It absolutely was shown to U.S. and was refused the certificate (they had ordered many cuts). The film did not come back to us for editing, the manufacturers went straight to the assembly. On March 23 or 24 the assembly passed an order and that we issued the certificate afterward on April one. At constant time we tend to seal the ultimate version of the DVD, got it signed by the applier and saved it beneath lock and key within the record area. There has been no meddling or something of that kind. I do not see any manner this might have leaked from our facet.”
