Trivia

After some suspense and several screenings, the controversial movie, "Init" has finally been re-approved, but some juicy parts have to be cut. The permit for the movie was recalled when sex scenes supposed to have been cut were reportedly restored during the premiere showing held at the Circle theatre. For the re-approval, the whole membership of the interim board of censors have to sit en banc twice. Also, a controversial item about "Init" is its advertisement, said to be not in consonance with existing guidelines of the censors. The movie shot in Currimao, Ilocos Norte. See more »
