‘Carrie’, ‘Black Nativity’ and Gandolfini’s ‘Animal Rescue’ in Today’s MPAA Ratings Bulletin


MPAA Ratings for
Latest MPAA Ratings: BULLETIN NO: 2291

Today’s ratings bulletin includes a bit of a surprise by including Bullhead director, Michael R. Roskam‘s follow-up, Animal Rescue, a new crime-drama featuring an impressive cast including Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini, Noomi Rapace and Matthias Schoenaerts. No surprise it’s rated R and I’ve heard some buzz about a particular scene Gandolfini has in the film opposite Hardy that may be worth the price of admission alone.

Additionally is a PG-rating for Kasi LemmonsBlack Nativity and a strong R rating for Kimberly Peirce‘s remake of Carrie starring Chloe Moretz and Julianne Moore.

Also looking down the list I see Takeshi Kitano‘s sequel Beyond Outrage, which, considering the lackluster original, doesn’t seem all that necessary, but Magnolia is going to give it to us and then I thought the PG-rating for Christmas for A Dollar was pretty funny considering it’s for “some mean behavior”, whatever that means.
