Poison: Let There will be a slaughter Director Andy Serkis says the Marvel sequel is pushing the boundaries of the PG-13 rating.
With R-rated superhero films like Logan, Deadpool, and joker to great success, many hoped so Poison: Let there be slaughter would receive treatment for adults only. The movie’s characters lend itself perfectly to a mature, gory story, so it was a breeze for the coveted but young, audience-limiting R. Poison: Let there be slaughter managed to get a PG-13 rating just like its predecessor. While some may be disappointed that they won’t see their favorite heroes and villains in their bloodiest form, director Andy Serkis has assured fans that the film has exceeded the PG-13 rating.
Chatting with IGN, director Andy Serkis opened up about the Poison The sequel rating and how a PG-13 was needed in order for the Tom Hardy film to reach a larger audience.
“You could go down an R-rated adult version of it. Of course you could. You could have done that with the last movie. But we wanted to reach a large audience with it and … there are some rules to be followed. Still, I think we went to the limit [with] the danger and darkness and the menace and menace of Carnage. “
“Just because you don’t see that much blood – maybe there isn’t that much blood, or… to see heads bitten off – you can still suggest that. The proposal, left to the imagination of the audience, can be just as powerful. I think that’s exactly what we managed to do. It certainly doesn’t shy away from the dark. And the true heart of Carnage as a character is not compromised at all. “
Andy Serkis has a valid point of view. Movies like Quiet place, Indiana Jones and the temple of doom and The dark knight have postponed the PG-13 assessment on its extreme limits and made it, although it’s not just for adults. It remains to be seen how far Poison: Let there be slaughter pushes the boundaries of evaluation from the audience’s perspective.
