The “IT” Film Is Officially Rated ‘R’

New Line and Warner Bros. Pictures’ new film adaptation of Stephen King’s iconic monster novel “It” has received an official R-rating by the MPAA – just as expected as director Andres Muschetti and producers have mentioned several times in the past that they were shooting for an R.

The rating has been handed out for “violence/horror, bloody images, and for language.” The book famously includes plenty of dark material cut from or toned down in the previous TV adaptation, that shouldn’t be the case here bar the infamous teen gang bang scene which won’t be included.

Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Javier Botet, Nicholas Hamilton and Owen Teague star in the film which has Bill Skarsgard taking on the iconic role of Pennywise the Clown.

The film opens on September 8th with a new trailer expected sometime in the next few weeks.
