Everything’s PG-13! But We Knew That Already!

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.

    I could care less at this point that 7500 is PG13. I just wanna see the damn movie already. I’ve been looking forward to this ever since casting. Besides Evil Dead, this is the only other horror movie I’m really looking forward to.

    Dammit, that dreaded PG-13 rating is the kiss of death for any adult film fan. Some movies are just so butchered to appease the masses after that damn rating, I would sooner wait until the film was released on Netflix than actually pay money to see it in theaters.
    For example, “Mama” would have been so much better as an R-rated film. Oh well.

    Ummm, ok. Same here though. 7500 labeled the 13? I’ll roll with that I guess. Still got You’re Next and The Purge so I’m happy. Guess I should close the hope and dreams of Deadpool coming out in my life time though lol.
