New Line Cinema’s “IT: Chapter Two” has been given an R-rating by the MPAA, the rating handed out for “disturbing violent content and bloody images throughout, pervasive language, and some crude sexual material.”
That’s a harder rating than the previous film which scored an R-rating for the less intense “violence/horror, bloody images, and for language”. The rating comes as the film’s composer, Benjamin Wallfisch, has spoken a bit about the film when he appeared last weekend at San Diego Comic-Con.
Wallfish, who worked on both the previous film along with “Blade Runner 2049” and “Shazam,” couldn’t go into too much detail due to potential spoilers, but he had nothing but praise for the follow-up:
“It’s a really ambitious film. It’s Andy [Muschietti]’s masterpiece, it’s kind of growing from the first movie in a way which I dunno, I think none of us expected when we first started working on it. It’s incredibly powerful and emotional movie and it brings a cathartic end to this saga… I think you’re really gonna love it.”
“IT: Chapter Two” is currently slated to hit cinemas on September 6th.
