U,K, gangland film, Blue Story has now been removed from the screens in a British city after there was a stabbing that occurred over the weekend. A cinema in Nottingham central England became the venue this past Sunday night to a stabbing. One man was taken to the hospital while two men were arrested by the police on suspicion of the possession of a bladed article.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Blue Story — the directorial debut of British rapper-turned-filmmaker Andrew Onwubolu, better known as Rapman — made headlines after it was pulled from screens by theater chain Vue. The decision, made in the wake of a brawl in a cinema in Birmingham and what the chain described as more than "25 serious incidents," sparked an immediate backlash. Vue CEO Tim Richards later said the film would be returning to his cinemas, with plans to beef up security.
Showcase Cinemas, another British chain, also initially pulled the film from release before reinstating it. The film tells the story of two London friends who get embroiled in city's gang wars.
