We reported a while back that U.S. audiences will see a drastically shorter cut of Babylon A.D. than Europeans this August — but apparently it's worse than we'd feared. The dystopian action movie, directed by Matthieu Kassovitz (Gothika) and starring Vin Diesel, will run roughly 160 minutes in most of Europe. But the U.S. and British cut will only be a quick-and-dirty 90 minutes, or slightly more than half as long. What's worse, the 90-minute version just got the British equivalent of a PG-13 rating in England, which means all of Kassovitz's trademark violence is gone.
