Ghost Rider 2, Paranormal Activity 3 and more get MPAA ratings

10.12.2011by: Eric Walkuski

A big old batch of upcoming flicks have just been branded by the MPAA, so let's not waste any time and get right down to it!

First up is the shocker: GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE has been given a PG-13, for intense sequences of action and violence, some disturbing images, and language. I was certain this flick was going to be given an R based on the crazy trailer I saw at Comic-Con, but I suppose they found a way to tone down Nevaldine and Taylor's propensity for the profane and perverse. Besides, PG-13 equals more box office dollars, so maybe it's not very surprising at all.

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY 3 has been given an R (like all the other PA flicks) for some violence, language, brief sexuality and drug use. The demon must smoke a bowl at some point in the film...

Tarsem's IMMORTALS has also been given an R, for sequences of strong bloody violence, and a scene of sexuality. As long as that scene of sexuality doens't involve John Hurt...

The Daniel Radcliffe-led remake of THE WOMAN IN BLACK has scored an unsurprising PG-13, for thematic material and violence/disturbing images. Hasn't Harry Potter seen enough violence in his time..?

Finally, Victor Salva's thriller ROSEWOOD LANE, starring Rose McGowan (Pictured below), nabbed an R, simply for some violence. An R for "some" violence? That must be some violence! (Hold your applause, please.)

There you have it, another edition of "MPAA Knows Best!" in the bag.

I'm really glad Immortals is rated R. I was sketchy about it, but now I'm definitely on board. Not really surprised with any of the other ratings. I'm a little disappointed that The Woman in Black is PG-13, but it's not at all surprising. And Insidious managed to do okay with a PG-13 rating, so maybe it can too.

No More Marvel R's...

When Disney acquired Marvel, it was stated that there would be no more R rated Marvel flicks, unless they were financed by others. Not sure if this is still true, but I would't be surprised.

GHOST RIDER still falls under 20th Century Fox, I believe.

Ghost Rider 2? PG-13? Hmmmm...not sure how the "Crank" boys are gonna turn that one out, still the flick looks fun, understand in this economic climate its hard to release a big budget R-rated pic. Might wait for the unrated Blu-Ray to be honest...
