Will The Expendables 2 Be Rated R After All?


Scott Adkins in The Expendables 2 (2012) Movie Promo Art by daz tibblesThe guys at StalloneZone indicates: Yes.

The site (aka “The #1 Sylvester Stallone Fan Site in the World!”) claims to have gotten word from Stallone himself, saying this:

After taking in all the odd rumors and hearsay, EXPENDABLES II is an R.

So there you have it. According to a site that claims to be the #1 Stallone fan site in the world, Stallone himself told them that “The Expendables 2″ will sport an R rating and not the PG-13 rating that was previously rumored, before being confirmed by Stallone himself.

But now Stallone says all that confirmation (which he sent into AICN himself, by the way), was just “odd rumors and hearsay”. Yeah, I don’t think Stallone quite knows what “rumors” and “hearsay” means, but then again, he can beat me up, so whatever, Sly.

“The Expendables” franchise, what with their stuffing of former glory days cinematic heroes, ceased to be anything that can even remotely be taken seriously after they added Chuck Norris. As such, I didn’t really care too much if the movie was PG-13 or R, but apparently lots and lots of you out there do care. This, if true, should help you sleep better at nights.

I wonder how Chuck Norris, the instigator of the PG-13 conversation, will respond to this, since if true, it’ll mean “The Expendables 2″ will look a lot like “The Expendables”, which means, yes, exploding bodies…

    I thought Chuck Norris wanted the PG-13 rating in order to cut down on the amount of cussing and not necessarily the brutality that is The Expendables.
