John Moore, director of the upcoming Mark Wahlberg starrer ‘Max Payne, has finally gotten his film a PG-13 rating, despite what he called “trimming frames for the sake of trimming frames.”
He told Game Daily that there will be an alternate cut for the DVD version:
“It’s a little slower and a little more atmospheric. There are some rougher edges on it, but it’s not going to be a bloodfest. I want this to be the Max Payne that I set out to shoot. It’s not that I wanted to release one version in the theaters and make a cheap buck by following up with a blood-drenched DVD version. The movie you see in the theaters will be an intense experience and the movie you see on DVD will be as intense an experience with some extra sensibilities for people who really adore the game.”
I think I’m not alone on this, but there will be a lot of people dissapointed in this rating, but at the end of the day, PG-13 brings in a lot more money for the studio.
