‘Terminator Genisys’ & ‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’ in Today’s MPAA Ratings Bulletin

ON

MPAA ratings for Terminator: Genisys and Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation
Latest MPAA Ratings: BULLETIN NO: 2378

Today’s ratings bulletin isn’t packed with big name titles, but it does include two of the biggest blockbusters left to hit theaters this summer, both earning PG-13 ratings and both carrying some “partial nudity”.

First is Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, and its PG-13 rating should come as no surprise as every film in the Mission franchise has received that rating, but the PG-13 rating for the latest Terminator might have some fans a bit disappointed even if they all expected it.

The PG-13 for Terminator Genisys makes it the second of five films in the Terminator franchise to hit theaters with a lower MPAA rating. Terminator Salvation was also rated PG-13 back in 2009, but we’re talking about a franchise that was really built on the idea of being a hard-edged, sci-fi action thriller so it’s always a bit interesting when we see studios hoping to appeal to an audience that really has no business even knowing what the Terminator franchise is all about.

Also in today’s bulletin we have a pair of upcoming Radius releases in Goodnight Mommy and When Animals Dream, both of which are foreign language horror features. Along those lines we also have Robert EggersThe Witch, which A24 picked up out of Sundance and is said to be another possibly great, low budget horror film hitting theaters later this year to go with It Follows. We’ll see.
