The Boss, Race in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

View Chris Kavan's Profile

After a couple of weeks of some pretty big updates, we're going to slow down with a minor update this week. There are a couple of major films getting ratings, but don't look for them any time soon as both aren't going to be released until next year (one earlier than the other). One looks promising - a biography of Jesse Owens with emphasis on his historic performance at the 1936 Olympic games. The other is the next comedy from Melissa McCarthy, who has proven a major draw in theaters these past few years. Other than that - we'll have to wait and see if the coming weeks bring bigger things.

Up first is the biography drama, Race, the film centering on track and field star Jesse Owens with emphasis on the 1936 Olympics held in Germany, where Hitler's vision of Aryan supremacy would be shattered by Owens' historic performance. Stephan James takes on the roles of the man, with a supporting cast including Carice van Houten as filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl, as well as William Hurt, Jeremy Irons, Jason Sudeikis and Amanda Crew among others. Despite coming out the rather dead time of February, Race is the kind of film people who vote on awards like. Oscar bait? Maybe - but that doesn't mean it can't also be a good film. We'll see what the general consensus says. Race receives a PG-13 for thematic elements and language.

On the other hand, there is The Boss. This is the latest comedy from Melissa McCarthy who has enjoyed a string of hits - even when critics are a bit harsh (like Tammy), the film still manages a to make a tidy sume ($84.5 million in this case). The Boss sees concerns Michelle Darnell (McCarthy) who is a leader in her industry, until getting caught red-handed and sent to prison for insider trading. Once released, she'll think she'll be embraced by open arms when she re-brands herself, only to learn not everyone is ready to give her such a warm welcome back. If the supporting cast is any indication - it should be a lot of fun - Peter Dinklage, Kathy Bates, Margo Martindale, Kristen Schaal, Kristen Bell, Tyler Labine and Cecily Strong all bring their talent here. I'm especially hoping Dinklage can win by my trust in his film career after somehow choosing Pixels to flex his muscles. In any case, this should have no trouble making bank, simply by taking into account the amount of talent on board. The film is rated R for sexual content, language and brief drug use.

That is it for the big dogs, but check out the complete ratings bulletin below:


Rated PG-13 for some drug material, language and suggestive content.
