Ridley Scott Is Pissed At The MPAA Over Prometheus Rating

The MPAA and Ridley Scott seem to be at odds over what rating Prometheus should receive.

Ratings are more important than you may think, not just for parents to be able to keep their kids safe, but for the amount of money a film can make.

Ridley Scott was at a recent public screening of Prometheus footage in London and said:

"[F]ilms this year that have got PG-13 ratings… it’s absolutely f**king ludicrous. The question is, do you go for the PG-13, or do you go for what it should be, which is R?

Financially it makes quite a difference, or the risk makes quite a difference, and yet you also have to apply the question: if you soften it, will you financially suffer? As opposed to just going for the throat and gambling. Essentially, it's kinda R."

He brings up a good point, when you see an intense action/horror/sci-fi trailer, then see it's rated PG-13, don't you sometimes feel disappointed?

Like they're not going to push the envelope or they're going to have to cut all the good stuff?

What do U think? Would you rather see Prometheus get a PG-13 or an R rating??

    I want it to get an R - The people who are actually going to be paying good money to see this are people who know the Aliens movie history. Kids should not be his target audience. Plus I don't want their cell phones going off in the theatre.

    I would be extremely disappointed if the movie was PG-13. I mean, think Alien and think of the alien scene (bursting out of chest) in a PG-13 movie? Yes, it could still be done, but just wouldn't be the same. This franchise became a sensation using that particular scene, and needs to remain true to the original formula. Besides, I don't want a bunch of young kids ruining a good movie experience in the theatre. I had to deal with their stupid movies (Twilight) for what seems like forever, they can deal with mine…when it comes out on DVD.

    This is the ALIEN universe - it's dark and compelling stuff. Sure i don't know exactly what happens in the movie, but the family lineage alone demands an R rating. This is a movie (and director) that should push the boundaries - and PG-13 films of this nature almost always come across feeling stymied. Make it R, make it EFFECTIVE - PG-13's hardly move an adult audience anymore.

    It's crazy that these days Cable TV has more gore and violence and sex than your average R Rated film.
