Terry Crews Talks ‘The Expendables 2’ PG-13 Rating

We also have a PG-13 fan-made trailer that shows the cast of this upcoming sequel having fun with swear words.

Had enough already with the PG-13 rating that has been slapped on The Expendables 2? Nope! It looks like fans aren't willing to let this one go. And can you blame them? This was supposed to be a film for adults made by the toughest action crew around. But the sequel is going to cater to a younger fan base, and more than a few folks are calling fowl. This outcry has obviously been heard by the actors in the film. And so far, those who've spoke out on the matter are defending this decision to drop the R rating.

Terry Crews was the latest to speak out on The Expendables 2's PG-13 rating, calling it necessary. We have his quote for you, followed by yet another angry fan's creativeness with an The Expendables 2 PG-13 trailer remix. Stick around for the second half, where Chuck Norris proves he's softened quite a bit in his old age.

This is what Terry Crews had to say, basically blaming Eat, Pray, Love for the new rating.

"It's PG-13. Do you really think only men 40 and over saw the first one? The kids bought tickets to Eat, Pray, Love and walked right into The Expendables. In fact, they were YOUR kids. I get it. I really do. But boobs and blood do not a good movie make. You don't want to go. Don't go. I respect it. But you will miss the greatest thing you've ever seen."

Okay. So we should never have another R rated movie. Gotcha. At least we have this fan-made trailer to remember all the good times.

The Expendables 2 was released August 17th, 2012 and stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger. The film is directed by Simon West.

    It would be pretty funny if the PG-13 rating was just a prank or something. I higly doubt that it is but it would be pretty hilarious.

    Hey thanks guys, i am the fan who made this Boycott PG-13 EX2 Trailer, only true action fans can understand our anger for seeing our favorite dream franchise go down to the toilet after we have supported it so much (by seeing it multiple times with friends in theaters and blurays)

    Anyways, if you guys wanna see the "clean" version of this trailer,

    As well as all the official BOYCOTT A PG-13 EX2 posters, arts, videos and the petition,

    All the links are in the "about me" section of my profile.

    So feel free to share them and blast them everywhere until we get what we want and deserve :

    What happened to the good buzz this movie was getting before the rating was announced? Funny trailer, though. I love the part from Demolition Man. That's kind of where we are getting with movies today it seems.

    Nice job man. That made me laugh. I can't believe that we are getting a watered down Expendables movie after the first one was so good. Is this really because Chuck Norris was added? I wish they would make a good R rated movie like the old classics.

    Crews is an ass! To think he was my favorite guy in Expendables too. More sell out crap from Hollywood.

    PG-13 Expendables movie is a crime against humanity and you can bet your black tiny penis, Terry, that Sly and the rest of the dudes will regret this just like he regret doing "Rocky V" and Brigitte Nielsen.

    R-Rating > 100 feet of crap > Bollywood movies > Eli Roth > PG-13

    Totally awesome trailer! I can't believe they are releasing Expendables 2 with a PG-13 rating. Still just as shocked now as I was when I first heard the news. What kind of hardcore (throw back to the 80's) action movie is released as PG-13?!

    No way I'm watching a PG-13 Expendables!

  23. Wynnebag

    Great trailer! That sums up what all we action fans are feeling right now. What's wrong with Terry? He was one of the best things about part 1 because of the bad ass violence anmd action. A PG-13 Expendables just won't work.

    I used to joke with my friends that the day when Sly Stallone movies and Expendables movies were turned into a kids' movies would be the day that action movies would die forever. I can't believe it actually happened. This sucks so bad! R rated movies are # 1 at the movies all the time. I'm not watching this PG-13 crap!

    Crews talks like the movie was a bomb because of Julia Roberts. The thing made almost $300,000,000!!! How does that make PG-13 necessary for this one? Did Crews actually watch EX1? The violence and action were great! There is no way they could make action scenes on the level of the first movie without an R rating. Screw this movie. I'm not watching it. Damn you Norris. You killed the Expendables franchise.

    I agree with @kguy Jesus people, enough with the bitching over some stupid movie rating!! It really shows how mature you guys really are! Their have been plenty of PG-13 rated action movies that were great: Live Free or Die Hard, Mission: Impossib;e- Ghost Protocol, and many more, but considering that i'm sure they only took out the blood and gore and trimmed down the swearing, you'll still have a bad ass manly action flick! Did you know, if Alien came out in modern times today, it would have been rated PG-13, would all of you complain over that too?!

    This is a disgrace! PG-13 AGAIN! You've got to be kidding me. I was gonna watch this at the movies but i'll wait to download it for free now! So there you go movie studios you just lost my money

    People go back and look at the work Norris has done in the past. Very very few of his movies had a lot of bad language and blood. Get over it. If it was such a big deal you would be blaming Stallone since it was his final decision not Norris.
