Vin Diesel’s Bloodshot Gets a PG-13 Rating from the MPA

-

We got a new trailer earlier this month, and now the newly-named MPA (Motion Picture Association) has given Vin Diesel’s Bloodshot a PG-13 rating for intense sequences of violence, some suggestive material and language.

Opening in theaters on March 31, 2020, Bloodshot is based on the Eisner and Harvey Award-nominated Valiant Comics title. The character was created in 1992 for Valiant Comics by Kevin VanHook, Bob Layton and Don Perlin.

Vin Diesel stars as Ray Garrison, a soldier recently killed in action and brought back to life as the superhero Bloodshot by the RST corporation. With an army of nanotechnology in his veins, he’s an unstoppable force – stronger than ever and able to heal instantly. But in controlling his body, the company has sway over his mind and memories, too. Now, Ray doesn’t know what’s real and what’s not – but he’s on a mission to find out.

Bloodshot is directed by Dave S. F. Wilson and also stars Eiza Gonzalez (Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & ShawBaby Driver), Sam Heughan (Outlander), Lamorne Morris (New Girl), Toby Kebbell (Kong: Skull Island), Talulah Riley (Westworld), and Guy Pearce (The Hurt Locker). The screenplay was written by Eric Heisserer (Arrival) and Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2) from a story by Wadlow.

The producers are Neal H. Moritz, Toby Jaffe, Dinesh Shamdasani and Vin Diesel. The executive producers include Dan Mintz, Louis G. Friedman, Yu Dong, Jeffrey Chan, Rita LeBlanc, Buddy Patrick, and Matthew Vaughn.

STXfilms and Lakeshore Entertainment follow-up Brahms: The Boy II has also received a PG-13 rating for terror, violence, disturbing images and thematic elements.

Opening in theaters on February 21, the movie is a follow-up to William Brent Bell’s 2016 film The Boy (buy at Amazon), which grossed $68 million worldwide.

Katie Holmes (Batman Begins, Logan Lucky, Dawson’s Creek) leads the cast as Liza, with Christopher Convery (Gotham, The Girl in the Spider’s Web) co-starring as her son Jude. Owain Yeoman (American Sniper, The Belko Experiment) plays Liza’s husband, Sean, and Ralph Ineson (The Witch, Guardians of the Galaxy, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts I & II) plays the role of Joseph.

William Brent Bell again directs. Written by Stacey Menear, who also penned its predecessor, Brahms: The Boy II is produced by Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi and Eric Reid, in addition to Matt Berenson, Jim Wedaa and Roy Lee.

In The Boy II, unaware of the terrifying history of Heelshire Mansion, a young family moves into a guest house on the estate where their young son soon makes an unsettling new friend, an eerily life-like doll he calls Brahms.

Nothing Is What It Seems in The Woman in the Window Trailer

And the 20th Century Studios film The Woman in the Window, opening in theaters on May 15, has been rated R for violence and language.

In The Woman in the Window, a psychological suspense thriller directed by Joe Wright, an agoraphobic child psychologist befriends a neighbor across the street from her New York City brownstone, only to see her own life turned upside down when the woman disappears and she suspects foul play. A stellar ensemble cast brings Tracy Letts’ screenplay based on the gripping, best-selling novel to life, where shocking secrets are revealed, and no one — and nothing — is what it seems.

Starring Amy Adams, Gary Oldman, Anthony Mackie, Wyatt Russell, Brian Tyree Henry, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Julianne Moore, The Woman in the Window is produced by Scott Rudin, Eli Bush and Anthony Katagas.

The film is an adaptation of A.J. Finn’s book of the same name (buy at Amazon). The book is officially described as follows:
