Tracy Morgan and Chris Rock in Death at a Funeral
 

 
April 7, 2010

The Motion Picture Association of America's Classification and Rating Administration released their weekly bulletin, which featured new ratings for Death at a Funeral, Animal Kingdom and Last Night.

Death at a Funeral received an R rating for "language, drug content, and some sexual humor." A remake of the 2007 British comedy of the same name, Death at a Funeral stars Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence and Tracy Morgan, among many others, and is set to debut against comic book adaptation Kick Ass next Friday.

Australian crime drama Animal Kingdom was rated R for "violence, drug content, and pervasive language." Starring Guy Pearce and Joel Edgerton, the movie debuted in January at Sundance, where it won the World Cinema Dramatic Grand Jury Prize. Sony Pictures Classics recently acquired distribution rights, though it has yet to officially set a release date.

Last Night, starring Keira Knightley, Sam Worthington and Eva Mendes, received an R rating for "some language." Originally scheduled for March 19, 2010, Last Night has been postponed indefinitely, which is likely a product of the shake-up that has been taking place with its distributor, Miramax Films, over the past few months. It's hard to imagine it won't get a release, though, considering it features Worthington, who is coming off Avatar and Clash of the Titans.
