The Horror Movie “Annabelle 2” Might Get Banned In Lebanon!

A few months ago,

Wonder Woman was about to get banned

in Lebanon. The movie got eventually screened as it was planned. The reason for its ban was that the lead actress, Gal Gadot, is of Israeli heritage. The Ministry of Economy and Trade in Lebanon tried to ban many of Gal Gadot’s movies:

  • Batman V Superman
  • Fast & Furious (2009)
  • Fast Five(2011)
  • Fast & Furious 6 (2013)

However, none of these movies got banned.

Annabelle 2 banned for religious reasons

This time, the horror movie

Annabelle: Creation

 might get banned. The Bureau of Censorship in Lebanon, a division of the General Security, asked cleric men to watch the movie to see whether it should get banned or not. Apparently, there are many scenes that offend the Christian faith. Thus, it was decided that Annabelle 2 should not be screened in movie theaters in Lebanon. However, there are several steps that need to be taken in order to ban a movie. A six-ministry-member committee should make decision. Then the ultimate decision is made by the Interior Minister. For now, the movie is put on hold and the General Bureau has not released an official announcement yet. Unlike

Wonder Woman

, the first screening of

Annabelle 2

has been rescheduled. It should have been screened on Thursday. Here’s the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11taaQy2KBg
