‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1’ Gets PG-13 Rating

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 gets PG-13 rating There had been much speculation in regards to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and its ability to lock down a PG-13 rating. The novel by Stephenie Meyer is one of the weirdest, whacked out entries in the entire series, containing scenes of torrid sex, gore, and violence that includes a man chewing threw a stomach to deliver a baby. It is decidedly R rated material.

Well, director Bill Condon and Summit Entertainment pulled it off, as the Motion Picture Association of America awarded The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 with its PG-13 rating today, which keeps it in line with the previous three movies and assures that teens are safe to see it.

The PG-13 rating for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 is based on the following.

"Disturbing images, violence, sexuality/partial nudity and some thematic elements."

It is rumored that there will be a slightly darker, unrated version of the film available on Blu-ray and DVD sometime in 2012, before the release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 was released November 18th, 2011.
