Yes, dialogue referring to the Hindu God Krishna was removed from the final cut of the film. From this article (which I've edited down somewhat); Hindus are thankful to 20th Century Fox and Director Bryan Singer for deleting reference to Lord Krishna in the movie “X-Men: Apocalypse”.   Hindu statesman Rajan Zed wrote to 20th Century Fox in ...

Because that's how people naturally talk, and they don't want to use bowdlerized curses (Take that Farscape/BSG!). From the Show Runner Sera Gamble's twitter. I'm sure Syfy, as a non-broadcast network, knows it can use curses with impunity, but choses not to. They probably have some internal rules about context as well (fleeting curses vs sex references ...

Probably because Gina Carano asked them to. I couldn't find any statements from her one way or the other (I doubt anyone is brave enough to ask her to her face), but it's probably the same reason that any other actress does or doesn't get naked in a movie. Actresses in movies that have to do sex scenes agree to do so upfront, and typically require ...

So, this is really three questions, but they're kinda related to "how do talk show appearances work", so I'll try to answer them all. (You probably should split these up into multiple questions and I can split my answer accordingly.) First, the bit with the $1,000 was almost certainly a gimmick, and Ford probably gave the money back before he left. There ...

Situation in Germany It is not forbidden to show Nazi symbols in movies. They are shown regularly and not edited out. They are also used in local productions. The situation was different a few decades ago. Jurisdiction had a stricter approach to the legal situation and assumed that any depiction of Nazi symbols was illegal. This lead to cuts, blurs, or ...

As explained on Wikipedia WRT Austria (but similar exceptions are present in other countries for obvious reasons): There are legal exceptions for works of Art (including books, films, Theatre Performances, computer games, and educational/memorial public exhibitions, etc.), these however do not apply if the respective work promotes National ...

Actresses not being comfortable with nude scenes is one way to see it. But, in the scene, one has to notice that Colossus shies away when Angel's breast was exposed. Colossus has a dad-like mentality of viewing things, and is more towards the conservative side of things. Colossus covers his face when the breast was exposed. And the director did a great ...

The main theatrical release of Deadpool in the U.S. was targeted to be Rated R by the MPAA. It's been said that it pushes the boundaries of what's allowed to be Rated R. The actor T.J. Miller, who plays Weasel in the film, has already confirmed that there will be an unrated cut for home release: Twitter user by the name of James (From Essex) uploaded a ...

From your description of what's going on, I strongly suspect the censorship is happening downstream of the provider. Premium cable channels have very few regulations as to what they're allowed to air, at least in the US where most of them are based. Since they don't broadcast over the air, they don't fall under FCC jurisdiction. Typically they will stop ...

TV shows want to earn as much money as they can. Whenever they have an episode with products from different brands, they always ask if that brand wants to advertise in the episode. If they do, the TV show gets free money. If not, then the they blur it out so that they don't give out free advertising. However, sometimes this is not the case. Sometimes, some ...
