One of Quentin Tarantino’s requirements for working on this Star Trek movie is that like the rest of his movies, it needs to be stamped with an R rating, and J.J. Abrams and Paramount have agreed to that condition. Until now, the Star Trek movies, from 1979’s Star Trek: The Motion Picture to 2016’s Star Trek Beyond, have all been rated either PG or PG-13, so this will be new territory for the Gene Roddenberry-created franchise. (Though it is worth noting that CBS All Access’ Star Trek Discovery recently dropped an f-bomb, an R-parallel first.) While PG-13 blockbusters are usually better at drawing in bigger crowds, there are some exceptions to this, like last year’s Deadpool. Perhaps Star Trek can similarly be lucky. For Tarantino, nailing down the R rating now is important should he end up sitting in the director’s chair, as it will allow him the same type of creative freedom that he’s had with all his other cinematic projects, like Pulp Fiction and The Hateful Eight.
