The RoboCop Remake Is Heading for PG-13

Chris Savage 5 Comments Movie Page: RoboCop (2014)

The RoboCop Remake Is Heading for PG 13RoboCop remake now the film is currently at this years Comic-Con, some details have emerged which point to the remake’s certificate rating, and well, I’m pretty sure you all seen it coming.

The folks over at B-D hit up a group interview which included Director Jose Padilha and stars Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Joel Kinnaman, and Abbie Cornish. During the interview, Padilha reveled the following;

We were shooting the movie to be seen by the broadest possible audience, which means PG-13. This whole idea about ‘RoboCop’ has to be “R” because the first one was amazingly violent… I never really bought into that. You know, ‘The Dark Knight’ was PG-13, so you can get away with a lot.

Samuel L. Jackson then ushered in;

It would be “R” for its time, not “R” now.

I totally get that violence in films will change during its time, but really, RoboCop today would be classified as a PG-13? I mean, the film is filled with ultra-violence and foul language. People basically getting shot and blown to pieces, a dude getting hit with toxic waste, and a rapist getting shot in the meat and potatoes just to name a few.

Sorry, but I still don’t see the original being a PG-13 today. As for the remake? Yeah, I knew it was coming, but just because it’s PG-13, that doesn’t mean we should dismiss it just yet.

          Same thing here. A PG-13 RoboCop? Yeah, maybe kids and M. Bay’s crowd will buy into it, but that’s about it…

        Gosh. Has Sam Jackson actually SEEN the original Robocop?

        No chance at all of going to see this in the theater. Maybe when it comes out on Netflix. Maybe.
