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.
