'Star Trek Into Darkness'
Suitable for: Teens and older.
What you should know: This is the second "Star Trek" movie from J.J. Abrams with a new cast that features Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and Benedict Cumberbatch. The movie is available in 2-D, 3-D and IMAX and will lose little in 2-D (the conventional, less expensive format).
Language: At least a dozen mild four-letter words and a few other crude or offensive terms.
Sexual situations and nudity: A man is shown in bed with a couple of alien women. A woman strips to her underwear to change clothing. A few kisses are exchanged.
Violence/scary situations: Pretty much from beginning to end, with a fiery volcano, images of a gravely ill child, a deadly bombing and other attacks or confrontations that leave many injured or dead, gunfire, chases, people sucked out of a hole punched in an airborne vessel, the crushing of someone's skull, a development that may remind some of 9/11 and an emotional scene in which a key character sacrifices his safety and health for others.
Drug and alcohol use: Characters drink in a bar or club.
