Neil Marshall's 'Doomsday' Is Rated R   

January 10, 2008 Things are moving fast on the "Doomsday" front. The next movie from the director of "The Descent" is hitting screens March 14 from Universal. It's just been rated R by the MPAA. Why?

"Strong bloody violence, language and some sexual content/nudity." Sounds like a damn good movie already!

In the film, a deadly plague, known as the "Reaper Virus," has broken out, killing hundreds of thousands in its wake. In desperation, the British Government evacuates as many survivors as it can out of the infected area, and then builds a wall, preventing the remainder from escaping. Thirty years later, with the wall still up and the victims all but forgotten, the virus breaks out again. The Government decides to send a crack team of operatives, led by Major Eden Sinclair, into the hot zone to investigate the possibility of a cure. It stars Rhona Mitra, Malcolm McDowell and Bob Hoskins.
