Nerds Rejoice! 
On Monday, 20th Century Fox ended months of anxious speculation about the fate of Sir Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. The film has received an R rating for “sci-fi violence including some intense images and brief language.” In other words, it’s going to tense and scary film. 
While some may wonder if the R rating will hurt Prometheus' domestic box office tally, it seems unlikely. Adults go to the movies as well and teens as they often do will find their way into a screening. More importantly, does this rating hurt the film's chances in international markets? International box office performance has become more important than domestic. As long as Prometheus is a hit all over the world, the rating doesn’t matter.
