Bruno Re-cut For U.K. Teen Market
Cinemagoers in the U.K. will get the chance to see two versions of risque new comedy Bruno - to allow younger fans to enjoy the movie.

Sacha Baron Cohen's outrageous new big screen outing, in which he plays a gay Austrian fashionista, was slapped with an 18 certificate by British movie watchdogs due to its adult content.

Universal Pictures, the studio behind the film, feared the older certificate could cause a huge cut in revenues - prompting bosses to re-cut the movie so that 15 year olds can also go and see it.

The film was also heavily edited for the American market, so that under-17s were allowed to view the footage.

The newly re-cut film will be available in Britain from 24 July.

And the re-worked Bruno seems to have paid off - the movie topped the U.S. box office last week (ends12Jul09) with takings of $30 million (£20 million).
