The Motion Picture Association of America axes the poster for "Saw 2" featuring severed fingers as the Roman numerals
Instead of raising its thumbs, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) tends to give thumbs down to the poster for the upcoming horror sequel "Saw 2," which features severed fingers as the Roman numerals. "Unacceptable," that's how the MPAA perceived the already sent out advance poster with the graphic image to online media.
In its further explanation, the organization said briefly that the poster had not cleared the image and had asked the distributor to recall the artwork. Marilyn Gordon, director of the MPAA's Advertising Administration, added "if her department had been able to review the one-sheets before they were disseminated, it would have deemed the materials for the film Saw 2 that display dismembered fingers is unacceptable."
