Movie rating system changing to better inform parents about violence

LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Motion Picture Association of America is making changes in its movie rating system -- saying it wants to better inform parents about violence in films. The new system, called the "Check the Box" campaign, will include a more prominent and detailed description explaining why a movie received a particular rating. One example read, "An intense scene of war violence, some images of carnage, brief strong violence." The White House has called on the movie industry help parents monitor violence in media since the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Conn.
