One of the most awaited films of DC and Warner Bros, “Suicide Squad” has recently been given a PG-13 rating by the Motion Picture Association of America.
However, the given rating has caused concern for some fans, as the super-villain movie was expected to be given an R-rated rating. The fans are worried that given the low rating, the film won’t be able to live up to the original theme of the comic book and their expectations of the film.
The film was given a PG-13 rating for “sequences of violence and action throughout, disturbing behavior, and suggestive content and language.”
According to David Ayer, the director of the movie, ‘Suicide Squad’ was not really aiming for an R-rating.
“We were always going to hit the PG-13 rating. But the film is meant to be that. It’s got edge, and it’s got attitude. And it’s got its own voice.” said Ayer.
Producer Charles Roven also said that they kept their intention for the film to be PG-13 so it can be consistent with all of the other DC films.
However, Ayer said that if the film gets a sequel, they would push for a rating higher than PG-13, because “It would be worth lobbying for.”
Fans are also worried that they won’t be able to see what the promotional teasers and trailers of the film are giving, but Ayer said that there would be a lot in the movie that would surprise the audience.
‘Suicide Squad’ is set to hit the big screens on August 5, 2016.
