Doctor Strange is rated PG-13 for ‘Psychotropic Violence’

  • Article information gathered and summarized by: Jay Christoph

There has been few superhero movies willing to make the leap from a PG-13 Rating to a R-Rating for a more mature audience . Not withstanding this year’s Deadpool from 20th Century Fox , Batman V Superman : Dawn of Justice’s Ultimate Cut , which had an R-Rating for sequential violence and the animated Batman film : The Killing Joke . Marvel Studios continues to follow its ongoing PG-13 films and not jumping on the R-Rated film bandwagon. The phenomena of R-Rated superhero films will be extending its longevity, next year, starting with Hugh Jackman’s (alleged final Wolverine movie, that is supposed to be getting direction from violent comic book material, such as, Old Man Logan, among other inspirations.)

Here is the official synopsis from Marvel Studios

Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.”

 

The following is from ScreenRant:

“The exact meaning of “kaleidoscopic galactic intensity and other dimensional psychotropic violence” is up for debate. Still, based on that description, Doctor Strange features brutal battles involving the human psyche and worlds folding over on top of themselves – as The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) attempts to mentor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Swinton has said that the film will “pull some s**t out that no one has ever seen before,” and Marvel does seem to be pulling some Inception-style mind-bending trickery here, all things considered.”

Doctor Strange opens in theatres November 4, 2016.
