Lionsgate UK Cuts THE HUNGER GAMES For Lower Rating
UK audiences will be getting a slightly abbreviated version of Gary Ross' The Hunger Games when it arrives on local screens.

Rated PG-13 in the USA the original cut was given a 15 rating by the BBFC, a rating that has now been dropped to 12A following the removal of seven seconds of footage "to reduce an emphasis on blood and injury."

Well, yes, we obviously wouldn't want blood and injury in a movie about teenagers locked in an arena and forced to kill one another for the entertainment of the wealthy elite.
