Fox Confirms Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’ Will Get R-Rating



It’s okay, everyone, our long national nightmare is over – we finally know that Ridley Scott‘s heavily anticipated maybe-prequel to Alien, Prometheus, will be rated R. So much for toning down the “sci-fi violence” to get a younger crowd into theaters (though the odds of scads of thirteen-year-olds showing up for the film seem somewhat slim). After a few weeks of chatter revolving on whether or not the film would end up with a PG-13 rating to presumably pull in larger crowds, a pre-sale ticket posted on IMDb (thanks to Collider) revealed the film to be rated R, with 20th Century Fox confirming the news.

The film will be rated R for “sci-fi violence including some intense images, and brief language.” Language! Heavens me! 

If you’ve been living under a rock for a few months, Prometheus has fast become one of the year’s most buzzed-about films. Hell, it even defeated both The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises to be our Most Anticipated Film of the Summer. You can sate your appetite for Prometheus before it opens on June 8 with a look back at every Prometheus-centric post we’ve penned over the past few months right HERE (prepare yourself, there’s quite a bit).

The film stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Guy Pearce, Rafe Spall, Sean Harris, Logan Marshall-Green, and Charlize Theron.

I just wanted to let you all know... I gave up awhile ago of posting things related to Prometheus. First it was a drip, then they turned on the faucet a bit more, but of late, it's been like a fire hose.

I no longer look at them. They are giving away way to much info. I want to be surprised when this bad boy arrives. I've been limiting myself to just news at times. All the viral stuff is overwhelming. Don't know if that's brilliant or marketing or what. From looking around and talking to folks, unless your not a fan of this kind of stuff, people barely know it's even coming.

It's a double edge sword. If you're a stickler like me about Spoilers, then it's best to just wait it out. I really do a good when hiding from as much spoiler content as I can, be it Movies, TV or Comic Books. I've had my Entertainment Weekly subscription since 1991 and whenever there was an article about anything I was remotely interested in, I would paperclip the article and read the rest of the mag and then toss it into the 'read later' pile. When I saw Movie X or TV Show X, I would read the afterwards.

I am nuts.

So Chip introduced me to the Rewind guys whoe dissect trailers to the nth degree. Kinda cool, kinda spoiler integrated. So they recently did one of the Prometheus trailers. I was so torn. In one way they reveal things, but the other edge of the sword is helping prep what I am sure is a complicated flick. Going in the theater may help with this info. Then again may ruin the surprises.


I am so psyched for this flick.

I am still debating calling in sick to see it the first day. So if my boss is reading this... Just kidding.

The sci-fi actioner starring Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba and Logan Marshall-Green earns $737,588 from 30,000 ticket presales at the BFI Imax theater.

Scott's movie, starring a galaxy of stars including Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba and Logan Marshall-Green, has earned £470,977 ($737,588) from the 30,000 tickets booked.

By the beginning of May, the BFI Imax said it had booked 18,287 tickets in its first full week of presales at the theater. At that time, ticket sales translated into £293,312 ($474,687), the highest-grossing week ever.
Now, one week out from the movie's rollout, presales continue to smash records posted by James Cameron's Avatar and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.

The Fox-distributed movie marks Scott’s return to sci-fi, a genre he is credited with helping to define with Alien (1979) and Blade Runner (1982).

Prometheus details the story of a team of explorers who discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

The movie opens in Imax with midnight screenings May 31.

1. The Rewind Theater is usually speculative on their part. If it's obvious, there is no getting around it. But when they start to anaylyze stuff in the background or emblems on uniforms, etc....it's more "I hope it's this and that...." then anything concrete. Having said that, I'm staying away from the Prometheus Rewind Theater Trailer.

2. I'm not even going to attempt to see this on opening day or week for that matter. It's going to be packed and you already know how I feel about having to share armrest with strangers. Also, I have to be able to kick my feet up on the chair in front of me to get comfortable and I can't do that with someone sitting in front of me. Well, I can, but that leads to a brawl, black eyes and missing teeth.

Aw crap, that's right. Schools out isn't it. Sombeach... I'll have to rethink this.

Pre-Order PROMETHEUS On Blu-Ray And See The Movie For Free

Quote
Amazon.com are running a deal where the first 5000 customers to pre-order Prometheus on Blu-ray or Blu-ray 3D from yesterday will be eligible to receive a code (valid until August 31st) which can be redeemed for a ticket to see the movie at participating theaters in the US. Still not upgraded to a Blu-ray player? (seriously?!) Well, the deal isn't available for anyone who pre-orders the DVD unfortunately. Currently, there are no details on when the Blu-ray is released or what special features will be contained on the disc. Prometheus a fantastic film (my review will be up here on CBM later today) so this is a deal which is well worth taking advantage of.

I'm sure it's already sold out. Meaning family and friends that have connections to whoever is producing the DVD's already have the inside track.

I love my wife so much I could slap her. Suddenly out of nowhere she asks when ‘we’ are going to see Prometheus. After I dropped my drink, my head exploded and stuffed my brains back into skull, I quietly, but quizzically asked her “Huh?”

I then proceeded to follow up that question with “Do you know what Prometheus is about?”
“Uh No, but I like Charlize Theron”.
“Um, OK… Do you know it’s related to the Alien films… you know, those films you don’t like to watch?”
“Uh... No… But I like Charlize Theron.”
“When does it get here?”
“It starts Friday”
“Are you taking the day off?”
“I was thinking about it… but I think it’s going to be very crowded with kids out of school”
“We could go early Sunday Morning. It shouldn’t be bad then”
“But you don’t like these kinds of movies or crowds”
“It’s got Charlize Theron in it. It should be pretty good”
(Blmmmmph… my brain exploded again… gotta stuff it back in again. Please tell me how I married an insane woman)
“Believe it or not I’m thinking I want to see it in 3D… can you handle 3D?”
“Um… ya”
“Tell me again why you now want to see Prometheus?”
“To see it with you”
“Ah honey, you’re the greatest.”

That last line I made up. This whole conversation twisted my spine. Looks like I’ll be spending some bucks so my wife can see Charlize Theron… in 3D no less.
