It seems just like The New Mutants might push the boundaries of what we expect from a PG-13 comic book film, but it was not intense enough to garner an R rating. The MPAA has very specific standards in its rating system, often having to do with vision, sex, and speech.
The Official evaluation for The New Mutants comes to people from FilmRatings.com, which will be automatically updated once the MPAA gives its official ratings/reasoning behind each new launch. The huge majority of comic book movies are really PG-13, although there has been a push for R rated content in the past few years.
And Josh Boone will lean into terror tropes at The New Mutants, many were expecting it’d be following in the footsteps of Deadpool and Logan. Unfortunately, the movie will rather be able to attract a wider audience.
THE NEW MUTANTS OFFICIAL TRAILER
Ahead of Deadpool’s release, comic Book movies were not rated R. Studios considered the era minimum restricting in the box office, presuming that an R-rated superhero film wouldn’t be as gain as its PG-13 counterparts.
That all changed thanks to Ryan Reynolds and the Merc with the Mouth, with different possessions taking the danger with their ratings, in exchange for more adult content and creative management.
The First trailer to get The New Mutants arrived back in 2017 and teased something wholly unique to the superhero genre. The final X-Men film is put in an asylum for young mutants, which is a terrifying prison that feeds on their fears.
The trailers feature some truly horrifying imagery, but now it is apparent that it will not be R-rated terror. We will just have to await the movie to hit theaters before audiences can observe how online is walked.
Other teenage mutants attempt to come to grips with their superpowers while staying at a secret facility.
