Default PG or PG-13 rating for Trek?

Based on them making Zoe's skirt shorter and placing more emphasis on her breasts, then I think we will get a PG-13 rating for this. Nemisis was PG-13 I think. I think that since Paramount wants to market this movie to a wider audience than just pure Trek fans, then they will but a larger sex appeal into the movie. That is my take so what do you all think?

I feel the last 3 Trek films neeeded more of a PG-13 rating than a PG.

It's not so much the "skin" as it is the level of graphic violence. I have no objection to it, but won't take my small grandkids to see them.

The violence might also be notched up a level, good thing you mentioned it.

I think on one of the interviews at trekmovie.com with Abrams and his team, they said they plan to make it pg-13

Nemesis and First Contact both had a PG-13 rating.

I hope they keep it a decent rating...if they do that gross stuff in Nemesis then theres not much hope for the movie anyway.

Interview with Roberto Orci at Trekmovie.com dated Jan 28th, 2008.

Quote:
Firstly, in case you missed it, here are key tidbits from Friday’s chat with Abrams and his cast and crew (but do read the full transcript to get much more)

First full trailer currently in the works, targeting early- to mid-summer release
Principal photography is scheduled to wrap at the beginning of April [about 1-2 weeks more than originally planned]
Documentaries on the film’s pre-production and production process can be expected on DVD release; Making of… book also discussed
Greg Grunberg will not appear in Star Trek due to his commitment to another film
About 1,000 effects shots are expected to be used in the film (more than any previous Trek film)
Target MPAA rating: PG-13
The two biggest challenges for Abrams were getting a handle on the vision of the future and casting the film
Humor is a very important aspect in the film ("humor and humanity go hand-in-hand")
Abrams’ goal is to make Trek ‘real’ and is thus utilizing sets and location shooting rather than green- or blue-screens wherever he can
The Enterprise "will be a combo of the physical and the virtual"
An image of the Enterprise is "coming soon"
The doors on the Enterprise will go "SWOOSH!" when they open.

I thought the doors going "SWOOSH!" when they open was the most important revelation yet.

Oh hell, let's have a Rated "R" movie, and show some blood and guts.

J/K

These days Sci-Fi movies will have at least a PG-13 rating. Has anyone read the Ratings box on Nemesis? "PG-13: For Sci-Fi Action Violence and peril and a scene of sexual content". REALLY???? Give me a break...

Yeah, I loved how he actually said it.

"Question: Will the doors go 'swoosh'?"
"Answer: Dude, will they ever."
