“Alien: Covenant” Gets R-13 Rating from the MTRCB

Like its predecessor PrometheusAlien: Covenant got an R-13 rating from the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB).

You may check the rating from the MTRCB website here: http://www.mtrcb.gov.ph/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/FOREIGN-FILMS-AS-OF-APR25.pdf

This means only viewers who are 13 years old and above can be admitted. An “R13” classification advises parents, supervising adults, or the would-be viewers themselves, that the film may contain any of the elements that may not be suitable for children below 13 years of age.

The fact that Alien: Covenant is a horror space thriller and promises to be more horrifying than Prometheus, an R-13 rating is not surprising. The gore, the graphic violence and the imagery of how the aliens will terrify the audiences, it’s best for the film to be rated R than being cut and be showcased as a family movie (lol).

The crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world. When they uncover a threat beyond their imagination, they must attempt a harrowing escape.

Starring  Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride and Demián Bichir with Guy Pearce and James Franco. Directed by Ridley Scott.
