‘Iron Man 3’, Whedon’s ‘Ado’ and ‘Saving Mr. Banks’ in Today’s MPAA Ratings Bulletin


MPAA Ratings for 'Iron Man 3', 'Much Ado About Nothing' and 'Saving Mr. Banks'
Latest MPAA Ratings: BULLETIN NO: 2267

Today’s MPAA ratings bulletin includes your latest PG-13 rating for a Marvel movie, this time it’s Iron Man 3 with its sci-fi violence and suggestive content as well as the already released Welcome to the Punch.

However, there are a couple of other interesting titles, first is Joss Whedon‘s Much Ado About Nothing, which will hit theaters on June 7, but will first serve as the opening night film at the 2013 Seattle International Film Festival on May 16 with Whedon and stars Alexis Denisof, Amy Acker, Nathan Fillion and Clark Gregg expected to attend the red carpet premiere.

Finally we have Saving Mr. Banks from The Blind Side director John Lee Hancock starring Tom Hanks as Walt Disney, telling the 14-year courtship for the rights to Mary Poppins from author P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson). The film is set for a December 20 release, but I wonder, with Captain Phillips coming up as another Hanks starring vehicle, would it be possible for Disney to send this one to Cannes to get a jump start on a Hanks Oscar campaign? Doubtful, but it’s fun to spitball.
