‘Blade Runner 2049’ Gets an R Rating

Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming Blade Runner 2049 has been handed an R rating, great news for those of us anticipating the film; tricky news for the movie’s box office prospects.

According to the report at The Playlist, Blade Runner 2049 is rated R “for violence, some sexuality, nudity & language.”

To be fair, I never expected anything less than R, but you never know these days. Plenty of remakes and long-gap sequels have been watered down in order to expand the prospective audience. The Robocop remake was PG-13 for god’s sake, so you never know…

Then there’s the fact that the original Blade Runner was rated R. Those were in the years before the PG-13 rating existed, so a non-kids movie was one or the other (hell, Jaws was PG!). Ridley Scott’s original would not be rated R today, so that tells me that Villeneuve’s sequel will hit the violence a little harder than the original.
