I agree. JJ is trying to widen the appeal of our beloved franchise, it wouldn't be possible if the R rating caused a limited market. I feel strongly that it will get the right rating.

So far, the only Trek movie that got more than a G or PG rating (in my country) is Nemesis, which scored an M.

We'd probably all benefit from an explanation of the "M" rating.

M is basically 'mature' - recommended for mature audiences (15+), but not restricted in the way that 'R' ratings are. R can range from R13 to R18, and no-one under that age is allowed in unaccompanied. Then there's the Restricted 16 and Restricted 18 categories, and it's actually illegal to show or supply those films to anyone under the specified age.

So basically, M is higher than PG, which is higher than G.

It'll be PG13 at the most. Studios will re-edit to get down to PG13 instead of R, as they want the biggest audience possible.

That said, the MPAA ratings are bullshi*t and I recommend the "This Film Is Not Yet Rated" documentary as an interesting glance into the culture of motion picture ratings.

I'm sure it's PG-13
If it's R I won't be seeing it either...

It'll be PG-13, though in the UK we actually have a 12 age certificate, which it might come under. But ratings don't get in the way at my age!!! So I'd see it anyway!!

Well, lets see, Star Wars had chopped limbs and heads and mass slaughtered children and was PG 13.

But Star Trek has boobs! Darn, make that PG 21. Is there a PG 21? Well, Mr. Abrams, PG 21 or a burka for Uhura, take your pick!

We also have 12a. Not suitable for under 12's unless accompanied by an adult. If Quantum of Solace can get a 12a them I cannot see why ST should not be either PG or 12A
