In the new George Clooney movie "Three Kings," filmmaker David O. Russell used a cadaver to show in graphic detail how a bullet penetrates a body.
Warner Bros. was so concerned about the effects of the scene that the studio considered removing it, but preview audiences were fascinated, Russell told Newsweek magazine for this week's edition.
The movie is about four soldiers who set off at the end of the Persian Gulf war to find a cache of gold Iraq looted from Kuwait.
Co-star Mark Wahlberg said that when he saw the scene with the cadaver, he was disgusted.
"I don't even want to pick up a gun again," he said. "I see violence on TV, and I don't look at it the way I did before."
