RoboCop Remake has its Official PG-13 Rating

What Fans Feared has now Become a Fact

On this year's Comic Con, director Jose Padilha already announced that his RoboCop remake would start with a PG-13 rating in cinemas and that it was produced along the lines of this classification.

We were shooting the movie to be seen by the broadest possible audience, which means PG-13. This whole idea about ‘RoboCop’ has to be “R” because the first one was amazingly violent… I never really bought into that. You know, ‘The Dark Knight’ was PG-13, so you can get away with a lot.

Of course, this was no good news for fans of Paul Verhoeven's very violent original. In the meantime, the MPAA has seen the film and applied the official rating:

Robocop - Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action including frenetic gun violence throughout, brief strong language, sensuality and some drug material.

As always in these matters, it can't be ruled out that the Blu-ray might feature a longer and harder version of the film later on. The potential is clearly visible but it's too early to build up such expectations. First of all, RoboCop starts in US cinemas on February 12th, 2014, while the UK get it a little earlier on February 7th, 2014.
