James Gunn‘s version of The Suicide Squad will be quite a bit different than the 2016 take on the material in many ways, not the least of which is its MPA rating. Unlike Suicide Squad, released with a PG-13 rating, The Suicide Squad is coming to theaters with a hard “R.”
The Suicide Squad has just been rated “R” by the MPA for…
“Strong violence and gore, language throughout, some sexual references, drug use, and brief graphic nudity.”
Of course, this should come as no surprise to anyone who’s seen the trailers, which featured King Shark brutally tearing apart a human. Then again, even we didn’t expect “graphic nudity” from Gunn’s latest, and we can’t help but wonder if that’s got something to do with King Shark too. We’ll find out when The Suicide Squad comes to theaters and HBO Max on August 6.
The full ensemble cast for this year’s movie includes Margot Robbie in her third film as Harley Quinn alongside Viola Davis, Joel Kinnaman, Jai Courtney, David Dastmalchian, Daniela Melchior, Steve Agee, Idris Elba, John Cena, Storm Reid, Flula Borg, Nathan Fillion, Peter Capaldi, Pete Davidson, Alice Braga, Sean Gunn, Michael Rooker, Taika Waititi, Joaquín Cosío, Mayling Ng, Juan Diego Botto, Tinashe Kajese, Julio Ruiz and Jennifer Holland.
King Shark, we’ve learned, is voiced by Sylvester Stallone!
