When I think about Lobo or a Lobo movie, I don't think PG-13.  To me, Lobo simply screams out for an R rating.  Producer Joel Silver is eager to bring the Main Man to the big screen.  During a group interview recently for another movie, Silver told Sci Fi Wire the following:

Lobo is one I'm very excited about maybe doing one day, hopefully soon," Silver said in a group interview on Saturday at the Los Angeles press day for Orphan. "I think we can do it. We've got a script we like.

I think it's structured now as a PG-13 movie," he said. "I think we've done it that way, but I love it. I've just wanted to make it for a long time, and I think it's a great character, a great guy.

While it's great to think we could actually get a Lobo movie, the idea of a PG-13 version reminds me more of when he was turned into a teenager:


I suppose the reality of it is it would need to be PG-13 in order to have a chance of being 'successful.'  Even most horror movies these days shoot for a PG-13 rating in order to allow more 'kids' to buy tickets to see it.  I still  have to wonder if there's any hope of this being good.

All they need to do to get a PG-13 is take Lobo out... wait a sec.

Well, I hope they can still find a way to make him the bad@$$ he is without getting rid of too much violence and all.

It could be pg-13 ,  he doesn't actually sware, and he's killing aliens with green blood and shit.  they're not humanoids.

The Lobo movie should look like that short film Andrew Brynarksi did that I posted a while back. I'm tired of all these PG-13 movies.

Exactly.  You can't have (what they call) tentpole movies if you're restricting your audience.

Lol I think DC should give it a shot though they already make great animated films better than marvel in my opinion so why not try a rated R film I mean Lobo already killed gods so they can't get more bad than that lol.

#14 Posted by Archetype (731 posts) - - Show Bio

eh not that big of a deal honestly.you can push the boundaries of PG movies pretty far nowadays.Besides I love the main man just a much as the next guy but it's not like he is a very serious character.He is like Deadpool...and do you honestly think Marvel would have made an R rated Deadpool? fuhgetaboutit!

#15 Posted by Decept-O (7280 posts) - - Show Bio

Here comes da hate:   Why even make a Lobo movie?   Maybe it could be fun but from the sound of it  they would remove all the things all the Lobo fans would want.  Typical.

#16 Posted by Methos (40103 posts) - - Show Bio

oh god, that news actually made me physically nauseous...
 
And i thought they couldn't cock up comic book movies any worse that Catwoman or Elektra... just shows me how badly Hollywood can screw up when they want to

True but the Punisher War Zone was finally done right. So as a fan I was happy, plus Punisher will never get the same treatment like Batman or Spider-Man will get.

I was just thinking about all the possible Wolverine movie contenders, like Lobo, Badger and Grifter, and how they'd translate to the screen, and here you post this!! But... PG-13?? @EisforExtinction Sure, if they took out Lobo. LOL

To make a Badger movie PG-13 they'd have to take out all the fight scenes. To make a Grifter movie PG-13 they'd have to take out all the shooting. Oh, never mind, just take Badger and Grifter out of the movies altogether.

PG-13 HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHA oh that's rich! Who are they making this movie for? Lobo Fans?

#27 Posted by acewasp23 (6087 posts) - - Show Bio

how can you make a Lobo movie and only have it be PG-13...
 it should at least be an MA.. or X rated (lot like Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2) movie..
they should try shooting for an R rated Movie..
Screw the Kids why would they want to see lobo any ways.. he's the main man.. not a child hood role model..

#28 Posted by Black\/Shadow (12 posts) - - Show Bio

Love Lobo, however a PG13 seems tame. Lobo is all about the awesomeness of violence and action. I guess in UK it'll be like a 12A? which does make it seem a little off already. I just don't want a terrible film!

It'll end up being the equivalent to Underdog @_@

Mind you, I'd be perfectly happy with this if they cast G-Man in the title role.

I also think that it could work, X2 was pg 13 but wolverine was still able to stab tons of people. All they have to do is go is have him beat more enemies, and if he uses guns or his hooks then just go low on the blood and he does kill mostly aliens, I see aliens get blown apart in movies all the time and they are usually pg13.

Ya, you've got a point from one perspective, but a lot of Lobo fans seem to see the alien killing as more akin to the Alien and Predator movies, The Thing, Heavy Metal or Doom, or even the Star Wars cantina scene. Really hardcore stuff.

#33 Posted by Nova`Prime` (4165 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't get where all the over reacting is coming from PG-13 isn't what it was ten years ago. You can get away with pretty much anything in a PG-13 movie, except nudity. So don't worry I am sure it will still have tons of explosions, deaths, and general cursing till your little hearts desire.

#34 Posted by GERALD (165 posts) - - Show Bio

All the wolverine x-men movies etc have been pg 13, it's not THAT big of a deal. Wolverine...Wolverine has been pg13 in every appearance.

They can still make Lobo a good franchise, just not show much blood. Not a big deal.

#35 Posted by ComicCrazy (1537 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't think they should even go through with this movie I don't thnk Lobo is a popular enough character,and he is kinda dumb.

#36 Posted by goldenkey (2927 posts) - - Show Bio

Who would you people pick to play Lobo.  I keep picturing Ron Pearlman for some reason and I don't want to do that.  Gotta be someone with good delivery, as the movie will be absured and have some kind of comic over veiw to it.  I betcha a beer drinking God will be in.  Dirty feet and all.

#37 Posted by DH69 (4258 posts) - - Show Bio

great guess i have to wait for an uncut dvd to get the real movie

#38 Posted by Citizen 14 (1236 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah from a profitable standpoint it is smarter, but this is lame.

#39 Posted by G'bandit (13689 posts) - - Show Bio

They can do a good PG-13 and make it as close to R as possible.. Is like the creator of Venom in the comic he pushed Venom to the limit until the publisher said "that's too much" they can do the same in the PG-13

AvP was a PG-13 yet we saw guts, head ripping, creatures popping out of the chest of people, aliens killing aliens and raping the predators etc.. They called it a "Not so PG-13 movie.." They can do that with Lobo :D

#40 Posted by Darkchild (41024 posts) - - Show Bio

NO

If the directors a real fan he will turn it into a R rated movie

I don't really know much about Lobo, but just by looking at him he looks kind of like he could be a Tim Burton character....??????????

#43 Posted by Akwa (4821 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't reall see a problem with this. Lobo doesn't actually swear and he kills aliens. Alien killing is an acceptable PG rating. To be frank, they can stretch the PG rating quite far these days.

#44 Posted by deadkid (32 posts) - - Show Bio

if the lobo movie pg 13   i  will  kill those bastards.

#45 Posted by Bruce Vain (1869 posts) - - Show Bio

If this movie does happen they need to get Andrew Brynarski damn it

#46 Posted by Harlekin (682 posts) - - Show Bio

It doesn't matter what they due there not a big enough fan base or a interest enough for this character's movie to be successful in theaters.

Those people saying give it a R rating, it's not going to happen after Watchmen, also whats wrong with a PG-13 rating? PG-13 may contain moderate language, minimal strong language, some explicit nudity, intense violence, gore, some sex, or mild drug content. Lobo doesn't really cuss, not to much sex in Lobos comics that I know about, you can still have intense violence, and gore, the only drugs I ever see him with are smokes and some booze this is all that needs to go in a Lobo movie..

It might due well on DVD.

lol I don't even like Lobo and I know he's far from a PG 13

Finally, a kindred spirit who understands me.  Lobo really is best served in an R setting.  The level of violence alone demands that.  I can understand financially why the desire for PG-13 as, after all, money is king.  However, Hollywood sacrificing the spirit of a character makes me sad.
