Prometheus - No cuts for the MPAA rating

Fans don't have to fear censorship

It's time for another round in the never ending story surrounding Prometheus and its MPAA rating that has so much meaning for other countries as well since they will get the same cut of the movie.

Ridley Scott's Alien prequel creates serious buzz not only with its content but also with the controversy regarding the MPAA rating. While a PG-13 means a more harmless version that would generate a broader audience, an R rating would please fans and stay true to the Alien franchise that wasn't entertainment for children, either.

Many fans feared that a PG-13 would mean a watered-down and possibily even censored version for cinemas. Fox chief Tom Rothman now clears that up with a clear statement he gave to MTV.com:

"The rating board has not opined yet and it will go in to the board soon, [...] This I can tell you and I can tell all the fans, not one frame will be cut. The movie will be what it should be. We will not cut a frame of the film, [...] We will stand behind it 100 percent and if that means it's an R, then so be it, because not an ounce, not a percentage are we going to compromise the film."

Even though this doesn't mean that we don't get a PG-13 after all, at least we don't have to worry about censorship explicitly for this rating. That should count for something, right?
