The Humanity Bureau and More in This Week's MPAA Ratings Bulletin

View Chris Kavan's Profile

By Chris Kavan - 02/07/18 at 09:44 AM CT

Just when I thought I could count on the ratings board to keep me in good spirits while the snow piles up and the temperatures drop... they have to give me bupkis, nada, nothing, zip, ziltch, zero - that's right, a big, fat goose egg. There are no wide release films this week - and just a single limited release film (starring Nicolas Cage, so you know it's a keeper!) that I am going to struggle to even think about writing a decent paragraph for. Ugh, at least I can be happy with the knowledge that I will soon be seeing Black Panther, because this is just a depressing update.

So, yeah, we have The Humanity Bureau, a film I didn't even know existed until I saw it on this list and that somehow secured a limited release date for this April (though I doubt it will play in more than a handful of theaters before going hurriedly to video and/or streaming). What's more, the main star of this excellent film is none other than Nicolas Cage, the man, the myth, the legend (no word on how many people he will knock out dressed as a bear). The film takes place in a dystopian future where the Earth is suffering from the effects of global warming as well as a seemingly permanent recession. Cage plays an agent who works for the Humanity Bureau, an agency that exiles unproductive members of society to New Eden (which I'm sure is nothing like its name suggests). While working on an appeal case for a mother and her young son, he goes rogue in an effort to save their lives and their future. Look, Cage has transcended Hollywood to become an icon unto himself (and a memetastic giving tree to boot). While I'm sure Cage could do something phenomenal again, he's mostly just going from one movie to the next - Humanity Bureau might be a slight step up from his straight-to-streaming library of late, but I don't see it reviving any careers. Rated R for violence.

That's all, and I think I actually managed to make the most of it! Whew, be sure to thank the MPAA Ratings Board if you get a chance - and make sure to check out the full Bulletin below:
