Mad Max: Fury Road With R-Rating in Cinemas?
While the first and second Mad Max films were undoubtedly R-rated territory, they were also made in a time where this rating wasn't that big of a deal. With part 3, that changed drastically since it was made as a PG-13 movie and famous examples of the younger past like Terminator Salvation or Live Free or Die Hard showed that even long-standing franchises that clearly started out as entertainment for grown-ups could become watered-down for younger audiences.
So when Mad Max: Fury Road was announced, fans rejoiced and worried at the same time, especially since the film's budget beyond the $100 million mark usually is a risk too big for studios that want to make money with their end products. The question was whether it would follow the PG-13 footsteps of part 3 or be analogous to the violent parts 1 and 2 with an "R" rating. And while the MPAA still doesn't offer any answer, maybe Rotten Tomatoes is onto something as they currently list the film as being rated "R". This is worth mentioning considering that they usually list other films that are not yet rated as "Unrated". It's a sign of hope and anticipation. Let's hope it still stands after the MPAA announces the eventual classification.
