The Dark Knight Rises MPAA rating is...

04.09.2012

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES will be rated PG-13.

While the rating is not very surprising, the specific reasoning is a bit more revealing. An exhibitor website for Warner Bros. recently listed the following information for the new Batman film.

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES was pretty much guaranteed to be PG-13 like the prior two films in Christopher Nolan's trilogy. But, the added mention of sensuality in the rating does raise some questions. Does Catwoman do a lap dance for Bruce Wayne? One could only hope.

With only a couple of months until the film's release, expect the rating to begin appearing on advertising in the near future.

With all the hype surrounding The Avengers, Prometheus, Battleship, EX2 and Neighborhood Watch (I guess), is this even news?
We all saw it coming... I wouldn't a cross-over with Black Widow & Catwoman duking it out, though.

If anybody likes the combination of "Catwoman" and "sensuality", please check out the animated short film "Catwoman", attached to the animated movie "Batman: Year One". It's basically 15 minutes of Catwoman dancing around a stripper pole. You will not be disappointed.

Not all that surprised by this. Sensuality has always been part of the Catwoman character and this shouldn't be any different. But it's good to see a rating. Not that even a G would deter me from the film, as this is on my must see list.

Honestly are we surprised? I would think we all knew The Dark Knight Rises would get a PG-13 rating. Granted with Bane maybe some of were hoping for some harsh killings but I am sure we'll all be happy with the end result. Hell, maybe we'll land an R-rated bluray edition.

Not exactly surprising...

Who really gives a rat's ass? If you had done a poll, 100% would have guessed this movie would be PG-13.

If you read the article you would have seen that the point of said article wasn't that it was rated pg-13 it's that it was rated that for sensuality in addition to violence. the sensuality is the odd part there.

Regardless of rating, I'm very confidence Mr. Nolan won't let us down.

dear Joblo and staff: I happen to like this article. It is definitely movie related as it deals with the rating of a very big film coming out soon, and it's interesting to see why they decided the rating. Don't let some people on here try to tell you otherwise. Have a good day!

@NewYorke, what the hell are you talking about? How is being a movie or gaming nerd relevant to how much money you make? I know a lot of gaming nerds that make absolutely nothing... really confused as to where you're getting these facts.

If it was R-rated (which I was hoping after seeing an article about the rating) then I would understand....But is PG-13 in any way surprising? Wooo...Stop the presses, the movie is going to be SENSUAL!!!
I'm sorry, but I'm with RabidShihTzu in this one, JoBlo is better then this.

Wow, did someone piss in everyone's cereal today? Are you guys going around all other movie fansites and posting the same complaints?

It's a slow news day, we know everyone is looking forward to the film, it's a legit story. If you don't think so, that's your prerogative, but I don't spend my days emailing sites about stories they should/shouldn't post. I try to respect them for their hard work and effort, and appreciate that not all stories will interest me personally. But I guess that's

@Nightwalker: The STRIKE BACK section is to comment on the content of the articles actually, not spelling errors or potshots at the writer or whether or not the article "interested you" or not (and we certainly don't need to be condescended to: "JoBlo, you're better than this").

Joblo.com's website rating is...

R(eally?!) For making news stories out of nothing and scraping the bottom if the proverbial barrel.
I'm excited for TDKR as the next guy, but this is a really bush league move.
*Applies J Jonah Jameson 'stache* "Anytime we post something Dark Knight related our page views skyrocket. Find me something on it...I don't care if its about their craft service menu being subpar just get me something to post."
Don't get me wrong, I still love the site. You guys are just better than this though.

Dude, it's EASTER MONDAY! You do realize that, right? Instead of posting NOTHING, we decided to post a ratings story on TDKR, which generally interests 90% of our readers. If you see the title and the rating does NOT interest, all you gotta do is NOT click on the headline and move on with your life.

For a guy who "loves the site", I think it's not very cool to simply bash us for trying to post stories that may interest our readers. Like I always say, if a story doesn't interest you, move to

Whoa settle down, no reason to get so defensive. It wasn't my intention to bash the site or come off like a dick, something you may have tried and failed at miserably JoBlo. I understand that I was the one that clicked on the article and that today is a slow news day. I also understand that there are some people out there that would enjoy reading about the rating. I just saw an opportunity to make a joke and an observation at the current state of movie news. I stand by what I said though,

P.S. having a holy come apart whenever one of your readers (read: the reason you have a job) points out a mistake or something that could be done better on the site, and ripping them a new asshole isn't a very good business model. Now that doesn't mean I have the right to come in and bitch and moan at the drop of a hat but if someone makes a comment you disagree with you should try being a tad more reasonable to them. I apologize if I offended you or any of your writers. I do love the site, just not unconditionally so, so if I see a problem I'll sure as hell point it out.

You knew exactly what your intentions were when you bitched about the article and just because you got slapped down your back-pedaling really fucking fast.

@RabidShihTzu -- Funny how when I replied to your post, suddenly I'm the "asshole", eh? Wow. Talk about being able to "dish it out", but not take it! Bro, calm down. Re-read my reply to you.

Dude, you're projecting. You are describing yourself. You're overreacting, and becoming way too defensive over a reasonable response. Was it the exclamation point that got you bothered?

After getting home from work, taking a nap, and reading through the thread again on an actual computer rather than my phone I have come to a realization, I was wrong. Most will just view that as my just back pedaling because I got called on being a dick or not sticking to my guns, but I really don't care, I felt the need to admit that. JoBlo was actually pretty level headed and in the heat of a retarded internet argument haze I misinterpreted it as him being a dick and overreacted. I can admit

I can admit when I am wrong and my response was wrong. However I stand by the fact that this isn't necessarily newsworthy, but that's beyond the point. You guys do a good job and it's obvious plenty of people enjoyed reading this story so I will back off now.

I appreciate your last response and it takes a big man to admit they're wrong, but you have my RESPECT for doing so. Everybody makes mistakes. Thanks for that.

The question of what TDKR would be rated never crossed my mind. It would be rather odd if the trilogy ended with an R rating for the last film. I am happy with PG-13. While other "possible" PG-13 ratings I am not happy with (Prometheus). Prometheus needs to have an R rating. This movie cannot be the only film in the Alien universe that does not have an R rating.
