As has been dually noted, fans are less than pleased that The Expendables 2 will arrive in theaters tagged with a PG-13 rating. Those fearing the same neutered fate might happen with Terminator 5 can rest assured, though, that despite Terminator Salvation having a PG-13 rating, Arnold Schwarzenegger's return to this popular franchise will be slapped with a big, fat, juicy, dripping with meat and vicera, red R.
Terminator 5 will be R rated
Those ponies over at theterminatorfans.com reached out to current Terminator franchise rights holders Annapurna Pictures, begging that this upcoming sequel be rescued from "the brink of PG-13 Hell".
In turn, Megan Ellison, owner and president of Annapurna Pictures, made a statement promising that this would not be a Terminator for ten-year-old children.
"We can't really tell you guys anything about Terminator 5 . But it will be an R rated film as God and James Cameron intended."
No further details have been revealed at this time.
Terminator: Genesis comes to theaters July 1st, 2015 and stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K. Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi, Byung-hun Lee, Michael Gladis. The film is directed by Alan Taylor.
