Well, this is clearly a calculated move from the Weinstein Co. They've been playing the MPAA rating card with their upcoming "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" from the beginning. Their latest move is to plant a story -- here, a sizzling poster of star Eva Green revealing too much of her breasts for the comfort of the MPAA -- with Page Six, and send out as a press release.

Ever since the 80s, with "Scandal" and "The Cook, The Thief, The Wife, The Lover," it's been in the Weinstein DNA to exploit this stuff.

"Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" lands August 22.
