According to Shia LaBeouf in an interview with IESB.net, when the first cut of the upcoming film Transformers was sent to the MPAA, it came back with a rating of R.

LaBoeuf said that the film was given the rating because of intense action and violence, but that Spielberg went to the MPAA, argued the rating, and was able to get it knocked down to PG-13.

KJ's Take:  Hell yea.  This is seriously my #1 most anticipated film of the Summer.  Oh golly gee it's a Michael Bay film, oh blimey he can't direct, it won't be any good by golly ... Shut your trapper! 

Autobots, Transform and roll out!!!
