Del Toro’s ‘Crimson Peak’ Rated R, Plus ‘Black Mass’, ‘Knock Knock’ & More in Today’s MPAA Ratings

I have to admit, I’m a little surprised to see the R rating for Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak, not due to del Toro, but because I didn’t think a major studio would allow for an R-rated fantasy feature, as PG-13 seemed to be the highest bar they’d allow. Kudos to them for allowing del Toro to do his thing. I’m not even more interested in this pic starring Charlie HunnamMia WasikowskaJessica Chastain and Tom Hiddleston.

We also have an R-rating for Scott Cooper‘s Whitey Bulger feature Black Mass starring Johnny Depp and another for Eli Roth‘s Knock Knock starring Keanu Reeves.

Lone Scherfig‘s The Riot Club hasn’t enjoyed top marks on the festival circuit, but IFC will bring it to us later this year as an R-rated feature and just in the nick of time Paramount gets The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water a PG-rating.
