Latest MPAA Ratings: BULLETIN NO: 2128

Malick's 'Tree of Life' gets rated... with a bit of a twist

Today's MPAA ratings deliver one of the most interesting updates to date and not because of the rating but because Terrence Malick's long delayed The Tree of Life has an MPAA rating and instead of listing Apparition as the distributor it lists Cottonwood Pictures, Inc., which is actually the production company.

I put a phone call into the MPAA and they were able to confirm this is Malick's picture, it is finished in terms of music, effects, etc. and it was screened for the Ratings Board within the last of couple of weeks. I wasn't able to get information on a running time and they also have no additional information in terms of how the film will be handled, but in light of recent reports Apparition was being restructured and Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group moving the Kristen Stewart and James Gandolfini feature Welcome To The Rileys from Apparition to Samuel Goldwyn there is no telling what this means for Tree of Life.

With that said, here are the new MPAA ratings from BULLETIN NO: 2128.

    Yes! I am glad that Tree of Life is finally complete...probably my most anticipated film of the year behind Inception.

    Hell yes for Predators. Seeing it tomorrow night. Between this rating and all the positive reviews, it really could be a surprisingly good movie.

    The Tree of Life has a weak rating, Welcome to the Rileys still has a chance to make a splash, Predators cut it WAY close, and I can't wait to laugh my head off at the soon-to-come-but-obvious-it-will-come R-rating for Piranha 3D.
