Brüno is officially banned from theaters in the Ukraine!!!
The Ukraine's Culture Ministry claims the controversial film is "immoral" as well as being "obscene and improper"!!
After viewing, the Culture Ministry decided the film could potentially "cause damage to public morals" and overall, Sacha Baron Cohen displayed an "artistically unjustified exhibition of sexual organs and sexual relations, homosexual acts in a blatantly graphic form, obscene language, sadism, and antisocial behavior which could damage the moral upbringing of our citizens."
No surprises here, considering the former Soviet country banned Cohen's last film, Borat, in 2006 for similar reasons.
The actual surprise comes from across the pond where UK theatres will be releasing a "teen-friendly" edit of Brüno on July 24th for viewers 15 and under!
Almost two minutes of footage have been cut from the original edit for the teen crowd, but we see this as a ploy for more $$$$$$!
Brüno debuted at #1 in the UK!
Which scenes do U think got the axe in the censored cut???
