MAN-THING NOT FOR KIDS
It looks as if whatever knows fear really will burn at the Man-Thing?s touch. The MPAA officially gave the big screen version of Marvel Comics? Man-Thing an R-rating.
Rated R for violence, grisly images, language, and some sexuality.
Artisan must have some credit for having the balls to make an R-rated swamp monster movie based around a not all that popular third string comic book character, especially since the movie will have little in common with the premise of the comic. Now whether or not the movie version of Man-Thing is any good remains to be seen (and it may not make a dime at the box office), but you still have to give them credit for realizing you can't make a PG-13 movie about a monster that makes people incinerate. And it looks like we may even get some titty too!
We hope the movie turns out good because we're long overdue for a decent swamp monster movie. Well, that?s assuming it actually gets released this year. Man-Thing is supposed to open in October but no set date has been announced, and it?s already been bounced around before.
