The Motion Picture Association of America has given Suicide Squad a PG-13 rating for “sequences of violence and action throughout, disturbing behavior, and suggestive content and language.” Director David Ayer had been aiming the the lower rating saying at CinemaCon:
“For an R movie, you have to decide to do it right out the gate, and that was never the case here. We were always going to hit the PG-13 rating. But the film is meant to be that. It’s got edge, and it’s got attitude. And it’s got its own voice … There’s a lot in the film that’s going to surprise people.”
There you go, kids.
