'Prometheus': new featurette, plus update on certification

By Robbie Graham Silver Screen Saucers

New Prometheus featurette focuses on Ridley Scott...




Also, diehard fans of the Alien franchise might be pleased to know that, contrary to Internet rumours and even hints from Ridley Scott himself, Prometheus may yet be granted an 'R' rating from the MPAA. In a recent interview with MTV, Fox CEO Tom Rothman said "Not one frame of Prometheus will be cut... if that means it’s an R rating, so be it." Last month, Ridley Scott hinted to Empire magazine that in order for his movie to generate maximum profit it would possibly have to go out as a PG-13.

We won't know the age rating for Prometheus for sure until we see it attached to future trailers for the movie or splashed across official posters. For what it's worth, though, Prometheus posters here in the UK are currently being displayed with a "TBC" rating of '15' - the UK equivalent of 'R' (which also covers the UK '18' rating).
