AWN reports that the MPAA rating board has given Paramount Pictures’ Team America: World Police an R rating. Previously cuts of the film were receiving the NC-17 rating. The all-marionette political and action film satire will launch in 800 theaters on October 9 and widen on the 15th. The film will be rated R for “graphic, crude & sexual humor, violent images & strong language; all involving puppets”. Apparently, scenes of graphic puppet sex had to be cut from the film to ensure it the R, which is part of creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s deal with the studio.
