The MPAA aren't the only people who want Eva Green to cover up for the sequel to Sin City; now television network ABC has deemed the trailer for her forthcoming film too racy to air.

Back in May, the MPAA banned this film poster for Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, citing the "curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown". Directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller ended up releasing a retouched poster, but the offending outfit has also fallen foul of the censors at ABC. 

According to Page Six, the network objected that the gown makes her "appear to be naked" in two scenes and are refusing to air the trailer. Distributor Dimension Films is now appealing the decision.

You may wonder why there's so much fuss over some implied nudity when the original Sin City film featured graphic violence and bloodshed, including but not limited to a scene in which Bruce Willis shoots off Nick Stahl's penis. It seems like Green agrees, too. 

"You have so many more violent things in the movie business," she told Vanity Fair about the uproar over her image, adding, "This is kind of soft. I’m not naked. It’s suggested. I find (it) really sexy."
