Cut or uncut?

We’re talking about your preference for the much-talked about banned Spartacus poster of course.


There’s a review in the new issue of GT (our porn issue, hits shelves in London this weekend then around the country from next Wednesday – contractually obliged Ed) of Spartacus Blood and Sand (on DVD and Blu-ray 16 May – morally obliged in order to placate perpetually cheery PR person Ed) that makes it sound so blindingly great that even the most cynical of the gays of Gay Towers are planning on giving it a go.

Well, that and the reviewer's promise of lots of naked men and buggery which we’re not going to liken to anything else in our day to day lives at all.

So obviously when we spotted the posters around town for the DVD we were impressed with the chesticles. But then we discovered that the original poster was censored. Other people decided that Andy Whitfield’s (frankly quite impressive) cock needed to be cut. Though not literally, we think after very close inspection.

What a waste, oh the humanity etc. We’re sure now we’ve brought it to your attention you’ll be, like us, a little bit more interested in the show. Yes we know we’re fickle. Your point is? It’s not just us, someone’s done this video highlighting why it might be of interest to gentlemen like ourselves…




Spartacus Blood and Sand is, as we mentioned above, available on DVD and Blu-ray now. And it’s not true about it making you go blind, so knock yourself out.

Oh sorry it's not available now, it's out on 16 May. We don't really pay attention, just look at the pictures.

Uncut for Film. Personal Preference Cut ;)Yes I am. Yes Reminds me of Tony Curtis in Spartacus Stars: Kirk Douglas, Laurence Olivier, Jean Simmons, Charles Laughton, Peter Ustinov, John Gavin, Tony Curtis Director: Stanley Kubrick In 1992, Spartacus was restored by acclaimed film restorer Robert A. Harris (with backing from Steven Spielberg, Stanley Kubrick and Universal) at a cost of nearly $1 million. Harris restored five minutes of footage that had been cut from the initial release print (including the bath scene between Tony Curtis and Laurence Olivier), along with the original overture, entr’acte and exit music. I will be looking out for and look forward to seeing Spartacus 16May.
