Priest gets rated by the MPAA; what's the verdict?

03.31.2011by: Eric Walkuski

The wise lords at the Temple of Movie Ratings have woken from their blood of the innocent-induced slumber to lavish another movie with a rating, chosen from the sacred MPAA slab secreted away in the catacombs of their centuries old holy place. (But seriously, they're great.)

This time it's Scott Stewart's PRIEST that has been bestowed with a rating. To my surprise, the film has received a PG-13. It looked like an R all the way to me, but I guess the fact that it's coming out at the very beginning of the summer movie-going season compelled Sony to go easy on the bloodletting. Or maybe it was just never that nasty to begin with.

In any event, the film has earned its PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, disturbing images and brief strong language.

Sounds like a good time to me. Take a peek at the trailer below and let us know if it's something you'll be checking out when it's released on MAY 13th.

looks good

don't care much about the rating - there have been plenty of dark and brutal movies that you would've never have thought were PG-13. Hey, maybe we'll even be treated to an unrated blu-ray in the future. The movie itself looks super cool though, totally redeeming that other one Bettany was just in...

fucking greedy studio hacks.

I was absolutely sure this was R from the early previews. Well, on the flip side, I guess it strayed really far from the source material enough to piss off devoted fans in the first place - so now it's shitting on everyone. Awesome.

The sad thing is I really dig Paul Bettany. The man's got the chops, but just can't seem to get a good genre gig. I really do want to see Priest because I always have hope for those that are doomed to fail. Plus it looks almost like Judge Dredd but with more badassery and 'vampires.' The fact that it's rated PG-13 does piss me off a bit, but the same thing happened with Sucker Punch and I thoroughly enjoyed that. We'll see...
