MPAA Releases New Movie Ratings System

 

MASON CITY, Iowa – You’ll soon be seeing something a little different when going to the movies.

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) is releasing a new way to rate movies.

There will be more prominent descriptions of why a movie is rated what it’s rated.

The new system is to give moviegoers a better idea of what content is in the film they’re about to see.

“They’re more informed first off so going to see something and realizing what kind of content is in it right away will help them decide on the spot instead of going to something and realizing, Oh maybe this was a bad choice for my family,” explains Missy Davis from Family Video in Mason City

The changes come after the White House called upon the movie industry to help parents monitor violence in media.
