This development had been hinted at for some time, and even alluded to directly by Stallone himself.  But now it’s official…

The MPAA has officially decreed that EXPENDABLES 3 will be PG-13, in sharp contrast to the first two installments in the franchise, which were rated R.

…haunted by the specter of a PG-13 rating.  That filmed dodged a bullet, but said bullet was apparently a magic bullet and this new picture couldn't get out of its way.

THE EXPENDABLES 3 releases August 15.
