THE DARK KNIGHT RISES gets a PG-13 Rating
Summer is almost here, which means that all of us film fanatics are probably going to be spending all of our time and money at the movie theater. We don't mind though, as oftentimes it is the best part of the year. As an ultra-geek myself, I get most excited for all the superhero stuff to come out.
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, easily one of the most anticipated movies of the year will be out shortly, and now it has an MPAA rating officially. It will be PG-13.
This news is to be expected, as director Christopher Nolan's previous two Batman films have both been PG-13, but some fans were holding out hope for an even darker film. I fully expect the film to be darker than the last one, although I never had any expectation of an R rating. At this juncture, that wouldn't be something WB would be willing to do, especially since THE DARK KNIGHT is one of the highest grossing films of all-time. The film was pretty dark and carried a PG-13 rating, so why would WB want to change that formula?
Either way, the film is sure to be dark and violent, but maybe not necessarily graphic. Either way, it's sure to be a really thrilling film. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES hits theaters on July 20th of this year.
