LOTR Gains PG Certificate in the U.K. - Plus official running time 15 minutes longer
It is seen as a boost in it's box office battle with the Harry Potter movie, which is also rated PG. The Fellowship Of The Ring had been expected to be given a 12 rating, however. The British Board of Film Classification saw the film last week, reports Variety. The running time for the first part of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy has also been confirmed as 2 hours 58 minutes. That's a quarter of an hour longer than expected.
The PG certificate says the movie may not be suitable for under eight years old. It also notes that it features "battle violence" and "fantasy horror". The Fellowship Of The Ring will have it's world premiere in London on December 10th. It will hit cinemas on December 19 worldwide.
