It's official, folks! PROMETHEUS has received an R rating!

Earlier today there was a whole hubbub about some ticket stub revealing the MPAA rating for the film - which has been such a source of controversy and chatter these last few months - but we can just skip that malarkey and get it straight from the studio.

20th Century Fox has confirmed to Collider that the Ridley Scott picture has been given an R for “sci-fi violence including some intense images, and brief language.” Okay, guess that indicates we're not getting any Charlize nudity, but the rest we can surely live with!

However, it remains to be seen if Scott is happy with the decision. At a Q+A in London last month, Scott gave the MPAA some shit, indicating that their system is faulty and hinting that he wanted PROMETHEUS to receive a PG-13 so that it would make as much money as possible. However, he also admitted to Empire Online that the film was "kinda R."

Well, now it's definitely R.

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.

Who Cares ...

as long as it's good? Personally, I want to see the story shown as the director's true vision. With plenty of awesome non-R genre movies (Jaws, Sixth Sense, The Ring, Unbreakable, and so much more). It's the PG-13 'remakes' that I thing most people get pissed about.

If the story of Prometheus merits an R then great, if not then don't add gore for the sake of gore. That being said, I like directors making cuts to get a non-R rating and losing the full movie in the process.

On a last note, if it's gonna be R and this movie should be a 'hard R' then that's what should be shown. If it's R then might as well go for broke if that's Scott's vision!

Honestly the rating didn't matter to me. I knew the film would deliver either way, but at least the R rating will keep out the annoying pre-teens :P
