The BBFC commented:
  • Cuts required to remove potentially indecent images of a child in accordance with the Protection of Children's Act 1978.

Thanks to James:

The villain of the movie has a large framed photo of a reclining naked pre-pubescent girl hung up on their wall in the background of a scene and is pretty prominent throughout, probably talking up half of the screen space.

So it's not really a surprise that it's been cut. In fact I'm curious how they have handled the cuts because it's prolonged and prominent enough that removing all frames with it in would render the scene un-watchable. I'm assuming they will have to mask it out rather than remove the footage (which is probably why they haven't mentioned the length of the cuts).

Arrow commented:

We would like to take this opportunity to let UK fans know that our upcoming release of Sister Street Fighter: Hanging By A Thread, will be censored (not cut) in one scene. This is due to a potentially indecent image of a minor used as set decoration in the lair of one of the villains - visible in one shot for approximately 31 seconds which the BBFC advised breached the Protection of Children Act 1978.

As this scene features important expository dialogue, instead of cutting it out completely we have decided to zoom into the other half of the frame, cropping out the offending part of the image entirely. The US edition will be unaffected.

Arrow also noted that the company originally intended to implement the cuts by blurring the picture. However the BBFC would not allow this and so the company implemented the cuts by reframing.
