The Wolverine Starts With PG-13 in Cinemas

As Expected They Opted for Mass Compatibility

During the production of The Wolverine, director James Mangold and main actor Hugh Jackman discussed to shoot two versions of the comic adaptation. One "R"-rated and one "PG-13"-rated version. The probability that such a big budget blockbuster would start with an "R" in cinemas was very low, especially when considering that the money has to be hauled in again and that is much likelier if a bigger audience can be attracted.

Would 20th Century Fox be so bold to release its destined box office hit with an "R" rating? The answer to that question is easy: no. The MPAA got to see The Wolverine recently and decided to give it the anticipated PG-13 (for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence, some sexuality and language). The last hopes to see a "hard" Wolverine on the big screen are diminished. There might be a chance left for the upcoming DVD/BD releases to include a harder cut of the movie but several disappointments regarding longer versions in the past few months should be warning enough to not set expectations too high.

The Wolverine starts in US and UK cinemas on July 26th, 2013.
