^Throw some children dying of radiation burns into a 21st century film and watch the MPAA start to twitch. While I agree that no Godzilla, including the original, merits a restricted rating as it stands, I that think if Honda was working today, his original vision of Godzilla would be more in line with an "R" mentality. He made a conscious effort to go as dark and violent as it took to get the themes across, and given the changing standards for violence in film, it's not hard to imagine the more graphic treatment that may have resulted today.
That being said, I voted for PG-13. We can be pretty sure that Legendary's film will not be a allegorical war film designed to horrify its audience. If it doesn't have the intellectual weight to merit the brutal treatment, then I have no interest in seeing a Godzilla film that's senselessly grisly.
