Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp Join The Fight Against Bully 'R' Rating


Meryl Streep and Johnny Depp have joined forces with AMC Entertainment CEO Gerry Lopez to fight against the 'R' rating that was given to the powerful documentary Bully.

Lopez criticized the decision, noting that violence and sex are more subjective, adding:

"To automatically default Bully is a mistake. Automatic default to a rating … is a mistake. The message, the movie and its social relevance defy that kind of formulaic, conventional thinking. AMC will show this movie, and we invite our guests to engage in the dialogue its relevant message will inevitably provoke."

Yes, yes, yes! There needs to be even more support for this movie so there can be a wider audience!!!! Come on, MPAA!!

Filed under: Film FlickersEmma Watson

emma watson perks of being a wallflower


Now even more teens will get to see this movie WOOHOO!!!

As we previously discussed, Perks of Being a Wallflower initially received an R rating from the MPAA for "teen drug and alcohol use, and some sexual references."

Like most movie studios do in this situation, Lionsgate appealed the rating. …and they WON!!! Emma Watson's new movie now has that golden PG-13 seal which means more audiences and MORE MONEY!!!

Hmm we wonder what they had to sacrifice to get this rating though…

Either way! Are U gonna see it!?!

Emma Watson's Perks Of Being A Wallflower Gets An R Rating! Scandalous!

Filed under: Film FlickersEmma Watson

perks of being wallflower r rating

Uh Oh!!! Not exactly what the movie execs like to hear!!

If a film gets an R rating, less people can enjoy its amazingness. Less people means less money…obviously…

So now that Emma Watson's Perks of Being A Wallflower has received the oh so dangerous rating, they're appealing the MPAA decision.

Summit definitely wants a PG-13 and since the film isn't due until later this year, they've got time.

But hey, even if it doesn't work out, at least they can be a badass at the box office, LOL!

Hangover Part 2 Trailer Too Much For MPAA… Somehow.

Really, MPAA?

What's so bad about the Hangover Part 2 full theatrical trailer that you immediately demanded that it be removed from Source Code reels, and any other movie it was attached to, and destroyed or deleted??

Here's the letter that was sent out:

"Warner Bros. and the M.P.A.A. have instructed all theatres to remove The Hangover Part II trailer #2 from Source Code and any other placements. These #2 trailers need to be DELETED FROM YOUR SERVER." adding: "We greatly appreciate your immediate cooperation on this matter."

And here's WB's explanation:

"In our haste to meet the placement schedule for this trailer, we failed to properly vet the final version with the MPAA. We acted immediately to correct the mistake and removed the trailer from screens."

Still doesn't really make sense to us after watching it a few times!

We've still got the trailer though, and it's sitting right up there for anyone who wants to check it out. If someone can figure out why they're being so sensitive about it, make sure to let us know!

Bradley, Zach! It looks HIGHlarious! Give us a call!

Du U feel like it was too much??

Ryan Gosling And Michelle Williams Go NC-17!

ryan gosling and michelle williams movie gets nc 17 rating

The Weinstein Company's Blue Valentine has been given an NC-17, in a surprise move by the MPAA.

To cut steamy sex scenes or not to cut? That is the very difficult question.

On the one hand, NOBODY wants to censor some serious Ry-Ry/Michelle lovin', but on the other hand, movie theaters NEVER screen NC-17 movies. They tried it the other week with horror movie Hatchet 2, and that was given the axe after the first weekend of release!

The film's story is about a couple trying to save to save their troubled marriage. Why the NC-17? Probably because one way they try to save their marriage is through a night away in a hotel, which results in an uncomfortable sex scene that features SOME nudity.

No word at this point on whether or not they'll cut the film down to get that R-rating.

We're thinking the best move might be to cut it down, and then release the NC-17 cut on DVD & Blu-Ray.

Do U think they should cut the film or not?
