Remember earlier in the year when non-MPAA sanctioned billboard for the horror movie Captivity caused a big fuss and was pulled due to public complaints? It seems we now have a similar situation on our hands over in the City of Brotherly Love, where people were quite upset over the recent ad campaign for the upcoming movie Hitman. Residents of Philadelphia are understandably sensitive to images of people holding guns as of late, particularly after the recent shooting death of a police officer there, and the ad pictured above was requested to be removed by the city’s mayor. Clear Channel Outdoor complied, although the contract had nearly expired anyway. Now I don’t mean to be insensitive, but I have to say that the ad seems rather tame in comparison with a lot of other stuff that is probably seen on a daily basis in any major U.S. city. An article in the Philadelphia Daily News described the poster as portraying “a man pointing a gun, with a nearly naked woman draped over him”. Nearly naked? Hmm, okay then. It certainly sounds like an overreaction of sorts, but I don’t live in Philly so I can’t pretend to feel their pain. I wonder if they’ll try to get the movie itself banned next. What do you think, did this poster cross the line of decency and good taste?
