There's been heavy speculation over whether Ridley Scott's sci-fi horror film Prometheus would receive an R-rating.  The blockbuster film carries a big price tag, and a PG-13 rating would probably mean a much higher take at the box office.  However, when Steve spoke with 20th Century Fox CEO Tom Rothman, Rothman said the movie "will not be compromised either way," and the studio would accept whatever the MPAA handed down. According to a pre-sale ticket stub, the MPAA has handed down an R-rating for Prometheus.  I'm not sure if that automatically makes the movie better, but I'm happy for the opportunity to see an ambitious summer blockbuster with an R-rating.  The last R-rated sci-fi summer blockbuster I can recall is 2003's The Matrix Reloaded.  However, it's late and I'm tired, so I might be forgetting another R-rated summer sci-fi movie released since then. Prometheus opens in 3D on June 8th. »
