CONFIRMED: Is This The Official Classification For THE DARK KNIGHT RISES?

Some (apparent) leaked info from Warner Bros. private Exhibitors website reveals the movie's classification. If this is legit, expect Christopher Nolan's final Bat-flick to up the intensity considerably..

After doing some digging it seems this could well be legit, but just in case have that ever useful pinch of salt handy. The source of the info has apparently revealed a few tidbits from this site in the past that have turned out to be accurate. Honestly, even if it is the real deal it's hardy a huge revelation, but worth posting on a slow news day. The movie will be rated PG-13 (no surprises there), but what is interesting in the reasons given afterward..



"PG-13 for Intense Sequences of Violence & Action, Some Sensuality and Language"


Sounds like we might have a bit more emphasis on the "romantic" elements this time around, though I suppose with Catwoman a factor that was probably always a good possibility. Could we have a proper - if tame of course - sex scene? Trying to glean anything from the plot from the rating would obviously only be guesswork and speculation, but I'm confident that Nolan and co will push the boundaries of that rating ever further than they did with The Dark Knight.

Thanks to Paulrom we have thsi update which confirms the classification..

PaulRom - 4/7/2012, 11:54 AM
Definitely expected it.

Who gives a shit?
Tainted87 - 4/7/2012, 12:10 PM
Are they insinuating that Catwoman's suit is in any way sensual? Who are they kidding?
FriendlyNeighborhoodSpidey - 4/7/2012, 12:14 PM
Umm...okay. That's a HUGE surprise lol.
headlopper - 4/7/2012, 12:15 PM
Soooo, they'll be no evisceration, decapitations, maiming, dismembering, genitalia exposure, verbal profanity or sexual penetration?

Fu** it. I'll pass on THIS film.

@PartyHard: Apparently you don't.

@TheSharkKnight

WTF are u postin....??
Spidey91 - 4/7/2012, 12:24 PM
@Prot3ctor

the answer to all those questions is: "Nolan" :P
headlopper - 4/7/2012, 12:26 PM
@TheSharkKnight- Okay, thanx! Wait...r---are you asking me or telling me? I can't tell...

Anyhow...


@Prot3ctor - Good question. Here's my answer:

is still unsure about the real classification so for lack of better words to say i guess i'll just....

insert any @SharKnight posts in here ( )
...lol
RorMachine - 4/7/2012, 12:26 PM
That JL news from Robinov is well old.
thewonderer - 4/7/2012, 12:32 PM
Apparently people think Catwoman needs to dress like a slut to be sensual
avengingson - 4/7/2012, 12:44 PM
SharkKnight; once again, you are a retard. Hawkeye's glasses and Catwoman's goggles aren't anything alike. It doesn't appear that Hawkeye's shades flip up into silly-looking cat ears... Not that I'm not looking forward to this movie...
RorMachine - 4/7/2012, 12:45 PM
NickKaseAKAthePieEATERxGETIT, ummm...if you say so champ.
avengingson - 4/7/2012, 12:46 PM
NickKase; you too are a retard. In this context, sensuality DOES mean sexuality, just not explicit sex.
headlopper - 4/7/2012, 12:47 PM
@Prot3ctor - I agree. 'Justice League ' would be far more challenging to make into a mind-blowing CBM than Avengers. There are many reasons why. A few would be:
1. No Flash or Wonder Woman solo film yet.
2. Batman and Superman are epic. How do you parse screen time between them and the other characters?
3. The villain would vie for screen time - having to be super epic- and perhaps siphon attention from the heroes.
4. So on etc....

GreyChaos13Zero - 4/7/2012, 12:53 PM
Batman Beyond would be epic! but, it wouldn't lead to a Justice League movie?)
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/7/2012, 12:54 PM
Bullsh1t
The Avengers doesn't even have an age rating yet, why would Batman
GreyChaos13Zero - 4/7/2012, 12:57 PM
Devastator335 - 4/7/2012, 1:03 PM
After TDKR I hope they make a Batman Beyond movie. That's my wish for DC!
Spidey91 - 4/7/2012, 1:09 PM
by the way,I've found this fan-art,is pretty cool


"to break,or not to break,that is the question" :P
headlopper - 4/7/2012, 1:16 PM
@Spidey91- Good stuff...
Fogs - 4/7/2012, 1:20 PM
Sensuality is for hathaway's ass (under the suit, of course).
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 4/7/2012, 1:30 PM
@Just1Superguy
I know its going to be PG-13, I am calling bs on the reasons to why it is.
marvel72 - 4/7/2012, 1:31 PM
The Dark Knight Rises will have the best dialogues any film would have. Never saw any other film having such memorable dialogues." - thesharkknight

would you like me to list films with quoteable/memorable dialogue,you come across abit of a idiot.
DrStrangeFan - 4/7/2012, 1:40 PM
Personally i want a Justice League prequel.They could get the golden age members of the JGA and give them a darker makeover.It they make a JL prequel i want Alan Scott,Jay Garrick,The First Black Canray,Doctor Fate and Hawkman to be the members and i want Hawkman to be played by Hugh Jackman
DrStrangeFan - 4/7/2012, 1:41 PM
I want to see Justice League vs Watchmen as well...please let that happen some day
DrStrangeFan - 4/7/2012, 1:42 PM
Please stop with these annoying ass shots
headlopper - 4/7/2012, 1:47 PM
@Ironman53 - Yummy! DON'T STOP with these annoying a** shots! JMHO.
DrStrangeFan - 4/7/2012, 2:00 PM
You know what i want more than a Justice League movie..A CGI Justice League Cartoon..why the hell are DC doing Beware the Batman
Fabius - 4/7/2012, 2:01 PM
@PG-13 for Intense Sequences of Violence & Action, Some Sensuality and Language

Hope one day a pure thriller batman movie rated R. director Riddley Scott./ P Verhoeven.
headlopper - 4/7/2012, 2:03 PM
@SuspenseSmith - Check out the Batman Beyond comic now in publication monthly. It's pretty true to the show.

...and you're right, it is amazing for the reasons you stated.
It's true with the original 'Star Trek' too. Only three seasons!
Emjeed - 4/7/2012, 2:03 PM
I Think that DC/WB has one team up movie that is a SURE thing. Two words.. World's Finest
OnLeatherWings - 4/7/2012, 2:07 PM
i think there should def be a batman superman team up before the JLA. bat vs sups would be a great way to lead up to a JLA
