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.
