The Next Three Days earned a PG-13 rating for "violence, drug material, language, some sexuality and thematic elements." This marked director Paul Haggis's first PG-13 movie, following R-rated releases Crash ($54.6 million) and In the Valley of Elah ($6.8 million). The action thriller, which finds Russell Crowe attempting to break his wife (Elizabeth Banks) out of jail, debuts Nov. 19 against Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (Part One).
The Red Dawn remake received a PG-13 rating for "sequences of intense war violence and action, and for language. While it remains technically dated for November, distributor MGM's financial woes have likely pushed it back to sometime in 2011.
Political thriller Casino Jack was awarded an R rating for "pervasive language, some violence and brief nudity." The movie details the downfall of Washington, D.C. lobbyist Jack Abramoff (Kevin Spacey), who is currently serving a six-year prison sentence for a handful of corruption-related charges. This isn't the first movie to cover the Abramoff scandal; documentary Casino Jack and the United States of Money opened in May and made $176,865. While Casino Jack has yet to officially receive a release date, it played well at the Toronto International Film Festival and is expected to hit theaters before the end of 2010.
