AvP 15-Certificate for UK?

I was just on the IMDb boards and noticed that user, Crewsally, had posted a link to a page on the British Board of Film Classification. According to that article a 23 minute Making-Of Alien vs Predator Documentary (for a potential DVD) has gained a 15 certificate in the UK.

This has definitely lifted my spirits as I presumed a PG-13 rating equals a 12-certificate. This means that the movie must at least receive a 15 in the UK but there is still a chance that it will get a PG13 in the US.

    COME ON FOLKS, TO MANY ARE PREOCUPPIED BY THE FILMS RATING, BUT WHAT OF THE ACTUAL MOVIE ITS SELF?   The movie, thats all, THE - MOV - IE is what were all going to see not some stupid rating!  Keep that in mind people ....  .... the movie.   8)

    Well i saw that traila on 5 different channels, fox, teletoon, tsn, mtv, and i dont remember the last one.   And they all said that it was not yet rated. None said that it was R NOR 13. So its not official yet. And about those sites that says its R or 13, we had ALOT of these few weeks back remember?? We shouldnt believe a site exep the avp-movie.com. They will tell us what is goin on. I wont trust any other film site, i dont care if its the official site of the US, for me they r just like the 20 or so other sites that said that it was R , 13, R, 13 ...  This unfortunately is maybe goin in for a 13. But if the documentary is 15 ??? and the film 13??!!   man i will want to see that documentary. And even if its 13, we will see alot of gore, most of the gore in tha book is alien and pred, not much of red blood. Some scenes yes but not that much. AR should had been 13, just like A3. And P1, for alot of ppl, these were 13 material, not R . Violence is everywhere on tv, kids r now ok with it. I dont think that gore will make a rating switch that much, a " f**k " will, but maybe not gore anymore. There wont be any sexual thing in this, nor many coarse language, just 2 aliens beating the crap out of each other, with a lil ketchup on top of that. It will not be a human slaughter house, just a battlefield btw 2 space creatures. This will be good even if 13, a chop of the 2 franchise's honor will have go into the drain, but it will still be AVP for god sake!   Just wait to see the final Rating AND result.

    Don't know what u are so worried about... it was only a documentary that got the 15 certificate... i doubt that it included the most gruesome scenes of avp... so why care?  by the way... it really suxx that avp won't be released until november here in germany... can't wait to see this movie and get forget all these pg-13 rumors...
  5. XxSaNdMaNxX
    maybe if u guys start seeing FOX channel alil more ull see that it says PG13 becuz i saw last nighht when i was watching mad tv and even the tv iz alil diffrent then the one that said this film iz not rated ........... or like predfan said go to that website......
  6. Predatorfan2004
    Jesus christ you ppl. I tell you IT IS OFFICALLY R and u r still brooding over the pg-13 rating. LOOK AT CINEMARK.COM. CINEMARK IS TEH OFFICIAL US MOVIE THEATRE COMPANY. THEY GET THE FINAL RATING BEFORE IT IS REALEASED. LOOK FOR CHRIST'S SAKES.

    Oh well, i guess that kinda sucks if its gonna be a pg-13, but that doesnt mean it is going to be a crap movie. As long as its aliens & predators there is bound to be a certain amount of violence 'n gore.  Im just over the moon that here in the UK its a 15 (hopefully)    ;D     ;D  
  8. Cookies
    Well when i think aliens could have gotton away from being a pg13 movie.  THe only bad scene is when bishop gets ripped apart but then again theres no blood.
  9. Torch
    I just saw that exact same tv spot on Mad TV and indeed it said pg-13.  I'm at a lost for words.  I'm so pissed right now that I could go on a rampage.  I was hoping that AVP was gonna get an R-rating so that we could see some serious bloodshed, but now that looks highly unlikely.  I don't know about any of you, but I did not wait 14 years to see a watered-down Alien/Predator movie that could have been decent. This is terrible news, especially for gore maniacs like myself.  C'mon this is ALIENS & PREDATORS going to war with humans in the middle- how can you possibly have little or no chestbursting, spine ripping, acid blood, brains getting pierced with wristblades, intestines getting torn from the bodies, all with a PG-13 rating and still expect to be a good entertaining movie?  Exactly, YOU CANT!!!  So, it wouldn't surprise me one damn bit if we, (as loyal fans), walk into AVP, watch it, and come out of the theater very dissapointed.  But you know what, nobody is really to blame except those damn *sshole Fox execs.  I wish death upon each and every one of them who agreed to make AVP a PG-13, and damn everybody to hell who supported a PG-13.  You know, if Fox didn't want to make this for the fans and just wanted to make money off of "the new generation" (the younger audiences, then they should've never even bothered of making it in the first place.

    To people who still see the 'this film is not yet rated" sign...  I bet Fox got sick of people asking about the rating, so they rushed the new commercial out to the fox related stations to give the fans the final proof they need. (then just let all the other stations and the official website lag behind). The rating was *most definitely* there during MadTV(fox)'s commercial break.
  11. Predatorfan2004
    ITS R! just found out! the major theatre company cinemark who runs most of the theaters in teh US has posted on its website that teh movie is R! look at www.cinemark.com. problem: the movie is only an hour and a half.
  12. El Demonio Cazador
    Adam: Paul did have a choice, NOT accepting the project.... that's exactly what I was talking about!!! He didn't have the power to make the movie he "wanted" instead he goes for the credit and the money....just becuase it's cool to direct an Alien/Pred movie... Don't be stupid.... And you're talking about Drama movies wtf???... this is Sci Fi Horror.... besides if the movie is indeed the same as the novel, it's not gonna be the real deal, a cool one of course, but a light verision
  13. AdamJZ
    El Demonio Cazador, shut the f**k up...its not like paul anderson had a choice, Fox and the editors and the MPAA make the desision, I mean comon! the pelican bried, and conspiricy theroy were R and they should have been PG! you can never trust the ratings these days, There are plenty of mildly gory, scary, and great PG-13 movies out there, Hell if you took all of the language out of aliens, it would be PG-13, maybe R.  But watch the movie before you judge it.
  14. tribalcore
    i still cant believe it...anderson did it again..he ruined something that should of never been f**ked with...im sorry guys but like u guys as well at least most of you i have been waiting for this a very long time and to found out its pg 13 cant believe it. like i said on my post before...i saw the commercial and it said striclty pg-13 im so hurt. i know i sound like a pussy but its just notgonna be the same. he did it he ruined . both franchsies just my be over. MOTHER F*CKER!!!!!!! ERRRRRRRRRRRRR *punches hole in wall*

  18. El Demonio Cazador
    IT'S NOT ABOUT THE CURSING OBVIOUSLY IT'S NOT ABOUT THE SEX.... IT'S JUST THAT THIS ARE THE MEANEST ALIENS IN MOVIE CINEMA AND P.A. IS DELIVERING US THE LIGHT VERSION OF THIS....THAT SUCKS!!! IF YOU'VE READ THE NOVEL YOU'LL NOTICE THAT AS WELL, IT'S A LIGHT VERSION OF THE CREATURES... OF THEIR ORIGINS,  THE PRED IS A HUNTER, A MEAN ONE, A SAVAGE ONE!!  HE SKINS HIS PREYS AND RIPS THE SKULL  AND BACKBONE OUT OF THEIR BODIES, THATS WHAT THEY DO!!! IF NOS IS JUST ANOTHER GUY IN A SUT JUMPIN AND SHOOTIN.... THE ALIEN IS A MEAN SPIRITED KILLER MACHINE, AND IT DOESNT CARE WHO IS IN FRONT, SO IF THEY JUST SCREAM AND MOVE THEIR CLAWS IS JUST AN ANIMATRONIC GONE BAD.... I DON'T KNOW IF SOME OF U GUYS GET THE POINT.... ITS LIKE HAVING DARTH VADER WITHOUT A LIGHTSABER, OR FREDDY KRUEGER "APPARENTLY" KILLING PEOPLE...  I MENA, I'M SURE THE EFFECTS WILL BE COOL, AND IT'LL HAVE A LOT OF ACTION AND COOL GADGETS FROM THE PREDS AND AMAZING SCENES BUT, IT WOULD STILL BE A QUEER VERSION OF THE MOST GRUESOME KILLING ALIENS IN MOVIE HISTORY... THATS FAKE AND P.A. KNOWS IT, BUT HE'S JUST ANOTHER CORPORATE'S BITCH.... I DON'T MEAN TO BE RUDE, BUT HE'S BETRAYING EVEN HIMSELF, MOST OF HIS MOVIES ARE PRETTY GORY.... SO...THIS IS JUST A SHAME....BUT I SAW IT COMMING SINCE I WAS READING THE NOVEL SO I'M NOT SURPRISED....  I'M STILL EXCITED THOUGHT, AND I'M GONNA GO SEE IT BUT I'M DISAPPOINTED.... I MEAN....WTF? EVEN THE VIDEOGAME IS FOR MATURE AUDIENCES...
  19. Hell Alien
    Well, ok then, im waitin to see that trailer on tv to be sure but if is this way then fine. It will be seen by more ppls. It will only maybe make more money.   AND THIS IS NOT DOWN IN THE DUST YET !! So quit your f**kin " this serie is dead already " attitude. You havent seen the thing yet. It might surprise alot of ppl. I will c this movie , and i will go there with a neutral attitude. I dont care if its 13 now, its a shame that pa wasnt able to do it R, but maybe that you will c the gore and the things you wanted to see in this movie anyway. You will not c any sex in this, you might not hear that much of " f**ks " and " son of a bitch " in it, but you will c action, you will c green, yellow and red blood in this for sure. It will be a blockbuster and it will be good. Go at it with this attitude. You will enjoy it more.
  20. Oh
    Hmmm Im going to watch Aliens, Predator SE and Predator 2, enjoy the blood and guts while I can.  Then I'll come back and read the 10000000000000000000000000000 000000000000000  comments in this thread about the rating/bitching/flaming etc..    :D

    giger has nothing to do with the designs anymore.  James cameron is the one who came up with the queen for future reference ( with the help of winston, but he just rendered it).  Its easy to emulate a style if you have something to go by.
  22. El Demonio Cazador
    OK SO THE TV SPOTS HAVE IT, AND PLANET AVP CLAIMS TO HAVE RECIEVED AN EMAIL FROM FOX, AND THAT THE MOVIE IS INDEED PG-13....  END OF THE STORY....P.A.KNEW IT!!! HE JUST f**kED UP THE FRANCHISE.... THERE U GO, FIRST AND LAST AVP MOVIE... TOO BAD.... WERE GONNA SEE "QUEER EYE FOR THE PRED GUY" OR "ALIEN VS PRED: NO CARBS, NO SUGAR. NO CHOLESTEROL, NO EVIL"  I'M SO UPSET.... BUT NOT SURPRISED, P.A. WAS SO BLINDED BY BEING IN CHARGE OF THE PROJECT, THAT HE DECIDED TO SACRIFICE THE FRANCHISE AND PLEASE FOX IN ORDER TO GET HIS NAME ON THE CREDITS.... THAT SUCKS!!!.... NOW I'M GLAD THAT WINSTON AND GIGER WEREN'T INVOLVED.....
  23. Oh
    Yeah Im disappointed that he turned his back on us fans, cause he said it wouldn't be lower than R.... also he said it won't be a 90min film.. I wonder if he was lying about that too..    :-\     >:D  
  24. RyanPoli
    Predgirl, I saw it on tv, they wouldnt just put up a rating on tv if they werent sure.  Ever think the mpaa hasnt updated their site yet?  And perhaps they wont till monday?  You never know.  Either way, its PG13, its time for everyone to face the facts and just rememeber what PA said about it being R...and now its not.  Classic Paul Anderson right there.
  25. Oh
    fewwww, I feel better knowing thats its a 15 in my homeland of the good old UK, cause I remember watching bad boys 2 also rated 15, it had tons of swearing/gore/nudity he he it probably should have been an 18.  Yes around 60% of 15s in the UK are R in America, although it seems that it is PG13 if people have seen the trailer in the US.  Put it this way I guess you have to watch and find out how it turns out.  I always thought cause its more Alien/Predator fighting they can get away with it, but its only Human deaths that cause the rating to go up.
  26. Predgirl
    Well I was on the MPAA site and it still has nothing about the movie being rated yet.  I checked it and yet again put AVP and nothing.  So its not offical yet I live in America so I guess its different in the UK.  I do feel sorry that you have to wait until October though that sounds kind of stupid.
  27. RyanPoli
    Well here in northern Virginia its Fox 5, but I doubt it matters, just watch some tv and youll see it.  \"well guys look at it this way, what rating can you give two aliens dismembering themselves? Green blood isn\'t technically real blood\"  ^exactly, ive been saying this all along.  As soon as it was rumored to be PG13 months ago I wasnt all that disapointed.  Sure, id prefer R but whatever...we see a chestbursting through predator vision.  And this is ALIEN vs PREDATOR....thats what we want to see aliens and predators fighting.  The humans are just fodder.  Sure I want them to see as much blood and gore as possible, but remember, this is an action film with horror undertones.  Not the other way around.  Too many people hear AvP and they make up this whole idea in their head of what the movie should be.    \"well alien, aliens, A3, AR, Predator, and P2 were rated R, therefor avp will\" - this was always the funniest argument.  It just goes to show you also, avp is a different kind of movie.  We have been told over and over its action oriented, just watch the trailers and see the huge explosions, the slow mo of the predator throwing the alien, the super long wrist blade extensions....does that look SCARY to you?  No, its pulse pumping excitement, which is why PG13 can work.  And I know the site says its not rated, and mpaa.org still doesnt have it listed up, but how long will you people ignore the facts?  It was on the end of the trailer I saw on tv, trust me, its real.
