‘Helena,’ ‘Zoe’ pull 2 NC-17s

NC-17 ratings were announced on Wednesday for a pair of pix, “Killing Zoe” and “Boxing Helena,” according to a 1,277th bulletin from the Classification and Rating Administration of the Motion Picture Assn. of America and both ratings are being appealed by the producers.

Also on the ratings front, the Richard Dreyfuss/Emilio Estevez sequel “Another Stakeout” for Buena Vista received a PG-13, while the latest in the barrage of television adaptations, “Coneheads,” garnered a PG for Paramount Pictures.

In other MPAA news, the organization reported a 56% increase in the number of pirated videos seized during the first six months of 1993, compared to the year earlier. The total take was 152,930 vids,representing more than $ 9 million worth of home entertainment.

The MPAA said the majority of the investigations come from tips on its anti-piracy hotline.
