The Wolverine - Extended Cut Really More Violent?

German Age Rating the Same for Theatrical Cut

The Wolverine was panned by critics and fans because it opted for a PG-13 rating in order to appeal to a mass audience. They were hoping for some grittier content that would portray the character better and resemble its counterpart from the comics. Director James Mangold implied that the Unrated Extended Cut might deliver on that note some more. However, there's still room for doubt and that is even more fueled now that we know the rating the EC has been given by the German ratings board FSK.

The previous artwork of the collector's edition that contains the longer version had a "FSK 16" sticker on it. 20th Century Fox Germany was obviously expecting that the additional 12 minutes contain enough footage that would increase the classification (the theatrical version got an "FSK 12"). However, the Extended Cut got a "12", as well.

And considering that the German ratings board is considerably more sensitive to violence than the MPAA, this might be an indication that The Wolverine won't turn out that badass in the Extended Cut, either. Of course, that wasn't expectable since 12 more minutes of material can rarely be just violent extensions but you shouldn't get your hopes up too much. Our comparison will do the rest later on. You can pre-order The Wolverine at Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk.
