Official MPAA Rating
for FOTR Released
I received this e-mail from a fellow Tolkien fan yesterday:
I don't know whether this is good news, bad news, old news,
new news, boring news, exciting news, or purple polka-dotted news; but MPAA has posted
FOTR Ratings on its website FWIW, here it is:
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
New Line Cinema
Rated PG-13 for epic battle sequences and some scary images.
I know PJ said it would be PG-13, but the MPAA puting its official stamp on it might be
food for thought to the fans.
