Human Centipede II to get UK cinema release?

Not quite “The Full Sequence”

 
"This work was passed with no cuts made," says the ruling for The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) on the British Board of Film Classification website. 
 
We never thought we'd hear those words about about a film that has been using the phrase "Banned in the UK" to sell itself to other countries. 
 
It's only when you look a little deeper you realise it's not quite the Full Sequence, as the BBFC's remarks include the line: "Cut version. Pre-cut by company in line with DVD version." 
 
The version Bounty Films submitted on 6 June 2011 that was rated R ran at 86 minutes and 50 seconds, while the cut that has been passed as an 18 Certificate for film and DVD now runs at 84 minutes and 19 seconds. 
 
That's two minutes and 31 seconds the rest of the world is 'enjoying' and we're not! 
 
Oh well, at least we've still got access to the Human Centipede game. All the challenges of classic Centipede with the added fun of human ass-to-mouth action! 

Gutted at losing two minutes and 31 seconds of depravity? Or should they have cut the other 84 minutes and 19 seconds too? Join together below (not like that!) and share your thoughts.

      I don't think they applied for a cinema release in the UK. I think we're just getting the DVD release sometime next year.

      won't bother if it's cut to bits.like the cut version of the evil dead a waste of time.are we not mature enough to decide what we want to watch.lets just let the bbfc dictate to us what we should watch.

      Just imagine if the BBFC release this movie UNCUT!!! OMG - SHOCK HORROR!!! I would then have the choice of going to watch it in all of its depraved 'glory', or completely ignoring it. Funny thing is, cut or uncut, my reaction is the same. I don't give a f**k about this movie. I will be ignoring it. Personally, I think the BBFC should give the public a bit more credit when it comes to things like this. Some films deserve to be cut or banned (A Serbian Film) because of their content. This film, though? The concept is too stupid for anyone to think "wow, I have to go out and do that for real...". BBFC - give me some credit and allow me to avoid this film by my own choice, instead of patronising me and making my choices for me...gits...

      Reading the comments to this article is basically a summary of all the different views on regulated consumption and distribution in media theory! Should it be cut? Should be uncut? Should the BBFC even take action? We must however give the BBFC credit where credit's due. Without them, non-film savvy people might go to films not knowing what they are... Some, might even think it was a kids' film from the title alone! I'll be ignoring it too, like @alexr - can't stand that type of film.
