Paramount to Re-Release First Oscar Winner "Wings" in Theaters

Posted: May 1st, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Paramount to Re-Release First Oscar Winner "Wings" in TheatersSubmit Comment
Paramount Pictures and Cinemark theaters are partnering to re-release "Wings," a 1927 black-and-white silent film that was the first movie to wing the Oscar for Best Picture.

As a result, "Wings" had to be submitted to MPAA to get an officially rating since the film predates 1968, when the ratings system was first created. MPAA took a look at it and gave it a rating of PG-13 for "war violence."

"Wings" -- newly restored as part of Paramount's 100th anniversary this year -- will screen exclusively at locations featuring Cinemark XD Extreme Digital Cinema auditoriums, starting May 16th for two showtimes each day. The film will expand to fifty additional Cinemark locations two weeks later.

The movie revolves around two young men, one rich, one middle class, who become fighter pilots in World War I and who are in love with the same woman. It also won an Oscar for Best Effects.

If I didn't know any better, the studio was releasing a 3D version of this sh*t.

Go home f*ckers, we don't need your executive decisions.

The MPAA just had to throw in their rating ... f*ck the MPAA I am sick of these suits in their ivory tower trying to legislate morality, how about parents decide what their kids see . War violence ? really ? Well I guess no one has turned on a tv in the last ( minimum ) ten years . As per the movie ... netflix .

The MPAA rating system is voluntary. It exist specifically so that parents can choose what their kids can see. It does not censor, but merely inform. For instance, there was a five year old in the Cabin In The Woods showing i went to last night cause his parents decided that was a good movie for him to see. He cried and whimpered and the parents told him to be quiet. Poor kid. Dumb parents.
Cinemark theaters are very very very strict in this area. For instance, they would not show the movie SHAME because it was NC-17. However, this is probably more because NC-17 movies aren't big money makers. The MPAA simply apply a rating. The studio, who wants to make as much money as possible, then tweaks the film to get the rating they wish that they feel will maximize their profit. The MPAA is not to blame for the neutering of many films to a lame PG-13 rating. The studio is to blame, for pandering to the texting crowd and for DARING to want to make money ;)

Wasn't this the plot of Pearl Harbor? But with WWII instead?

I like how no one noticed that this film should have fallen out of copyright a long time ago. 85 years later and Paramount is still clutching at it. Bastards.

Nobody sees black & white movies that don't talk.

Don't know if the general audience would be able to connect... "an analog figure in a digital world".
