"Star Trek" Gets Rating, Rated Poster, and New Photos

Posted on Monday, April 6th, 2009 4:13 PM by Scott Jentsch

The upcoming installment in the Star Trek franchise, aptly named Star Trek, is opening in theaters and in IMAX theaters on May 8th (32 days!) and we have just been notified that it has received its MPAA rating and a newly rated Theatrical poster to match, and Paramount Pictures has also provided three more photos for the movie.

The MPAA has bestowed its PG-13 rating for sci-fi action and violence and brief sexual content. This isn't a huge surprise, as most movies that are targeting the teenage audience needs to get that rating to allow the teens in, but to convey the impression that it's not a Disney cartoon at the same time. We've heard of some movies working very hard to cut scenes in certain ways to get their movie down from R, and intentionally using trigger words and scenes just to elevate it out of PG range.

The three new photos give us another look at Kirk and Spock, as well as bad-guy Nero, in action. These photos and the rated poster join the images already posted on the Photo Galleries page, making for a total of 42 photos available so far!

When you're done soaking in all the still photos, don't forget that we have trailers and TV spots available on the Trailers & Videos page.

And, because it's never to early to get your tickets for opening weekend, select theaters are already offering tickets online! Check out the Showtimes page to see if your favorite/nearby theaters are offering tickets yet!
