Ridley Scott’s anticipated Prometheus has received its expected R-rating. Though Scott is known for films that require people under the age of 17 to be accompanied by an adult (Hannibal, American Gangster), he feels the MPAA should get their act together.
“Films this year that have got PG-13 ratings — it’s absolutely fucking ludicrous,” he told Thompson on Hollywood at a Q&A in April.
The movie contains “sci-fi violence including some intense images, and brief language.” He is no doubt frustrated, for the millionth time, that another of his projects may lose money because of a limited audience.
Well Ridley, if it’s any consolation, me and hoards of fans might be a little concerned for the quality of anything with ‘a connecting vein’ to the very first Alien that WASN’T rated R.
If you are asked what you think of the rating the MPAA has given your movie, and your response is to blurt out “it’s absolutely fucking ludicrous” then perhaps you are not the best judge of what a PG-13 movie is.
Ridley Scott, James Cameron and David Fincher all have something in common. I dunno EXACTLY what it is, but it’s some kinda eccentricity/anger/control issue. Damn geniuses!
It worked well for Billy Friedkin for a little while, but then I think people didn’t really want to work for him god bless him.
