‘Terminator 5’ Confirms R Rating

Terminator 5 will be R rated As has been dually noted, fans are less than pleased that The Expendables 2 will arrive in theaters tagged with a PG-13 rating. Those fearing the same neutered fate might happen with Terminator 5 can rest assured, though, that despite Terminator Salvation having a PG-13 rating, Arnold Schwarzenegger's return to this popular franchise will be slapped with a big, fat, juicy, dripping with meat and vicera, red R.

Those ponies over at theterminatorfans.com reached out to current Terminator franchise rights holders Annapurna Pictures, begging that this upcoming sequel be rescued from "the brink of PG-13 Hell".

In turn, Megan Ellison, owner and president of Annapurna Pictures, made a statement promising that this would not be a Terminator for ten-year-old children.

"We can't really tell you guys anything about Terminator 5 . But it will be an R rated film as God and James Cameron intended."

No further details have been revealed at this time.

Terminator Genisys was released July 1st, 2015.

    I think Arnold Schwarzenegger will be returning in Terminator 5. It says in the very bottom of the article that he is returning.

            @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Well, already know of one confirmed for this installment. We don't even know if Bale is still contracted for another.

                @bawnian-dexeus -- Exactly. It's automatically 1x better than it would've been PG-13 rated. Now for the casting...

                              I must've missed an article or two, cause last I checked, there was a bidding war over the franchise following the bankruptcy of the parent company. It's gotta bring something new to work. Each film had a new element. "Judgement Day" had the mercury man and origin of the machines; "Rise..." had the skynet takeover; "Salvation" was a montage of the war in the future; The original of course introduced the whole thing. So this fifth installment has to bring something new to the franchise rather than being a pointless sequel. At least it'll be getting an 'R' rating, but let's hope not just cause of a few close ups, and that the content's really in there.

                                Yes, it certainly is. I hope it turns out to be a good movie.

                                      @the-tall-guy Exactly dude, I'd honestly have a good PG-13 movie than some mindless R-rated crap like Conan The Barbarian where they just put in as much random sh*tty violence in for the sake of an R rating. I'm sure Cameron never "aimed" for an R rating, he just made the film he wanted to make and went with whatever rating he got.

                                          @TheFury They probably mean in general the next Terminator movie will be Rated R.
