Peanuts will be rated G and Max Mad: Fury Road gets a strong R rating

03.18.2015

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD and PEANUTS could not be more dissimilar in plot or tone and yet both films represent new takes on franchises that defined the youth of many of you out there. Both properties hit theaters this year and recent reveals about their MPAA ratings should make fans very happy.

First up is MAD MAX: FURY ROAD which has officially been given a Restricted rating. Many were concerned that George Miller's new entry in his post-apocalyptic series would be given a PG-13 to maximize box office revenue, but the R rating is due to "intense sequences of violence throughout, and for disturbing images". In other words, this is going to be a hardcore MAD MAX through and through.

Next is PEANUTS which has not been officially rated by the MPAA, but producer Paul Feig sat down with Collider and shared that the goal in making the film was to be faithful to the original comic strip and animated specials.

“It’s very sweet. It’s totally a G-rated movie, because you can’t get edgy with Charlie Brown. That was the Schulz family’s fear, that me and Fox everybody were gonna come in and hip it up and cast Justin Bieber as Charlie Brown and have it like Space Jam or something. All of us were like, ‘No.’. We cast kids that sound exactly like the kids you remember from the specials. It’s very pure of heart.”

From the initial trailers, it looks like Feig and director Steve Martino have achieved a look that modernizes the traditional hand-drawn look of PEANUTS while still making it fresh for new audiences. It seems that it would be a foregone conclusion that the film would be rated G, but if you look at the animated films released in the last few years, only a couple have been approved for general audiences.

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD hits theaters on May 15th and PEANUTS opens on November 6th.

They could cast Bieber as the voice of Snoopy - who would know?
Good to hear Mad Max is being geared toward an adult audience - as it should be.

cool to hear they didn't try to make The Peanuts some new hip film. They don't need to change how the characters are. That being said, if you watch some of the 70's and 80's Peanuts movies some of them are a little edgy. I'm surprised they didn't rate it PG. I can't think of the last time I heard of a film in the theaters getting a G rating.

Hell yeah for Mad Max for receiving the r rating. I really couldn't see it as a PG 13 considering how violent and over the top it looks.
