It’s official: Warner Bros. Suicide Squad has landed a PG-13 rating, the norm for summer tentpoles hoping to play to the widest audience possible, including families.

Every other film directed by David Ayer, including his most recent pic, Fury, was rated R.

Hollywood studios, however, are loath to slap their superhero offerings with an R rating. The one film daring to break the rule was Fox’s Deadpool, which stunned in earning north of $772 million at the worldwide box office earlier this year despite the restrictive rating.

Deadpool has prompted plenty of debate about whether other studios should follow suit; so far, no one else has been willing to make that move.

Generally speaking, there can be a fair amount of violence in a PG-13 title, but language and sex are another matter.

Suicide Squad, which revolves around an irreverent band of supervillains, is rated PG-13 for sequences of violence and action throughout, disturbing behavior, suggestive content and language, according to the ratings board.

Set to open in theaters Aug. 5, Suicide Squad stars Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Jay Hernandez, Adwale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood and Cara Delevingne.

Former Killing star Joel Kinnaman is returning to the Netflix fold once more, this time to topline the futuristic drama Altered Carbon.

Based on Richard K. Morgan’s 2002 science fiction novel, the series is set in the 25th century, when the human mind has been digitized and the soul can be transferred from one body to the next.

Kinnaman will star as Takeshi Kovacs, a former elite interstellar warrior known as an Envoy who has been imprisoned for 500 years. After getting downloaded into a future he previously tried to stop, Takeshi must solve a single murder — in a world where technology has made death nearly obsolete — in order to earn a chance at a new life on Earth.

The reboot/remake/whatever of RoboCop remains, for us, one of the more pleasant sci-fi surprises of recent times. Appreciating it wasn’t everyone’s tin of baby food, we liked that it had ideas of its own, tried something different, and took something of a gamble. It would have been even better had the need for a PG-13 certificate been removed, and thus RoboCop could have a proper gun. But that’s how things are right now, it seems.

The film proved to be a decent hit for Sony and its assorted distribution partners around the globe, with it bringing in $242m on its cinema release, and plenty more on home formats. Granted, it wasn’t cheap to make ($100m), and it didn’t do the business in the US ($58m), but elsewhere in the world – in China and the UK in particular – RoboCop was a good hit.

That said, there’s hardly been active chatter about coming back for another film. So we had a look around to find out what was happening.

As it turns out, it’s not a closed project at Sony, although it doesn’t appear to be one the studio is heavily pursuing. Nonetheless, we understand that it is still welcoming pitches for a further RoboCop venture. Our source confirmed that Sony hasn’t shut the project down, although it doesn’t appear to be a high priority.

If a further RoboCop film does get off the ground, then it’s a fair bet it’d be a Chinese co-production. The RoboReboot took $50m in China alone, and amongst the many Hollywood movies that have partnered with Chinese studios, a RoboCop 2.0 would actually lend itself to being partly set in China, given a thread from the first film.

It’s still in the balance whether RoboCop in Joel Kinnaman guise will return. But it’s certainly not a closed book.
