Ratings for 'jOBS' and 'Evil Dead' in Today's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

A couple of big titles to discuss

Latest MPAA Ratings: BULLETIN NO: 2257
Latest MPAA Ratings: BULLETIN NO: 2257

Today's batch of ratings is a little light on intriguing titles, but it does include the official rating for Fede Alvarez's Evil Dead remake, which as we learned this morning originally received an NC-17 rating and had to be cut down for its R, something I'm sure will be the talk of all the press junket rounds along with Alvarez's claim there isn't any CGI in the film.

Second is the rating for jOBS starring Ashton Kutcher as the late Apple CEO Steve Jobs, which just came out of Sundance with middling reviews and will be brought to theaters this April.

    It's really a shame that all NC-17 films are cut down to that R-rating. I mean I don't need to see any egregious violence or explicit porno in my movies but I want to see what the filmmaker intended me to see.

    The whole stigma around the rating is a little silly to say the least as there really should be something that's a step above R. 'Argo' and 'The Kings Speech' for instance are 'soft' R ratings while things like Cronenberg's 'Crash' or even like 'Kick-Ass' are 'hard' R. Isn't it a little silly that the MPAA doesn't just make that distinction more clear with the NC-17 rating? If only it could lose the stigma...

      While I agree with the principle, it KILLS the box office prospects of the movies if they go NC-17 or unrated.

      Two movies I can recall going unrated (just bypassing the MPAA since they would have gotten an NC-17) were Hatchet II and Human Centipede II, both of which completely flopped at the box office. In fact, Hatchet II was pulled from the theatres after one weekend because it did so poorly. Check out the following article if you have a minute:

      actually, Cronenberg's 'Crash' was NC-17, unless you saw the "edited for Blockbuster video" version.

        Yeah, that's why I mentioned 'Crash'. 'Midnight Cowbody' was also NC-17, well technically it was called 'X' back then, when it was released and won a Best Picture Oscar.

    I don't think this Evil Dead remake actually received a NC-17. It was never posted on here or the MPAA website, anyhow. I think the filmmakers are just trying to stir up some publicity for their film.

    Anyhow, I've never understood the point of dropping a NC-17 for no rating at all - even with that rating you can get into more theatres than with an Unrated film. I do believe there has to be something about R but not NC-17... it seems we Americans think "adults only" means porn, which makes no sense.
