Even though anticipation for ‘Prometheus’ is about as high as it can be, news today from Collider (found here) that the film won’t be diluted to a PG-13 rating and will come out as an R is certainly not going to hurt its luster any. Perhaps the only real concern about the film was whether or not 20th Century Fox was going to force Ridley Scott to dilute the final product in order to get the most audience friendly rating possible. Well, those who were worried about that can now breathe a sigh of relief. After the jump I’ll share what the R rating is for, but I’ll confess that this is a case where I’m rather glad to not have to see a PG-13 next to a film’s title…
So, what can we expect when ‘Prometheus’ opens in almost exactly a month? Well, the R is apparently for “sci-fi violence including some intense images, and brief language”. Sounds about right to me. Listen, a certain rating doesn’t make a film automatically better or worse, but I’m pleased that Ridley Scott’s full vision will be on display. It’d be a shame for Scott to have returned to the genre he did so well in after a long delay and wind up with a sullied product. June 8th can’t come soon enough my friends!
