Alien Prequel to have an R-rating sign now

We the undersigned would like to express the greatest concern and dismay for the recently announced Alien Prequel, which is due to hit theaters in 2012. We all believe the integrity of the film is about to be seriously compromised and challenged by the "targeted" MPAA rating of PG-13.

Let us remind you that the very foundation of this incredible franchise was laid down by one of the most graphic and iconic images ever to be captured on celluloid, when an Alien burst through the chest of a crewmember of the Nostromo, in 1979. That awe-inspiring image, which left audiences around the world speechless and amazed, paved the way for three consecutive, and very successful, sequels. These images also inspired an entire generation to open their imaginations to the terrors of space and science fiction, which have since been reveled in and copied for more than thirty years. Images that wouldn't possibly have made it to the big screen under a PG-13 rating.

We believe it is in your best interest and, even more importantly, in the interest of the Alien Prequel(s) to proceed under both Ridley Scott's and the fan-base's wishes in keeping an R-rating. The dilution of both violence and language, principles of which this series has established itself upon, would appear forced and unnatural given the subject matter at hand and would ultimately be a step in the direction of a colossal failure.

It is understandable that due to the productions estimated $150 million dollar budget you wish to entice a younger audience in order to fill more seats, but we assure you that in doing so you will only negate the older generations interest, which will cost you far more financially in the long run.
Please consider that a poor film that doesn't deliver will only attract first time viewers, as opposed to a truly great film with even the harshest of ratings would guarantee repetitive viewings and a positive word of mouth! We assure you that the productions budget will be exceeded in sales as every other installment in this franchise has done so successfully in the past, even with an R-rating.

Lastly, we the undersigned believe that by toning the film down to a more "child friendly" version, you would not only be dishonoring what Dan O'Bannon had created but would be insulting his memory as well.
