Confirmed: Ridley Scott’s 'Prometheus' Is Rated R (Updated)

The Collider:
There’s been heavy speculation over whether Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi horror film Prometheus would receive an R-rating. The blockbuster film carries a big price tag, and a PG-13 rating would probably mean a much higher take at the box office. However, when Steve spoke with 20th Century Fox CEO Tom Rothman, Rothman said the movie “will not be compromised either way,” and the studio would accept whatever the MPAA handed down.

Update: Steve here. 20th Century Fox has confirmed Prometheus will be rated R for “sci-fi violence including some intense images, and brief language.” Our original story after the jump.

I think this is good. I wouldn't want to compromise the story just to get a PG13 rating and this looks like it's going to be an awesome story.

Its fantastic. Honestly the aliens franchise was watered down a little with the later versus predator films, but most tragically was the preposterous kiddy friendly Terminator Salvation. Remember when Arnie walks up to the guy near the start and punches clean through his stomach? Thats Terminator. Not this weak nonsense McG knocked out

Those films also watered down the Predator as well. The Predators in those films were pussies compared to the other movies. The Predator should have wiped the floor with the Aliens no problem.

Thank goodness. We need to show movie studios that R-rated films can still be good and successful.
