Godzilla vs. Kong receives PG-13 rating from MPAA
We may still be waiting to see whether the highly-anticipated fourth installment in Legendary’s MonsterVerse will make its slated November release, but it appears Godzilla vs. Kong is on track as it has received an official PG-13 rating from the MPAA for “intense sequences of creature violence/destruction and brief language,” according to Bloody Disgusting.
The most recent film in Legendary’s MonsterVerse, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, hit theaters last summer. It ended with Godzilla taking his rightful place as the ruler of all Titans. Unfortunately, the movie was a financial disappointment, grossing only $385.9 million against a budget estimated to be as high as $200 million. Next year, Godzilla and King Kong will also fight Marvel Studios’ Eternals (which opens on November 6) for box office glory.
Adam Wingard is directing Godzilla vs. Kong, which serves as a follow-up to both King of the Monsters and Kong: Skull Island. The film began shooting last November and wrapped principal photography back in April. Millie Bobby Brown, Kyle Chandler, and Zhang Ziyi will all reprise their roles from King of the Monsters. Some of the new cast members include Julian Dennison, Brian Tyree Henry, Jessica Henwick, Demián Bichir, and Rebecca Hall.
