Weinsteins at it again. With The Kings Speech!

Recommended Posts

Those of us who were amazed at the treatment Asian film got with the Weinstiens and who thought they had now become more reasonable will be amazed at this fact regarding the USA release of The Kings Speech.

According to Twitch....

"Harvey Weinstein has supervised a re-edit of The King's Speech, removing at least part of a sequence in which the word 'fuck' is delivered fifteen times as part of Colin Firth's ongoing speech therapy, Driving this move is that that particular scene was responsible for the MPAA rating the film R and Weinstein's belief that he can draw larger audiences with a PG-13, which he has now secured.

Though the timeline has not been announced yet for The Weinstein Company to screen the new PG-13 version of the film they will first need to withdraw all prints of the R-rated version from theatres nationwide, meaning that if the film wins nobody will be able to see the version that actually won on the big screen any more."

Amazing!

The film is not exactly one that teens will flock to see anyhow (even though it is a very good film). The film has been released in Canada PG with all the fuck words intact...

The mind boggles.....:tinysmile_angry2_t:

Won an uncut 12A in the UK after appeal.

I think this will only prove a big deal if Weinstein releases the film edited on DVD/Blu Ray. I mean, anyone who really wants to see the R-rated version at the cinema surely already has.

I can't wait to see how people who thought the Weinsteins were reasonable these days react to the eventual release of the "new and improved" version of REIGN OF ASSASSINS they're confirmed to be cooking up. Also, I'm sure many people who would have utterly dismissed concerns about what the Weinsteins did to Asian movies will be SHOCKED, CONFUSED and APPALLED by the mistreatment of a fine, respectable film about British nobility.

I've been saying this for many MANY years now: The Weinsteins should be shot in the face.

Or butchered and cut up, which would actually be more fitting. They're fucking monsters.

Only watchable if Bey Logan provides a commentary track for it!:tongue:

Ugh, these guys are obnoxious fat asses. Anything to make money right?

You'd think after years of making sure Miramax sucked nuts and butchering HK movies they would learn. But nooooo...

Now is your chance Yi Long to be a hero and go in for the kill. These villains must be stopped at all costs crying won't stop them. Why doesn't someone make a petition have everyone sign it and send it to these guys.

Petitions won't work. And I'm pretty damn sure that THIS movie will absolutely get an uncut release on DVD/Blu-ray. No question about it.

Which once again shows the complete lack of respect for asian cinema and it's fans. Cause it would be a cold day in hell before we will get our movies properly uncut from those fat yabbas.

For them money comes first, nothing else matters. They sacrifice the films art for the money..... the Weinsteins have sold their souls to hell.

You don't really have a right to speak though. As we know, you still go out and reward these practices by buying those butchered releases.
