Americans didn’t bat an eye at the posters for the movie Wanted, starring Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy. In England, though, they’ve been banned for glamorizing gun violence. A total of 18 people complained about the ads, which was good enough for the watchdog to nix them. Copy on some of the posters included lines like, "We are a team of assassins, the weapons of fate" and "Six weeks ago I was just like you … and then I met her … and my world was changed forever." And they thought the images were tough to take. The pic above is a detail from a larger poster, which you can see here.
