CBn forum member danman007 reports today that Casino Royale has secured a PG-13 rating from the MPAA for its US release.
Rated PG-13 for ‘intense scenes of action violence, a scene of torture, sexual content, and nudity,’ this will be the sixth James Bond film in a row to feature this rating. All four of Pierce Brosnan’s 007 films as well as Timothy Dalton’s Licence To Kill also carried it.
The most recent Bond film, Die Another Day, was rated PG-13 for ‘action violence and sexuality.’
Casino Royale has not yet been classified by the BBFC, although 12A seems to be the rating most UK Bond fans are expecting.
