John Wick 2 is a solidly R-rated movie that delights in plastering the screen with gritty blood-and-guts. In a dramatically key scene featuring a very intentionally nude woman, every shot is awkwardly staged or edited to avoid actually showing any nudity above a PG level. Why?
The casting script must have clearly indicated that the most significant scene for the role called for full nudity.
Is there a business reason to avoid bringing R-rated nudity into an R-rated blockbuster action movie?
Or is nudity known to be a hang-up with any individual with executive authority in this production?
