Well Alien's been re-rated a 15. I'm happy; Prometheus clearly is going to be as scary and intense as Alien... if that's possible!

You are missing the point. They are there're own original films. Prometheus is a prequel to Alien. Therefore should share the same tone of terror. Making it 12s is only in the interest of greedy studio fat-cats. It was made without compromise , thankfully, and got the rating it got. Its the same reason why a toy story prequel shouldn't be 18 rated.


*puts on best Jules from Pulp Fiction voice* you make an interesting point...

official BBFC rating
15 - Contains strong violence, gore, threat and horror
http://www.bbfc.co.uk/CFF286710/

sounds abit better than the R rating eh? 'sci-fi violence including intense images, and brief language'

anyway heres how Prometheus compares against the other BBFC Alien ratings:

Alien(DC) 15
Contains strong language, moderate violence and horror

A3 18
Contains strong bloody violence, horror and language

A4 18
strong horror and violence

AvP 15
Contains moderate horror

AvP2 15
Contains strong gory violence and language

Terminator 4 (12)
Contains moderate violence and intense action scenes

..As any Alien movie should have, but thankful we are getting a 15.Now all i need to do is find a cinema that will show it in the NORMAL way.Not having any more of this 3D bullshit.


Amen.

As for the certificate, whilst I acknowledge waltham's point that a classification shouldn't always set the basis for the intensity of a film, I would have been extremely worried had Prometheus received a12A. As others have mentioned, an Alien film needs to do a little more than suggest terror given its origins of chest bursting & so forth.

Also, giving it a 15 ensures no stupid parents will attempt to bring their toddlers with them (casing point, the Avengers).

...at least you knew what you were getting!

Most horror is 15 these days...and anything that's 18 is usually crap .

What is "brief language" anyway? - 12/5/2012 12:21:26 AM

Well, these explanations never cease to ask for making fun of them. Obviously it's neither "strong language" as in Alien, nor "[just average] language" like in Alien³. One would suspect that "brief language" is to distinguish from "long-winded language" and a dialogueless film would get the description "no language" ;)

The term "strong bloody violence" should be given a warning due to the word bloody. Perhaps "this classification contains bloody strong language"

Realistically if both Alien and Aliens were released today they would be rated 15 to. So about right.
