'Carrie', 'Black Nativity' and Gandolfini's 'Animal Rescue' in Today's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

No surprise, the Carrie remake is R

MPAA Ratings for
Latest MPAA Ratings: BULLETIN NO: 2291

Today's ratings bulletin includes a bit of a surprise by including Bullhead director, Michael R. Roskam's follow-up, Animal Rescue, a new crime-drama featuring an impressive cast including Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini, Noomi Rapace and Matthias Schoenaerts. No surprise it's rated R and I've heard some buzz about a particular scene Gandolfini has in the film opposite Hardy that may be worth the price of admission alone.

Additionally is a PG-rating for Kasi Lemmons' Black Nativity and a strong R rating for Kimberly Peirce's remake of Carrie starring Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore.

Also looking down the list I see Takeshi Kitano's sequel Beyond Outrage, which, considering the lackluster original, doesn't seem all that necessary, but Magnolia is going to give it to us and then I thought the PG-rating for Christmas for A Dollar was pretty funny considering it's for "some mean behavior", whatever that means.

    Apparently there's some "mean behavior" in Christmas for A Dollar, i shall have to avert my eyes during that bit.

    Just when I'm starting to get used to the MPAA again, they list something like "a menacing situation."

    Glad I'm not the only one looking forward to Carrie, and I thought for a second it said in the paragraph it was pg-13 so glad I was wrong
