The biggest title of note in today's batch of MPAA ratings is Zack Snyder's Superman film, Man of Steel, which like producer Christopher Nolan's Batman franchise is rated PG-13. No surprise there, but I'm sure some will be interested in the reason for the rating, which is "for intense sequences of sci-fi violence, action and destruction, and for some language." Whatever that could mean, I'm not too sure, but there you have it.
Additionally we have a rating for Raman Bahrani's At Any Price (watch the trailer here), the upcoming thriller Dark Skies, the Weinstein's animated film Escape From Planet Earth and a late-in-the-game re-rate (well, actually just a new reason) for this Friday's comedy release, Movie 43.
Finally comes a rating for a movie titled Unfinished Song, which is actually the new title for the Weinstein's Song for Marion, which was once thought as a potential Oscar contender, but sort of fizzled and faded after premiering at the Toronto Film Festival last year.
With all that said, here is the complete batch of latest MPAA ratings from Bulletin #2256.
