Orphan: First Kill
During a recent interview with Collider, Isabelle Fuhrman stated she believes audiences will be “shocked” by Orphan: First Kill.
I think people will be shocked by that story. It’s very different from what most people would expect and [Julia Stiles] is absolutely incredible in it, and we had a lot of fun making the movie together. It’s definitely a story about the two of us and our relationship, and Esther’s way that she came to the United States and how she found herself there.
What I hope is that Warner Brothers and DC watch The Tomorrow War and get really excited again about the Nightwing movie that we’ve been talking about, I hope that we get a chance to go out and make that Dick Grayson and Nightwing film. That particular part of Robin, growing from being under Batman to becoming Nightwing, and Bludhaven and all that stuff… It’s a really personal story to me.
The first two films in the Fear Street trilogy have been rated “R” for “strong bloody violence, drug content, language, sexual content, nudity and language throughout.”
Fear Street Part 1: 1994 – Rated R for strong bloody violence, drug content, language and some sexual content.

Meanwhile, M. Night Shyamalan’s Old has been rated PG-13 for “strong violence, disturbing images, suggestive content, partial nudity, and brief strong language.” [Bloody-Disgusting]
