Nolan's 'The Dark Knight Rises' Lands a PG-13 Rating, As Expected
Briefly: It should come as no surprise that Chris Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, which has already been screened for Warner Bros execs and apparently the MPAA, has received a PG-13 rating. Collider reports that a NolanFans forum member got a screenshot (here) of the official PG-13 rating on the WB exhibitors' website, stating it's rated for "intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality and language." The Bane prologue was already rated PG-13 and this isn't a big surprise, though still intriguing to hear. Once again Nolan pulls off a PG-13 with ease, though I'm sure it's still dark and violent.
