(Newser) – The UK has banned a TV ad for a new Angeline Jolie flick, saying it glorifies violence. In a trailer for Wanted, Jolie kisses co-star James McAvoy as they fire guns in a car chase. It implies "that using guns is sexy and glamorous," complains the nation's ad authority. Universal Pictures—which made the comic book adaptation—retorts that the real problem is a strong female lead, Sky News reports.
