Sony To Finally Think Of The Children With Digital "Clean Version" Release Of 24 Popular Films

Nobody tell Frank Cho about this.

Have you had it with these monkey-fighting snakes on this Monday to Friday plane? Have you also had it with naughty language, nudity, and excessive violence in your movies? If so, Sony has the answer for you.

The company is launching a new initiative called "Clean Version," wherein popular films will be released on digital video services like iTunes, VUDU, and FandangoNOW with the option to watch their edited-for-TV versions. The clean versions of the movies will be considered "extra" content with the purchase of the theatrical cut of the films, meaning that if you're a morally corrupt pervert or violence-loving psychopath, you can still enjoy the unedited versions of these films, you sicko, but the rest of us can rest easy knowing Sony is protecting our delicate eyes and ears.

Amongst the films included in the first batch of 24 are the Spider-Man and Amazing Spider-Man franchises, 50 First Dates, and Ghostbusters. Yes, you can finally watch Ghostbusters without having to imagine Walter Peck as a eunuch. Thank goodness!

The Clean Version initiative is launching with 24 movies, but if successful, there will likely be more to come, and maybe other studios will follow suit. Here's the 24 films included, via Yahoo Movies:

  • 50 First Dates
  • Battle Of The Year

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
