Last 10 minutes???


UPDATE (18th May)
No cut to The Da Vinci Code

Film Censorship Board announced on Wednesday that "The Da Vinci Code'' can be screened without the cuts that church groups had requested.

"It can be screened uncut" Pol Maj Gen Somwong Lipipun, deputy commissioner of the Central Investigation Bureau and chairman of committee said.

The Board supported releasing the movie uncut by a vote of 6-5, he said.

Its board included representatives of the movie's distributors, as well as persons representing the Christian groups that sought to have the movie's final ten minutes cut before showing.

The film is scheduled to open Thursday in Thailand. -The Nation

-----------------------

"Controversial Hollywood film "The Da Vinci Code" will be screened in Thailand, but with the final 10 minutes cut out at the request of local Christian groups."

According to this news, people in Thailand will not see the last 10 minutes of The Da Vinci Code in cinema.
