Font identified as Major Production NF.

My understanding is that there is no font. These are just graphics (and, as Philippe alluded to, inconsistent in style). I knew, though, that I had seen a new release font that mimics these but couldn’t find it until now (it was referred to on Typophile.com).

I predict that this font, which incorporates both movie titling and MPAA ratings symbols, becomes a best seller for Nick Curtis.

Yes, that ‘C’ will always look out of place.

Believe me, it’s definitely a font. I saw a poster at the movie theater yesterday that all the text was written with the font. I don’t think they would make characters and not a whole font family.

John - are you part of dafont.com?

And it was not unusual for each movie production house to stick whatever font they wanted for a rating system...

Maybe one day they will get their act together.

Font identified as Melior.

Appears to be derived from old Linotype version of the Melior font, possibly extended to some degree.

Melior is a good guess, but it’s not the same. You can see that the serifs in the movie rating font are rounded. Although Melior has similar rounded brackets, (as seen on the ‘P’ or the ascender of the ‘R’) the serifs are square.

Also, there is a rectangular shape caused by the drastic contrasting stroke weight that is quite noticeable in forms such as ‘G’ and in the bowl of the ‘R’ or the ‘P’. Melior, being a very circular typeface, lacks this.

The contrasting stroke widths in the poster font create a more rectangular shape that is quite noticeable in forms such as ‘G’ and in the bowl of the ‘R’ or ‘P’.
