Fans awaiting the February 10th release of ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ in India are going to have to wait even longer.
After Sony Pictures refused to cut scenes from the film, India’s Central Film Board as decided to not release the film as planned.
Generally, scenes of un-suitable content are blurred out in India, but te film board had placed a request for Sony Pictures to cut out some sex scenes from the film before the India premiere, to which they declined.
Sony Pictures released a statement regarding the matter which read, “Sony Pictures will not be releasing The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in India. The Censor Board has adjudged the film unsuitable for public viewing in its unaltered form and while we are committed to maintaining and protecting the vision of the director, we will, as always, respect the guidelines set by the Board,”
The film has already earned nearly $100 million at the U.S. box office, as well as taking in more than $165 million overseas. It appears on its way to breaking the $200 million mark globally, with much of Asia still ahead.
