Terminator: Genysis gets a possible rating… cue the rage

In an already crowded summer movie season, it is easy to understand why someone might forget the upcoming re-launch of the Terminator Franchise. 

Terminator: Genisys has had a rough time with the press over the last several months. This is mostly due to reports of troubles behind-the-scenes. Despite this though, I enjoyed the first two trailers that were released. Though I do think the second trailer may have given away too much.

However, it seems Terminator may have made another mistake. It seems that this latest entry in the franchise may be PG-13.

A report from stated: “Our source close to the production of the movie has assured us all along that the movie will be Rated PG-13… we have described what we have witnessed and understand as fantasy style/comic book violence as being the back door out of a harder rating for the movie, CGI characters dealing the blows is something running throughout the movie, not just in the Arnold Vs Arnold battle. We asked our source again more recently and they are still sticking with PG-13; with our source describing it as “something the studios prefer to do for marketing reasons”. Our understanding and translation of such a statement is…  ‘cash grab’”.

In spite of this, it is worth noting that the marketing material for Terminator: Genisys, does state that the film is not yet rated. With that being said, it is understandable why this may worry some of the fan base. There is only one other film in the franchise to share this rating, and that is Terminator :Salvation. Given how poorly that film was received, Genysis should be taking every opportunity to distance itself from its predecessor.

My name is James and I am a long time fan of Movies, TV and Comics. I am currently a student, wrapping up my education at Aberystwyth University. I have an undergraduate degree in film and television and I’m working on my Masters in scriptwriting. My personal favourite comic character is the Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), and I view the film adaptation as one of the most horrifying experiences I have had in a movie theatre. As far as film and television go, I am usually willing to give any genre a try, as long as the project is well executed.
