'Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn' Revising Scene For PG-13 Rating?
Reported by Outsiders - 11:15 PM 2010.06.16
First off, let me say I have never seen any of the Twilight Saga movies or read any of the books. What I have seen from the movie mainly comes from the trailers and clips that we post on the site for readers and members who are interested in the movie. Case in being, I have never considered these movie to be of the "horror" genre and I believe many will agree with me. Before I continue, I will throw in the spoiler warning so if you are interested and don't want to know anything than go to the next article posted but I believe if you watch the movies than you have read the books.
This being said coming off the last movie which will be split into two parts of "Breaking Dawn" comes a very over the top moment where Bella (Kristen Stewart) gives birth to her half-vampire or full-vampire baby. When I heard about this part that takes place in the book. I started to wonder what the whole deal is because I figure something had to be going on with the Vampire and the Human and the Werewolf. So I did some research and came across what appears to be a very details but tongue in cheek rundown of the "Breaking Dawn" book reported by CHUD.
Go ahead... I'll give you a minute to read about it on their site and you can come back with a look on your face of "Oh Damn!" Makes you wonder what was going through the mind of writer Stephenie Meyer when she did this book? Which brings back the whole point of this post but Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, who has adapted the books into the screenplays for the movies and was questioned by the LA Times about this whole 'scene' in the newest movie and how she will adapt the book scene into the movie scene:
“On the fan site, on Facebook, all the comments are “It has to be R rated! You have to show the childbirth! Gore and guts and sex!” For me it’s actually more interesting to not see it. You know, you can do childbirth without seeing childbirth … it doesn’t mean it’s any less evocative of an experience.”
Does this mean Rosenberg is going to change the story so the movie gets a PG-13 rating? Isn't the sort of cheating the viewers who want to see the books made into movies? Let us know what you think about this!
