As you might have noticed, all of Disney’s recent live-action remakes of their animated films have scored PG ratings – until now. Mulan just landed a PG-13 rating, making it the first of these remakes to suggest something slightly more mature than what we’ve seen from Disney so far. The rating is due to “sequences of violence”, which makes sense since the story involves the main character going off to war. But the original 1998 film did as well – and still managed a G rating.

Sony is Making a ‘Crossfire’ Movie Adaptation (But Don’t Get Too Excited, Because It’s Not About the Board Game)

Though the Crossfire board game was originally released in the early 1970s, ’90s kids will surely remember its ridiculous, over-the-top, and awesomely cheesy commercials with kids in leather jackets duking it out in the game while lightning flashed and an epic song played in the background. Now Sony has decided to make a Crossfire movie, but it’s not a futuristic sci-fi feature set in a world where life or death is decided by who wins the game. (Where’s that movie, Hollywood?) Instead, the stud...
