Wes Anderson's film "Asteroid City" managed to obtain a PG-13 rating from the MPAA, despite featuring a fully nude scene with Scarlett Johansson, which would typically receive an R rating. The movie deals with mature themes but balances them with quirky humor and eccentric characters, following the director's signature style. Although not considered one of Anderson's best films, "Asteroid City" achieved modest success with a 74% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and earning $47 million worldwide. The film marks Anderson's first collaboration with Tom Hanks and the first time he includes nudity in his work. The nudity led to controversy but was ultimately altered to obtain the lower rating.
