Brandon Cronenberg
And Mia Goth's Infinity Pool
Was Originally
NC-17, Surprising No One
Brandon Cronenberg’s upcoming sci-fi thriller "Infinity Pool” was re-edited in order to avoid the NC-17 rating that’s typically reserved for adult films. The rating is often a death sentence for any film pursuing a theatrical release, but it’s unsurprising for “Infinity Pool” since its director often explores themes of sex and death.
The film's original rating was based on “some graphic violence and sexual content,” but has now been given an R rating due to its slight re-edits. The new R rating is for "graphic violence, disturbing material, strong sexual content, graphic nudity, drug use, and some language."
Mia Goth and Alexander Skarsgård portray a wealthy couple on an all-inclusive resort vacation, where outside their paradise something dangerous and seductive waits. There's no word on whether or not we'll ever see an NC-17 director's cut, but either way, it sounds like a party to us!
