The Dark Knight Rises Gets PG-13 Rating
The MPAA has recently awarded an official certificate to Nolan's third installment in The Dark Knight Trilogy, and the rating given was PG-13, marking what is said to be the darkest Batman movie series to date as suitable for the entire family.
Before you start worrying that Warner has toned down the film just to get a broader audience, it should be worth remembering that the previous Nolan Bat-film, The Dark Knight, also received a PG-13 even though it featured heavy violence and dark themes.
If anything, having a PG-13 rating will be good for Warner, since it will allow the movie to reach a wider audience, with the studio already expecting the film to be their biggest release this year.
