangoNOW.

Sony’s “Clean Version” project, now under way, launches with the following 24 films, all of them including the option to screen the version “adapted for a wider audience”:

50 First Dates
Battle Of The Year
Big Daddy
Captain Phillips
Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon
Easy A
Elysium
Ghostbusters
Ghostbusters II
Goosebumps
Grown Ups
Grown Ups 2
Hancock
Inferno
Moneyball
Pixels
Spider-Man
Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man 3
The Amazing Spider-Man
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Step Brothers
Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
White House Down

I'm kind of surprised it's taken them this long, given how much money I'm sure online censors make from the Won't Someone Think Of The Kids crowd.

I wonder how they'll edit Gwen's death in ASM2.

But some of these choices are weird. Why would a little kid choose "Elysium" when he can pick Spongebob instead?

Because there are grown-ups out there who want to see Elysium, but don't want to leave their safe space to do it.

Weird.

I wonder what they're censoring in said movies... a lot of those are pretty tame.

Pixels could be censored by removing Sandler and Paul Blart, or completely censored and just show the original short instead.

So they're going the Walmart route and making clean versions of all the media they receive. Alright then.

Looks like TMNT: OotS and TMNT 2014 made the list.

Ba-dum-bum...

Friend of mine made a version of Deadpool4Kids, though I think it was more an exercise in art than anything else.

I remember him saying it was made extra easy because in costume you couldn't read his lips, so there was less concern about cutting the dialog.

That said, his kid loves it.

I wonder if this is something the director can control at all.
I also wonder if the TMNT re-edit would improve the movie any...

That would be subverting huge reasons behind the films' existences.

Is the studio that strapped for cash?

Looks like some home schooled Christian fundamentalist kid will end up watching a version of the first "Spider-Man" with digitally erased nipples.

Grace Randolph was this critic who whined on twitter because she wanted a pg 13 cut of deadpool for her young son. Everyone laughed at her and nothing came of it.

Yeah, they are. They really need some kind of big hit. They can't take another couple of all-female Ghostbusters reboots, that'd be the end of them.

Ah, I see.
I think they went the right route with the ratings (it's accurate to the source material and is necessary in order to do it justice) it's just that I'd like a cut version to show the kid. If he was my kid I wouldn't mind showing the films to him, but I'm pretty sure his mother would not approve.

2/10
You've done better in the past.

I'm curious, where is the outrage about censorship here?
Why aren't The Usual Suspects complaining about how detrimental this is to both art and the film industry?

Because this isn't at all like the new E.T. DVDs having guns CGI'ed into walkie-talkies, which was a change Spielberg forced on everyone. You can still watch the real movie if you choose to.

Plus, if I want to give a cheeky answer
Sony
Art


pick only one.
