Warner may want Terminator Salvation trimmed to PG-13

Terminator SalvationWe learned last weeksome of the music

McG, the movie's director, fueled further drama this weekend when he revealed efforts by Warner Bros. to cut a scene to secure a PG-13 rating, even though he said in the past that the film would get whichever rating he sees fit. /Film reports that the director called out a Warner Bros. executive by name who wants to remove a scene with a topless woman, ostensibly to earn a PG-13. All three earlier Terminator movies were R rated.

At this point, the report is mostly rumor, but fans will inevitably be on the case. In the meantime, check out the rock-heavy new trailer for the movie released yesterday:
