On the heels of the premiere of the first footage from Mad Max: Fury Road at the SXSW Film Festival the film has now scored a hard-R rating from the MPAA for “intense sequences of violence throughout, and for disturbing images.” That should make fans of the franchise happy as we are now just under two months away from the film’s May 15 release.
Also in today’s bulletin in Fox Searchlight’s Sundance acquisition and Oscar hopeful Brooklyn, David Gordon Green‘s Manglehorn starring Al Pacino, the new Melissa McCarthy comedy Spy (read Mike’s review from SXSW right here) and a re-rate of Johnny Depp‘s Mortdecai, most likely for home video release.
You’ll also notice an R-rating for a movie called Tooken, which is, as you probably guessed, a Taken parody starring the likes of Donnie Wahlberg, Lukas Haas and Jenny McCarthy.
Check out the complete bulletin below.
