The Dark Knight Rises has received an official rating from the MPAA, with the finale of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy scheduled to screen as a family-friendly PG-13 movie.
The certification means the film and The Dark Knight have similar ratings within the US, so anticipate a 12A certificate when it arrives in the U.K.
According to the exhibitor site of Warner Bros, the MPAA came up with the decision due to “intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality and language.”
The upcoming movies predecessor, The Dark Knight, hit the headlines for its controversial 12A certification in the U.K., giving several critics the notion that violence within the film and its grim themes were not fit for a family-friendly rating.
The PG-13 certification would be another brilliant and notable success for Warner, seeing to it they achieve the maximum audience possible with their biggest release of the year.
Surely, The Dark Knight Rises will hit movie houses in around 35 territories starting in July, proposing a likely box office record-breaker is drawing up close.
The Dark Knight Rises opens in the UK on July 20 this year.
