‘300: Rise of an Empire’, ‘Labor Day’, ‘Grudge Match’ and ‘Last Vegas’ in Today’s MPAA Ratings


MPAA Ratings for 300: Rise of an Empire, Labor Day, Grudge Match and Last Vegas
Latest MPAA Ratings: BULLETIN NO: 2284

It appears 300: Rise Of An Empire will keep with the original’s tradition as a hard R-rating has just arrived for the upcoming sequel which will be hitting theaters next March while today’s other three major releases receiving ratings include two PG-13s and a one-time R that won its appeal and has been dropped down to a PG-13.

First we have the Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro boxing comedy Grudge Match for which I’m expecting a trailer soon as a bootleg version was floating around earlier this week, but was quickly dropped from YouTube. I caught snippets of it as Kevin Hart is seen running around ranting and raving as Sly and Bobby D get in a fight while wearing mo-cap suits, but didn’t watch enough to give any general sense of what it will be like.

Jason Reitman‘s Toronto-bound (and most likely Telluride as well) Labor Day also received an PG-13 rating. Starring Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin, this is a film everyone is going to be looking at in Toronto to see how it will play and where it may fit into the Oscar race. I’ve already been told by a couple people that saw early screenings that it’s a good one so fingers crossed.

Finally, Last Vegas has won its appeal and is no longer rated R, but now the family friendly PG-13.
