It’s not uncommon for R-rated movies to put out an "unrated" (and therefore sexier and/or bloodier) cut for the home video market. But Mortdecai, unconventional rogue that he is, is going the other direction.
Lionsgate is releasing a PG-13 version of the Johnny Depp flop through Digital HD. You know, to reach all those ninth graders who were dying to see a 52-year-old actor play a character from the 1970s. More on the Mortdecai PG-13 release after the jump.
Forbes reports Mortdecai will be available in a few different forms this spring. The theatrical R-rated edit will arrive on DVD and Blu-ray on May 12, while the R-rated and PG-13 versions will be available on Digital HD starting May 5.
For those keeping track, the original version was rated R for "some language and sexual material," while the new version is rated PG-13 for "sexuality including references and innuendo, action/violence and brief strong language."
