‘PROMETHEUS’ Is Officially RATED R. This Rules.

The hubub surrounding the rating of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus  can now subside. Despite being a tentpole flick, somehow the studio brains have allowed the most harsh of cuts of the movie to hit the theater.


Genre and horror fans can do a little celebrating today as the argument regarding the rating of Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi film Prometheus has been settled. Many fans were worried the film would be slapped with a PG-13 to bring in a broader audience and possibly soften the violence and scares.

That is not the case, however, as 20th Century Fox has now confirmed that Prometheus, out in one short month on June 8, will be rated R for “sci-fi violence including some intense images, and brief language.” Awesome.

Fantastic! I love the idea that despite the money they may be losing by releasing an R cut, Fox is going to go ahead and do so.
