Among the many unanswered questions fans may have regarding Prometheus, one of them is what the MPAA rating will be. Director Ridley Scott recently said that he is aiming for an R rating, although it could be tailored for a PG-13 release.
"The question is, do you go for the PG-13, [which] financially makes quite a difference, or do you go for what it should be, which is R? Essentially, it's kinda R. It's not just about the blood, it's about ideas that are very stressful. I'm not an idiot, but I'll do everything I can to get the most aggressive film I can."
"[I've wanted to revisit it for] years! Years, years, years. I always wondered when they did [Aliens] 2,3 and 4 why they hadn't touched upon that, instead of evolving into some other fantastic story. They missed the biggest question of them all: who's the big guy? And where were they going? And with what? Why that cargo? There's all kinds of questions."
Since Prometheus doesn't hit theaters until June 8, we likely won't know what the MPAA rating will be for at least another month or so.
