Deadpool‘s $132 million opening would have been impressive under any circumstances, but it was especially noteworthy given the film’s R rating. The conventional wisdom has been that PG-13 is the way to go if you want to make lots of money, because an R rating, by its very nature, excludes a sizable chunk of the potential audience.

Rumor has it the studio is considering an R rating for the upcoming Wolverine movie, to be directed by James Mangold and star Hugh JackmanRead More »
