Cinema Bosses Pull Fanning Film

America's AMC theatre chain have pulled Dakota Fanning's new movie Hounddog from their 5,117 cinemas across the U.S. over mounting pressure from family values groups upset about a rape scene in the film.

Officials at Concerned Women For America are leading the charge to boycott the movie, in which Fanning's character is raped.

The controversial Deborah Kampmeier film was supposed to hit movie screens late last year, but protests from family organisations led to legal investigations in certain parts of the country and the stalling of the movie's release.
