Things may get comparatively strange and steamy in the "Breaking Dawn" installment of the “Twilight” saga, but that doesn’t mean the MPAA rating for the two-part film adaptation will be taken up a notch.
The storyline includes a bedroom scene for Robert Pattinson's Edward and Kristen Stewart's Bella, and also depicts an...interesting pregnancy and delivery of the couple's half-vamp baby.
It gets so graphic that Pattinson has said he’s not quite sure how they’re going to keep it tween-friendly.
“There’s some interesting and weird stuff going on—really very, very, very strange. It’s great,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “For a big mainstream movie, it’s the most obscure story line and really outside the box. It’s a horror movie. I’ve seen a few bits, and I just can’t see how it’s going to be PG-13… unless they cut everything out!”
But, according to industry insider Anne Thompson, Summit Entertainment isn't about to deny teen ticket holders entry.
“Breaking Dawn will be a PG-13,” a rep for Summit said. “It will not be rated R.”
The first part of "Breaking Dawn" will arrive in theaters on November 18, 2011, with the second part bowing in 2012.
