KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Film Censorship Board (LPF) has banned the erotic, romance movie Fifty Shades of Grey from showing in Malaysian cinemas.

Its chairman Datuk Abdul Halim Abdul Hamid said the board had found the film, which was slated to premiere on Feb 12, to be unfit for the Malaysian audience, calling the flick more like "pornography than a movie".
