Hallelujah! Ridley Scott's PROMETHEUS Will Be Rated R

Hallelujah! Ridley Scott's PROMETHEUS Will Be Rated R

It's been revealed on a ticket stub that Ridley Scott's Prometheus has been rated R. Even though Spain rated the film "18" many American fans were still worried that they would receive a watered down PG-13 movie.

Ridley Scott, director of 'Alien' and 'Blade Runner,' returns to the genre he helped define. With 'Prometheus', he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

To many this isn't too much of a surprise as Spain a few weeks ago gave the film an "18" rating which is the equivalent of an R rating in the United States. But for me it's a bit of a surprise since I am so accustomed to films succumbing to the pressure, and becoming generic PG-13 movies.

So, get your asses to the theaters and see this movie. This is a huge opportunity for moviegoers everywhere to send a message to Hollywood that you don't have to make a snuff film about Jesus just to have a successful R rated film.

That freakin trailer before Avengers bout gave me a migraine with all of that screeching.

Thank the lord!

Take this with a grain of salt, still. I've had misprinted ratings on movie tickets before. I remember my stub for Terminator Salvation had an R rating...
AsianVersionOfET - 5/6/2012, 10:19 PM
Thank Zeus! I can't wait to see this opening day!!! Most anticipated film after TDKR.
Gamester76 - 5/6/2012, 10:22 PM
I son't give a rat's ass one way or another if it's PG-13 or R. Ridley Scott has already said that he has made the movie he wants to make and they will not trim one frame of footage from that cut. And whatever it's rated, I don't care because I am confident that he has made the best version of the film possible.

Even if the [frick]er was rated G.

I'm extremely happy about this. :)

I admit I was worried until I saw the International Trailer 2. This movie will be a much needed change of pace this summer.
MisterBabadook - 5/6/2012, 10:49 PM
Worried about the pg13

@P862010 And "Chronicle", too, for some people.

It's all been uphill since Tom Rothman got promoted to a position in which he can't be "hands on."

His replacement really seems to know what she's doing, too. It's why I'm (cautiously) optimistic about their Marvel films for the next few years.

wish they had made an R rated mountains of madness instead, with del Toro directing. Let's see what they do with it now..

after seeing too much a big green men and heroes prancing around in silly costumes Skyfall, TDKR and Prometheus will the perfect antidote for that
VictorHugo - 5/7/2012, 12:55 AM
Can´t wait to see another ALIEN movie on teathers, have been seeing them since ALIENS.
vespasian13 - 5/7/2012, 1:47 AM
Right...because there's no silly costumes in tdkr..look get over it! Tdkr (pretty sure it doesn't deserve capitals) was HULK smashed by Avengers..and its not even out yet!..I'm looking forward to seeing it, but I doubt it'll warrant multiple viewings..now Prometheus on the other hand no doubt will..
TopCat89 - 5/7/2012, 2:08 AM
Hang on, the UK is said to have age 15 if my memory serves me right. Please don't tell me this is the watered down version?
WarnerBrother - 5/7/2012, 2:52 AM

Like nobody saw TDK for a second or third time.Maybe it was the fact that ledger had died that made people see that movie again and again. TDKR Hulk smashed two and a half months before it comes out? Right.
WarnerBrother - 5/7/2012, 2:59 AM
Until we get an official statement saying there is an "R" rating, we should just hold

Keep in mind that european countries tend to have more of a hang up regarding violence then in North America. Our hang up over here is over sexuality.

Terminator Salvation almost got an "R" in the US because of a short topless love
scene that was cut,not because there was anymore violence that had to be removed.

[frick] YEAH x 1000000
Asterisk - 5/7/2012, 5:11 AM
This kinda sucks. I was hoping to see it with my mormon friend.
xXkryptoniteXx - 5/7/2012, 5:31 AM

I agree but avatar??? That movie sucks and if it didn't have 3D and special effects that movie would have flop. The thing that bother me for avatar is why are the na'vi similar to earths native indian??? Aren't they aliens? So why the similarity? Don't tell me because they are close to the mother earth. This is pocahontas without give credits to we're the source material came. It was a lack of imagination for the na'vi to me that give it a low blow.

On Prometheus being rated R, bring it!!!!

Avengers & TDKR will both be rentals for me. But I'll be there opening night for this one!
GrayFox1025 - 5/7/2012, 7:42 AM

Yeah, except that 17 year olds are still annoying high school kids on their cellphones....
Spaceman - 5/7/2012, 8:54 AM
This is a good news!
Rowsdower - 5/7/2012, 11:50 AM
Not surprising at all, it's a prequel to a R rated horror film.
CaptainObvious - 5/7/2012, 12:46 PM
ralfinader - 5/7/2012, 12:54 PM
Not suprised at all. I wonder if all the toddlers that saw this trailer in front of Avengers had nightmares.
