Chances are that by now, you’ve seen the Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Trailer trailer at least once (if not more) but I bet most folks wouldn’t know that the US trailer, which most of us have seen, is censored. Yes, you read right: Censored.
The discovery comes care of JBM at Cineblog and though it’s a pretty small difference, it is pretty obvious. Check it out:
I can just imagine the conversation between the MPAA and Spielberg:
MPAA: Steven, you have too many guns in that clip.
Steven: Too many guns? What are you talking about?
MPAA: For a General Audiences rating, you can only have one gun and it can’t be pointed directly at Indy.
Steven: Fine. You helped me out on “Transformers” so I’ll take out the guns. But I’m keeping them in for the international cut of the trailer.
MPAA: Fine. We don’t care. Just take them out of the trailer that our kids are going to see.
Or something equally as lame. If you want to check out the difference for yourself, you can do so behind the cut.
