The MPAA released their latest batch of ratings and every movie they covered that we’re interested in got a PG-13 rating. From Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim to the Dark Horse adaptation R.I.P.D. to Takashi Shimizu’s 7500.
Honestly, it’s not a surprise at all. Nor is it really a bad thing. That may be confusing in light of the editorial I wrote yesterday taking down the exhibitors wish for less “R”-rated movies, but I don’t think any of these three movies were ever designed to be anything other than PG-13. Pacific Rim is a giant $200M movie about robots fighting monsters and R.I.P.D. is a Men In Black style comedic romp.
The only thing I think is really up in the air is 7500. It’s been so delayed I’d imagine there’s probably some behind the scenes futzing around on that one so who knows what went on. But at least this confirms they’ve got a cut ready! Now, when will they release it?
In the long run, as long as these movies are good – I’ll be happy.
