release it unrated. if it's as good as the hype, people will come no matter what the rating. if it's as scary as it sounds seems clear only children (not adolescents) need to be screened.

This is an R rated film, being forced into the PG-13 category through massive cuts and the lovely new method of digitally erasing things that are offensive, like blood and erect nipples that poke through shirts.

I kid you not. That is what's happening with the film.

Seriously?

Now just the shape a of a nipple drives an R rating?

Just one of the many reasons much of the world laughs at us behind our backs.

BTW,
I can see that all over my office complex when the air conditioning is on high.

So, no chance for bloody, erect nipples?

Now that there is just a cryin' shame. I think ol' Ridley needs a face hugger to slap some R rated sense into him.

I have every confidence Ridley will grace us with Charlize's fine Ancestral Dutch Temperature Converters in the first quarter of 2013.

The MPAA's refusal to eliminate the large elephant has been over discussed and it's boring.

No offence intended btw

Lol. I have no idea what bunny you're referring to. The Easter bunny? Bugs Bunny?

I wasn't a fan of the Ted talk video (the performance was unconvincing, too mannered compared to actual Ted talks). But this new "David" video was very well done!

Perhaps some of you will enjoy this great interview with Jon Spaihts. Credit falls where politics lie, so keep the original writer in mind and consider why DL was brought in.... to 'PG' the script.

One point of interest was that Shadow 19 Sold. Likely it will never be produced, but it was a good story IMO and easy to acquire.

Looks like good news on the ratings front!

http://perezhilton.com/2012-04-28-pr...g#.T5ykL47oTpQ

Fox studio chief Tom Rothman has declared Prometheus won't be cut to soften it to get a PG rating. They'll take whatever rating it gets:

Tom Rothman quote:

"The rating board has not opened yet and it will go in to the board soon. This I can tell you and I can tell all the fans, not one frame will be cut. The movie will be what it should be. We will not cut a frame of the film. We will stand behind it 100 percent and if that means it's an R, then so be it, because not an ounce, not a percentage are we going to compromise the film."

There is hope...

Phoenix's performance aside, the Romans were very creepy people to begin with.
I would be willing to bet anyone today that stoked up a Time Machine would be most unhappy after a quick trip to Rome.

So far, two of the year's highly anticipated/hyped movies ('The Hunger Games' and 'The Avengers') have delivered the goods for me. I'm hoping Prometheus will do the same.

The thing is, that article is not exactly honest because Rothman is not being honest. The MPAA has rated it R three times so far. It's being kept quiet because the studios understand how nasty things will get if word gets out cuts are being made. From what I can see with this article, they now understand that they will likely get an R no matter what they do and that means if no PG-13 can be had, Ridley Scott can release whatever cut he desires, as bloody as he desires, with no compromises.

If it released with an R and the film is good, and if it does well, then that is much needed ammo for adult filmmaking to continue.

I hope thats exactly what happens Matt. I am so sick and tired of movies not being what they should be because they are made milder to get a PG rating dammit.

Yeah, Yeah.

It's a damn shame that the term "made for adults" assumes a certain connotation.
