Prometheus Gets an R Rating

Fans of the original chestbursting scene in Ridley Scott's Aliens will be glad to know that the sort-of-kinda prequel Prometheus has been given an R-Rating, which means there's room for gory-splattery scenes.

"I can assure the fans absolutely they can take it that the film will not be compromised either way," said Fox CEO Tom Rothman last month. "So if that means that the film is R, then it’ll be an R. If it’s PG-13, then it’ll be a PG-13. But it will not be compromised."

The new R-stub on Prometheus lends credibility to Fox's promise, and the trailers seem to show that the movie probably needs an R in order to tell the story in all its gory details. Prometheus will open in the UK on 1 June 2012.
