Originally, Rated "R". I'm impressed. There might be new hope for this movie after all.

I wonder what that will translate to in the UK, either a 12 or a 15 I suppose. I guess it will go with 12 so more kiddies can see it.

personally, i'd like a more reliable source than shia on this, as the guy sort of has a history of talking out of his ass in interviews. "razor," anyone? i've read the leaked script, and nothing in there seemed anywhere near graphic enough to warrant a violence-based "r" rating. i'm calling bull on this until i hear it from someone more trustworthy.

not like it really matters what the rating is anyway. i've seen plenty of awesome pg-13 action movies and just as many terrible r-rated ones.

and j-man, id4 was pg-13, so it makes no sense to list it as an example of why this movie should shoot for r.

Correct, that's why we listed it as a rumor for now.

And AVP had to be cut drastically to be pg 13, atleast the new sequel will be better. I hope that this movie gives me the crazy fighting I need. lol.

I hope no cuts are needed to achieve a 12A rating in the UK. It is really annoying when films, like Spiderman 2 and SW episode 2, are cut to achive a PG rating. I'd rather have a 15 rating.

I'd rather see it be a PG-13 movie since I don't watch any movies that are rated "R".

This could very well be true. Look at the desert scene with Scorponok's spiked tail behind the soldier..

I wonder how much blood will be in it now.. :-?

rated "R" than changed to pg-13 what was that movie gonna have. to get "R" you need either nudity or some really sick gory stuff nowadays. i don't think we are gonna see robot make outs but maybe starscream rips of the head off of a human
